That is one mammoth tele handler! Or is it a MEWP cherry picker? 153 Comments stephen holloway on 6 July 2012 at 3:31 PM I have a red card telehandler ticket but would like to know how much it would cost to learn how to use a 360 telehandler please. can you email me please thankyou. Siôn Jones on 6 July 2012 at 5:32 PM thanks for the enquiry, i have sent you an email. Stephen O'Keeffe on 4 September 2012 at 2:22 PM Merlo Roto 40.30 MCSS is the biggest For lift height band the Merlo Roto 60.24 MCSS is biggest lift capacity You have any photos of the Roto in picture. Sure not a Roto 40.25 MCSS as no 26m are in UK IPAF would come into effect while the basket , that a 300kg basket while on unit and controlled from basket. Ref PM28 Tel: 01425-460214/213 Siôn Jones on 4 September 2012 at 6:11 PM Thanks for your comments Stephen. I’ve emailed you some pictures of our 26m (40.26MCSS) just to prove that they do exist in the UK. Please don’t forget that CPCS also offer the Mobile Elevated Work Platform (Boom) category – covering workers whilst in the basket attachment. All the best, julian kieswetter on 13 September 2012 at 7:17 AM Hi I have blue cpcs card for a17 telehandler coulld I do a one day course to gain the 360 slew I have used the manitou a while back a training company in hull says that I can if so could you give me a price too Thanks Julian Siôn Jones on 15 September 2012 at 3:38 PM If you have previously completed the CPCS Telescopic Handler (A17C) Technical test and NVQ. You will only need to complete the A17D practical test only on the 360 slew telehandler. This should then go straight onto your Blue card. I have sent you some information via email. Thanks, john on 7 October 2012 at 4:57 PM hello I HAVE A CPCS A17 SIZESexc360 BLUE CARD how much does it cost to gain 360 slew. with thanks JOHN Siôn Jones on 8 October 2012 at 3:11 PM Hi John, thanks for the enquiry. Provided you already have the NVQ unit for the telehandler (VR387 or QCF387) then you should only need to sit the CPCS practical assessment on the rotary telehandler to gain the ‘All sizes – including 360’ endorsement! I’ll send you an email with some more detail. Regards, robert on 20 October 2012 at 3:50 AM hi i have blue all sizes including 360 but need refreshing on the 360 how much and how long will it be.

Thanks, Lakhvir Singh Siôn Jones on 22 October 2012 at 9:24 AM Hi Lakhvir, I’m hoping to run a course at the end of this week. You’ll only need the practical element of the test and also an up to date CSCS (HS&E) test, but if you can email me your CPCS number i’ll double check for you. An email has been sent with some more information. Thanks, Siôn Jones on 23 October 2012 at 6:09 PM Hi Rob, If you require some 360 telehandler familiarisation, we can arrange something for this Friday if you like? We can take it from there.

I was wondering how much it would cost for 360 Slew Telehandler and what is the duration of the course ? Siôn Jones on 30 October 2012 at 8:58 AM Hi Garry, Good to talk with you earlier. You are now booked for the next course. Look forward to meeting in person. Regards, Siôn Jones on 30 October 2012 at 1:40 PM Colin, I’ve sent you an email with costs and dates for completing the practical test on the rotary telehandler. Hope to hear from you soon. Regards, Paul Harnwell on 13 November 2012 at 3:44 PM I’m a cpcs operator, I have Telehandler all sizes But I want to get a 360 Telehandler, how much would It cost me?and where would I get the relevant training ? I’m based in Essex, could you steer me in the Right direction?thanks Paul. Siôn Jones on 17 November 2012 at 12:43 PM Hi Paul, Thanks for getting in touch this week. First thing, get your HS&E test (for operatives) completed somewhere closer to you and then I can book you for your practical test on the 360 slew tele handler. Despite having an abundance of experience on telehandlers – I would recommend a minimum of a days training to familiarise yourself with the controls and procedures involved with the operation of a 360 tele. As you already have a blue card on category A17C – there is no theory test involved. There are plenty of B&B’s local to me that you may wish to take advantage of, some of which I’ve noted on my website. I’ve sent you an email with further detail. Thanks again, Rich Gorman on 13 December 2012 at 8:16 PM Hi, could you send me some information on a17d courses and the cost please. I have a17 c at the moment and some experience on a roto. Siôn Jones on 16 December 2012 at 8:30 AM Rich, thanks for the enquiry. I have sent you some info and dates for courses in early January. Thanks, henry shazell on 20 January 2013 at 11:55 AM Hi Can you please advise your best price for training and CPCS standard testing to add 360 Roto telehandler to my blue CPCS card and when you run these courses? I look forward to hearing from you. Siôn Jones on 22 January 2013 at 4:24 PM Hi Henry, Thanks for the enquiry. Do you have the standard telehandler on your blue card? What is your