What is Telehandler Crane?

A Telehandler Crane (also known as a telescopic handler, teleporter or boom lift) is a versatile piece of machinery. This is because it combines the capabilities of a forklift, crane and a work platform, becoming a forklift hybrid. The crane also has an extendable boom which offers increased versatility making it essential for jobs with rough terrain and challenging conditions.

What are the benefits of a Telehandler Crane?

The Telehandler Crane offers a range of benefits on the worksite because it varies in function. Due to a simple, quick hitch design, an operator can change attachments efficiently which allows it to be used as a telescopic forklift, or to lift loads.

Which one should you hire?

Before making a decision about which type of crane you want to hire, it is integral for you to consider what the job at hand requires. Such as assessing if it is an easily accessible worksite, if it is a job which needs a crane with versatility and attachments and what size of crane would work onsite. You also need to consider the types of loads which will need to be lifted and what the worksite’s terrain is like.

A Telehandler Crane should be chosen for jobs which requires a crane with versatility and a range of attachments, to cut down on the number of machines onsite. Whereas a Mini Crawler Crane would be more suited to smaller sites with restricted access. (Also Read: What Type of Mobile Crane Should I Hire?)
