Telehandlers are equipments which are meant to operate in rough terrain, however, that doesn't mean that they could be driven without any consideration for the environment. These machines have a much bigger risk of tipping over or load loss when they are traveling on slopes.
If you do have to travel on a slope, ensure that you proceed carefully and slowly while keeping the load low. Before getting on the slope, downshift to 4WD and a lower gear. Using the engine brake will really help to control the speed of the telehandlers. Try not to turn on a slope if possible. If you have to make the turn, utilize extreme care and take it as wide as possible.
Always try not to drive across extremely steep slopes. Utilize the heavy end of the telehandler pointing up the incline, when ascending and descending slopes. Even when the forks have no cargo, the counterweighted rear of the machinery is fairly heavy; therefore, it could be required to drive in reverse up slopes. When the telehandler is carrying a cargo, the front of the unit becomes the heavy end, and you can back the equipment down the slopes.
Operator training is extremely important on a mixed jobsite. Rear pivot equipment will usually operate on the same jobsite of coordinated steering machinery, where everyone is permitted to operate all of the machinery. In this case, a person who is used to using a coordinated steer equipment can jump onto a rear-pivot machinery. A very significant difference between how these two units work depends on what part of the equipment extends outside of the turning radius.
