Hydraulic truck crane

HDS, or hydraulic truck crane, is a type of crane that is mounted on trucks. The main purpose of using this type of crane is to carry out independent loading and unloading without any additional equipment. The cranes are capable of lifting weights of several tonnes. Often, the operation of a hydraulic truck crane is also referred to as operating a mobile or handling crane. In order to operate this type of device, a HDS course is required. Then, before starting work as an HDS operator, the work authorization must be granted by a commission of the Office of Technical Inspection. For this purpose the trainee takes a state examination.

Each HDS training in our Centre includes a range of theoretical information on crane servicing and maintenance, as well as the principles of Health and Safety at Work. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • technical supervision
  • basic information operation of the device
  • construction of the equipment and subdivision of the different types of cranes
  • responsibilities of the equipment operator
  • Health and safety of the crane operator
  • practical classes on cranes

Trainees are provided with the necessary learning materials, including issues that appear during the examination by the Technical Inspection Commission. Our main goal is effective training, therefore we use special syllabuses. Thanks to them, most of our trainees pass the exam already on the first try and obtain the necessary licences. The licence granted by UDT in category II Ż is a licence valid indefinitely.

The following conditions must be met in order to receive training:

  • at least 18 years old
  • at least a basic education
  • medical certificate with no contraindications to work as a hydraulic truck crane operator
