“The addition of a compact telehandler means that Skyjack is now positioned to compete in a whole new class of telehandlers,” said Barry Greenaway, product manager at Skyjack. “The SJ519 TH also redefines the compact market with its class-leading cab size.”

At its maximum reach of 11.25 feet (3.44 m,) the SJ519 TH can lift a rated load of 4,400 pounds (2,000 kg). Skyjack says all major service points are easily accessible.

“When we started the design phase for this product we knew we wanted to maintain similar features with our existing telehandlers,” Greenaway said. “It’s Skyjack’s consistency across products that adds to simplicity of service, and decreased downtime for our customers.”
