Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

Telescopic handlers are somewhat similar to forklifts. It has a single telescopic boom which extends both forwards and upwards from the truck, and a counterweight situated in the back. It functions a lot more like a crane than a forklift. The boom can be equipped with a variety of attachments. The most popular attachment is pallet forks, but the operator can also attach a muck grab, lift table or bucket. Also referred to as a telehandler, this particular kind of machinery is usually used in industry and agriculture.

A telehandler is often used to move loads to and from places which would be hard for a standard forklift to access. Telehandlers are frequently used to unload pallets from within a trailer. They are also more handy compared to a crane for carrying loads onto rooftops and other high places.

There is just one major limitation in utilizing telehandlers. Despite rear counterweights, the weight-bearing boom can cause the vehicle to destabilize while it extends. Therefore, the lifting capacity lessens when the distance between the center of the load and the front of the wheels increases.

Telehandlers were developed within England by the Matbro company. Their design was based on articulated cross country forklifts utilized in forestry. Early models had a centrally mounted boom on the front and a driver's cab on the rear section, but these days the design which is most popular has a strong chassis with a side cab and rear mounted boom.
