JCB Telehandlers and Telescopic Handlers
A telehandler is sometimes also called a telescopic handler, a telescopic forklift or a telehandler forklift. Whatever you choose to call it, the JCB telehander is widely used in agriculture and industry.
Of course, because there are numerous uses for these machines, we carry a number of different models in different sizes that are better suited for some jobs.
The telehandler is generally used like a forklift, but the boom, or telescopic cylinder, actually works like a crane, extending forwards or backwards, up and away from the vehicle. However, it’s not just a forklift, because end of the boom can be fitted with various attachments, including buckets, pallet forks, muck grabbers or winches.
The most common attachment for a telehandler in construction and industry is pallet fork. It’s used to move loads that a conventional forklift couldn’t reach and that would demand a crane.
In agriculture, the most common attachment for a telehandler is a bucket, used to move loads to and from high places that would otherwise require cranes or other equipment.
Here’s an overview of what we carry on our lot.
