At iseekplant, we understand that when you’ve got an important job to get done, you need durable and reliable equipment on hand. Telehandlers are a key member of many fleets with suppliers located across Australia. Telehandlers, hi-rail telehandlers, manitous and tyre handlers serve the civil and agricultural industries, mining operations, as well as the telecommunication and energy space.
Telehandlers essentially function as a combination of forklifts and cranes, as they can reach areas that standard machines simply can't access. Telehandlers are also easily manoeuvrable and get their name from the boom arm, which is “telescoped” out to increase the machine’s reach. Telehandlers are commonly used to transport and access equipment for construction work on rooftops, reaching into tall trailers or moving pallets. These machines add immense value to challenging projects, although they require experienced operators so that the chance of tipping is reduced. Operators are required to make calculations based on the load size and boom angle to ensure telehandlers have the correct counterweights for stabilisation. Telehandlers are often used for mining operations to transport massive dump truck tyres, which weigh over 4 tonnes. When you’re browsing telehandler suppliers on iseekplant, keep in mind that they are also known as telescopic forklifts, telescopic handlers or extendable reach forklifts. Some people also know these machines as deep reach trucks, since they can retrieve and deposit pallets stacked behind one another at the same time.
It is crucial to ensure that work is constantly being completed on project sites to reduce downtime and save money. Tyre handlers are designed to make routine maintenance safer, faster and easier by changing tyres on construction, mining and agricultural equipment. Whether you need to change tyres on small tractors or larger machines in the mining industry, our tyre handler hire suppliers can ensure you’ve got the best equipment for the job. Tyre handlers are designed to have optimised counterweights to provide maximum stability. Tyre handling trucks are also available in a range of types and sizes, so you can choose the best for your project needs.
