Telehandler Hire

At Rabbit & Dowling Plant Hire, we have various sizes of telehandler available to hire, from 4m to 17m. These incredibly versatile pieces of machinery, sometimes known as zoom booms or reach forklifts, can tackle many tasks across a building site, depending on the attachment added to the telehandler boom, and are more akin to a crane than a forklift.

The telehandlers we have available for hire are as follows:

4M JCB telehandlers

The compact JCB Loadall range offers the very highest levels of performance and productivity with world-beating build quality, unrivalled comfort and excellent manoeuvrability.

The 4m JCB 520-40 telehandler is 1.97m in height and 1.56m width.

6M, 10M, 14M and 17M Merlo telehandlers

These telehandlers are part of Merlo’s new range for the agricultural and construction sectors. The innovative, multi-functional equipment allows for ease of use, comfort and high levels of efficiency.

The 6m P27-6 telehandler handler is 1.86 m wide and 1.96 m in height.

The 10m P30-10 telehandler is 2.10m wide and 2.12m high, while the 14m P38.13 is 2.22m wide and 2.44 high and the 17m P40.17 Merlo telehandler is 2.42m wide and 2.55m high.

11M Manitou telehandler
