The JLG Model G5-19A has a lifting height up to 19 ft. (5.8 m) and a forward reach of 10 ft. 4 in. (3.1 m). Features include a cab design for improved operator vision and 140-degree carriage rotation.

A mechanical quick switch enables fast changes from forks to other attachments such as the general-purpose bucket, a digging bucket and a truss boom.

The telehandler is powered by a 100-hp (74.7 kW) Deutz diesel engine, coupled with four-wheel drive, providing 45 percent gradeability.

The telehandler has compact dimensions and three steering modes: four-wheel steering can be used for circle steer, crab steer, or the machine can be steered with the front wheel steering.
