A Telescopic handler, also known as a telehandlers, boom, reach scissor, or telescoping boom, is an industrial machine used in manufacturing and agriculture. These machines are fitted with a telescoping boom or a vertical mast. This type of machine is very useful for tasks such as measuring quantities of grain or other products to be stored.

Telehandlers are mainly used to move soil, liquid or other loads over difficult terrain. They are usually fitted on a standard size fork truck. The attachment can be manual or automatic and is operated either electrically or hydraulically. Usually, telehandlers are mounted on tracks for easy transportation of heavy or difficult-to-carry loads. The attachment can also be fitted on a flatbed truck.
