Telehandlers (also known as teleporters, telescopic handlers, or boom lifts) are perfect for forklift applications that require lifting over variable height that typical forklifts wouldn't reach. Telehandlers combine aspects of cranes and forklifts in one machine. 


Typical features of a telehandler include a single articulating or telescopic boom that extends upwards and forward to increase versatility. The boom features an operator that can fit several attachments, such as forklifts and scissor lifts. 

Total Access Telehandlers can offer lift heights up to 18m and more. Our telehandlers can be used in construction, agriculture, manufacturing, and many other industries for pallet lifting applications, among other applications such as getting access to high areas/locations. 

Our Telehandlers are four wheel drive, three steering options and very smooth joystick controls. With an oscillating rear axle which assists four wheel drive traction. Our Merlo is a tall and robust Telehandler with flexibility that only slewing can provide. Below ground/under bridge EWP capability.

Advantages of hiring our Telehandlers:


Great loading height & reach

Telehandlers can lift loads to heights and lengths that are impossible to reach with typical forklifts. Boom handles can reach 50 feet or more depending on the type of telehandler.


There are many types of attachments available for telehandlers, from scoop buckets to forklifts. This makes telehandlers capable of just about any job site application thinkable. A telehandler can also lift several times more materials than a forklift or cherry picker.

On-road/off-road capabilities

Telehandlers can work on any road. Their four-wheel drive features make it possible for use on typical roads and in the roughest terrain i.e., in agriculture and construction sites.
