What is a material handler and what are the key features?

A material handler is a type of heavy equipment or machinery designed for efficiently handling various types of materials in industries such as construction, recycling, and manufacturing. These machines are equipped with specific attachments or features to move, lift, and manipulate materials in a controlled and productive manner. The primary purpose of a material handler is to streamline material handling processes and improve operational efficiency. Here are some key characteristics and uses of material handlers:

Material handlers can be equipped with a variety of attachments such as grapples, magnets, clamshells, buckets, and forks. The choice of attachment depends on the specific materials being handled. Material handlers are often used in recycling facilities to sort and load materials such as scrap metal, paper, plastic, and wood. The versatility of attachments allows them to handle different types of materials. Material handlers play a crucial role in waste management operations, handling various types of waste materials in landfills or recycling centers. Material handlers are commonly used in ports and harbors for loading and unloading cargo containers, managing bulk cargo, and transferring goods between ships and storage areas.
