A versatile selection of telehandlers from top suppliers to offer better lift and place solutions to your customers.
Reaching new heights
JLG Industries has introduced the newest model to its popular line of telescopic handlers. The JLG 1075 was developed as a result of customer input, requesting a 10,000-pound class telehandler with greater height and reach. The new model features a 75-foot boom that can lift up to eight storeys and offers a 60-foot reach. The high lift and reach of the 1075 make it ideal for use in the film, building construction, steel erection, demolition and renovation industries. Telehandlers are often used to place loads on top of buildings, such as setting HVAC units into place on rooftops. With its longer boom length, the 1075 can achieve precision placement further onto a building, effectively doubling the reach of a telehandler with a 55-foot boom. The new 1075 telehandler comes standard with JLG’s longitudinal stability indication as well as a two-way right-side view camera for improved visibility and operator confidence during operation. JLG designed the 1075 to have the advantages of a crane without its associated high rental cost and cumbersome assembly requirements. Optional technologies include SmartLoad and a remote-controlled boom, which can be used by an operator to place material at height from outside the cab. The remote control can eliminate the need for two people – one in the cab and one at the location where the material is being placed – for improved efficiency on the job. Versatility is key when it comes to telehandlers and the 1075 follows this rule. The unit accepts a wide range of standard telehandler attachments, as well as a number of JLG specialty attachments, including its new sheet material handler for precision placement.
Stronger than before
Genie has introduced the newest addition to its telehandler lineup, the Genie GTH-1056 telehandler. Extensively field tested to validate performance, the GTH-1056 has been purposefully designed to lower total cost of ownership by 10 percent while delivering 20 percent more lift capacity at max height in a machine with a 30 percent stronger design. The GTH-1056 builds on popular features found on the proven GTH-636 and GTH-846 models, including a side-mounted engine and stronger boom design, to deliver a rugged, reliable telescopic handler with a 10,000 pounds capacity. In addition to being built for performance, the GTH-1056 also was designed for durability. Able to lift 5,000 pounds at maximum height of 56 feet seven inches, and 3,000 pounds at maximum reach of 42 feet, the GTH-1056 boasts a 30 percent stronger boom and chassis compared to previous models. The boom with mid-pivot point uses a single lift cylinder. Owners can choose from three powertrain options to spec the GTH-1056 to the particular needs of their organization. In addition to the 120 horsepower Deutz engine with four-speed powershift transmission, Genie also offers a 74 horsepower Deutz Tier 4f engine with three-speed powershift transmission or with Continuously Variable Transmission. For rental applications, the 74-horsepower, DEF-free engine option is a low-maintenance solution. CVT delivers performance on par with the 120-horsepower engine, but with a lower purchase cost and better fuel efficiency. It delivers drawbar pull and drive speed performance that is similar to the 120-horsepower engine. To ensure the new GTH-1056 delivers on performance while reducing the time and expense of maintenance, the lower horsepower engine does not require diesel exhaust fluid. The 120 horsepower powershift, which delivers 23,110 pounds of drawbar and 18 miles per hour drive speed, is best for customers with dedicated operators working in applications where maximum power and speed is needed every day. Further supporting rough-terrain operations while lowering total cost of ownership, Genie introduces its new long-life Enduro A/T tires, a hybrid, all-terrain tread design exclusive to Genie. The hybrid tread pattern on the tires combines the best characteristics of rock lug tires and conventional rough terrain tires. A wide centre bar delivers better wear on hard surfaces and self-cleaning outer lugs power through soft, muddy ground without becoming clogged. Enduro A/T tires also provide one-third longer wear before replacement is needed, reducing ownership costs. The Enduro A/T tires come standard on the GTH-1056. The GTH-1056 delivers power to the wheels through limited slip differential on both the front and rear axles, which automatically shifts torque to wheels that are slipping.
The Snorkel SR5719E is a fully electric lithium-ion battery-powered compact rough terrain telehandler. Delivering a maximum lift capacity of 2,600 kilograms, a maximum lift height of up to 5.79 metres, and a forward reach of up to 3.1 metres, the Snorkel SR5719E is completely zero-emission. Measuring just 1.89 metres wide, the SR5719E is highly manoeuvrable and suitable for indoor use, or outdoors in low-emission zones, such as city centers. Equipped with a highly ergonomic fully enclosed cab, or optional open cab, with adjustable steering column and suspension seat, the SR5719E delivers maximum operator comfort. An intuitive multi-function colour LCD screen provides immediate display of all key parameters and integrated diagnostics and proportional joystick controls enable precise handling of loads. Powered by 80V 32-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion batteries, the SR5719E can perform continuously between charges for up to six hours depending on jobsite conditions. The on-board single-phase charger provides a full charge overnight, while off-board charger options are available for fast-charging capabilities. The SR5719E can also be top-up charged throughout the day. The SR5719E reduces operating costs by up to 60 percent over the diesel equivalent, while also significantly reducing noise. Built to handle rough terrain, the SR5719E has full-time four-wheel drive and an oscillating axle and benefits from four-wheel steering with three steering modes – front, crab and coordinated. The lithium-ion batteries are proven to operate in temperatures ranging from minus-20 to 45C, and are backed by a 2,000 charging cycles or two-year, whichever comes first, lithium-ion battery warranty. Batteries that reach the end of their life are to be returned to Snorkel for recycling. Snorkel telehandlers, including the SR5719E are available from Ahern Canada.
Pettibone has introduced the Extendo 1056X telehandler to its X-Series lineup, providing a 10,000-pound-capacity machine capable of reaching lift heights of 56 feet. The new Extendo builds upon Pettibone’s tradition of rugged design while offering numerous performance improvements for contractors and rental users working in masonry, construction and other material handling applications. The Extendo 1056X comes standard with a 74-horsepower Cummins QSF 3.8 Tier 4 Final diesel engine that features a DOC muffler and requires no diesel exhaust fluid. The machine is also the first X-Series model to offer an optional Deutz 74-horsepower Tier 4 Final engine. A 117-horsepower Cummins engine option is available as well. Mounted on a side pod, the engine offers easy service access while allowing curbside visibility and ground clearance of 18 inches. Featuring a four-section boom, the 1056X delivers maximum lift capacity of 10,000 pounds, maximum forward reach of 40 feet, and maximum lift height of 56 feet. The boom structure’s formed plates offer greater strength while reducing weight. Fastener-less wear pads also simplify service, and heavy-duty extension chains help ensure stable boom functions. Cylinder cushioning has been introduced to dampen the end of strokes to avoid the wear-and-tear of hard, jarring stops, while also helping prevent the potential spilling of a load. The telehandler also uses a single-lift cylinder that improves operator sight lines and has twin non-tensioned hydraulic lines for tilt and auxiliary plumbing. A pintle hitch mount adds versatility for towing. Tight steer angle capability provides an efficient turning radius of 14 feet, four inches. The Dana VDT12000 Powershift transmission offers three speeds, forward and reverse. The Extendo operator cab maintains Pettibone’s ergonomic seat, pedal, joystick and steering wheel positions, while optimizing line of sight in all directions. A new analog and LCD gauge cluster comes standard. An optional seven-inch digital display with integrated back-up camera is also available. The cab also offers enhanced climate control, flat bolt-in glass, split door design, openable rear window, USB accessory plug, lockable storage under the seat, and water-resistant components for easy interior washdown. All-steel fuel and hydraulic tanks are built to resist damage.
