These trucks have been used for many years on farms and are now very popular on building sites and garden centres due to their ability to carry an assortment of loads via forks or bucket over muddy or uneven ground.
These larger trucks will have retractable stabilisers to ensure maximum stability when lifting loads above 9 or 10 metres. They also have the ability to steer with all 4 wheels enabling them to manoeuvre in relatively tight spaces. Some have the capacity to lift up to 4,000 kgs to a height of 20 metres.
Training on these trucks is essential for operators to understand how easily these trucks can fall over. For more information on training see our Rough Terrain Training Course
