Have you thought of telehandlers as an easier way to move heavy loads such as hay and silage bales and to reach into high places? Telehandlers can be used for these tasks and others such as loading feed for storage or moving it to troughs for livestock. You can also use telehandlers to lift other materials such as fencing equipment and transport them to where they are needed on the property. 

Telehandlers on farms is a new publication with over a hundred images and easy-to-read information. It will guide you through the safe use of a telehandler including attachments such as forks, buckets, grapples and crane jibs. It also includes sections on maintenance and any legal requirements.
