Telehandler 360 Rotoslew Training

When selecting a telehandler for hire, a project’s unique requirements will direct what lift capacity and reach the machine should have. However, one limiting quality of most telehandlers is the boom’s ability to move only up and down. Luckily, manufacturers like Manitou now offer a new model called the rotating telehandler 360 that eliminates this limitation. These telehandlers (or rotos) are ideal for use on congested job sites where the work needs to be done at height. Go here

This is the first time a telehandler has been designed to access all angles of a space without moving the machine itself. This means that operators don’t have to leave the cab to change attachments or maneuver the equipment to access hard-to-reach areas. Moreover, these machines can be used in tight conditions as they are more compact than standard telehandlers and feature smaller turning circles. Additionally, most models have stabilisers that can be lowered instead of fully extended to get in and out of restricted spaces.

To learn more about this exciting new technology, we spoke to Tony Mills – BAM Construction Training’s CPCS telehandler tester with 29+ years’ experience in the construction plant industry. Tony specializes in CPCS crane and access machinery training and is responsible for endorsing the first range of Manitou rotary telehandlers in the UK.

BAM offers a 3 or 6 day foundation CPCS A77 Telehandler 360 slew training course. This covers the theory and practical tests to become a telehandler 360 slew operator.
