Telescopic material handlers
Telehandlers are ideal for material handling on rough terrain and demanding outdoor areas. They are hybrid machines that combine the features of a forklift truck and a boom lift or crane on an all-terrain vehicle. Telehandlers are primarily lift and place machines, but they offer so much versatility on site due to their high working load limit and extendable reach. These versatile machines are suitable for many different industries, such as construction, agriculture, waste and recycling, and more. They can move materials around a workplace, lift heavy loads on and off trucks, relocate loads on site, clear waste areas, and more.
Telehandlers are so useful due to how adaptable they are. They can be used as a standard forklift, but as they also have telescopic booms, they offer excellent reach to areas with limited access, above obstructions, or at heights. Although the booms are usually equipped with a fork carriage as standard, they can be used with a range of different attachments, such as buckets or claws. While forklift prongs are ideal for carrying pallets, hay bales, concrete blocks, timber, pipework, and various packages, buckets can be used to handle rocks, rubble, earth, sand, water and waste. Telehandlers can also act as mini cranes. The boom can be attached to a jib, hook, or winch. Any of these attachments allow you to suspend loads or drop them into location.
Telehandlers are also known as telescopic handlers, telescopic forklifts, telehandler forklifts, boom lifts, lulls, and teleloaders. We have a fantastic range available, including machines with reaches of 4 metres, all the way up to 21 metres, and the incremental sizes in between.
