Jlg G518 A Super Compact Telehandler

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, JLG Industries will display the G5-18A. The G5-18A is a super compact telehandler featuring a 127-inch turning radius, enabling movement through crowded jobsites and a stowed height of less than 76 in., making it ideal for work in confined or congested spaces, as well as parking garages or 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., an extended outreach of 11 ft., and a 5,500-pound maximum lifting capacity. Operators will also 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 powerful, Tier 4 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.
