Telescopic forklifts are designed to have a pronged lift that utilizes a crane or an arm to come over the truck's top. These forklifts allow you to raise the cargo a lot higher and have better control of where it must go at those heights. This additional control is because of the fact that you are moving the load on the end of a crane, that is known as a telescopic boom.
The cargo can also move both away from and towards the forklift cab too and this different feature is something which regular forklifts are unable to do. The telescopic forklifts are able to offer both versatility and height. The telescopic lift truck is really popular within the agricultural and construction industries. Moreover, they are a great choice in situations where you must work with something which needs more control that a regular lift truck.
The frame tilt is a particular feature that is common to telehandlers. The operator is able to activate controls to alter the lateral or side to side angle of the frame. This particular frame can be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a liquid filled tube which is curved and mounted in 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 lateral angle of the frame relative to the ground. This is a really handy apparatus which is used to make certain that the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough environments.
Rear wheel steering is provided on several telehandler units, that is like a vertical mast type model. Most models provide 3 steering options which the operator can select; crab, circle and front steering. For example, if the operator chooses the "front" steering option, only the front wheels of the machinery would react to the movement of the steering wheel.
