JLG Adds 10,000-Pound Telehandler to Product Line

JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., has added the G10-43A telehandler to its product line. The machine is one of nine JLG-brand telehandler models developed for commercial and residential construction applications, including steel erection and framing.

“With the additional capacity and a full range of common JLG family attachments, the new G10-43A will provide superior performance in a wide variety of picking and placing applications,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG product parent for telehandlers. “Operators will enjoy the same spacious, enhanced-visibility cab, and comfortable operator environment available on existing G-Series telehandlers.”

JLG’s newest addition features a maximum lift capacity of 10,000 pounds and a 7,000-pound capacity at its 43-foot maximum lift height. With outriggers down, the G10-43A can lift 2,700 pounds at its maximum forward reach of 30’6”. The unit incorporates 10° frame leveling, outriggers as standard, trunnion-mounted planetary 55° steer axles, and inboard wet disc brakes on the front and rear axles. Parking brakes are wet disc spring-applied hydraulic release on the front axle.

A 99-hp John Deere 4045TF160 four-cylinder diesel engine powers the unit. The powershift transmission features four forward and three reverse speeds and full-time four-wheel drive. Power steering with manual backup is standard, and the operator can select four-wheel circle, four-wheel crab, and two-wheel front steering.

In the cab, the pilot-operated controls are grouped together for operator comfort and convenience. Boom lift and telescope functions are located on a single joystick, and the right-hand lever controls tilt and sway. Instruments in the cab include volt meter, hour meter, engine oil pressure, fuel, water temperature, and all gauges are protected by a clear acrylic cover. An enclosed cab and air conditioning are available as options.

The G10-43A offers a variety of attachments, including standard, side-tilt, and swing carriages; a sheet material adapter; pallet, lumber, and cubing forks; material and grapple buckets; truss booms; a fork-mounted work platform; and a lifting hook. Auxiliary hydraulics are standard.

Other options include auxiliary electrics, arctic and cold weather packages, work and road lights, a rotating beacon, and foam-filled, rock, or solid tires.
