Why Choose JLG Forklifts?

This company offers two telehandler lines (JLG and SkyTrak), sometimes referred to as telescopic forklifts. These forklifts distinguish themselves from their competitors by offering equipment with varying degrees of maneuverability and versatility, so that anyone can find a machine that suits their project’s needs.

JLG Telehandlers

This line currently includes 10 models: G5-18A, 742, 943, 1043, 1055, 1075, 1255, 1644 High Capacity Model, 1732 High Capacity Model, and 2733 High Capacity Model.

  • Maximum lift heights – 18 feet, 4 inches (G5-18A) to 55 feet (1055, 1255)
  • Outriggers up maximum lift heights – 43 feet (1043) to 75 feet (1075)
  • Maximum lift capacities – 5500 pounds (G5-18A) to 26,660 pounds (2733 High Capacity Model)

This line is incredibly versatile, as the wide range of attachments available can make these machines suitable for work in mining, oil and gas, wind, and construction industries.

SkyTrak Telehandlers

This line currently includes 7 models: 3013, 6036, 6042, 8042, 10042, 10054, and 12054.

  • Maximum lift heights – 13 feet, 1 inch (3013) to 53 feet, 2 inches (10054, 12054)
  • Outriggers up maximum lift heights – 42 feet (12054) to 53 feet, 2 inches (10054)
  • Maximum lift capacities – 2700 pounds (3013) to 12,000 pounds (12054)

Which model is best depends on the needs of your worksite. For example, if you need a machine with a high degree of maneuverability, the 3013—with its compact design and pneumatic tires—is worth exploring. For jobs requiring rough terrain forklifts, the 10054 or 12054 models could be the machine to add to your fleet.
