The revolutionary telehandler, also known as a telescopic handler or boom lift, is vital equipment for a wide range of industries and applications. Telehandlers are machines that combine the lifting power of a hydraulic forklift with the reach and elevation of a crane to create an equipment that is extremely versatile and efficient. The telescopic, articulating single boom design stretches forward and upwards for maximum lift heights of over 50 feet, with a rated load capacity of up to 12,000 pounds thanks to powerful hydraulics. When you combine buckets and jibs with work tool attachments like pallet forks and aerial work platforms, you can perform various tasks with a single machine.
Consider just a few of the many uses of a telehandler if you’re seeking for equipment that can enhance productivity while improving safety and efficiency:
- Handling of Materials: Telehandlers are commonly used to transport heavy loads from one location to another. The tiny frame and outstanding mobility allow it to go into tight spaces that giant forklifts can’t. Telehandlers are employed on farms, warehouses, distribution facilities, and a wide range of other construction sites. Telehandlers are a quick and efficient way to pick up pallets from within a barn or storage shed, as well as an easier way to transport cargo onto flatbed vehicles or a rooftop.
- Elevated Locations: Businesses may safely deploy employees far above the ground thanks to the telescopic reach of a telehandler boom. It’s also a less time-consuming method of delivering tools and materials to higher elevations. The average boom-mounted work platform can hold 500 to 1,000 pounds or more. Telehandlers are great for building sites since they allow you to reach out and over barriers, and they’re also popular in repair and maintenance. Telehandlers put your personnel in the best position indoors or out, from maintaining utilities and changing light fixtures to painting and cleaning walls and ceilings.
- Snow Removal: One of the many applications for a telehandler during the winter months. You can clear snow, ice, and debris with the right work gear to keep productivity moving and provide a safer working environment. Attachments such as a snow bucket, push, and plow are available.
- Sanitation and Recycling: Telehandlers have a lot of benefits when it comes to waste removal. Buckets for carrying, blades for pushing, grapples for grabbing, and hooks for towing can all be added to the machines. Telehandlers are fuel-efficient and easy to use, resulting in lower running expenses and less training.
