Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

Telehandlers in the last ten years, is also known as variable reach rough terrain lift truck, has gained great popularity in the material handling business. With excellent reason, these specific machinery have become the gem of the construction industry. These machines are really powerful, useful and versatile. Since the number of units and manufacturers has exploded over the last 5 years or so, there are presently a few of these machinery readily offered on the market.

The Telehandler is considered a Class 7 Powered Industrial Truck. In name only, this description means it is a rough terrain lift truck. Any of the similarities between a telehandler and a vertical mast type forklift literally ends on sight and on operation. There are some other significant differences between the two machinery discussed below.

As apposed to a vertical mast, a telehandler has a completely different appearance as it is made with a horizontal boom. A telehandler with a jib attachment from a distance could resemble more of a crane than a lift truck. The boom could extend and retract or telescope to lengths of 30 feet and beyond depending on the particular unit. The boom is also able to elevate to an angle from horizontal to about 70 degrees. Telehandlers have earned the nickname of "zoom booms" due to their ability to telescope. This name has become rather famous with the operators.

One more optional boom related function is known as a "Transaction". The telehandler outfitted with this option mounted on the chassis. When the operator starts it, the boom would move forward and back for distances up to 8 feet or more. Among the key benefits of this function is that it allows the forks to be withdrawn from a cargo cleanly or with no snags and the forks can be inserted under cleanly, regardless of the boom angle.

The construction industry have been revolutionized by zoom booms. They are able to accomplish many jobs which used to take much more man-power and time to finish.
