The telescopic lift truck will normally have a prolonged lift which uses a crane or arm to come over top of a truck. This kind of forklift would enable you to raise cargo higher and with better control. This additional control is due to the fact that you are moving the load on the end of a crane, that is called a telescopic boom.
The load when placed on the forklift can move both towards and away from the forklift cab, which is a unique feature which a traditional lift truck is unable to accomplish. The telescopic forklifts can provide both versatility and height. The telescopic forklift is super popular in the construction and agricultural businesses. In addition, they are an excellent choice in situations where you must work with something which needs more control that a standard lift truck.
The frame tilt is a unique feature which is common to telehandlers. The operator can activate controls to change the lateral or side to side angle of the frame. This frame can be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a liquid filled tube that is curved and mounted within the cab. This is the level indicator or frame tilt indicator and works similar to a carpenter's level. It has a bubble indicator that indicates the lateral angle of the frame relative to the ground. This is a really handy device which is used to ensure the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough environments.
There are several units of telehandlers that provide rear wheel steering, similar to a vertical mast type unit. The majority of models provide 3 steering options which the operator may select; crab, circle and front steering. Like for instance, if the operator chooses the "front" steering option, just the front wheels of the machine will react to the movement of the steering wheel.
