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 a customer’s site (enquire to get a quote).


Lorry mounted loaders usually draw 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 a thorough knowledge of the lorry loaders operation.
