For this early exercise a cone or tin of suitable diameter should be used. Because pallet trucks steer in a similar manner to reach trucks, even a small tin will suffice although much lower diameter than 30 cm the exercise starts to become impracticable.
The trainee(s) should be instructed to steer close to the drum and without touching it. They should do this first to the left and then to the right.
These exercises should be carried out in a steady, controlled manner.Disclaimer.
