Telehandlers can perform a wide range of tasks in various industries.

Poised to higher grow

The demand for telehandlers has been increasing steadily, especially from the infrastructure construction and mining segments over the coming years.

In light of the plans of infrastructure creation and reforms in mining, what opportunities do you foresee for construction equipment? Opportunities for construction equipment like telehandlers in the mining industry are from the very first day of the mining – from mine formation/construction/ infrastructure maintenance/operational duties and up to mining machinery maintenance. The different attachments make the difference. One single machine (telehandler with some common mining attachments like fork, basket, tyre handler hook, etc.) can replace and reduce the workshop gathering of different machines for different jobs.

Companies all over the world are turning to digital integration to increase efficiency in the mining process.
