JLG Super Compact Telehandler
February 27, 2008

JLG Industries offers the JLG Model G5-18A super compact telehandler with a 1.0 cubic yard bucket . The G5-18A compact telehandler combines operator comfort and machine maneuverability with lift capacity and reach to create a versatile and powerful compact telehandler. The G5-18A boasts a 5,500-pound maximum lifting capacity and 1,850-pound capacity at the fully extended reach of almost 11 feet; the best capacity in the compact telehandler class. The machine comes standard with three operator-selectable steering modes including 4-wheel circle, 4-wheel crab and 2-wheel steering. The 126-inch turning radius makes it a top choice for confined or congested work areas. The G5-18A’s 18-foot maximum boom height and almost 11 feet of reach allows the operator to access hard to reach areas. The compact dimensions of the machine, 144.2-inches long by 71.5-inches wide by 75.6-inches high, make it a great choice in difficult to maneuver work sites such as parking garages and multistory construction. At a gross vehicle weight of under 11,000 pounds, the G5-18A can be lifted by a crane at most job sites for use on higher-level floors.
