PARTS & POWER LTD CONDUCTS JCB TELETRUK TRAINING ON TORTOLA
On 7, 14 & 21 September, Parts & Power Ltd, of Tortola British Virgin Islands, conducted JCB Teletruk (TLT) training for JCB TLT owners in the BVI. The first day of training was on Forklift Basics, Operation and Safety.
On the 14th, Trainer and Technical Director, Dan Durbin instructed on the JCB TLT specifically. He explained the concept of the machine, how to operate and maintain the machine from an Operator’s perspective. This included both classroom and hands on training. The cab was tilted forward (a major JCB TLT beneficial feature) so the engine, hydraulics and electrical systems were exposed and easily examined and serviced.
The last day of training included, not only Dan, but Parts Manager Tony Tuckett and Service Manager Andrew Ball. They demonstrated the uses, advantages, features and benefits of the JCB TLT. The TLT owned by Road Town Wholesale, which has an extra lift attachment on it, was brought over to demonstrate the custom modifications that were made in order to make the TLT fit the specific needs of the customer. The ability to quickly (less than 60 seconds) change attachments on the JCB were also demonstrated.
The class ended with a photo of the class inside the Remotely Operated Man Basket on the JCB 540-170 Loadall above 2 JCB Teletruks. The feedback from the Operators was overwhelmingly positive.
