When Do You Need Telehandlers?
When you need to lift a heavy load but don’t have the time (or maybe even the budget) to wait for a crane, then mobile telehandlers are a viable option. They are primarily used throughout the construction and warehouses industries move loads to places that regular forklifts can’t reach (typically with a pallet fork attachment), and in agricultural industries to move loads to places where backhoes and front wheel loaders can’t reach (sometimes using a grapple attachment). In forestry operations, a telehandler can be used to assess the health of trees and prune them (using a platform attachment).
Different Types of Telehandler Attachments
Aside from pallet forks and grapple attachments, telehandlers also benefit from:
- Dirt Buckets – With a bucket attachment, your telehandler can dig like a backhoe and has even better reach.
- Grain Buckets – Allows you to load grain trucks with ease.
- Work Platforms – With this attachment, your telehandler transforms into a cherry picker for lifting work crews.
- Lifting Jibs – If you can’t lift a load using forks, then a jib lets you lift like a crane.
- Snow Plows – Used to clear snow.
