The Teletruk is the latest version of forklifts produced by JCB, a private-owned, family-run business (named after its founder “Joseph Cyril Bamford”) that is based in the United Kingdom. The Teletruk models range from a 2.5 – to 3.5 – ton lift capacity. The Teletruk can be availed in two- or four-wheel drive.
The Teletruk makes use of an engine that showcases a hydrostatic transimission that is coupled with a torque converter (fluid coupling turbine that transmits power from a driving device like an engine) response system. Another unique feature of the Teletruk is a light material bucket which gives the forklift to transform into a small loader.
As a telescopic forklift, the Teletruk is similar to a conventional forklift. However, rather than making use of a vertical mast in order to lift and raise a certain load, it is equipped with a telescopic boom which can reach both forwards and upwards further than a conventional forklift can. The Teletruk is basically a heavy-duty (also known as “off-road”) version of the standard forklift.
The Teletruk is designed to work in rough terrain applications. Such applications include mining, agriculture, construction, as well as warehouse operations. As a telescopic forklift, the Teletruk can work with other attachments like rotating and fixed carriages, truss jibs, buckets, muck grabs, grapples, winches, and lift tables – just to name a few.
The Teletruk can also be called as a “deep reach truck” as it can ultimately reach “double-deep”. It has the capability to place and retrieve pallets that are set one behind the other from one aisle position. The Teletruk is built to pick up and deposit two pallets into the racking, as compared to the standard version which can only move one pallet off the rack.
