Material Handling Equipment Part 1 : Telehandler
With the power to lift, scoop, remove and push, the versatility and power of a Telehandler gives it more capabilities than any other piece of equipment. The added bonus of telehandlers: it can complete a job in any season or weather.
A Compact and Maneuverable Machine
One of the biggest reasons why telehandlers are so versatile is because they are easy to maneuver and have a low cab. Even the engine position in the machine helped to streamline the equipment.
According to an article from For Construction Pros, telehandlers were first designed with the engine inline, like in a car. The engine acted as a natural counterweight so there was no need to fit the machine with extra steel to balance it out. Having the engine at the rear of the cab makes it easy to work on and maintain.
Telehandlers are fitted with rubber wheels that are fit for all types of terrain, both inside and outside. Unlike excavators which may need rubber track covers to operate on finished ground, telehandlers can easily transition from a finishing tool to a ground-breaking tool. Attachments like sweeper actually make them a great machine for cleaning up a project site and adding those finishing touches near the end of a project.
Reach Materials to New Heights
There is no shortage of ways to lift and move materials with a telehandler. With attachments such as dual forks, buckets, platforms and pallet forks, it’s possible to lift and move materials and people with a telehandler.
What makes material moving so easy with a telehandler is that they are powerful machines that are fairly easy to use. There’s a reason another name for them is “material handlers”. Their design provides the mobility of a skid steer with the reach of a boom lift. It’s no surprise that the telehandler is a powerful lifting machine.
One of the biggest appeals of a telehandler is that it can do the job of other machines, but with an extra lift.
Differences between Telehandlers and Forklift
The difference between a telehandler and a forklift, for example, is that a telehandler had the ability to also act like a crane. With an extendable boom arm, it can use forks to lift material up and out. A normal forklift is capped at a much lower height than a telehandler. Because the machine is much larger as well, its weight restrictions are much higher than a forklift, too.
