Considerations when renting a telehandler lift

When renting a telehandler lift the most important consideration is the weight and height of your materials and movement.  This will determine the size and weight of the lift you should rent or lease to maintain a balance.  Careful calculations must be made before using the telehandler lift.

Features of telehandler lifts

The main, identifying feature of telehandler lifts is the telescopic boom.  The boom is attached with a hinge to the center of the rear of the machine.  The operator’s cab is placed to the side of the boom.  While a fork is the most common attachment, a wide variety of others are available, including buckets, grapples, hoppers, lift hooks, and work platforms. Contact your KWIPPED network supplier for a complete list of attachment options.

How telehandler lifts work

Telehandler lifts have a large telescopic boom that extends upwards and outwards.  The boom can have any of a number of attachments, the most common of which is a pallet fork.  Material is loaded onto the fork and then the boom is extended to the dump location.  Telehandler lifts are especially useful for getting materials to roofs and towers.
Operators must be cautious of the telehandler’s inherent instability.  The more the boom is extended the less weight it can lift safely.  The cab will contain a chart or a monitor for the operator to determine appropriate weight, height, and boom angle.

About telehandler lifts

Telehandler lifts are used to lift materials to high places at construction sites and warehouses.  They are similar to a cross between a large forklift and a crane.  Telehandler lifts are also known as telescopic handlers.
