A telehandler, or telescopic handler, is a machine which is designed for moving loads to and from places which would be out of reach of most conventional machines, such as a forklift. Many of our customers are in the construction industry, where these telehandlers are used to move panes of glass into position, manoeuvre heavy goods to where they need to go, as well as moving waste material across site.

Telehandlers are ideal for many applications. Whether it is for construction, facilities management, or general-purpose material handling, these machines are built to do theat job incredibly well. They are often built to last, and we can provide machines with rugged, off-road capabilities. This makes them a great addition to many worksites as they augment cherry pickers, and other plant machines such as excavators.

A Forklift is useful in many instances, but many are built for indoor use only. Because of this, their small, non-marking tyres are ill-suited for many of the situations that a telehandler might find itself in. For example, many of our telehandlers have are rough-terrain capablcapabilitye and come equipped for more adverse use, such as an enclosed cabin. On a more basic level, they are built differently: a forklift has an up-and-down motion to its forks, while a telehandler can use its boom to act as a crane, when accompanied with the correct attachment, making it suited for all kinds of material movement.

When accompanied with an operatoroperated in a cherry picker, telehandlers can be used precisely, and improve safety - while also improving productivity.

To operate a telehandler, you must be appropriately trained on the machine you intend to use. However, general training is available. With ITS Training you can learn how to operate telehandlers with the Fork Lift Trucks scheme. You can see more about that here
