The most common upgrades to these pieces of equipment are foam filled tires (prevents costly downtime due to tire punctures), and a side-tilt carriage, which allows the operator to land a load if the placement of the load requires a slight side-to-side adjustment. An enclosed cab with heat can also be added to these telehandlers for use in colder climates.
A variety of forklift attachments can be purchased separately for these machines. The most common attachments are: work platforms, buckets in various sizes, truss booms, and jibs.
