17m Telehandler

17m Telehandler


The 17 metre range is the latest and largest rigid based telehandler addition to the UK Forks fleet. With a multiple stage boom mechanism, and with the stabilisers extended, it can achieve a massive lift height to 16.7 metres with a 2500 kgs load capacity, without compromising manoeuvrability or safety.

The 17 metre range also offers a low boom line giving the operator greater visibility and confidence to move around site safely. An excellent choice for multi-storey projects, offering exceptional lift, reach and rough terrain capabilities.

With the recent changes in construction and housebuilding design, driven by PPG3, the 17 metre range is becoming one of the most versatile and manoeuvrable tools on site.
