What is the Difference Between Cranes and Telehandlers?

Carnes vs. Telehandlers

At Above All Equipment Sales, we specialize in aerial lifts like scissor lift, boom lifts, and telehandlers. A common question we are asked is why we do not sell cranes. Many people who are not in the industry might think that a crane and a telehandler are the same, but they are actually very different in many ways.

About Cranes

Cranes are a very different type of machine than a telehandler. They require different inspections, they are much more expensive, and you have to have more certification to operate a crane.

If you are looking for a smaller crane, a telehandler can provide you with the same height and reach that you need. Not only do you not have to have the extensive crane operator certifications, but the machine is more affordable.

Check out our telehandler inventory to see if you can save yourself time and money by buying a telehandler and not a crane.
