Increase Warehousing Efficiencies with Pivot Steer Truck Training

(Posted on 09/04/19)

The Pivot Steer lift truck – also known by the truck brands Bendi, Flexi or Aisle Master– enables operators to enter tight aisle to manage stock held in racking systems. Whilst pivot steer trucks tend to be more expensive than their rigid counterbalance alternatives, companies looking to optimize their operating space can enjoy significant benefits when it comes to creating a more efficient warehousing system.

The greatest advantage offered by the pivot steer lift truck is its flexibility; it enables companies to have closer racking and more storage space. It is the only truck available that can be used to put away or take out pallets and load or unload trailers; typically, you would need to change trucks to complete both jobs.

For the driver, pivot steer lift trucks offer excellent visibility. It is designed for a narrower stacking aisle and as well as operating at various heights, it can side shift loads as required.

All courses are designed to support drivers to operate the truck safely, efficiently and with confidence and competence. These courses comply with the Approved Code of Practice for operator training.

The pivot steer truck differs from all other trucks, due to its stability triangle being the opposite way around. It also drives differently and as well as legislation and theory, our comprehensive courses cover the way it drives, lifts and deposits both laden and unladen pallets. Our highly experienced instructors provide a thorough demonstration for the learner to follow until they reach the required standard as set out by the Accrediting Bodies Association (ABA) Work Transport 2012.
