Whatever type of project you’re working on, chances are using a forklift will maximize your efficiency. The question is – which is the best type of forklift for the job? When people hear the word "forklift," they think of warehouse forklifts, but the telehandler and mini telehandler are also a type of forklift. The bottom line is renting a forklift saves you time and money by giving you the flexibility to get things done in a fraction of the time it takes using other methods. In this article, we'll discuss the differences between the telehandler, mini telehandler, and industrial forklift.
What is a Telehandler?
Telehandlers are one the most in-demand machines we offer for equipment rental. Also known as telescopic handlers, the telehandler combines the benefits of a forklift and crane into a compact machine. The boom handle has interchangeable attachment heads, and the telehandler provides more reach, power, and maneuverability than an industrial forklift.
Four-Wheel Drive Functionality
A telehandler is perfect for unstable or rough terrain conditions. The on-road and off-road flexibility makes the telehandler an ideal choice for outdoor jobs in a multitude of industries, including construction, agriculture, and many industrial settings. Because they function so well on uneven surfaces, a telehandler is one of the most common machines found on new construction sites.
What is a Mini-Telehandler?
Compact or mini-telehandlers provide the same benefits of standard-sized telehandlers in a smaller package. Compact telehandlers are ideal when you're operating in tight spaces. These smaller telehandlers can work in much tighter spaces, including parking garages and inside buildings. Another benefit of the mini-telehandler its ease of transport from worksite to worksite.
