Farmers across BC are constantly looking for equipment that is going to help them work smarter and more efficiently. Tractors and traditional loaders are a staple on any farm, but increasingly farmers are looking at telescopic boom material handlers for agriculture applications.
Telescopic boom material handlers (telehandlers) are often used for construction applications due to their impressive reach and ability to maneuver in small areas. These same attributes apply on the farm as well, telehandlers are taking over as the go-to machine for agriculture applications all over North America. The hydraulically operated telescopic boom can either be fixed or articulated and can be used to reach greater heights and distances than a tractor with a fork attachment.
Telehandlers can be used to stack round bales in columns of 6 levels or move material from the edge of the barn to a large dumper in seconds. One of the biggest advantages of a telehandler is their ability to perform multiple jobs around the farm with a variety of attachments, including:
- Lifting Hooks
