Telehandlers are machinery that are designed to work in rough terrain, however, that doesn't mean that they can be driven without any consideration for the terrain. These kinds of machines have a much greater risk of load loss or tipping over when they are traveling on slopes.

If you do need to travel on a slope, ensure that you proceed slowly and carefully while keeping the load low. Before getting on the slope, downshift to 4WD and a lower gear. Utilizing the engine brake will really help to control the speed of the telehandlers. Try to avoid turning on a slope if possible. If you must make the turn, utilize extreme care and take it as wide as possible.

Under any conditions, do not drive across extremely steep slopes. Ascend and descend slopes with the telehandler's heavy end pointing up the incline. Even when there is no cargo on the forks, the machine's counterweighted rear is fairly heavy; thus, it can be required to drive backwards up slopes. When the telehandler is carrying a load, the front of the unit becomes the heavy end, and you will be able to back the equipment down the slopes.

On a mixed jobsite, operator training is very important. The coordinated steering machinery, along with the rear-pivot machines normally work on the same jobsite where everyone is allowed to use all of the machinery. In this instance, a person who is used to using a coordinated steer machinery can jump onto a rear-pivot machinery. A very significant distinction between how these two units operate depends on what part of the equipment extends outside of the turning radius.
