Telescopic forklifts are engineered to have a pronged lift which utilizes a crane or an arm to come over the truck's top. These kinds of lift trucks enable you to lift the cargo a lot higher and have great control of where it must go at those heights. This extra control is due to the fact that you are moving the cargo on the crane's end, that is referred to as a telescopic boom.
The load is also able to move both away from and towards the forklift cab as well and this unique feature is something which basic forklifts are unable to do. The telescopic forklifts are able to offer both height and versatility. The telescopic forklift is super popular within the construction and agricultural businesses. Moreover, they are a good choice in situations where you might need to work with something which requires more control that a standard forklift.
A unique feature common to telehandlers is the frame tilt. Operators can activate the lateral controls to move the frame's angle from side to side. This frame could be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a liquid filled tube which is curved and mounted within the cab. This is the level indicator or frame tilt indicator and works similar to a carpenter's level. It has a bubble indicator which indicates the frame's lateral angle relative to the ground. This is an extremely helpful apparatus which is used to make sure that the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough environments.
Rear wheel steering is provided on some telehandler models, which is like a vertical mast type unit. Most models offer 3 steering options that the operator may choose; crab, circle and front steering. For example, if the operator chooses the "front" steering option, just the front wheels of the machine would react to the steering wheel's movement.
