Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

Caterpillar Telehandler Forklifts

A telescopic handler is like a forklift. It possesses one telescopic boom which extends both forwards and upwards from the truck, and a counterweight located within the back. It works a lot more like a crane than a forklift. The boom could be outfitted with various kinds of attachments. The most popular attachment is pallet forks, but the operator can also attach a muck grab, lift table or bucket. Also called a telehandler, this kind of equipment is commonly used in industry and agriculture.

A telehandler is often utilized to transport loads to and from places which will be difficult for a conventional forklift to access. Telehandlers are frequently utilized to unload pallets from in a trailer. They are also more handy than a crane for carrying loads onto other high areas and rooftops.

There is just one major limitation in utilizing telehandlers. Even with counterweights at the back, the weight-bearing boom could cause the equipment to destabilize when it extends. Therefore, the lifting capacity decreases when the distance between the front of the wheels and the centre of the load increases.

The Matbro company developed telehandlers within England. Their design was based on articulated cross country forklifts utilized in forestry. First versions had a centrally mounted boom on the front and a driver's cab on the back section, but these days the design that is most popular has a rigid chassis together with a side cab and rear mounted boom.
