Why Use a Rotating Telehandler?

Rotating or rotary telehandlers (ROTO) are a specialist piece of equipment which are considered a ‘must-have’ machine on most modern construction sites. But why is this? What benefits does this machine have over others, and why should you ensure you have one on hire? Here are a number of reasons why a rotational telehandler might be of use to you on-site.

Versatility:

These machines are incredibly versatile, and are capable of performing a number of tasks. The roles of telehandler, crane and access platform unit are all rolled into a single machine. There is no need for specialist tools for the purpose of hydraulic attachment coupling either, meaning that switching between functions is quick and reliable. With a number of essential functions in one machine through a single operator, rotating telehandlers can be efficient in saving you money, time and space on-site.

Precision:

Manitou’s rotating telehandlers have intuitive and ergonomic dual joystick controls which offer precision and comfort for the operator, meaning productivity is increased. The controls allow for a very high standard of accuracy at any height or angle as well.

Reach:

The Manitou rotating telehandlers in our fleet are capable of providing lift heights of up to 25m, reaching places that other machines would not. This includes a tight turning circle with exceptional manoeuvrability, meaning locations and terrains that might not be suitable for cranes can be tackled using this type of machine.

Safety:

Designed with safety at the forefront, the Manitou rotating telehandlers feature adjustable outriggers for total stability and an efficient distribution of load. They are built to handle a variety of terrains and tighter spaces as well, with all-around visibility to ensure the safety of the operator and other personnel on-site. The attachment recognition system E-reco lets you save time by specifying the proper work envelope and enhances security since it automatically detects any overload.
