The Telehandler’s Ascent to Key Piece of Construction Equipment

Telehandlers Rise to New Challenges


Telehandlers were developed to act as a forklift in rough terrain—a specialized tool, for a specific application, and occasional use. It didn’t take long for operators to discover just how versatile telehandlers are and for them to outgrow their original application. Telehandlers are more adaptable than forklifts and more compact and maneuverable than cranes, which has led them to be used in all manner of construction projects, including general construction, roofing, framing, masonry, demolition, commercial, retail, road, and bridgework.

New Galaxy Giraffe ND Telehandler Tire Features Low Aspect Ratio

As of Jan 1, 2021, Alliance Tire Group and Alliance Tire Americas, Inc. changed their names to Yokohama Off-Highway Tires and Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America, Inc respectively. The Alliance, Galaxy and Primex brands and product names remain unchanged. Product information is available at www.yokohama-oht.com.

The new Galaxy Giraffe ND brings a sleek, low aspect ratio and deep, non-directional block tread pattern to Alliance Tire Americas Inc.'s telehandler tire line. The result is an extremely high-efficiency tire that delivers outstanding performance on and off paved job sites, says Ryan Lopes, National Product Manager, Materials Handling and Solid Tires for Alliance Tire Americas. 

"The Galaxy Giraffe ND is designed for 28-inch rims, though the low aspect ratio of the tire means that it easily replaces the 13.00-24 and 14.00-24 sizes we commonly see on telehandlers," he explains. "That low aspect ratio allows us to create a lower, sturdier sidewall for extra stability, and reduces the volume of the tire, which saves money for owners who foam-fill their telehandler tires.

Telehandlers: More Than Just An All-Terrain Forklift

How the Telehandler Has Become an Indispensable Piece of Equipment 

Over the years, the telehandler has emerged as a highly versatile machine that many farmers and construction companies now find indispensable. Developed by the Matbro company at Horley in Surrey, England, in the early 1980s, the telehandler was initially conceived as an articulated cross-country forklift for use in forestry applications. Despite the telehandler’s decades of wide use and popularity in Europe, the telehandler is finally making inroads into the U.S. agriculture and construction markets.

El Niño's Impact on California Contractors

El Niño and California Construction 

A warm patch of ocean has filled reservoirs and flooded cities this year...and now it's helping keep construction contractors busy across the Southwest. The warmer waters of the western Pacific Ocean flowing eastward and displacing the cooler surface water typically found in the eastern Pacific cause the weather occurrence known as El Niño. This weather event usually brings with it a shift in North America’s traditional weather patterns—most notably bringing wet weather to California, the Southwest, and the Southeast, while the North and Northeast typically experience a milder winter. Even though El Niño affects the entire country, the weather’s impact has been most felt by the people of California and Texas.
