CAT Zoom Boom
Telescopic forklifts are engineered to have a pronged lift which uses a crane or an arm to come over the truck's top. These kinds of lift trucks enable you to lift the load much higher and have better control of where it must go at those heights. This extra control is due to the fact that you are moving the load on the end of a crane, that is called a telescopic boom.
The cargo when positioned on the forklift can move both away from and towards the forklift cab, that is a unique feature which a regular lift truck could not accomplish. The telescopic forklifts could provide both height and versatility. The telescopic forklift is really common within the agricultural and construction industries. Furthermore, they are a great choice in circumstances where you might need to work with something that requires more control that a standard lift truck.
A unique feature common to telehandlers is the frame tilt. Operators can activate the lateral controls to move the angle of the frame from side to side. This particular frame can be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a tube filled with liquid which is curved and mounted within the cab. This is the level indicator or frame tilt indicator and works similar to a carpenter's level. It has a bubble indicator which indicates the lateral angle of the frame relative to the ground. This is a really helpful device which is utilized to ensure the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough environments.
Rear wheel steering is offered on some telehandler units, which is similar to a vertical mast type model. The majority of models provide 3 steering options that the operator may select; front, crab and circle steering. Like for instance, if the operator selects the "front" steering option, just the equipment's front wheels will react to the steering wheel's movement.
