Telehandler Forklift Training
Commonly used in the Construction Industry as well as in Agriculture the telescopic boom and rough terrain capabilities to move loads to and from places unreachable for a conventional forklift have made them invaluable assets.
For example, telehandlers have the ability to remove palletised cargo from within a trailer and to place loads on rooftops and other high places. The latter application would otherwise require a crane, which is not always practical or time-efficient.
With the ability to fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or winch: turning it into a mobile crane make this a versatile addition to any company.
