How much does your telehandler weigh?

What’s the weight of your telehandler? This is a question that can be quite difficult to figure out, yet a vital one to know. The weight of your telehandler has a direct relationship with its respective lifting capacity. The higher the weight of your telehandler, the more you can lift. With that being said, the angle of which the boom of the telehandler is situated at can also affect the lift capacity. The lower the degree of your boom, the less you can lift. For example, if the boom is completely parallel with the ground, your telehandler can lift as little as 400lbs (180kg). If the angle of the boom is 60°, your telehandler could lift potentially 10,000lbs (4535kg), yet again, the lift capacity depends on the operation weight of your telehandler.
