The telehandler is a construction vehicle that is designed to lift heavy weights and materials. It is basically considered to be a hybrid of the forklift and the crane in terms of its size and capabilities. The boom is the most important feature on a telehandler. It can be equipped with different kinds of attachments in order to enable it to complete other tasks.
An operator could remain safe whilst doubling or even tripling a telehandler's maximum lifting weight by using the right lifting angle and extension. It is vital to remember that if the arm is accidentally utilized wrong, the machinery could tip over dangerously because of the lifting weight being drastically cut.
In its visual manner, the telehandler more resembles a crane, although it has features of a crane and a forklift. The large extending boom arm makes it more similar to a crane as it is able to reach up to high places. As it is able to easily raise equipment or heavy items, the telehandler also resembles a lift truck. Additionally, the arm looks similar to the end of a forklift.
