Gehl pioneered radio remote control for its telescopic handlers, primarily for use with its Personnel Work Platform. Only Gehl and Manitou currently offer the technology on telehandlers. The wireless controller gives the operator full boom control and the ability to start and stop the engine from the platform. When the telehandler is equipped with other attachments to move materials, the operator can take the remote control wherever is necessary for a clear view of where the load is being landed. Estimated list price: $6,000.
