Four wheel drive training in a field

Four-Wheel Drive Training

Four-wheel drive vehicles are common throughout many industries due to their power and versatility. Due to this popularity however, they are over-represented in terms of incident statistics. Workers spend countless hours in these vehicles every year, but few truly understand their full capabilities and limitations. Many workers that come from an urban setting have likely never had the chance to operate a four-wheel drive vehicle. Alternatively, those that have extensive experience with them may have developed bad habits or still have gaps in their knowledge. That’s why Leavitt Machinery offers an online four-wheel drive course to educate operators on their vehicles.
