Regina Zoom Boom Ticket - Zoom Boom Training focuses on correctly training potential operators on variable reach forklifts. The training objectives include gaining the understanding of the machine's physics and to define the tasks of the operator. This course adheres to North American safety standards for lift trucks. Zoom boom training and certification is available at the company's location or at our site, provided there are a minimum number of trainees. Certification given upon successful completion is valid for three years.
A telescopic handler (also known as a telehandler) is similar in some ways to both a forklift and a crane. It is a versatile machinery made together with a telescopic boom which can lift upwards and extend forward. A variety of attachments can be fitted on the end of the boom, like for example pallet forks, bucket, lift table or muck grab. It is popular in industry and agriculture settings.
Telehandlers are most commonly utilized with the fork attachment to be able to transport loads. The units have the advantage that they could reach places inaccessible to standard forklifts. Telehandlers could remove palletized loads from inside a trailer and placing them on places which are high such as rooftops. For some applications, they can be more practical and efficient compared to a crane.
When lifting heavy loads, the telehandler could experience some instability. As the boom is extended too far with a load, the equipment would become more unsteady. Counterweights located at the back help, but do not solve the problem. The lifting capacity quickly decreases as the working radius increases. Several equipment come with front outriggers that extend the lifting capacity whilst the machine is stationary.
