This is because it semi-automatically extends the telescopic boom when lifting and retracts it when lowering without the operator needing to control the telescopic function. This enables a smooth and quick manner of work.
  • The almost vertical lifting and lowering movement makes the telehandler with vls very stable because the load does not move into the overload range. Experienced operators can work even faster and safer with vls. Inexperienced operators are given valuable support in lifting and load work.
  • The vls (Vertical Lift System) can be applied to three different modes: In the bucket mode, the telescopic boom always automatically retracts within the upper and lower range, and in the upper range the telescopic boom will not automatically extend. This is suitable, for example, for loading work with bulk material. In the stacking mode, the telescopic boom does not automatically retract in the lower range, in the upper range the telescopic boom automatically extends, it is possible to lower the telescopic boom while simultaneously extending it. This is suitable, for example, for stacking work with pallets. In the manual mode, all movements of the loading system and the telescopic boom are operated independent of one another, and the lifting and lowering speed is automatically adjusted (load and angle dependent). This is suitable, for example, for thrust work.
