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.
