The JCB Teletruk is a forklift designed to fulfill a mission:

  • Reduce overheads
  • Save time and space
  • Improve site safety

When the savings in time and space are converted into financials the benefits can be huge.

JCB's design brief with the Teletruk was to develop a replacement to the conventional Fork-Lift Truck vertical mast. A telescopic boom is at the heart of several new dimensions in the way forklifts can add value. Thanks to the JCB Teletruk:

  • Flat bed and curtain-side trucks no longer have to be parked with 5 m of space either side for loading / unloading. This saves up to 50 % of yard loading area.
  • Single-side loading is faster as this unique forklift travels less. And safety factors are improved because forklift work zones can be separated completely from pedestrian areas. There are many possibilities depending on specific site requirements.
  • Because there is no vertical mast in front, the operator has an unrestricted view ahead, improving visibility, speed of operation and safety.

Conventional fork-tilt on masted forklifts is commonly governed by the degree of tilt permitted by the mast. This is typically restricted to what is required for loading into warehouse racking. The JCB Teletruk improves on this:

  • With no mast fork carriage rotation is increased to 111 degrees. This concept alone opens up a huge range of new possibilities in industrial FLTs.
  • JCB Teletruk Most importantly, attachments can be changed easily and in less than 30 seconds. This presents the potential for big financial savings on some sites as one Teletruk and several attachments can do the work of several other single-function machines. The financial values can be calculated not only in time savings but also in reduced fleet operation costs.
  • To achieve maximum use of attachments such as shovels and grabs particularly in such as recycling sectors four-wheel-drive is available. This is unique in the industrial counterbalance forklift world and allows the Teletruk to work in ground conditions which are unsuitable for conventional 2WD masted forklifts.
