Marsh Plant Hire Telescopic Handlers
The telescopic handler, or telehandler as it is commonly known was originally pioneered by the Matbro company in Horley, UK. Since this time several other manufacturers including JCB, Manitou, Bobcat, CAT and Merlo have developed telehandlers for a wide range of applications, including agriculture and construction.
Prehaps the most iconic and widely recognised of these is the JCB telehandler. The first loadall was a two-wheel-drive machine and enabled massively increased versatility to contractors who had previously had to make use of cranes, rough terrain forklifts and backhoe- loaders. The telehandler combined many of these pieces of equipment into one adaptable machine saving contractors time and money.
