Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

Telehandlers over the past decade, is also known as variable reach rough terrain forklift, has gained great fame in the material handling business. With good reason, these specific machines have become the gem of the construction business. These types of machines are practical, versatile and extremely powerful. As several units and manufacturers has exploded over the last 5 years or so, there are now a number of these machinery readily available on the market.

The Telehandler is considered a Class 7 Powered Industrial Truck. In name only, this description means it is a rough terrain lift truck. Any of the similarities between a telehandler and a vertical mast type forklift literally ends on sight and on operation. There are several other significant differences between the two machines discussed below.

As apposed to a vertical mast, a telehandler has a completely different appearance because it is designed with a horizontal boom. A telehandler with a jib attachment from a distance can look more like a crane rather than a forklift. The boom could telescope or extend and retract to lengths of 30 feet and beyond which depends on the particular model. The boom can also elevate to an angle from horizontal to roughly 70 degrees. Telehandlers have been called "zoom booms" because of their ability to telescope. This name has become rather popular with the operators.

"Transaction" is a different optional boom related function. Telehandlers which are outfitted with this option have a boom that is mounted on the chassis in such a way that when the operator starts it, the whole boom to travel back and forward, specifically for distances up to eight feet or so. One of the key benefits of this function is that it enables the forks to be cleanly withdrawn from a cargo and the forks can be inserted under cleanly, regardless of the boom angle.

The construction industry have been revolutionized by zoom booms. They could perform numerous jobs that used to take a lot more man-power and time to do.
