So, what is a Telescopic Handler?
We have a range of used telescopic handlers for sale at Fenton Plant Machinery. So what is one and what are its uses. A telescopic handler is a multipurpose lifting machine which features a single telescopic or articulating boom that extends upwards and outwards. Telescopic handlers are often called telehandlers, teleporters or boom lifts. Various attachments, such as a lifting jib or work platform can be fitted to the end of the boom, making this piece of machinery very versatile. Telescopic handlers function in a similar way to a forklift and a crane, but often on a smaller scale. JCB is widely regarded as the most popular manufacturer of telehandlers and Fenton Plant Machinery generally stock this brand.
What industries are they used in?
Telescopic handlers can be used on all terrains, making them extremely useful on construction sites or farms, where the ground is often rough. They also have extendable stabilisers, meaning they can be safely used on uneven terrain. They are used in a range of industries but are most frequently used in the construction sector, the agricultural sector and the industrial sector.
In the construction sector, telescopic handlers are used for a wide range of jobs. They are often used with the working platform to give construction workers access to a specific area. There are also used to lift construction materials such as concrete blocks.
Telescopic handlers are frequently used within the agriculture industry because they can easily be manoeuvred around large farms and can be used for a number of farming tasks, both outdoors and indoors. Telescopic handlers can manoeuvre within small spaces, meaning they can be used inside a barn and can travel up and down livestock rows with ease. They are great for moving hay bales and handling heavy bucketloads.
In the industrial sector, telescopic handlers are most frequently used to quickly and easily shift cargo and heavy goods from one place to another.
