Telehandlers are big scale construction vehicles engineered to lift heavy weights and materials. These are considered basically a crane and forklift hybrid in terms of its size and capabilities. The boom is the most important feature on a telehandler. It can be equipped with a range of attachments so as to enable it to complete various other tasks.
An operator could be safe whilst doubling or even tripling a telehandler's maximum lifting weight by utilizing the right lifting angle and extension. It is very important to keep in mind that if the arm is accidentally used wrong, the equipment can dangerously tip over because of the lifting weight being drastically cut.
In its visual manner, the telehandler more resembles a crane, although it has features of a crane and a forklift. The big extending boom arm makes it more similar to a crane as it could reach up to high areas. Because it could easily lift equipment or heavy objects, the telehandler also performs like a lift truck. What's more, the arm looks similar to the end of a lift truck.
