Similar to conventional lift trucks, the lifting attachment can be tilted from its horizontal position to backwards and forwards. The actual amount of tilt possible totally exceeds that of vertical mast lift trucks. There are various types of available lifting attachments, and this positioning ability makes them as effective as possible.
Nearly all telehandlers have the capability of tilting to a position which is actually parallel to the ground. Several models have rotating carriages as well. This allows the operator to radially adjust the lifting attachment. This translates to the load being capable of being tilted backwards and forwards, as well as side to side.
Telehandlers have a load capacity rather similar to that of the vertical mast unit. The model's overall capacity would be dependent on things like: the amount of boom transaction deployed, if this is applicable and boom angle and extension, whether the unit is lifting on rubber tires or on outriggers. Additionally, which lifting attachment plays an main role, as does the wind, the grade the equipment is operating on and so on. All of these specifics could be changing on a constant basis and this gives the operator much more information to take into consideration.
Normally, telehandlers have several load charts available in order for the operator to reference so they could determine the load capacity of a certain lift. Depending upon the configuration of the boom and the model in particular, the load capacity may vary by thousands of pounds all together.
