JLG Industries has completely redesigned its line of JLG brand telehandlers. The new models are designed to be more comfortable, more serviceable and to enhance operator confidence.
“This launch represents a quantum step forward in telehandler design and engineering,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries’ global product director for telehandlers. “We’ve re-thought every aspect of machine operation and service. We’ve used input from rental houses, fleet managers and business owners. The results are machines that exceed our customers’ expectations.”
The line includes:
- Model 642: 6,600-lb. capacity, 42-ft. reach
- Model 943: 9,000-lb. capacity, 43-ft. reach
- Model 1043: 10,000-lb. capacity, 43-ft. reach
- Model 1055: 10,000-lb. capacity, 55-ft. reach
- Model 1255: 12,000-lb. capacity, 55-ft. reach
A new cab layout and control panel reduce complexity and improve information delivery. Each model features a single joystick controller and a multifunction gauge package. The joystick includes declutch/transmission neutral and carriage tilt functions, as well as boom lift and telescope. The cab is spacious and engineered to deliver better visibility in all directions. Operator sight lines are further improved by the use of a single compensation and lift cylinder.
The single cylinder also reduces the number of parts to maintain, which can simplify maintenance. The external telescope cylinder is now mounted on top of the boom, making it less susceptible to damage and easier to service.
Other features include:
- Rear axle stabilization (RAS) system automatically switches the machine from a three-point stance to a four-point stance, improving handling in tough environments
- Dura Tough hoods made from a stout yet flexible polymer
- Cummins QSF 3.8L Tier 4 Final diesel engines
- Optional reverse sensing system, rearview camera with multipurpose display showing integrated electronic load charts, diagnostics and analyzer functions and ride control
- Expanded line of attachments includes a pipe grapple, material-handling arm, trash hopper, 3-ft. truss with winch and coupler-mounted lifting hook
