What can it do
It is a plant machine that is used in farming and agriculture it is used to lift and grab with use of a single telescopic boom, The unique selling point of the telehandler is unlike a crane you can add attachments such as metal pallet forks, a variety of different sized buckets and even lift tables it has increased versatility the telescopic boom can move up and forward a bit like a forklift truck.
The telehandlers boom increases and decreases while carrying a large load, this can also be a hindrance as the boom acts as a lever and despite attaching counterbalances it can still become unstable when large loads are applied, which means you can’t sometimes lift as much as you need, It has a very strong rigid frame and in most cases the cab is positioned to the right or left, which helps make room for the boom and also acts as a counterbalance
