What does a Telehandler do?
A telehandler, also known as a telescopic handler, is a machine used mainly in the agriculture and industrial sector. This machine consists of a boom that extends forwards and upwards from the vehicle cabin. Attachments including forks, buckets, and basket holdings can be fitted at the end of the boom to complete various applications.
What is the difference between a Forklift and a Telehandler?
Operating similar to a forklift, an equipped telehandler can also act as a crane. The major difference between the two machines is that the telehandler has the capabilities to operate at greater heights than a forklift can.
How much can a Telehandler lift?
Telehandlers have a lifting capacity of anywhere from 1200kg to 6000kg with a lift height of up to 56 ft. Equipped with different carrier forks, to buckets, and truss booms, telehandlers can be fitted with a wide range of attachments.
When looking for the right telehandler, the first thing to work out is what you’re going to be picking up and how high up you’re going to be lifting the material. To determine your maximum lifting capacity, choose the heaviest item that you would need to lift.
You will need to also determine where the materials are going to go. Are you going to be lifting it straight up, or lifting up and tipping over something. For these application requirements, review the machine’s load chart.
