News & Events
With a range of abilities and functions, the telehandler (also known as a telescopic handler, reach forklift, teleporter or telescopic forklift) is extremely useful in various industries such as construction, agriculture / farming and waste / recycling. With a telescopic boom, the telehandler can lift loads, extend or retract its maximum reach / lift height or suspend / shift heavy loads from difficult to reach areas
Primarily, telehandlers are used to lift and move large or heavy loads from one area to another. If the load is being moved a short distance, then the telehandler can complete the task by extending and retracting its telescopic arm, without needing to move / drive.
Operating a telehandler poses safety hazards and it is important to only operate it after receiving the proper training
