A Brief Explanation

It’s the most common type of forklift licence which is used in many industries worldwide and is generally the first option for novices with no previous experience.

The reason why it is called a counterbalance forklift is due to the fact that there is weight on one side of the vehicle to counter a load which is balanced evenly on the forks at the front. It’s an effective design which has been unchanged for many years and still continues to be used today.

For the more experienced operator who wishes to get their counterbalance forklift licence we offer 1 day conversion training. We also run refresher courses for forklift drivers who wish to just brush up on their forklift driving skills.
