There are many companies that you can find online which offer a great number of options in new and used telehandlers. There are basically two types of telehandlers: one with a rigid chassis and those with an articulated chassis. The more commonly used type of Telehandler is the one with the rigid chassis, which has a mast mounted on the side perfect for being used for pallet work. However, it is not very good for performing loading work on a long term basis because when the bucket is carrying a load it puts a great deal of stress on the chassis and front joints. Increasing in popularity is the articulated Telehandler and loader. This type of Telehandler brings with it more longevity when using a good quality one that is used for bucket work. This loader is designed with a heavy-duty chassis that is intended for uses such as earthmoving and big pushing jobs. The benefit of the articulated Telehandler is that it has the brute strength and function of the articulated loader in combination with the lifting capabilities that come with a Telehandler.
If regularly maintained and kept in good condition, used telehandlers are a worthwhile purchase, especially if you simply cannot afford to buy a brand new one. Of course you must first determine the type of job or jobs for which you require a Telehandler before you can decide which type of Telehandler to purchase. If you have heavy-duty type work, then you should look into and purchase a heavy-duty Telehandler. You may have only a need for a mini Telehandler. You should not purchase a machine that you will end up overburdening, as that will create a safety hazard. There are many different subcategories of articulated and rigid telehandlers, so doing your homework is important. There are local distributors that you can visit, but you will most certainly find a wider range of options online. You can and should always ask plenty of questions to ensure you get the right piece of equipment to fit your specific needs.
When investigating used telehandlers, be sure to find out how long each machine has been in use, how they were used and in what conditions. Find out the individual features of each machine and their load capacities. Also find out about the machine's maintenance history. Do a price comparison of new and used telehandlers to determine the Telehandler, which will best fit your needs and wallet.
