The JLG G5-18A super compact telehandler features a 127-in. (322.5 cm) turning radius, enabling movement through crowded job sites and a stowed height of less than 76 in. (193 cm), making it ideal for work in confined or congested spaces and any application with overhead height restrictions. The machine also offers a variety of attachments for versatility in handling jobsite challenges.

Redesigned in 2013 for enhanced reliability and serviceability, the G5-18A features a maximum lift height up to 18 ft. (5.5 m), an extended outreach of 11 ft. (3.3 m), and a 5,500-lb. (2,495 kg) maximum lifting capacity. Operators also will appreciate the enhanced visibility over the engine side of the machine and comfortable cab, designed to reduce operator fatigue.

The G5-18A also offers savings through its Tier IV final Deutz engine, which provides higher levels of fuel efficiency and reduces the impact on the environment. In addition, it offers an optional reversing fan, which is a benefit in dusty environments, as it allows the operator to reverse the fan to “clean out” the radiator, according to the manufacturer.
