Mustang has added the option of radio remote control to its telehandler models 742, 944 and 1155. With the radio remote the boom can be raised, lowered, extended and retracted. The operator can also shut down or start up the engine with the remote. This allows workers on the platform to maneuver themselves without the need for a second person in the cab. Operators can also leave the cab to find a place where visibility is better or even go into a building when directing and placing loads. The radio remote device uses frequency-hopping-spread-spectrum technology developed for military applications to eliminate the risk of interference.
