Side Loader

Side loaders operate by picking up their load from the side, from the perspective of the operator. They are designed to handle wide (or long) loads that would otherwise be unstable on a conventional counterbalance machine.  Side loaders are excellent for handling lengthy materials such as timber, piping and sheets.

We offer certification on the Side Loader from the following awarding bodies: RTITB, NPORS, CPCS.
