Why Angus Lift Trucks?

Here at Angus Lift Trucks, we pride ourselves on being an Accredited Forklift Truck Association Member. We offer reach truck forklift training courses that are RTITB-accredited. Our variety of training classes and refresher courses cover all models and makes, including reach truck training.

Our fully-accredited reach truck forklift training is offered either at our facility on-site or in your work environment, across the UK in areas like Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Birmingham, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Derbyshire, West Midlands, East Midlands, to name just a few. All of our reach truck instructors are certified and accredited, and they have experience training and workling with new and seasoned operators.

Our Reach TruckTraining Courses

Reach truck training courses are increasingly popular, as these forklifts are designed to be operated in a warehouse environment for a wide variety of applications. They can work in tight aisles less than 2.5 metres wide. Despite their compact size, they can reach over 10 metres high.

Their maximum lift height does not compromise on manoeuvrability as the reach truck’s load does not protrude. It can reach beyond its stabilizing legs, conveniently negating the need for a counterbalance.

There are a few considerations that need to be made by the forklift operator. Each reach lift model uses an articulated steering system with which the operator needs to be familiar with and trained on. Reach Truck Operators also sit facing sideways for greater visibility, and this may take some getting used to for new drivers who did not receive reach truck training previously.
