Tele-Boom turns your skidsteer loader into a compact, high-performance crane. With its growing arsenal of attachments, it’s becoming the “must have” add-on tool for construction, arboreal and farm use.
- Easily lifts and places trusses, shingles, hay bales & more
- Reaches from 8′ 6″ to 20′
- Requires only one hydraulic outlet
- Fits most popular skidsteer loaders
Work smarter with these customized add-on tools:
- Pallet Carrier – Transport loads of shingles, tools and miscellaneous items to your work site and your workers.
- Storage Bin with Adjustable Legs – Positions and holds tools where workers need them.
- Sheet Carrier – Easily, quickly and safely lifts and moves standard-sized plywood, plasterboard and other cumbersome materials.
Standard Equipment: End hook, two – 2″ X 48″ tie-rod cylinders, hydraulic hoses with standard ½” NPT threads. (Tele-boom normally comes totally assembled except hydraulic couplers and hoses for connecting to skidsteer. Hoses ARE INCLUDE when ordering from Equipmentland. You WILL need to provide couplers.
Length: Retracts to 8′ 6″ and extends to 20′. Extends to 30′ in combination with vertical lift of machine.
Hydraulic requirements:4 GPM at 600 PSI.
Lifting capacity: Depends on extension angle, length and skidsteer model
Operating the Tele-Boom:
The Tele-Boom’s retracted length is 8 feet 6 inches and extends 20 feet. The Tele-Boom will extend four feet manually and eight feet with the two 48-inch hydraulic cylinders. The total vertical lifting height varies with machines, but is approximately 30 feet on the majority of machines. The amount of liftability depends greatly on the angle and length of extension. For example, a much heavier amount can be lifted in a near “straight up” extension mode (retracting the boom all the way down and then lifting straight up), than when extended horizontally “out” from the loader. As with any machinery use, extreme care must be taken to assure safety.
The proper way to lift a load is to first test the load at the desired length to see if the loader is stable. As one tilts the boom upward you are effectively shortening the tipping amount and approximating the lifting capacity of the loader. EXTREME CAUTION must be taken as the boom is extended. A small movement of the loader will create a greater movement at the end of the boom. The ground should be relatively free of obstructions and any foreign materials that would cause excessive movement on the end of the boom.
The Tele-Boom should always be retracted and lowered to the ground before the operator leaves the machine.
“Safety is the Operator’s responsibility!”
The Sheyenne Tele-Boom is designed to give maximum safety; but no machine design can prevent operator error or carelessness.
The use of this extremely efficient and maneuverable Tele-Boom requires a qualified operator who understands the working capabilities of both the skid steer and the TeleBoom.
Safe operation needs a qualified operator!!
– Check that the Quick-Tach levers are in the locked position and the wedges are fully engaged into the holes
of the Tele-Boom.
– DO NOT permit personnel to be in the work area when operating the skid steer and Tele-Boom.
– DO NOT make any adjustments or repairs on the Tele-Boom while the skid steer engine is running.
– When learning to operate the Tele-Boom, do it at a slow rate in an area clear of bystanders.
– DO NOT operate the Tele-Boom near powerlines. Give wide clearence to ALL utility lines.
– DO NOT go near hydraulic leaks. Always turn off engine before repairing hydraulic hoses.
– Be aware of work area conditions. ie., excessive slope, obstructions, holes, bumps etc.
– Know the weight of the materials being handled. Avoid exceeding the Rated Operating Capacity of the skid steer and the Tele-Boom model. Ask your dealer for the lifting graph on load limits and TeleBoom stress calculations.
The Tele-Boom is designed to fit on most quick-tach skid steer loaders and comes fully assembled except for the hoses to the skid steer and a set of couplers. *These are not provided because each skid steer has different
placements and types of hydraulic hookups.
1.) Two (2) pieces of one-half inch ( ½”) by approximately 30 inches long hydraulic hose with one-half inch
(1/2”) NPT fittings on both ends. (Hose should be rated at 2500 psi or higher and length may vary
dependent on skid steer model.)
2.) One (1) piece “Male” coupler, type depending on skid steer.
3.) One (1) piece “Female” coupler, type depending on skid steer.
Assemble couplers to each hose using thread sealing compound.
Assemble each hose assembly from above into the fittings on the Tele-Boom using thread sealing compound.
Allow to dry thoroughly before testing for leaks.
Installing The Tele-Boom: (brief summary)
Always inspect the Quick-Tach and Tele-Boom mount before installation.
Enter the loader.
With the operator in the seat and appropriate safety restraints in place, start the engine.
Raise the lift arms slightly and tilt the skid steer mounting plate forward.
Drive the loader forward until the top edge of the skid steer mounting plate is completely under the top flange of
the Tele-Boom. Be sure the Quick-Tach levers do not hit the Tele-Boom.
Tilt the skid steer mounting plate backward until the Tele-Boom is slightly off the ground.
Stop the engine and exit the loader.
Push down on the Quick-Tach levers until they are fully engaged in the locked position and wedges are fully extended through the mounting frame holes.
The Tele-Boom’s hydraulic requirements are four (4) gallons per minute at 600 PSI.
To Connect: Relieve hydraulic pressure. Remove any dirt or debris from the surface of both the male and female couplers, and from the outside diameter of the male coupler. Visually check the couplers for corroding, cracking, damage, or excessive wear. If any of these conditions exist, the coupler(s) must be replaced.
Install the male coupler into the female coupler and vice versa.
To Disconnect: Relieve hydraulic pressure. Rotate the ball release sleeve so that the grooves are aligned with the
pins in the female coupler. Push the couplers together to relieve any resistance on the sleeve.
