CAT Zoom Boom
Telescopic forklifts are designed to have a pronged lift which utilizes an arm or a crane to come over the truck's top. These lift trucks allow you to lift the cargo a lot higher and have better control of where it must go at those heights. This extra control is due to the fact that you are moving the load on the end of a crane, that is called a telescopic boom.
The cargo when positioned on the lift truck could move both towards and away from the forklift cab, that is a different feature that a traditional lift truck could not accomplish. The telescopic forklifts could offer both height and versatility. The telescopic forklift is really popular within the agricultural and construction businesses. Additionally, they are an excellent choice in situations where you must work with something which requires more control that a regular lift truck.
The frame tilt is a particular feature which is common to telehandlers. The operator can activate controls to alter the side to side or lateral angle of the frame. This particular frame could be moved 10 to 15 degrees in either direction from horizontal. There is a liquid filled tube which is curved and mounted within the cab. This is the frame tilt indicator or level indicator and works similar to a carpenter's level. It has a bubble indicator that indicates the lateral angle of the frame relative to the ground. This is a very handy apparatus which is used to ensure the frame is level prior to elevating the boom in rough environments.
Rear wheel steering is offered on some telehandler units, which is like a vertical mast type model. Most unit's provide 3 steering options which the operator can choose; front, crab and circle steering. For instance, if the operator chooses the "front" steering option, just the equipment's front wheels will react to the movement of the steering wheel.
