Counterbalance forklift trucks are the most common type of forklift truck, therefore keeping your forklift training up to date for this type of truck is crucial.  On counterbalance trucks, the forks protrude from the front of the truck, with no outrigging legs or arms – this means that the truck can be driven up to the exact location of the load, this type of truck leans itself to straightforward operation. Counterbalance trucks are available as electric, gas or diesel powered – if you’re in the market for a new forklift truck, take a look of the range of new and used forklift trucks here at Permatt. For Counterbalance trucks; we provide a full novice course, a refresher course for those out with their yearly refresher and a 1 day refresher course to keep the regular users in date, the courses are specialist and for that reason have a maximum of 3 trainees per course.
