What is a Telescopic Handler?


A Telescopic handler, otherwise referred to as a telehandler, are multi-purpose machines often used across the construction and agriculture industries. Their primary role is lifting, moving and placing materials such as bricks or lumber – but they can be utilised across a number of different stages of a project.

Their varied usage means they are often some of the first machinery options seen on a project, and they can often be seen right through to the end of the project too.

But why use a telehandler, and what makes them so useful? Find out more.
