So what is a Telehandler?
A telescopic handler is a machine widely used in agriculture and construction. It is somewhat like a forklift but has a boom (Telescopic cylinder), making it more a crane than a forklift, with the increased versatility of a single telescopic or articulating boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or winch. JCB is widely regarded as the most popular manufacturer of telehandlers and Fenton Plant Machinery generally stock this brand.
What are the common uses for Telehandlers?
In industry the most common attachment for a telehandler is pallet forks and the most common application is to move loads to and from places unreachable for a conventional forklift. For example, telehandlers have the ability to remove palletised cargo from within a trailer and to place loads on rooftops and other high places. This would otherwise require a crane, which is not always practical or time-efficient.
In agriculture the most common attachment for a telehandler is a bucket or grab, again the most common application is to move loads to and from places unreachable for a ‘conventional machine’ which in this case is a wheeled loader or backhoe loader. For example, telehandlers have the ability to reach directly into a high-sided trailer or hopper. This would otherwise require a loading ramp, conveyor, or similar.
The telehandler can also work with a crane jib along with lifting loads, the attachments that include on the market are dirt buckets, grain buckets, rotators, power booms. The agricultural range can also be fitted with three point linkage and power take-off.
