Many industries use standard forklifts for moving heavy items, such as pallets, around a warehouse setting. However, business working in constantly rough terrains, such as a construction site, require a forklift designed for off-road use. Telescoping forklifts offer the off-road capabilities you need on difficult job sites.
Telescoping forklifts have the lifting and transporting capabilities of a standard forklift, with the added reach benefits of a crane. They are most commonly used to transport material to and from places that are unreachable by a standard forklift. These telescoping forklifts have the ability of transporting material directly from a trailer or other holding area to high reach places such as rooftops. Without the use of a telescoping forklift, material would first need to be unloaded with a conventional forklift and then transported with a crane or bucket lift, adding time and decreasing efficiency of the process. The boom tip on a telescoping forklift can be outfitted with a number of accessories, from a bucket to a fork attachment. This makes the telescoping forklift a very versatile tool on a construction project.
