How much does a telehandler in Houston cost?
Many factors influence the overall purchase price and operating cost of a telehandler. First and foremost, units with higher capacities tend to cost more than units with lower capacities. This is also true for models with unique features such as multiple steering modes or rotating cabs. Next, used telehandlers often cost less than new telehandlers depending on the model. As a result, it is impossible to outline a flat cost that applies to all telehandlers. For more information on telehandler pricing, or to inquire about the cost of a specific unit, contact our team!
What type of attachments are there for boom forklifts?
In addition to standard forks, telehandlers can be equipped with the following attachments:
This allows a telehandler to perform a variety of tasks on any job site, reducing the need for additional equipment. For assistance determining the correct attachments for your equipment and application, contact our team! Please note that certain attachments may require additional training or certification for use. For example, operators in a man basket must be trained in fall protection.
Do I need to complete training to operate a telehandler?
Absolutely. Telehandlers are versatile and powerful, but more complex to operate than a standard forklift. That’s why operators must complete a certified telehandler training program to receive an operating license. Lonestar Forklift is proud to offer a full selection of telehandler training courses that can fit any schedule or learning style. Whether you’re looking at our online training, in-class course, or blended program, you’ll be instructed to the same high standards. Training requirements may vary by jurisdiction.

Also known as boom forklifts, zoom booms, and telescopic forklifts, telehandlers are used in a variety of industries and applications. Telehandlers combine elements of a forklift with elements of a boom lift to create a unique and versatile piece of equipment. Instead of a traditional vertical mast, telehandlers feature forks attached to a telescopic boom. This allows operators to place loads vertically and horizontally as needed. Many telescopic handlers can also be outfitted with a variety of attachments to further increase their versatility. These include crane hooks, man baskets, clamps, buckets, and more. This allows a telehandler to perform the job of many different machines, making them an increasingly popular choice for many operations.
Though they are primarily used in construction applications, boom forklifts have become a popular choice for agriculture, forestry, and industrial applications as well. This is due to their exceptional traversal capabilities. Most telehandler models feature three distinct steering modes: 2-wheel, 4-wheel, and crab. As a result, they can safely traverse mud, uneven gravel, and other difficult terrain, even while handling a heavy load. Some telehandlers also feature full 360° rotation of the cab, allowing them to perform like a crane. When you’re looking for unmatched versatility and handling capabilities, a telehandler is an ideal choice.
The first telehandler was created in 1977 as a two-wheel drive machine combining elements of a forklift, crane, and backhoe. It was originally viewed as a “Frankenstein” machine but quickly gained popularity due to its versatility. Though more versatile than a conventional forklift, telehandlers presented issues with stability when lifting heavy loads to great heights. This prompted manufacturers to add outriggers to high-capacity models, allowing for safe heavy load handling. Manufacturers continue to innovate and enhance telehandlers, creating one of the most popular and widely-utilized machines in the modern market. For more information on telehandlers, reach out to our team today.
