What is a telehandler used for?

A telehandler, also known as a telescopic handler or a teleporter, is a versatile lifting machine widely used in construction, agriculture and industry. It is characterized by a telescopic boom, similar to a forklift, but with additional capabilities. The key feature of a telehandler is its ability to extend and retract the telescopic boom, allowing it to reach forward and upward to lift and place loads in areas that may be difficult to access with conventional forklifts.

Check list telehandler inspection

Here are eight main points to consider in a telehandler inspection:

  1. Structural Inspection:
    • Check for any signs of damage or deformation in the frame, boom and chassis.
    • Inspect welds for cracks or other abnormalities.
    • Look for any loose or missing bolts.
  2. Telescopic Boom System:
    • Inspect the telescopic boom for any visible damage.
    • Check the extension and retraction mechanism for smooth operation.
    • Verify that all locking pins are working properly.
  3. Hydraulic System:
    • Check hydraulic hoses and connections for leaks.
    • Inspect the hydraulic fluid level and ensure it meets the manufacturer’s specifications.
    • Test all hydraulic functions, including lifting and tilting.
  4. Cabin/Controls:
    • Verify that all controls, levers, and switches are in good working order.
    • Check the instrument panel for warning lights or error codes.
    • Test the functionality of safety features, such as emergency stop buttons.
  5. Tires:
    • Inspect tires and rims for wear or visible damage.
  6. Brakes:
    • Test the brake system including the park brake.
    • Check for any unusual noises or vibrations during braking.
    • Inspect brake pads and discs for wear.
  7. Safety Devices:
    • Check all safety devices, such as overload sensors and limit switches.
    • Verify the condition and operation of safety interlocks.
    • Check the operator’s manual for any specific safety features unique to the telehandler model.
  8. Attachments and Accessories:
    • Inspect any attachments or accessories for damage or wear.
    • Ensure that attachment locking mechanisms are secure.
    • Verify that quick-coupling systems are functioning properly.

A pre-delivery-inspection of used machinery is essential to prevent unforeseen issues and potential financial losses. It enables you to assess the equipment’s condition, identify hidden problems and negotiate a fair price. Have an experienced technician check the machine or contact Mevas for a thorough inspection.

What is a Telehandler and what is it used for?

A telehandler, also known as a telescopic handler or a telehandler forklift, is a versatile construction and agricultural equipment that combines the features of a forklift and a telescopic boom. It is designed to lift, move, and place loads using various attachments at the end of the boom. The key features of a telehandler include a telescoping boom, which can extend forward and upward, and a forklift attachment at the end of the boom. Telehandlers come with various attachments, such as forks, buckets, and hooks, allowing them to adapt to different tasks. The ability to extend the boom provides added reach and flexibility, making telehandlers a valuable piece of equipment in a wide range of industries.

  1. Material Handling: Telehandlers are used to lift and move materials to different heights and distances, making them valuable for construction sites, warehouses, and agricultural operations. They can handle palletized loads, construction materials, and other heavy objects.
  2. Construction: Telehandlers are widely used in construction for tasks such as placing and removing building materials, reaching elevated areas, and handling loads in tight or hard-to-reach spaces.
  3. Agriculture: In agriculture, telehandlers are employed for tasks like loading and unloading bales of hay, lifting and transporting bags of feed, and handling various materials on farms.
  4. Landscaping: Telehandlers are utilized in landscaping projects to move soil, plants, and other materials. The telescopic boom allows for reaching over obstacles or onto elevated surfaces.
  5. Maintenance and Repairs: Telehandlers are used for maintenance work in industrial settings and for repairing and installing equipment. The versatility of the telescopic boom makes them suitable for tasks that require reach and height.
  6. Utilities: Telehandlers are employed by utility companies for tasks such as lifting and placing utility poles, handling equipment for power line maintenance, and accessing elevated work areas.
