JLG launches new compact telehandler
JLG has launched a new compact telehandler - the G5-18A – aimed at construction, landscape and agricultural markets. The unit has a maximum lift of 5.5 metres, a 2,495kg rated lifting capacity with just under two tonne lift at its maximum height of 3.3 metres.
The machine has three steering modes including 4X4, four wheel crab and 2-wheel steering. The outside turning radius of 3.2 metres makes it ideal for confined or congested sites.

Brian Boeckman, JLG’s product manager for North American telehandlers, said: “We spent a great deal of time talking with construction, landscape and municipal professionals to ensure the G5-18A super compact telehandler was designed for top-of-the-line operator comfort. We also paid close attention to service needs by making the engine area easily accessible with standard maintenance intervals of 500 hours, which is twice as long as other compact telehandlers.”
Total weight is less than 5 tonnes.
The G5-18A is available with several attachments including a general purpose bucket, a light material bucket, a grapple bucket, various carriages and a crane hook. The G5-18A can even be configured to accommodate skid steer attachments.
