What Is The Difference Between A Counterbalance And Reach Forklift?
There are many different types of forklift trucks and each is designed to suit a different purpose. It's common that one forklift operates better outside whereas another has the ability to reach loads located high up in racks.
Counterbalance Forklift Trucks
Counterbalance forklift trucks are the most common type of forklift truck, and the type most people instinctively think of when thinking of forklifts.
On counterbalance trucks, the forks protrude from the front of the machine, with no outrigging legs or arms, meaning the truck can be driven up to the exact location of the load or racking. This means that no reach facility is required, and lends itself to straightforward operation.
Reach trucks are designed predominantly for warehouse operation. They offer maximum lift height with excellent manoeuvrability.
The name refers to the ability of the fork carriage to ‘reach’ out beyond the stabilising legs and therefore ‘reach’ into racking. The combination of this reach capability and the stabilising legs means reach trucks can lift to great heights (in excess of 10 metres) while still operating in very tight working environments.
Training on the safe and effective use of reach trucks is delivered throughout all types of industry, and across variants developed for more specialist applications (for example, multi-directional, outdoor use, high bay working with CCTV).
HIAB training courses include:
Responsibility of the operator
Basic Hydraulic Systems
Daily Safety Checks

HIAB Training is available to:
Novice, Experienced, Refresher, Conversion.
Hiab training teaches candidates how to load and unload from the back of a vehicle that has a lorry mounted crane attached. There is no difference between the two, Hiab is a popular brand name and has become synonymous with lorry mounted cranes.
A lorry loader can take on the tasks of transporting large amounts of material to, and from and around construction sites. Their usage saves a lot of time allowing labour to be used more effectively and efficiently.
Anyone wishing to operate a lorry loader should have completed training in the assessing, setting up and executing of various lifting processes.
