In 1997, JCB reinvented the forklift. The result is the JCB Teletruk, a forklift truck with a telescopic boom instead of a vertical mast. Our unique design reduces overheads, saves time and space, and improves site safety. All of which can translate into huge financial savings.
Specifically, the Teletruk forklift provides unrestricted forward visibility (there’s no vertical mast), speeds up attachment changes, has increased fork carriage rotation and allows single-side lorry loading/unloading (due to it's superior reach).
A JCB Teletruk typically comes with alternative fuel options too – LPG or diesel choices are available on the TLT25 and TLT30 – as well as heavy lift option. 4X4 spec is also available on the TLT30 and TLT35.
In short, the Teletruk does everything a conventional forklift does, only better.
JCB Teletruck - Concept
The JCB Teletruk is a forklift designed to fulfil a mission; reduce overheads, save time and space, and improve site safety. When the savings in time and space are converted into financials the benefits can be huge.
JCB's conceptual decision back in 1996 was to develop a replacement to the conventional FLT's vertical mast. A telescopic boom is at the heart of several new dimensions in the way forklifts can add value.
Fork-tilt on masted forklifts is commonly governed by the degree of tilt permitted by the mast. This is typically restricted to what is required for loading unitised loads into warehouse racking.
The financial benefits will vary across the different industry sectors, and from site to site. Overall the JCB approach is to encourage those industry sectors which use forklifts to think not in terms of standard machine replacements but to drill down into identifying new financial modeling to validate the case for change.
JCB Teletruk - Industries
The JCB Teletruk can lend itself to a huge variety of industries, take a look at the 'Teletruk Telescope' Magazine to read examples of how the versatile TLT makes its mark in many sectors as a machine that can replace, complement or enhance a fleet of masted forklifts.
