A full size or compact telehandler is an essential machine for almost any job site. Being able to bring an entire load of materials or supplies close to where crews are working allows your team to work much faster and more efficiently, saving everyone time and money. Having things like joists lifted to the top floor for installation, rather than manually lifting, saves even more.
The telehandler is popular because of its functionality and versatility. It comes in very large to very small capacities (as well as regular to compact telehandler designs) so units are optimized for all different tasks on a work site. They are especially useful because of the weight that they can carry but also (unlike traditional forklifts) because of their ability to reach up and over obstacles. The compact telehandler offers even more versatility, as it can work in highly confined spaces where other machines would not fit.
Telehandlers greatly increase the efficiency of your workforce. The overall operating time that the machine is used over the course of a year will help dictate whether owning, leasing, or renting one is the most appropriate for you.
