A Telescopic Handler is a machine that is widely used in agriculture and the construction industry. It is similar in function and appearance as a forklift but more like a crane. With the increased versatility of a single telescopic boom that can extend upwards and forwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a Pallet, forks, bucket, winch or muck grab.
In agriculture the most common attachment for a tele-handler is a bucket grab or bucket , the most common application is to move loads to and from places that would be unreachable for a 'conventional machine' which in this case is backhoe loadal or a wheeled loader.
Telehandlers have the ability to reach directly into a high-sided hopper or trailer. The latter application would otherwise require a conveyor, loading ramp, or something similar to that.
The telehandler can also work with a crane jib along with lifting loads, that attachments that include on the market are grain buckets, power booms and rotators.
The agricultural range can also be fitted with three point linkage and power take-off. This makes the telehandler a truly universal piece of equipment ideal for the agricultural industry.
