    What Would You Want In A Telehandler?

    Ladies and Gents... Hypothetically Speaking...

    If you had the chance to power anything from your Telehandler, what would it be...?

    You can source your power from Hydraulics, Engine or Electric.

    So what yould you have?

    What exactly do you mean by "power anything from my telehandler " ? Power what, a tumble dryer, a muck grab, lawn mower, power harrow?

    Maybe with carefull practice and some super fast hydraulics he could flick it up in the air and it would land nicley in the chopper on the back

    all handlers break down regardless of make so maybe design on that can be repaired and serviced abit easier would be time well spend rather than attempting to give a handler more jobs to do?

    Just pick the bale up with the bucket, lift it up, then crowd right back and roll it down the boom into the chopper. Simples

    Exactly, Anything...

    Sorry, perhaps this should have been in the 1st post.

    I've seen some diggers recently, fitted with allsorts of attachments, a hydraulic hose reel which can power a jackhammer, air wrench, chainsaw, sthilsaw type attachments etc etc. Also, Electric attachment points to work a myriad of different things. Using the Engine's power to drive other things is not beyond the wit of man either, is it?

    Ok, these are fairly specialist bits of kit, for a specialist market, but it did get me thinking, if you could fit anything to your Telehandler, what would it be, and why?

    And I thought the idea of a telehandler was to make life easier, you struggle to see where the bale is for self loading off a tractor, let alone a multi-farmer besides contaminating the bale with whatever is on the yard at the time, clean straw equals low cell count, are you a theory farmer ???

    +1. But the good thing about the Manitou is you can open the back window and the door window to give a nice ( if a little dusty) through draft.

    Just bought a 23cft compessor pump to mount on old tank(still in good order)to be driven by hydraulic motor and the whole unit will be made to be picked up on toes with storage for 1" air gun and sockets for removing wheels that dont always go flat in the workshop.
    And yes I am fitting an uloader valveto keep the pressure under control.

    The hydraulic pipes not so tightly packed together they chafe and burst at the inopportune moments. Written just as it has happened for the second successive time I've used our merlo 32.6 on different parts of the machine.

    Or in the case of our manitou a air con pump that's doesn't break off the side of the engine leaving you air con less, welded it up once then it broke all the bolts off flush in engine block and now just suffer as its fuel tank off job to get them out.

    just a guess is it a MLA 627 or a series 1 628? if so the good news is its not a common problem, but it is on a MLA 628 series 2 onwards!