registration number? I have a few courses lined up, I’ll send you some details. Regards, Vitaliy on 4 February 2013 at 12:56 PM Hi I have A17 blue card and want get 360 slew how much course and when it run.Thanks Siôn Jones on 5 February 2013 at 6:56 AM Thanks, I’ve sent some info on the next course. paul on 8 February 2013 at 12:47 PM hi henry i ihave a cpcs telehandler blue card,which has expire a few years was wondering what was the procedure to get it back, was told would just need a day refresher?is this correct, also could you send some info on ,all sizes with 360 slew, cost etc…. cheers paul. Siôn Jones on 12 February 2013 at 11:19 AM Hi Paul, Thanks for the enquiry. If your blue card has expired for over 12months, then you’ll need to complete the CPCS theory test. You’ll also need to prove you have a minimum of 300 hours operating experience recorded in your logbook and get it signed by a validator. If you can’t prove the hours or have lost your logbook, then you’ll need to complete a CPCS practical test or On Site Assessment (OSA) with me. An OSA can be carried out at your place of work if you have access to plant or you could come to me. I would do this soon, I’ve heard that CPCS are bringing in an additional test this year for blue card renewals. I don’t know much more at present but the will be an update in March/April to let us know what’s involved. However, if you are looking to add the rotary telehandler category (A17D) to your card, then It might be worth you just completing a CPCS technical test (theory & practical) on this machine instead of renewing your blue card – as you should automatically get a blue card upon achievement! I’ve sent you some more info via email. Thanks, sid tamm on 15 February 2013 at 10:53 AM Hi,im just enquiring about the cost of a familiarisation on 360 slew telehandler.i already hold blue ard all sizes inc 360 slew.i havent operated the latest models . cpcs no ava ilable Thanks sid Siôn Jones on 19 February 2013 at 1:24 PM Thanks for getting in touch Sid. When I’m next running a rotary telehandler course, I’ll happily fit you in for some familiarisation training. Alternately, I could always come out on site if you have access to one. I’ve emailed you some additional info. All the best. All the best. Herbert on 24 February 2013 at 6:34 PM Prices for practical a17d Roto add on to blue cpcs all sizes Robert nelson on 27 February 2013 at 3:03 PM Hi I’ve been driving telescopic forklifts for over 10 years all sizes exc 360 slew but would like to no how much it would cost me and where to go to get the 360 slew added to my card thank you Rodney Dean Turner on 11 March 2013 at 1:17 PM i have my blue card telehandler all sizes, nvq how much would it cost to gain my 360 slew Rodney Turner on 11 March 2013 at 1:25 PM Could you tell me is it true that if your blue telehandler card is still valid , and you do your touch screen again , when you renew your card that you have to do an extra test or is this extra test just for people who have let their card expire Siôn Jones on 13 March 2013 at 5:23 AM Thanks for the enquiry this week. Provided you already hold the CPCS A17C – telescopic handler (all sizes excluding 360 slew) endorsement on your blue card. You will need only complete the practical assessment on the 360 slew telehandler (A17D). Regarding the CSCS health and safety test, this will have needed to have been completed within the last two years – prior to me booking any CPCS test. If you send me your CPCS registration number I can always check up you. I have emailed you some costs and booking instructions. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks, M.jalo on 22 March 2013 at 10:51 AM Hi, jones! I have A17C Cpcs blue all sizes Exc. 360 slew, and A59A Excavator 360 below & above 10 tonnes tracked, Card, can i do a one day curse to gain the 360 slew i have used while back in cambridge & london, can you email me the price please and what need to to add the rotor to my ticket thanks, M.jalo. Siôn Jones on 25 March 2013 at 7:27 AM Hi M.Jalo, If you have the (A17C) telescopic handler – excluding 360 slew on your CPCS card. Then you’ll need to do the (A17D) CPCS practical test for the roto-handler to upgrade – this will then go straight to blue. It is an independent category from the the excavator 360, although i’m sure with your experience – you’ll find the test pretty straight forward. You can do a one day assessment if you wish, you’ll be given sufficient time to familiarise with the machine prior to your test. I’ve sent you an email. Thanks, Siôn Jones on 25 March 2013 at 7:41 AM Hi Rodney, Your CPCS (tele handler) card doubles up as a CSCS (health and safety) card. Therefore your CSCS is valid for as long as your CPCS card is. Personally I would only be looking to sit the health and safety test if your card was about to expire or you were looking to add more categories to your licence. Hope that helps. Thanks mick on 27 March 2013 at 8:07 AM hi there, I am keen to become a tele handler