- Checking and reporting faults
Telehandlers are a versatile machine that are commonly used on a variety of construction sites as they can lift heavy loads and have the reach to place the loads in places not easily accessible by a forklift. There are a number of sites around NQ where the Telehandler competency is useful, for example, solar farms and medium to large construction sites.
