Telehandlers are heavy duty work machinery produced particularly to operate in rough terrain. This however, does not mean they could be driven without regard on rough environment. These equipments have a a lot bigger risk of tipping over or load loss when they are traveling on slopes.

If you do have to travel on a slope, make sure that you proceed carefully and slowly while keeping the load low. Prior to getting on the slope, downshift to 4WD and a lower gear. Using the engine brake will help to control the telehandler's speed. Try to avoid turning on a slope if possible. If you must make the turn, utilize extreme care and take it as wide as possible.

Under any conditions, avoid driving across very steep slopes. Ascend and descend slopes with the telehandler's heavy end pointing up the incline. Even when there is no cargo on the forks, the counterweighted rear of the machinery is fairly heavy; therefore, it can be necessary to drive in reverse up slopes. Once the telehandler is carrying a load, the front of the unit becomes the heavy end, and you will be able to back the machinery down the slopes.

Operator training is extremely important on a mixed jobsite. Rear pivot machines will usually operate on the same jobsite of coordinated steering equipment, where everyone is allowed to utilize all of the equipment. In this instance, a person who is used to utilizing a coordinated steer machinery can jump onto a rear-pivot equipment. A really significant difference between how these two units work depends on what part of the equipment extends outside of the turning radius.