driver I have my cscs card and was wondering what the next step would be doug thornton on 28 March 2013 at 1:31 PM hi Sion. yet another person inquiring about A17 cat d info! iam just renewing my ticket and health and safety tests again and am intrested in the procedure, costings availability of courses etc for the upgrade to cat d from cat c. hoping it gives another string to the bow or should that be slew lol. yea ok crap funny!! many thanks in advance for your help. your faithfully doug thornton. Nicholas Brown on 2 April 2013 at 7:39 PM Hi buddy I have the rtitb and cscs card for the telehandler buckets etc looking to do the a17d wit cpcs can this be converted ??? Regards Siôn Jones on 3 April 2013 at 8:54 AM Hi Mick, Now that you’ve completed the health and safety test. All that is left to do, is register onto a telehandler course and sit the CPCS technical test. The next course will be in early May, please let me know if you are interested in reserving a place? I have a few offers available at the minute, so i’ve sent you an additional email. Thanks, Siôn Jones on 3 April 2013 at 11:30 AM Hi Doug, Another slew to your bow is good, but i think there’s boom(!) for improvement. This is usually a single day course for people who already have the blue card on the telehandler. The day will be split, with the morning is dedicated to some familiarisation on the machine and attachments, followed by the CPCS test in the afternoon. I’m looking to get one in ASAP! How soon do you need it? I’ve sent you an email with some additional info. Thanks, Siôn Jones Siôn Jones on 4 April 2013 at 7:42 PM Hi Nick, Unfortunately, cards can’t be converted from RTITB to CPCS or vice versa. You’ll have to start from scratch by completing the CPCS technical test (theory and practical) and HS&E (health, safety and environmental test. As far as i’m aware the only cards that can be converted to CPCS are MPQC (the old EPIC cards), the CPCS website states that; ‘CPCS has an agreement with the Materials Products Qualification Council (MPQC) that allows the holders of MPQC Cards to transfer certain categories onto a CPCS Trained Operator Card if they meet agreed requirements’. Please let me know if i can be of further assistance. Thanks, jason Rhodes on 7 May 2013 at 9:01 AM I have an operative with a 360 telescopic handler up to 5 ton certificate. He was stopped working on it because he’s ticket does not state fixed boom or what catergorie A.B.C.D. Is this correct Siôn Jones on 7 May 2013 at 4:59 PM Hi Jason, Thanks for getting in touch earlier. I hope I was of some help. To reiterate; If the certificate only states ‘360 slew up to 5 tonnes’, it’s not a card scheme i have come across. However, not all card schemes follow the CPCS A.B.C.D principle. By CPCS the A17D is an all encompassing category, the card itself states ‘all sizes telescopic handler – including 360 slew’. As most telehandlers are classified by the manufacturers according to their maximum height, the machines maximum (rated) capacity and whether it is rotary (360 slew) or a fixed boom type. A card scheme should therefore follow a similar principle. With further regards to ‘up to 5 tonnes’, I would presume this means the machines rated capacity. However, there are very few telehandlers I have come across that lift over 5tonnes (with the exception of heavy lift/ high capacity Merlos) and certainly not 360 slew telehandlers – this could be dangerous because of their significantly higher lifting heights! For that reason, it seems like a very strange classification. Like yourself I would investigate it further. Thanks, Ionut Branisteanu on 13 May 2013 at 9:30 PM hello I HAVE A CPCS A17 SIZESexc360 trained operator,how much does it cost to gain 360 slew, and do we need just practical test<sent some information Regards Siôn Jones on 16 May 2013 at 4:59 PM Thanks for getting in touch, i’ve sent you an email. mark dobie on 19 June 2013 at 9:20 PM hi i have a blue card fore all sizes on telehandler iam interested in 360 telehandler could you send me info with how long it would take fore test and cost IPAF Training on 25 June 2013 at 4:30 PM Hi, hope you are fine. Good to see this post on your blog. Actually am thinking to take IPAF training. So yet have no idea just reading these types of post to educate my self before apply. Siôn Jones on 25 June 2013 at 9:31 PM Hi Mark, If you have the telehandler (all sizes excluding 360 slew) on your blue card, then i’d recommend a minimum of a days familiarisation on the machine prior to completing the CPCS A17D test. The actual CPCS test on the roto-handler is very similar to a standard telescopic handler test, so an experienced operator such as yourself should pick it up quickly. I have sent you some details via email. Thanks, Val on 4 July 2013 at 6:58 PM hello I HAVE A CPCS A17 SIZESexc360 BLUE CARD how much does it cost to gain 360 slew. with thanks Val Siôn Jones on 7 July 2013 at 10:44 AM Hi Val, Thanks for the enquiry, I have just sent you an email.

