A telescopic handler, also called a telehandler, teleporter, or boom lift, is a machine widely used in the agriculture and infrastructure industries. It is somewhat like a forklift but has a boom (Telescopic cylinder), making it more a crane than a forklift, with the increased versatility of a single telescopic or articulating boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or winch. Due to these cross overs and complexities, it is essential operators fully understand the machine they operate.
Attendees will be assessed through theory and practical skills of the telehandler applications including;
