Telehandlers: a part of agriculture

06 January 2023



Telehandlers are more frequently used in agriculture than before. Their versatility, reach, and load capacity make them exceptionally useful for daily tasks. Cleaning stables, moving hay bales, stacking logs and clearing fields becomes easy as can be with the correct attachment. That’s why telescopic handlers are indispensable assets in agriculture.

The perfect sidekick on and off the field

Tractors are undoubtedly the most important machines in agriculture. The tractor has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the 19th century. Nowadays, ploughing, cultivating the soil, and planting fields are done effortlessly with a tractor. However, certain other tasks on the farm are not as straightforward when using a tractor. That’s where the telehandler comes into play.

Need to stack straw or hay bales? No problem. An advantage of telehandlers is the increased reach over tractors. The boom typically has a reach of 7 to 10 m compared to the tractor’s maximum reach of 4,5 m. Grabbing and depositing material can be done further and higher. That’s one point to the telehandler!

The telehandler offers great flexibility. The weight of the load can be distributed by extending or retracting the boom. Because of this, a telehandler has a larger load capacity compared to a tractor. Telehandlers can handle loads up to 6000 kg, while a tractor maxes out at 2500 kg.

Agility, manoeuvrability and versatility

Telehandlers are more manageable to drive in tight spaces. There is a wide range of compact telehandlers that make manoeuvring a breeze, assisted by the possibility of 4-wheel steering. In addition, telehandlers get up to speed quickly, meaning they can cover ground in no time.

And that’s not even all. The action doesn’t only happen in the front. Attachments can also be mounted on the back, making it possible for telehandlers to fulfil tasks of tractors like ploughing the field. These diverse applications prove that the telehandler is a jack of all trades.

With our range, we can easily supply attachments for all popular makes of telehandlers.

It is crucial to keep telehandlers in excellent condition for them to excel at every task. General or periodic machine maintenance, such as an oil and filter change, should happen about every 500 working hours. Consumable parts, like brake pads and bushings, need to be replaced every 1000 to 2000 hours.

Keep an eye on the wear and tear of parts to avoid downtime. Need replacement parts? Let us help you out. At TVH, you can find a wide range of telehandler parts that can be delivered to your doorstep in no time.
