JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has expanded its offering of compact telehandlers with two new models. The JLG 619A and 723A will be sold for use in landscaping, construction and agricultural applications. The 619A provides nearly 6,000 lb. (2,721 kg) of capacity at the maximum reach height of 19 ft. (5.8 m), while the 723A allows nearly 7,000 lb. (3,175 kg) at a height of 23 ft. (7 m). Both models are equipped with all-wheel-steer.

“The compact dimensions of these machines provide the maneuverability necessary for loading or unloading mulch, transporting hay bales or moving pallets on a crowded job site,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG product parent for telehandlers. “Equipment operators in these applications will enjoy a spacious cab with a comfortable suspension seat and tilt steering, designed to optimize comfort and visibility.”

In addition to the compact size and premium cab, these models include a single joystick control design that combines smoother and more precise control with the speed 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 ability to utilize skid steer attachments, further increases the versatility of these models.

These models will complement the existing G5-18A creating a JLG 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.
