Telehandler Forklift Truck

From 1 Day at £399 + VAT per day for 3 persons

A tele handler fork lift truck has very similar qualities to the standard fork lift truck, however it has more of the qualities of a crane than a fork lift. These trucks are used to move pallets from higher areas than standard reach trucks. These machines can sometimes be trickier to operate than standard fork lift trucks, so making sure that anyone operating them keeps up to date training is essential for the safety of the operator and others in the workplace. Having up to date training will also increase productivity for the operators.
