Two new compact telehandlersfrom JLG
By Maria Hadlow07 April 2009
JLG has expanded its range of compact telehandler to include two new models. The JLG 619A and 723A. The machines are suitable for use in construction, landscaping and agricultural applications.
The 619A can lift nearly 2727 kg (6000 lb) to the maximum reach height of 5.8 m (19 ft), while the 723A lifts around 3181 kg (7000 lb) to a height of 7 m (23 ft); both models have all-wheel-steer.
Brian Boeckman, JLG Product Parent for Telehandlers said, "The compact dimensions of these machines provide the manouvrability necessary for loading or unloading mulch, transporting hay bales or moving pallets on a crowded jobsite. Equipment operators in these applications will enjoy a spacious cab with a comfortable suspension seat and tilt steering, designed to optimise comfort and visibility."
In addition to the compact size and ergonomic cab, the new models have a single joystick control that combines smoother and more precise control with the speed that operators need for peak performance when picking or placing loads. The controls feature a standard lift/loader mode feature that allows the operator to switch the primary function of the x-axis" from controlling the telescopic function of the boom to controlling the tilt or dump function of the attachment. This feature combined with a variety of available attachments and the capacity to use skid steer attachments, increases versatility.
These models will complement the existing G5-18A so that JLG now has a branded line-up of three compact telehandlers and eleven construction models. With the launch of these models, JLG will discontinue the G5-19A and G6-23A.
