Manitou Zoom Boom

Manitou Zoom Boom

During the last ten years, telehandlers, also known as rough terrain variable reach lift trucks, have surpassed the reputation of powered mobile machines. These machinery have become the gem of the construction business and with good reason. These machinery are very strong, practical and versatile. Because the number of manufacturers and models has exploded over the last 5 years or so, there are presently a few of these machinery 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 lift truck. Any of the similarities between a vertical mast type of forklift and a telehandler literally ends on operation and on sight. There are some other major differences between the two machines discussed below.

As apposed to a vertical mast, a telehandler has a completely different appearance as it is made with a horizontal boom. A telehandler with a jib attachment from a distance could look more like a crane rather than a lift truck. The boom can retract and extend or telescope as long as 30 feet and beyond depending on the specific model. The boom is also able to elevate to an angle from horizontal to roughly 70 degrees. Telehandlers have earned the nickname of "zoom booms" due to their ability to telescope. This name has become rather famous with the operators.

Another optional boom related function is known as a "Transaction". The telehandler outfitted with this option mounted on the chassis. When the operator starts it, the boom would move back and forward for distances up to 8 feet or more. Amongst the key advantages of this function is that it enables the forks to be cleanly withdrawn from a load and the forks could be inserted under cleanly, regardless of the boom angle.

Zoom booms have changed the construction industry. They can perform numerous jobs which used to take much more man-power and time to finish.
