JCB Teletruk vs JCB Rough Terrain Forklift

JCB Teletruks

Also known as telescopic forklifts, JCB Teletruks transform forklift capabilities. This range allows for efficient material handling in confined spaces, maximising time and cost efficiency.


JCB Rough Terrain Forklifts (RTFLs)

JCB RTFLs excel in off-road settings such as yards and forestry where standard forklifts cannot operate efficiently. They are designed for high mobility, ease of use, and outstanding productivity in rough terrain areas.


Why Choose a JCB Teletruk?

JCB Teletruks are used in various industries such as construction, agriculture, logistics, and recycling. They offer the capabilities of four different machines in one: a skid steer loader, compact telescopic handler, rough terrain forklift, and compact wheel loader.

Increased Versatility

·       Telescopic Boom: The telescopic boom provides greater reach than a standard forklift, allowing the Teletruk to access hard-to-reach areas.

·       Attachment Variety: The Teletruk range can adapt to various tasks with different attachments, enabling it to lift, load, carry, and handle all kinds of material.


Enhanced Safety

·       Single-Side Loading: Teletruks can load and unload from one side, reducing the need to manoeuvre around a load and minimising accident risks.

·       Improved Visibility: The forward-mounted cab and telescopic boom provide excellent visibility, enhancing safety and precision during operations.


Space Efficiency

·       Compact Design: Smaller than traditional forklifts, Teletruks work efficiently in confined spaces such as narrow warehouse aisles or crowded construction sites.

·       Manoeuvrability: The compact dimensions enhance manoeuvrability, allowing easy navigation through tight spaces.
