What are telehandlers used for?

A telehandler is a versatile lifting machine that is commonly used in the construction industry to pick and carry materials. ‘Telehandler’ is a shortened version of ‘telescopic handler’ that can be fitted with various attachments.

The most common attachment is a pallet fork that enables a telehandler to reach beyond traditional forklifts. This allows the telehandler to lift heavy loads including:

  • Concrete blocks
  • Pallets
  • Pipes
  • Timber
  • Packaged goods.

A fork lifting hook attachment turns the telehandler into a crane to lift and carry loads where forklift trucks might not be able to access or not be suitable for the task.

Buckets can also be attached to a telehandler in order to shift loose materials such as sand and shale. 

Compact telehandlers

Compact telescopic handlers are smaller than traditional telehandlers, offering more manoeuvrability due to a tighter turning circle and the ability to work on sites where space is at a premium.

How much weight can a telehandler lift?

Telehandlers come in a wide variety of sizes with load capacity relative to the machine’s build. Lift capacity for the MT625H compact model is 2500kg whereas the MT1440's max capacity is 4000kg. However, when a telehandler is at full reach either vertically or horizontally, the safe lift capacity is less. 

Why hire a telescopic handler?

Telehandlers are ideal when a rough terrain forklift is needed owing to the machine’s climbing power and ability to move through tough outdoor conditions using both four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering.

Telehandlers offer an excellent combination of lift capacity with a lifting height that gives a long reach to fetch and place materials where they are needed.

A telehandler forklift is a cost-effective materials-handling solution as a telehandler can carry out a wide range of tasks with a simple changing of attachments.
