Thorough Examinations

A ‘thorough examination’ is a type of safety inspection for forklifts comparable to the MOT tests carried out on cars. Ful-ton’s engineers are all completely qualified to conduct ‘thorough examinations’ on every type of lifting machine. The main functions of these examinations are: establishing that the truck is still safe to operate; checking the truck is lifting and moving in the appropriate manner; discover weakness or flaws that might prevent the truck being used properly; identify the time-frame for addressing any defects discovered and verifying that previously identified defects have been dealt with; checking the functioning of safety devices; and assessing the fixing and legibility of warning notices.

Forklift Driver Training

Get forklift driver training for every sort of mechanical handling equipment on your own premises – at very competitive prices! Operator training for forklifts by a certified instructor is a legal requirement. It is essential that the training covers the whole range of knowledge and skills for the relevant type of vehicle being operated, although the training’s length can depend on prior experience and the particular environment and tasks that will eventually be confronted by the operator. Our instructors have nationally recognised professional qualifications and are authorised to give competence-based training, assign and conduct practical skills tests and issue certificates of achievement.


Let Ful-ton provide the solution to your transport and haulage problems with our specially designed forklift Brimec transporter.  It has a maximum carrying capacity of 15 tonnes, and its dimensions are 5.05 metres long by 2.55 metres wide. The transporter’s maximum height is 3.5 metres on top of its bed.


Industrial vacuum and floor cleaning machines are a recent addition to the Ful-ton catatalogue.  Get in touch with us for further details about what we have in this line of products.

Spare Parts

Our longstanding experience in the forklift industry means that we’re able to cross-refer between the key components of most models. For example, we know that Lansing FRER parts are compatible with those from the old Hillman type. As a result, we can source them for our customers at remarkably low prices. Just tell us the type and serial number of your truck and we’ll give you a highly competitive quotation to supply spare parts for it. If the item you’re after is something that we don’t happen to have in stock at the moment, then we’ll generally be able to get it in for you the very next day.
