Navy Telehandler Contract In Usa
It has been reported that allegedly the JLG Industries Inc. company has been contracted to provide telehandlers to the US Navy. Telehandlers will arguably assist the US Navy by providing them with equipment which is essential to carry out Navy duties with safety, performance and comfort of the utmost importance.
It has been claimed that MMV telehandlers feature the capacity to hold up to 11,000 pounds in weight. In addition MMV telehandlers from MMV feature a load moment indicator system which informs the operator of the capacity limit of the telehandler
Telehandlers are widely used in agriculture and industry in the US. Telehandlers offer a high level of versatility in that they are able to be used with a variety of attachments suited specifically to different tasks. A variety of attachments for the telehandler are available. These include buckets, pallet forks, muck grabs, as well as lift tables.
A major drawback of using a telehandler is that as the boom rises, the telehandler itself becomes increasingly unstable, and this means that the potential lifting capacity of the telehandler is reduced, as the height or length of the boom increases.
