Vehicle Mounted Hydraulic Lorry Loader Training (HIAB Training)

Lorry loader training teaches drivers to load goods on and off a vehicle or trailer bed, to which the lorry loader is attached. A Lorry Loader Course can be delivered on GTA’s site or on a customer’s site (enquire to get a quote). Lorry mounted loaders usually draw power from the lorry’s engine to power the hydraulic pump. Candidates on this training course will learn the safe and responsible way to operate and gain thorough knowledge of the lorry loaders operation.
