Alberta Picker Truck Training

There comes a time when handing the keys of a $150,000 and up oilfield service truck has to send shivers down the spine of owner who had to hire based on availability.

We don’t just ask you to bring a 4′ level to the training, what for?  There is NO way you can level any picker truck unless the ground is flat.  How many times I hear this makes it even more clear, there are those teaching this program who have no idea what they are doing.  When you have one set of outriggers, how do you expect to have a level vehicle?  it’s much like letting most of the air out of the driver side tires and expecting the truck to continue to drive in a straight line on the road, it’s just not going to happen.

I get there are companies trying to control costs, we do here as well, but as the end user keeps asking for lower prices the companies put “less experience” or “no experience” into the instructor position, and the customer is happy they got the lower price.  Our saying stands true from the beginning of time: “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweet victory of low price has been forgotten“.
