Heavy equipment refer to vehicles of heavy-duty designed specially to execute construction tasks, especially the earthwork. These are also known as heavy trucks, machines, construction equipment, heavy hydraulics, heavy vehicles or engineering equipment. This entails to implement, structure, traction, power train, information and control.
The functions of heavy equipment offer the benefit of mechanical advantage as in a simple machine. The force extended is the input force applied that is multiplied with the force exerted. In fact, some equipment as a primary motion source uses hydraulic drive. This is the reason employers assure that the operators are competent to safely operate and this is possible only after successful training program completion and that includes practical hands and theory instruction on evaluation.
Counterbalance Forklift: This is a truck known as lift truck, a tow-motor or a forklift. It is an industrial powered truck employed to transport and lift materials.
Telehandler (Zoom Boom) Forklift: This represents a machine that is extensively useful in industry and agriculture. It functions identically as a forklift and is also similar in appearance, but is a crane basically with enhanced versatility of any telescopic boom extending upwards and forwards from the vehicle. At the bottom end the operator can fit attachments such as pallet forks, bucket, lift table or muck grab.
Aerial Boom Lift: This is a type of platform consisting of a bucket or platform at a hydraulic lifting system end.
Scissor Lift: This is a mechanical device employed to offer temporary access to inaccessible areas, especially at heights.
Skid Steer: This is a rigid frame skid-steer loader, an engine powered machine featuring lift arms. This is used to attach labor-saving tools. They feature tracks and are four-wheel vehicles featuring mechanically locked wheels on each side and the drive wheels on the left-side are independently driven of the drive wheels on the right-side.
Obtaining training to operate heavy equipment helps as they are helpful for reputable construction, electrical, manufacturing and government agencies or companies. The benefits of acquiring proper skill and knowledge include:
- Compliance with the job site and the workplace
- Fewer risk of accidents
- No reason for work stoppage
Acquiring certification and training allows people to apply it for all models, makes and sizes. The training is offered on site. In fact, nowadays, the on site training comes to your location to deliver relevant courses as per workplace requirements. In this way, one really benefits by:
- Acquiring hands-on training in the work environment actually
- Employee or the operator downtime is reduced
- On-site consultation is direct
The training programs offered are compliant with provincial and federal regulations, besides industry standards. Owing to the high standard of training and expansiveness we offer, these are recognized as the appropriate learning as all the equipment are addressed.
