A telehandler (also known as telescopic handler), is most commonly used for agricultural applications such as moving hay or other loads to and from otherwise unreachable locations. They resemble a forklift but also have a boom, which makes it more similar to a crane. The boom extends forwards and upwards from the machine's body, the reach capacity depends on the model. Along with their boom, generally telehandlers have an enclosed cab and 4 large wheels.

What makes telehandlers so versatile is their ability to operate different attachments. Common attachments include, pallet forks, for lifting and moving pallet loads; buckets and bucket grabs, for easy moving and dumping of materials; and winches, for crane-like applications. Other attachments include, crane jibs, grain buckets, dirt buckets, sweeper, fence post drivers and rotators.

Telehandlers come in a huge range of shapes and sizes, each made for different needs. There are smaller telehandlers with reach up to 4 metres where less reach is required, while some of the largest telehandlers reach anywhere from 30 - 46 metres in height. The right telehandler largely depends on what you need it for, how high you need to go, and how much you need to lift.

While the telehandler can replace other machines such as small cranes, tower cranes, rough-terrain cranes, forklifts and elevated work platforms, their biggest selling point can also be their biggest drawback. That is, the higher the boom extends, the less stable the machine becomes. So it's always important to make sure the unit you're looking at has the appropriate counterweight to be able to handle the capacity you require at height.

Other aspects to consider in a telehandler are its engine power (HP) and its fuel type (such as diesel, LPG or dual fuel). There are plenty of brands in the market to choose from, each with their own unique designs, so it's always a good idea to do your research and find a brand or model that works for your specific task. If you're looking for a brand new telehandler, it's best to discuss your needs with your local dealer.

Whether you're looking to lift, carry loads, or work at heights, a telehandler is an ideal option for all this and more.
