CAT Zoom Boom

CAT Zoom Boom

Telescopic forklifts are engineered to have a pronged lift which utilizes an arm or a crane to come over the truck's top. These lift trucks allow you to raise the load much higher and have better control of where it goes at those heights. This additional control is due to the fact that you are moving the load on the end of a crane, that is referred to as a telescopic boom.

The load when placed on the lift truck can move both towards and away from the forklift cab, that is a unique feature which a regular forklift could not accomplish. The telescopic forklifts could provide both versatility and height. The telescopic forklift is super popular within the agricultural and construction businesses. Additionally, they are an excellent choice in situations where you may need to work with something which needs more control that a regular lift truck.

Frame Tilt
The frame tilt is a unique feature that is common to telehandlers. The operator could activate controls to alter the side to side or lateral angle of the frame. This particular frame could be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a liquid filled tube that is curved and mounted in the cab. This is the frame tilt indicator or level indicator and works like a carpenter's level. It has a bubble indicator that indicates the lateral angle of the frame relative to the ground. This is a really helpful device which is used to ensure the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough setting.

Steering
Rear wheel steering is provided on several telehandler models, that is similar to a vertical mast type unit. Most models offer 3 steering options that the operator can choose; crab, circle and front steering. For instance, if the operator chooses the "front" steering option, just the front wheels of the machine would react to the movement of the steering wheel.
