Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

Over the last decade, telehandlers, also referred to as rough terrain variable reach forklifts, have exceeded the reputation of powered mobile machines. These machinery have become the gem of the construction industry and with good reason. These machinery are useful, versatile and extremely strong. As several units and manufacturers has exploded over the last 5 years or so, there are now a number of these machines readily offered on the market.

The Telehandler is considered a Class 7 Powered Industrial Truck. In name only, this description means it is a rough terrain forklift. Any of the similarities between a telehandler and a vertical mast type forklift literally ends on operation and on sight. There are several other significant distinctions between the two machinery discussed below.

Compared to a vertical mast, a telehandler has a completely different look since it is made with a horizontal boom. A telehandler with a jib attachment from a distance can look more like a crane than a lift truck. The boom is able to telescope or retract and extend as long as 30 feet and beyond depending on the particular model. The boom is also able to elevate to an angle from horizontal to about 70 degrees. Telehandlers have been called "zoom booms" due to their ability to telescope. This name has become rather popular with the operators.

"Transaction" is a different optional boom related function. Telehandlers which are outfitted with this alternative have a boom which is mounted on the chassis in such a way that when the operator starts it, the entire boom to travel back and forward, specifically for distances up to eight feet or so. One of the main benefits of this function is that it allows the forks to be cleanly withdrawn from a cargo and the forks could be cleanly inserted underneath, regardless of the boom angle.

The construction business have been revolutionized by zoom booms. They can accomplish many tasks that used to take much more man-power and time to finish.
