JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, introduced its G15-44A telehandler — the largest telehandler in the JLG line.

Designed for the North American market, the JLG G15-44A has a 15,000-lb. (6,804 kg) capacity and several distinctions among comparable heavy-duty telehandlers, including:

  • 31-ft. (9.4 m) horizontal reach
  • 18-in. (45.7 cm) ground clearance
  • 20-mph maximum travel speed
  • 61-second boom cycle time

The machine also boasts a tight outside turning radius and a low gross vehicle weight, so it is agile and productive on the job site. It is powered by a 130-hp Tier IVi Cummins 4.5L diesel engine.

“This machine is strong throughout the entire load chart,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries’ global product director of telehandlers. “At the end of the day, features only matter if the machine is on the job site and being productive. The JLG G15-44A will deliver unwavering reliability, so rental houses can maximize their ROI.”
