Telescopic Handler Forklift Training

Telescopic Handlers are an invaluable tool in the construction and farming industries.

Telescopic Handlers are all terrain vehicles with either two or four wheel steer/drive and they can be articulated.  Due to the fact that they extend the load forward of the front wheels getting progressively further away they act very much like mobile cranes, requiring a great deal of skill and concentration for them to be effective and safe. 

Telescopic Handler Forklift

Categories of telescopic handler forklift trucks:
J2 - Variable reach lift truck - up to 9m lift
J3 - High lift telescopic truck - above 9m lift

Attachments are commonly fitted to enhance the varity of tasks that these expensive vehicles can perform.  Popular attachments are side shift, fork positioners and also non hydraulic attachments such as jibs, sand/grain buckets, bale spear, etc.
