Telehandler forklifts are used widely in the construction trades. Telehandler forklifts are similar to industrial forklifts, but they have two major differences; these machines can reach out beyond their base and lift to a variety of boom angles.

The risk factors with these machines are similar to forklifts:

• Weight

• Height

• Ground conditions

• Operating radius-how far you move the load horizontally away from the machine

• Operating in out of level conditions-this should be avoided!

Let’s look at the Load Chart above for some interesting facts and remember follow the machine’s Load Chart at all times.

**Maximum Lifting Height**

The maximum lifting height(vertical) for this machine is 55’; the maximum load you can lift to 55’ is 5,000 pounds.

**Maximum Lifting Radius**

The maximum radius (forward reach horizontally) for this machine is 43’ with a maximum capacity of 3,500 pounds. As the radius increases, capacity decreases, always!

**Maximum Lifting Capacity**

The maximum lifting capacity is 12,000 pounds for this machine. According to this chart you can lift 12,000 pounds to a maximum height of 21’ and a maximum radius of 12’.
