The tractor is the essential farm machine. But the telehandler is an ever increasing tool that many farmers are adding to their sheds. Here are the best telehandlers we've reviewed over the years.

Merlo Turbo Farmer 42.7 CS 140 telehandler

MERLO TURBO FARMER 42.7 CS 140 TELEHANDLER review

Brent Lilley gives his thoughts on the Merlo Turbo Farmer 42.7 CS 140 telehandler. Designed for use on farms, we set it up with a bucket grab and carried out some work with straw bales in a stubble field to assess how the machine performed.  

The hydrostatic variable transmission with smooth acceleration to top speed, boom, and importantly cab suspension offer a comfort level for the driver that is second to none in the telehandler market.

 

Manitou MLT 737-130 PS+ ELITE telehandler

MANITOU MLT 737-130 PS+ review

The Manitou 737-130 PS+ Elite telehandler was labelled a great high-end machine that offers a lot to those intending to spend a serious amount of time in a telehandler by reviewer Brent Lilley.

Spec'd with a reliable four-cylinder Deutz engine that pushes out 129hp, the 737-130 PS+ elite is a quality machine. Read why we thought it was good!

 

JCB 541-70 Agri Loadall telehandler

JCB 541-70 AGRI LOADALL TELEHANDLER review

JCB is proudly British and has been building agricultural machines for almost 70 years.

It’s also worth noting that JCB makes all its own chassis, engines, transmissions and axles, cabs and booms in-house. So, its the JCB 541-70 the telehandler for you?

 

Dieci Cotton Pro 70.10 telehandler

DIECI COTTON PRO 70.10 TELEHANDLER review

The Dieci Cotton Pro 70.10 telehanlder we tested was being used at a cotton gin in rural New South Wales. As the name suggests, the 70.10 has a seven-tonne lift capacity and a 10-metre maximum reach (9.5m really).

A no-fuss machine, it boasts a four-cylinder Tier 3 FPT engine - read our thoughts on the machine here.

 

Faresin FH7.30C Agri PTO telehandler

FARESIN FH7.30C AGRI PTO TELEHANDLER review

The Faresin FH7.30C is designed to be a simple yet versatile farm machine fitted with a 130hp Iveco turbo-diesel engine.

The Faresin has a refreshing simplicity about it that should see it suited to the varied unforgiving roles it is likely to be found in.

 

Palazzani PT 192 telehandler

PALAZZANI PT 192 TELESCOPIC LOADER review

Taller than a tele and with a much higher centre of gravity, the Palazzani PT 192 is a mixture between a wheel loader and a traditional telehandler.
