ATTACHMENT TRAINING

ATTACHMENT TRAINING

We provide forklift attachment training on a wide variety of attachments on customer premises throughout the UK. Attachments extend the versatility of lift trucks and other equipment, enabling them to handle a wider variety of goods, but the importance of operator training in the use of specific attachments should not be overlooked.

Changing over attachments require operator of the machine to be familiarised with the new attachment and know its abilities. Machine’s rated capacity plate should be updated by the supplier immediately.
