Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

Telehandlers in the past ten years, is also referred to as variable reach rough terrain lift truck, has gained great fame in the material handling business. With excellent reason, these specific equipment have become the gem of the construction industry. These kinds of equipment are useful, versatile and very strong. Since several manufacturers and units has exploded during the last 5 years or so, there are presently a few of these machines readily available on the market.

The Telehandler is considered a Class 7 Powered Industrial Truck. Just in name, this description means it is a rough terrain forklift. Any of the similarities between a vertical mast type of forklift and a telehandler literally ends on operation and on sight. There are several other major differences between the two machines discussed below.

As apposed to a vertical mast, a telehandler has a completely different look since it is made with a horizontal boom. A telehandler with a jib attachment from a distance can look more like a crane than a forklift. The boom can retract and extend or telescope as long as 30 feet and beyond depending on the particular model. The boom is also able to elevate to an angle from horizontal to around 70 degrees. Telehandlers have earned the nickname of "zoom booms" because of their ability to telescope. This name has become rather famous with the operators.

"Transaction" is another optional boom related function. Telehandlers that are outfitted with this alternative have a boom which is mounted on the chassis in such a way that when the operator starts it, the whole boom to travel back and forward, specifically for distances up to eight feet or so. Among the main benefits of this function is that it allows the forks to be withdrawn from a cargo with no snags or cleanly and the forks can be cleanly inserted under, regardless of the boom angle.

The construction industry have been revolutionized by zoom booms. They are able to perform many jobs that used to take much more man-power and time to do.
