In 1997 JCB swapped a telescopic boom for the usual vertical mast and the Teletruk was born, and Southwest JCB offers JCB’s full line of Teletrucks. When you’re in the market for a forklift, Southwest JCB’s Teletruk is the answer. The Teletruk is one of the most versatile of the JCB construction vehicles, able to move palletized loads, heavy objects and loose materials and place them in hard-to-reach areas. The telescoping arm on the Teletruk is one of the secrets to its success, allowing it to reach both sides of a trailer without having to drive around. This saves space in a shipping yard, as well as time and money.
At the same time, the mighty Teletruk is small enough to drive into a shipping container to remove cargo. The end of the telescoping arm also has a tilt function, allowing operators to right tipped cargo, lift unwieldy objects such as cars in a scrap metal yard without fear of lurching or dropping them, or with a grapple, to reach out and pick up objects at an angle when necessary. It’s an indispensable piece of heavy equipment for business owners in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico and Colorado. Once you operate a Teletruk, you’ll never be able to go back to an ordinary forklift again.
Depending on your application, the versatile JCB Teletruk can offer many of the benefits of up to four different machines. Not only does it do the work of a conventional masted forklift, but it combines many of the capabilities a skid steer loader, compact telescopic handler, rough terrain forklift and compact wheel loader. In short, the Teletruk does everything a conventional forklift does, and more. Visit our showroom to see the variety of teletruks available.
