Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

Telescopic handlers are somewhat similar to forklifts. It possesses a single telescopic boom which extends forwards and upwards from the truck, and a counterweight in the rear. It functions more like a crane than a forklift. The boom can be outfitted with a variety of attachments. The most popular attachment is pallet forks, but the operator could also attach a bucket, muck grab or lift table. Also called a telehandler, this particular type of equipment is usually used in industry and agriculture.

When it is hard for a conventional forklift to access places, a telehandler is commonly utilized to move loads. Telehandlers are frequently utilized to unload pallets from inside a trailer. They are also more handy compared to a crane for lifting loads onto other high areas and rooftops.

The telehandler has one major limitation. Despite rear counterweights, the weight-bearing boom could cause the equipment to destabilize when it extends. Hence, the lifting capacity decreases as the distance between the front of the wheels and the centre of the load increases.

Telehandlers were developed within England by the Matbro company. Their design was based largely 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 back section, but these days the most common design has a strong chassis with a side cab and rear mounted boom.
