This training prepares the learner to operate a reach truck safely. This equipment’s flexibility makes it more important to understand how to evaluate rated capacity, pick and place loads and clear racking. These trucks have an articulated carriage that can reach, tilt and shift from side to side, requiring the operator to have a greater understanding of safe usage. Topics covered include how the truck works, how to perform inspections and how to safely operate the truck.
