The Telehandler is versatile machine predominantly used to move and lift materials around building sites. This makes them perfect for building and construction sites and farms, where they will increase efficiencyby reducing labour requirements.
This machine is unbeatable for manoeuvrability; it has an extremely tight turning circle and three different steering modes making it possible to position the machine accurately for best reach. Steering modes include: Front or Two Wheel Steer, Round or Four Wheel Steer and Crab Steer.
Our telehandlers are powered by a four cylinder Deutz turbo-charged diesel engine, perfectly suited for driving the machine in all conditions. Additional stabilisation can be added using optional outriggers which also significantly increase the load capacity at maximum reach.
Adding to this machines versatility; fork, bucket and crane extensions are also available

March saw the final round of the Southern Midget Series
at Ruapuna Speedway.
Finishing 2nd in heat 1, and 3rd in heat 2. A front row start for the 15 lap feature race put the team in great position. Unfortunately a mechanical fault caused a last place finish. However, on points the team finished the series 1st by half a point!
Well done Glen and the Accessman Racing team!!! Rest well and we look forward to seeing you all back out there next season.

Glossary of common EWP (Elevated Work Platform) terms.

Anchor/Anchorage Point. A designated strong point for the attachment of the safety harness. Bleed Down Valve (emergency decent valve). A valve in the hydraulic system that allows oil in the ram or cylinder to escape under control back to the oil tank, and in turn allowing the boom or scissor to be lowered in an emergency. Deadman Pedal / Switch. Safety device to prevent accidental activation of controls. Emergency Stop. A button (s) which when pressed stops all operation of the machine in the case of emergency. Generally these are large red button located at both upper and lower controls. Lanyard. The line used to connect the safety harness to the approved anchorage points. Motion Alarm. Sounds a warning to personnel that the machine is moving. Sometimes in association with a flashing light. Outrigger / Stabilizer.
