How to Purchase Used Telehandlers Resources!
Choosing The Best 8000 lb Telehandler
When purchasing a telehandler, you will have many models from different companies to choose from. While choosing one in particular might seem overwhelming, the right decision can be made easily if you look closely at each machine’s characteristics.
Working height is extremely important when it comes to choosing a telehandler, as this will dictate the height at which work can be performed with your machine. The maximum lift height for a Skytrak is approximately 42 feet. The maximum lift height for Genie is about 43 feet 10 inches. These heights are very similar but could mean all of the difference in the world depending entirely on a certain project. Measure the distance you will need to reach so that you can choose the right telehandler for the job. Trying to reach farther than the telehandler is capable of reaching could cause the machine to malfunction or topple over. Make sure the machine you choose is large enough to get the job done. If you know you will never need over 41 feet, however, then you should think about sticking to the smaller telehandler. You will want to get the smallest size that only slightly extends beyond your projected needs.
Another important measurement to consider is the reach. Find out what distance you will need your machine to reach before starting your search. The Genie will reach 28 feet 2 inches and the Skytrak will reach about 26 feet. Knowing how far you will be able to reach with these machines will help point you in the right direction as you will not be able to use a telehandler that will not reach the distance necessary to complete the project. Once again, safety is of utmost importance. You should not try to reach farther than specified with this machine, as it is dangerous. Make sure to get a machine that will meet your needs.
The extend speed for Skytrak is 14.5 seconds with a retraction speed of 14 seconds. The drawbar pull for Skytrak is 24,000 pounds. The operating weight with carriage and forks for a Skytrak telehandler is 26,230 pounds. Skytrak has a frame tilt of 10 degrees. The extend speed for the Genie is 14.9 seconds and the retract speed is also 14.9 seconds. While the Skytrak is a bit faster, the Genie has close to equal extend and retract times. Whether or not this difference has any relevance it up to the purchaser. All three machines can operate on rough terrain. Both the Genie and the Skytrak run on diesel fuel.
When it comes to Genie and Skytrak telehandlers, the most important part of choosing a telehandler is not the telehandler itself, but the job it will perform. When making a decision like this, you must make sure you choose a machine that will have the power, weight capacity, reach, and any other specifications you need to get your job done the right way. You should make as few compromises as possible so that your job will be done efficiently. If you need assistance finding the right telehandler, give us a call for more information.
