Telehandlers are big scale construction vehicles designed to lift heavy weights and materials. These are considered basically a forklift and crane hybrid in terms of its size and capabilities. The boom is the telehandler's most prominent feature. It can be equipped with a variety of attachments so as to enable it to complete other tasks.
An operator can be safe while doubling or even tripling a telehandler's maximum lifting weight by utilizing the right lifting angle and extension. It is essential to keep in mind that if the arm is accidentally used wrong, the equipment could tip over dangerously due to the lifting weight being drastically cut.
In its visual manner, the telehandler more resembles a crane, although it has traits of a crane and a forklift. The huge extending boom arm makes it more similar to a crane because it could reach up to high areas. Since it can easily lift heavy things or equipment, the telehandler also performs like a lift truck. What's more, the arm looks like the end of a forklift.
