Telehandler Training in West Lothian Scotland

Telescopic Handler, commonly known as the Telehandler works off the same principles as a counterbalance forklift. As with the counterbalance forklift, it has a counterweight at the rear allowing it to carry objects of similar weight, it has a boom which can extend and reach places a standard forklift can’t. Widely used on building sites and in the agriculture industry due to its ability to negotiate rough terrain with its specially adapted tyres and suspension where a forklift would struggle.
