Haulotte Straight Boom Lifts

Telehandlers are equipments that are meant to work in rough terrain, however, that doesn't mean that they could be driven without any regard for the terrain. These kinds of machines have a a lot bigger risk of load loss or tipping over when they are traveling on slopes.

When traveling on a slope, make certain that you move slowly with the machinery while also keeping the load low. Downshift to 4WD and a lower gear, prior to getting on the slope. Utilizing the engine brake will actually help to control the telehandler's speed. Try not to turn on a slope if possible. If you must make the turn, take it as wide as possible and utilize extreme caution.

Always try to avoid driving across extremely steep slopes. Use the telehandler's heavy end pointing up the incline, when descending and ascending slopes. Even when there is no load on the forks, the counterweighted rear of the equipment is quite heavy; hence, it can be required to drive backwards up slopes. When the telehandler is carrying a load, the front of the unit becomes the heavy end, and you can back the equipment down the slopes.

On a mixed jobsite, operator training is really essential. The coordinated steering equipment, along with the rear-pivot equipment normally work on the same jobsite where everybody is permitted to operate all of the machinery. In this instance, an individual who is used to using a coordinated steer equipment could jump onto a rear-pivot machine. A very key difference between how these two units work has much to do with what part of the equipment extends outside of the turning radius.
