Zoom Boom Ticket Grande Prairie - Zoom Boom Training is designed to train operators on variable reach forklifts. The objectives of the training are to impart an understanding of the physics of the machinery, and to outline the operator's tasks. This course abides by North American safety standards for lift trucks. Zoom boom training and certification is obtainable at our site or at the company's location, provided there are a minimum number of trainees. Certification received upon successfully finishing it is good for three years.
A telescopic handler (likewise referred to as a telehandler) is similar in some ways to both a forklift and a crane. It is a helpful equipment made together with a telescopic boom that could lift upwards and extend forward. A variety of attachments could be fitted on the end of the boom, like for example bucket, pallet forks, lift table or muck grab. It is popular in industry and agriculture settings.
Telehandlers are most commonly used with the fork attachment to be able to transport loads. The units have the advantage that they could reach places not accessible to standard forklifts. Telehandlers could remove loads which are palletized from within a trailer and placing them on high places like rooftops. For certain applications, they can be more practical and efficient compared to a crane.
The disadvantage of the telehandler is its instability when lifting loads that are heavier. As the boom extends with a load, the unit becomes more and more unsteady. Counterweights in the rear help, but do not solve the problem. When the working radius increases, the lifting capacity quickly decreases. Some machinery come with front outriggers which extend the lifting capacity when the equipment is stationary.
