On its stand at IMHX 2019 JCB will showcase models from the multi-award winning Teletruk range of telescopic lift trucks, including the newly launched JCB 30-19E – the first electric-powered machine in the Teletruk range.
The JCB Teletruk has revolutionised materials handling operations in builders merchants, ports, recycling centres and industrial facilities around the world since it was first unveiled in 1997.
With its iconic telescopic forward reach boom, the JCB Teletruk was developed as an alternative to the conventional lift truck, which, of course, has a front-mounted mast that raises and lowers loads only vertically.
The forward reach functionality makes the Teletruk the ideal choice of lift truck at sites where containers, curtainsided trailers, vans and other delivery vehicles have to be loaded and unloaded quickly, safely and efficiently.
When it comes to loading and unloading containers from within a building, the Teletruk offers superior performance to other types of materials handing equipment while, outside, the Teletruk can load or unload a curtainsided trailer in under 30 minutes and requires 30 per cent less space than conventional counterbalanced trucks to work in.
There are 11 different models in the JCB Teletruk range and the introduction of the new battery-powered version means that Teletruk technology can now be deployed both inside and outside the warehouse, distribution centre or factory facility to deliver the ultimate in materials handling versatility.
