Title: Understanding the Characteristics of Telehandlers


1
Understanding the Characteristics of
Telehandlers If youve been looking to hire
telehandlers for your business lifting needs, it
can be a confusing exercise if you dont
understand what a telehandler is. There are
actually three main types of telehandler
available, they have different characteristics,
and this makes them useful in quite differing
applications. Getting the right one to suit your
current business needs is easier if you clearly
understand you lifting needs. Lets take a
closer look at the different telehandler types so
that you can make an informed hiring decision.
A Broad Overview When you look at telehandler
hire rates, it may seem that simply getting the
most expensive one should cover all your needs.
After all, if its the most expensive one, then
it stands to reason that it must be the best one
to suit your business. However, there are three
main types of telehandlers, and a cheaper one may
be more suitable depending on the type of
lifting that your business requires. The three
main types of telehandler are A Fixed Boom
Standard Telehandler This is a more basic model
that would be typically used in construction and
agriculture applications. A Rotating Telehandler
This is a more flexible lifting unit that is
revolutionising how many companies approach
construction. A Heavy Lifting Telehandler This
is used to provide greater flexibility and
efficiency in heavy lifting applications such as
mining. Understanding Telehandlers There are a
number of benefits to using a telehandler, and
they can be used in a variety of roles. A
telehandler is a piece of equipment that can act
like a forklift, but it
2
  • can have the strength and reach thats more like
    a crane. Below we will look at three of the
    primary telehandler features that make them such
    an attractive option.
  • 1. Lifting Heavy Loads
  • A rotating telehandler will rotate around the
    unit chassis to give the unit more flexibility
    when stationary. The telehandler can have a boom
    length of 6-46 metres, and it can lift loads of
    2.5-45 tonnes. This provides this equipment with
    a huge advantage over other lifting equipment in
    a wide variety of situations.
  • Highly Mobility and Flexibility
  • A telehandlers is a mobile lifting solution that
    can be transported easily, even to remote
    locations. They can navigate a wide variety of
    terrain, making them perfect for most types of
    working environments. There are three main
    steering modes available they are crab
    steering, front wheel drive, and four wheel
    drive. If you choose a four wheel drive
    telehandler unit, it can easily navigate uneven
    or rough terrain in areas, such as farms, mines
    and construction sites.
  • Improving Safety
  • A telehandler will replace a great deal of manual
    lifting to improve health and safety for the
    workers. However, the equipment should only be
    used by trained operators to maintain safety
    standards.
