Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

Telehandlers in the last ten years, is also referred to as variable reach rough terrain forklift, has gained great fame within the material handling business. With excellent reason, these particular equipment have become the gem of the construction business. These machines are very powerful, practical and versatile. As several units and manufacturers has exploded during the past 5 years or so, there are now a number of these machinery readily available on the market.

In technical terms, a telehandler is considered to be an ITA* Class 7 Powered Industrial Truck. This description means it is a rough terrain forklift, but just in name only. Any of the similarities between a telehandler and a vertical mast type forklift literally ends on sight and on operation. There are some other significant distinctions between the two machines discussed below.

A telehandler has an entirely different look since it is equipped with a horizontal boom as opposed to a vertical mast. From a distance, a telehandler with a jib attachment can look more like a mobile crane rather than a lift truck. The boom could telescope or retract and extend as long as 30 feet and beyond which depends on the particular unit. The boom is also able to elevate to an angle from horizontal to about 70 degrees. Telehandlers have earned the nickname of "zoom booms" because of their ability to telescope. This name has become rather popular with the operators.

"Transaction" is a different optional boom related function. Telehandlers which are outfitted with this option have a boom that is mounted on the chassis in such a way that when the operator activates it, the entire boom to travel forward and back, specifically for distances up to eight feet or so. Among the main advantages of this function is that it allows the forks to be cleanly withdrawn from a cargo and the forks could be inserted underneath cleanly, regardless of the boom angle.

The construction business have been revolutionized by zoom booms. They are able to accomplish many tasks which used to take much more man-power and time to complete.
