Telehandlers are also called reach forklifts. They are popular within both agriculture and construction for transporting and lifting heavy stuff. The telehandler is an aerial lift vehicle which is similar in appearance to a traditional forklift but functions like a crane. The telehandler has advantages over the crane when it comes to versatility. The telehandler has a single telescopic boom which extends both forward and upward from the truck.
Many forklift maintenance and repair services offer service on weekends or during off hours to be able to reduce downtime caused by out-of-service equipment. Repair centers normally provide forklift rentals until machine can be fixed. Maintenance is required for electrically powered vehicles which occasionally need repair to fuel cells or batteries.
Maintenance contracts include the provision of regular services like monitoring, inspections, oil changes, lubrication and routine adjustments. Contracts can vary depending on the company's specific needs. A regular contract could consist of everything from the cost of spare parts to preventive maintenance. A complete service contract will include a monthly payment for a particular time period. Damages resulting from accidents are not normally included in maintenance contracts.
