The telehandler is a construction vehicle which is designed to raise heavy weights and materials. It is basically considered to be a hybrid of the forklift and the crane when it comes to its capabilities and size. The boom is the telehandler's most prominent feature. It could be equipped with different kinds of attachments so as to allow it to perform other tasks.
By utilizing the right lifting angle and extension an operator can be safe whilst doubling or even tripling a telehandler's maximum lifting weight. It is really vital to keep in mind that if the arm is accidentally used wrong, the equipment could dangerously tip over because of the lifting weight being drastically cut.
In its visual manner, the telehandler looks more like a crane, although it has traits of a forklift and a crane. The large extending boom arm makes it more similar to a crane since it is able to reach up to high locations. Since it can easily lift equipment or heavy items, the telehandler also resembles a lift truck. As well, the arm looks similar to the end of a lift truck.