Also, regarding the loading shovel what’s your level of experience? I’ve sent you an email. paul meachen on 28 August 2013 at 8:44 PM Hi i am telescopc forklift driver with over 10 years experiance i also hold 360 excavator ticket both are blue cpcs but i want to up grade my telehandler to include 17d 360 slew how much would this cost please thanks paul Ricardo tulloch on 30 August 2013 at 11:11 AM Hi. Would like to kno the price of the 360 slew telehandler. I already have my cpcs for all sizes(telescopic handler) Siôn Jones on 2 September 2013 at 4:23 PM Hi Ricardo, Thanks for your enquiry. Provided you already hold the CPCS A17C – telescopic handler (all sizes excluding 360 slew) endorsement on your red/blue card. You will be required to complete any necessary training to bring you up to speed with the machine and then the CPCS A17D practical assessment on the 360 slew telehandler to upgrade your card (no theory test required). Your CITB health, safety and environmental test will also need to have been completed within the last two years. If you send me your CPCS registration number I can always check on this for you. I have sent you some additional info via email. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks, Joshua Richardson on 12 September 2013 at 4:02 PM I would like to know how much will cost me to do 360 telehandler ? I am looking to do and loading shovel as well steve griffiths on 14 September 2013 at 6:46 PM how much will it cost for me to do a 360 telehandler course as i have 13 years telehandler experience cpcs 0******* blue card with level 2 nvq Siôn Jones on 21 September 2013 at 2:40 PM Josh, Thanks for getting in touch. Could you please give some more information relating to your experience on telehandlers? Do you already hold a card for the fixed boom telehandler? If so, is it CPCS ( i.e. A17C)? If you have no previous experience on telehandlers i would recommend doing the standard telehandler course first, the 360 telehandler is different animal altogether, so some previous telehandler experience would be advantageous. Same question with the shovel, have you any previous experience? I’ll get back to you some prices. Look forward to hearing from you. Siôn Jones on 22 September 2013 at 6:33 PM Steve, thanks for getting in touch. I’ve sent you an email with some info.

Is this the right ticket to be covered to use the Winch attachment on a 360 slew telescopic forklift. Is this a rare Qualification? Siôn Jones on 30 June 2017 at 2:42 PM Andy, The 360 telehandler (A17D) and suspended loads (A17E) categories are a good combination for sure. Holding both would probably stand you in good stead for the future as both categories are increasing in popularity. There is no specific winch attachment under CPCS, although we could offer you some additional training on this if you wanted? Let us know if you’d like a quote for this? Thanks again, Team ACOP Krzysztof on 8 August 2017 at 9:33 AM hello I HAVE A CPCS A17 SIZESexc360 BLUE CARD how much does it cost to gain 360 slew. with thanks Kriss Siôn Jones on 9 August 2017 at 6:24 AM Kriss, Thanks for getting in touch. With experienced telehandler operators we can offer a day’s course, which will involve training on a Merlo 360 ROTO in the morning and CPCS practical test in the afternoon. There is no theory test requirement for existing A17C cardholders. The other option for experienced operators is a 2 day course, and this will include some training on the winch attachment. The first option is normally the most popular for experienced operators and you’ll find that that the CPCS A17D test is pretty much identical to the standard telehandler test. However, I also offer the two day course, where you can gain a little time on the winch attachment working with a slinger which is good practice. We also offer the new suspended load (A17E) test. Let me know if you have any further questions? Thanks again, Team ACOP adam on 26 August 2017 at 1:17 PM I’m looking to book the 2 day course’ I’m from lpool north west, can u point me in right direction and how much inc vat’ thankyou Siôn Jones on 30 August 2017 at 3:55 PM Hi Adam, I have sent you an email regarding the CPCS 360 telehandler (A17D) course options. Thanks, Team ACOP HM on 7 September 2017 at 8:43 PM Can I have some information for the A17D and E please. I have a blue card A17C. Thank you. Siôn Jones on 11 September 2017 at 6:55 AM Hi, I’ve sent you some information on the CPCS A17D & E technical tests. Thanks, Team ACOP Tony on 16 October 2017 at 1:08 AM Hi Sion could you also send me details on CPCS A17D and AI7E please. I’ve already got A17C with NVQ. I’ve been using numerous telehandlers on the railways for years but so far suspended loads and lifting attachments haven’t been enforced but that might all change soon.
