These little loaders are frequently seen bouncing around work sites, performing tight turns and delivering loads at high speeds. The problem is they should not be bouncing along nor should they be operated at excessive speed due to safety considerations. A smooth operator is one who can perform with a high output, but with much more care for the machine and those working nearby.
Operator and machine performance go hand-in-hand; the smoother and more skilled the operator is, the more effectively they perform and the less stress is placed on machine components. Training helps identify and correct operator weaknesses, thereby guaranteeing a more safe, productive and efficient worker.
