Front End Loader One-Day Basic Course
Basic Front Loader One-Day Course
When a lot of material needs to be moved or loaded into a dump truck, hopper or bin, the front-end loader (also known as a payloader) is the machine of choice. Here on Long Island where snow removal, hurricane clean-up and beach erosion require sand or debris movement, the front-end loader can be indispensable.
Students will be introduced to the front-end loader, learn to identify the main components of the equipment, the machine’s capabilities and maintenance requirements (fuel, oils, filters, etc.) including the greasing of the pivot points of the machine. Students will maneuver the machine around the yard and learn how to use the controls. This portion of the course will focus on the proficiency needed in the use of the machine through repetitive motions.
The Basic Front End Loader course is a 1-day (7 hour) duration made up of the following classes:
- FS1 Front-End Loader Safety Awareness 1 hour Comprehensive
- FE1 Front-End Loader Maintenance & Basic Controls 3 hours Practical
- FE4 Front-End Loader Instruction 3 hours Practical
