Telehandler Forklifts - Rotating and Heavy Lift
Telehandler forklifts offer manoeuvrability for a range of jobs. The term “telehandler” is an abbreviation that is short for “telescoping handler”. This is in reference to the boom that does the lifting which extends from the rear of the vehicle and which telescopes down to a shorter length when it is not fully extended.
Telehandlers offer a great deal of versatility and can lift things in various directions rather than just vertically. They make easy work of lifting loads both forwards and backwards without having to move the vehicle, meaning jobs can be completed quicker and with less hassle!
They can be used to lift and move heavy loads and can be fitted with a variety of attachments which makes them an extremely flexible and cost effective working at height vehicle. Each attachment is designed for a specific task, meaning the mobile elevating work platform can be adapted easily to become industry-specific. Common attachments include fork carriages, work platforms, hooks, grabbers, and more. This makes them suitable for lifting a wide range of materials including pallets, concrete blocks, bars, pipes, and packaged items.
Hire Safe Solutions have a range of telehandler MEWPs available to hire, lease, or buy. Our range of both rotating and heavy duty lifts from industry-leader, Magni, provide durable and reliable platforms for carrying out work at height.
Rotating telehandlers, sometimes referred to as roto handlers, are widely recognised as a must-have on many modern construction and work sites. They combine the versatility of a telehandler with a crane and access platform, all in one unit. This multi-purpose platform offers fantastic manoeuvrability with 360° rotation capabilities, meaning it’s great for tackling compact conditions and tight turning circles. Magni roto machines are suitable for a variety of terrains and provide amazing levels of safety due to their patented load control system that can detect the risk of overload during use and inhibit aggravating movements. They are often used in the construction and production sectors and are ideal for jobs relating to overhead power work, building maintenance, and steel erection.
