Maximizing Your Jobsite Efficiency: Understanding the Benefits and Uses of Telehandler Rentals
Telehandler rentals are becoming increasingly popular as a material handling solution on construction and industrial sites, as they are adaptable, mobile, and a cost-effective solution to improving worksite productivity. So, whether you know you need a telehandler or if you are just researching, this blog will help answer your questions.
What is a Telehandler?
Telehandlers are material handling equipment that are used to lift, move, and place heavy loads precisely. They have a telescoping boom and various attachments to perform multiple tasks, such as frames for carrying windows, work platforms for personnel, and hooks for cables – to name a few.
The telescopic boom extends to large heights, and the body of the telehandler acts as a counterweight, along with stabilising outriggers. Because of this, they have exceptional vertical and horizontal reach for a large working envelope. As well as this, their compact design allows them to manoeuvre in tight spaces, making them ideal for many industries.
Features of Telehandler Rentals
Telehandlers are an increasingly attractive solution for improving daily workflows, partly owing to their technical capabilities, but also partly due to the increase in choice and national hire. Using a telehandler might have been considered impractical, too expensive, or dependent on smaller local businesses with varying levels of availability. But now, with the increase in the number of UK-wide companies, consistency in pricing, performance, and availability have made telehandlers a more attractive prospect.
Telehandlers are fitted with a range of attachments that can be used for several different jobs. Forks, jibs, and buckets are the most common, but there are other, more specialised attachments for a range of industries. And when your job requirements change, you can simply replace the attachment. This makes a telehandler one of the most versatile and indispensable additions to any worksite.
Our range of telehandlers are equipped with powerful engines and hydraulic systems that are built for long days and demanding jobs alike – from small, sub 5 metre machines to 20 metre diesel JCBs with a four-tonne lifting capacity, we can get you what you need.
Protecting workers and anyone working nearby is an essential priority for telehandler manufacturers, which is why they are outfitted with a variety of safety safeguards, such as automatic shutdown mechanisms, stability control systems, and rollover prevention.
Uses of Telehandler Rentals
Construction: Telehandlers are an essential tool for construction sites, where they are used for various tasks, including loading and unloading materials, handling and stacking pallets, and clearing sites.
Industrial: Telehandlers are also commonly used in industrial settings, where they handle and transport heavy loads, stack and move materials, and perform various other tasks. They are particularly useful in the steel industry, as their lifting capacity means they can manipulate heavy foundry components and end products safely and easily.
Agriculture: Telehandlers are an essential tool for agriculture, where they are used to transport and handle heavy loads, stack and move produce (such as hay bales), and aid in the unloading of farm machinery and equipment. The versatility and mobility of telehandlers make them ideal for agriculture, where they can be used to manoeuvre in tight spaces and easily reach high places.
