A forklift is a powered industrial truck used to lift and transport materials. The modern forklift was developed in the 1920s by various companies. The forklift has since become an indispensable piece of equipment in manufacturing and warehousing operations.
A telescopic handler, or telehandler, is a machine widely used in agriculture and industry. It is similar in appearance and function to a forklift but is more a crane than forklift, with the increased versatility of a single telescopic boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or lift table.
