Similar to standard lift trucks, the lifting attachment could be tilted from its horizontal position to backwards and forwards. The actual possible amount of tilt totally exceeds that of vertical mast forklifts. There is a large range of available lifting attachments, and this ability to position makes them as effective as possible.
Nearly all telehandlers have the capability of tilting to a position that is actually parallel to the ground. Several units have rotating carriages as well. This enables the operator to adjust the lifting attachment radially. This translates to the load being capable of being tilted forwards and backwards, and side to side.
Telehandlers have a load capacity rather similar to that of the vertical mast unit. The unit's overall capacity will be dependent on things such as: boom angle and extension, whether the unit is lifting on outriggers or on rubber tires, and the amount of boom transaction deployed, if this is applicable. What's more, which lifting attachment plays a very main part, as does the wind, the grade the equipment is operating on and so on. All of these specifics could be changing regularly and this gives the operator a lot more information to think about.
Most of the time, telehandlers have some load charts available in order for the operator to reference so they can know the load capacity of a certain lift. Depending on the model in particular and the configuration of the boom, the load capacity can vary by thousands of pounds all together.
