Does a Front End Loader with Fork attachment require a Hoisting License? Yes! The operator of a Front End Loader is required to hold a 2C restriction, at minimum. BUT…if the Bucket is removed and replaced with a Fork attachment, the operator of this modified machinery is required to hold a 1C restriction. A 1C restriction is required to operate equipment with hydraulic telescoping booms without wire ropes and Fork Lifts.
And Good News: Pallet Jacks do NOT require a license!
