Fork Lift Truck Training

Rough Terrain & Industrial Telescopic Handler


Both the rough terrain and industrial telescopic handler forklift is a versatile fork lift truck that can save space in loading/ unloading areas due to its ability to ‘reach’ over any obstacles.

Industrial telescopic handler truck training

Both are widely used in the agriculture and building industry. It is similar in appearance and function to a forklift but is used predominantly in the same way as a crane. It has a single telescopic boom that can extend forwards and upwards away from the vehicle.

They can use a range of attachments including forks, buckets, clamps and shovels (adequate training is required for each attachment). The most common application is to move loads to and from places that are deemed unreachable for a conventional forklift.

The rough terrain telescopic handler is used on farms, building sites, for waste disposal, logging or use in builder’s merchants.

The industrial telescopic handler is useful in loading/unloading vehicles and trailers from one side only, therefore saving space.
