Rough Terrain Masted Forklift Truck

From 1 Day at £399 + VAT per day for 3 persons

This rough terrain masted forklift truck training course is for trucks that are used on uneven terrain or environments where the ground is not dependable. They are usually used within agriculture and construction, so anyone looking to transfer or refresh their skills will need to take this RTITB standard course. These trucks tend to have a higher ground clearance than standard forklifts of LGV’s, so it is essential that anyone operating these trucks has the correct training for the specific type of machine.

These trucks are very common on farmland where the surface is uneven, and are rarely used in factories or warehouses. They are also common in construction to deal with the rough terrain of a building site.
