A telescopic handler is an important piece of equipment in the agricultural and construction industry. It is similar to a forklift but has a telescopic boom making it more like a crane and capable of more tasks than a regular forklift.
Telescopic handlers or telehandlers for hire, are available with a range of attachments depending on requirements.
Mr Plant Hire London have several options when it comes to telehandler hire.
JCB 525-60 Hi Vis Telehandler
The 525-60 is small but mighty. It can take loads of up to 2.5 tonnes and has a maximum lift height of 6 metres. At only 1.89 metres high this telescopic handler can access most areas, helped along by state of the art hydrostatic transmission and steering. The 525-60 is fitted with 4WD as standard, a compact wheelbase, tight turning circles, and is easy to manoeuvre around construction sites or smaller spaces. All the JCB telehandlers have an Adaptive Load Control system to prevent the machine tipping over, and the operator cab is ROPS (Rollover Protection System) and FOPS (Falling Objects Protection System) certified.
JCB 535-125 Telehandler
Taking it up a level, the 535-125 can take a heavier load and reach further. This telehandler for hire can lift up to 3500kg to a maximum of just over 12 metres. Like its smaller counterpart, the 535-125 is built for efficiency, safety and productivity. Single lever controls reduce operator fatigue whilst maintaining accurate and precise control. The design of a low boom profile and low boom pivot allow for excellent visibility all around, a key feature when considering telehandler hire.
JCB 540-170 Telehandler
For a reach of 16.7 metres and a max payload of 4 tonnes, the 540-170 telehandler for hire is perfect. Built with productivity in mind, the 540-170 hydraulics ensure the most efficient lifting, extending and pushing. It moves easily across all terrains and is fitted with an EcoMAX tier 4 engine. The EcoMAX engine has a variable speed cooling fan that reacts automatically to temperatures for maximum economy and minimum noise. This telescopic handler is fast and accurate, and uses modern technology such as LiveLink tracking for location data and Geofencing alerts to make sure the telehandler is only used in a particular area.
A factory fit immobiliser keeps the machine secure, either operated by a key or a 4 digit code keypad that automatically sets after a period of time once the telehandler is shut down. Mr Plant Hire London will deliver the machine to your location, although the equipment is fully road worthy with legal lights and reversing systems so it can be moved to another location if needed.
All telehandlers from Mr Plant Hire London are fully safety checked, and should only be operated by users qualified to do so. Contact Mr Plant Hire today for more information or to discuss the range of telehandler options available.
