“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.
