Equipment Type

 Telehandlers

Telehandlers are utility lifting machines, usually mounted on a four-wheel drive chassis and equipped with a telescopic boom that can provide lift heights to 50 feet or more. Telehandlers most often are fitted with pallet forks for lifting materials on construction sites, but some models are designed also to handle buckets and other attachments.

The GCD25 Carrydeck industrial crane has been updated with a Tier 4-Final Cummins QSB4.5L engine.

The Genie GTH-844 rough terrain telehandler now comes with a 74-horsepower, Tier 4-Final engine option, which the company positions as a “less complex machine at a lower price point.”

The Extendo 944B is the first in a new generation of telehandlers

Four telehandlers comprise the TH series, which replaces the VR series
