SGT Training Ltd provides fully accredited operator training for both novices having never operated a forklift before and experienced operators who require refresher training. We train on all makes and models as well as offering conversion courses from one truck type to another.

The counterbalance lift truck is the most commonly used type of truck and is found in nearly all workplaces which require the use of a lift truck.

They come in many sizes and lifting capacities from 3 wheeled electric to diesel powered machines with a lifting capacity up to 50 tonne. Most common types are capable of lifting up to 3000kgs and are usually powered by electric, diesel or gas. Please see below for operator experience descriptions.
