Ever since 1959, Lull has been producing telehandlers. Their machinery have been made for load placement with their patented Stabil-Trak stability system. This particular system offers a lot more accurate placement capabilities. Lull telehandlers provide a huge range of optional attachments and these telehandlers could really help you complete your needs, while being efficient and safe at the worksite. If precision and accuracy are really important, leave it to a Lull telehandler to accomplish everything you require.
In order to make rough terrain forklifts as efficient as possible, numerous attachments have been designed and developed such as booms, winches, and rotating fork carriages, to allow the forklift to place materials more precisely. The articulating booms or booms come with 2 different extendible arms and are able to reach up and over structures so as to place loads on interior roof slope settings or in the center of upper floors. New products and attachments are being engineered and made all the time and will debut in the future.
With extra safety features becoming more prevalent, some improvements have been made. For example, load-reach management devices can automatically restrict the forklift's reach, based on the load being handled rather than relying on the operator. Pressure sensors are used to be able to know the weight of the load. This information is sent to a small electronic memory device that had all the load-reach limitations pre-programmed into it.
When the load is being placed into position, the memory will compare the extension of the boom and the angle of the boom with the safety limits. There is an important lock-up device or a warning system that prevents the operator from over-reaching and potentially causing the forklift to tip over or the boom to fail.
