Telescopic handlers, also known as telehandlers, are a very popular type of access equipment and have many benefits to offer any construction project. They are extremely versatile and act as a work platform as well as a means of lifting and moving loads.
If you are interested in telehandlers, and perhaps looking to rent one in the near future, you should be aware of the different types of telehandlers, which include the following:
Standard Fixed Boom Telehandlers
A standard fixed boom telehandler is made up of a fixed cab that is attached to a standard telescopic boom. While the cab can’t rotate, it is very stable and durable, and makes them a great choice for heavy loads. Many entry level telehandlers fall into this category.
Rotating telehandlers are definitely looked to as the most cutting-edge and modern telehandlers that are currently available. These telehandlers are manufactured using revolutionary technology and have certainly provided the construction industry with a whole new, more effective way of carrying out certain processes. What makes them so special? These telehandlers have cabs that can rotate as far as 360 degrees, offering maximum versatility and reliability. It is no wonder that these telehandlers are a very popular choice across a range of different industries.
Heavy Lift Telehandlers
If you are looking for a telehandler with extra lifting power, then a heavy lift telehandler could be the right choice for you. These types of access equipment allow you to move and lift heavier-than-normal loads. They also allow you to get into those hard-to-reach places. Heavy lift telehandlers are very popular in industries such as mining and construction. It is always very important that you never overload your telehandler and abide by manufacturer guidelines when it comes to maximum loads.
