A counterbalance forklift is the most common type of truck used in the UK. The counterbalance truck uses a counterweight at the rear of the truck to offset, or counterbalance, the weight of a load carried at the front of the truck. They can be used in a number of different environments and can lift a variety of heavy loads.


We provide training on the following categories:

Novice training - Operators with no previous experience.
