The Boom in Telehandlers

What’s easier and more efficient than a forklift? A Telehandler is your answer. These hydraulic machines can reach areas a traditional forklift cannot access as they not only can lift up and down, but they boom out to reach hard to access places.

Why Choose a Telehandler?

A telehandler can have all these superpowers from not only just soaking in the yellow sun but rather specifically designed with the ability to extend their boom on a diagonal for reaching those tough areas its smaller forklift cousin can’t. These lifting units are not just all talk as they are quickly becoming a necessary machine for small projects and even mine site work by being a much quicker, safer, and precise option.

Telehandlers, also referred to as telescopic handlers, boom lifts, teleporters or ‘those marvellous time savers’ can carry and place heavy materials to all difficult to reach areas. These multifunctional machines are strong and flexible and can lift a vast range of materials such as bricks, steel, timber, hay bales, sand, you name it!

History & Growth in Demand

1977 was where it all begun with the first ever Telehandler being invented by Joseph Cyrill Bamford. Since the lovechild of a crane and forklift was created, the construction, mining and agriculture industry has never been the same with the demand for Telehandlers growing exponentially worldwide.

Since the 70’s these units have only become more innovative and versatile. This has resulted in their popularity increasing every year and have reached an expected market growth of over 11% within the next five years.
