The telehandler is a construction vehicle that is engineered to lift heavy weights and supplies. It is basically considered to be a hybrid of the forklift and the crane when it comes to its size and capabilities. The boom is the telehandler's most important feature. It could be equipped with a variety of attachments so as to enable it to perform other tasks.
By utilizing the correct lifting angle and extension an operator could be safe while doubling or even tripling a telehandler's maximum lifting weight. It is very essential to remember that if the arm is incorrectly used by accident, the equipment could dangerously tip over because of the lifting weight being drastically cut.
In its visual manner, the telehandler more resembles a crane, though it has traits of a crane and a forklift. The big extending boom arm makes it more similar to a crane as it could reach up to high areas. Because it could easily lift heavy things or equipment, the telehandler also performs like a forklift. In addition, the arm looks similar to the end of a lift truck.
