Everything You Need To Know About Telehandlers

Learn all about Telehandlers, including Telehandlers from different manufacturers such as JCB, to help you decide which one is right for your project.

If you’re lifting heavy items and taking them to height, then you should think of a Telehandler as a go-to item.

JCB Telehandlers first became popular in warehouses where items needed to be lifted onto high shelving units, and on construction sites where building materials needed to be lifted. But now, modern Telehandlers can be used in almost any application. Let’s take a detailed look at the benefits of Telehandler hire and consider which Telehandler may be best for your job or project.

What are the Benefits of Using a Telehandler?

The main benefit of a Telehandler is the versatility of the machinery. Not too long ago, many jobs on site would require multiple pieces of machinery. This would cost you time, as you’d need to wait for things to be delivered. Plus, it would also cost you a lot of money, because you’d need to hire multiple items.

But now, Telehandler hire is a cost-effective solution for your project because it’s far cheaper to hire this versatile piece of equipment and a few attachments than it is to hire several pieces of machinery. Plus, thanks to our great range of Telehandlers for hire, you’re sure to find a piece of machinery that suits your tasks.

Which Telehandler is Best for Me?

The Telehandler that best suits your needs will depend on the project you’re carrying out. Luckily, at YardLink, we have a great range available and an option to suit almost every task. Plus, if you book online with us, you may even be able to receive your Telehandler on the very same day.

Compact Telehandlers

If space is limited on your site, then a 2-ton Telehandler or a 2.5-ton Telehandler will allow you to work safely and efficiently. Both of these Telehandlers work perfectly in compact spaces, and they’re perfect for loading and unloading heavy items on a site where you can’t easily use a traditional forklift. Plus, they both have a lifting height over 4 metres, so they can allow you to access those hard to reach places.

These Telehandlers for hire also have four wheel drive, so you can turn and travel with ease on uneven and boggy sites. The spacious cabins also come with easily accessible controls, full visibility and an adjustable driver’s seat. These comfortable working conditions provide greater efficiency and productivity because you can stay comfortable for longer and get the job done quicker than you thought possible.

Plus, both of these compact Telehandlers can lift over 2,000kg at a time.

Large Telehandlers

If you need something even bigger and tougher, we have a wide range of Telehandler hire options available, including a great selection of 4-ton Telehandlers.

If you need to reach a great height, then the 4-ton Telehandler (29.5m height) is perfect for the task. This roto Telehandler also provides extra versatility because it offers 360° of continuous rotation, so you can work efficiently and quickly. Alternatively, the 4-ton Telehandler (26m height) and the 4-ton Telehandler (24.6m height) are capable of lifting up to 4,000kg of materials.

If you don’t quite need that amount of height, then our 4-ton Telehandler (20m height) and 4-ton Telehandler (17m height) still provide a comparable level of lifting power. They’re designed to meet the challenges of any site head on, so they feature unrivalled manoeuvrability, unparalleled build quality and all-day operator comfort.

How to Use Attachments for your Telehandler

As we mentioned earlier, a number of attachments are also available for your Telehandler, so you can make this useful piece of machinery even more versatile. For example, a bucket attachment allows you to pick up and dump construction materials, while fork extensions allow you to handle pallets with great stability. When you’re ready to clean your site, you can even add a sweeper or cleaner attachment to the front of your Telehandler.

These attachments help save you a substantial amount of time and an operator can swap the attachments in a matter of minutes, meaning you’ll have even more time to get on with the job at hand. By preventing down time, you can get the job done quickly and easily.
