Class III: Electric Motor Hand Trucks or Hand/Rider Trucks

These electric hand trucks and pallet jacks only lift loads a few inches off the ground. Featuring tight maneuverability, they come in both rider and walk behind (“walkie”) models and are ideal for quickly unloading deliveries from tractor-trailers and moving loads to a staging area where they can then be handled by other machines.

These are hand-controlled lift trucks where the operator controls the machine using a steering tiller that has controls mounted on top. They are best for short runs and small warehouses. Weight capacities range up to about 8,000 lbs. Walk behind stackers, both counterbalanced units and those with straddle legs, fall into this category. Both of these stackers have the ability to lift to heights commonly found on forklifts.Type your paragraph here.

Class VII: Rough Terrain Forklift Trucks

Featuring big, tractor-style tires that provide plenty of traction to handle even the most challenging outdoor terrain, these rugged trucks are almost exclusively powered by diesel engines and used outdoors. Available in two-wheel or four-wheel drive, they may be equipped with a traditional straight mast or a telescoping mast to provide far greater reach.

They’re often used at lumberyards or at construction sites where crews need to lift building materials to high-elevation work sites. Operating them requires additional training because the load may be telescoping out rather than simply being lifted straight up and down. Weight capacity runs 6,000-12,000 lbs. or above.Type your paragraph here.

This training is hosted by TEXAS Training Center at your facility and with your equipment. The course is made up of classroom lecture with audio visual aids, videos, powerpoint & test that cover all applicable regulations. The class ends outside/shop using your equipment with Hands-On Training including Operator’s Daily Checklist Orientation, a Driving Familiarization Session, and an Operator Performance Evaluation. Duration of class is generally 4 hours for one subject or 8 hours for both Forklift & Aerial Lift. Five person minimum per class. Maximum depending on your size facility.

OSHA’s standard for Lift Truck (Forklift / Aerial lift / Backhoe) in general industry,
29 CFR 1910.178(l) (4) (iii), states:

When to recertify. An evaluation of each powered industrial truck operator’s performance shall be conducted at least once every three years.​

Aerial lifts

Often considered to be in a class of their own are aerial lifts, which give a single operator the ability to boom himself up to a hard-to-reach area in a “man basket.” This category includes a wide variety of personnel lifts, including boom lifts and scissor lifts.Type your paragraph here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Class IV: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks (Solid/Cushion Tires)

These are sit down forklifts are designed for indoor use with solid, cushioned tires — powered by internal-combustion (IC) engines that run on diesel fuel or, more commonly, LP gas. They are considered ideal for moving pallets from the loading dock to storage and vice versa. Cushion-tired lifts tend to ride lower to the ground than pneumatic-tired forklifts, making this type of forklift well-suited to low-clearance situations.

Electric lifts are, of course, more common for indoor applications, but reasons for selecting an IC-powered forklift over an electric model for indoor use may include:

·         Lower acquisition cost

·         Less down time spent refueling/recharging

·         Impact on warehouse space (no battery-charging stations needed)

Weight capacity for Class IV forklift ranges from 3,000 to 15,500 lbs., but more powerful specialty models with capacities of up to 80,000 lbs. are also available.

Class VI: Electric and Internal Combustion Engine Tractors

Often called a “tugger,” these versatile machines are most commonly used for pulling loads from Point A to Point B rather than lifting. Available in both electric and IC-powered models, they are great for a variety of applications.

One high-profile example can be seen at any airport — when you look out the window and see a rugged, low-slung tractor towing a train of luggage carts from the terminal to the plane’s storage compartment.

“How often do I have to re-certify?”
29 CFR 1910.178(l) (4) (iii), states; An evaluation of each powered Industrial truck operator’s performance shall be conducted at least once every three years.

“Do I have to train on ALL the different kinds of Forklifts our company has?” OR “My company rents the Forklifts/Aerial Lifts/ Backhoe we use. Is this ok?”
CFR 1910.178 (I) (5), states; Avoidance of duplicative training. If an operator has previously received training in a topic specified in Paragraph (I) (3) of this section, and such training is appropriate to the truck and working conditions encountered, additional training in that topic is not required if the operator has been evaluated and found competent to operate the truck safely.

“What is considered a powered industrial truck?” 
Powered Industrial Trucks, commonly called forklifts or lift trucks, are used in many industries, primarily to move materials. They can also be used to raise, lower, or remove large objects or a number of smaller objects on pallets or in boxes, crates, or other containers. Powered industrial trucks can either be ridden by the operator or controlled by a walking operator.​
