Starting the Climb
I relish the chance to run equipment, so when I was one of more than 30 editors that JLG invited to experience a day at its newly expanded and improved customer training center in McConnellsburg, Pa., I accepted eagerly.
JLG’s invitation promised a tour of its training center; the chance to run a scissor lift, a boom lift, and a telehandler on the center’s proving ground; and a chance to ride up 185 ft. in the JLG 1850SJ, the world’s tallest self-propelled boom lift.

JLG Industries Inc. has announced it will discontinue manufacturing the Lull telehandler product line in 2015.

JLG's G12-55A telescopic handler offers 12,000-lb. maximum capacity with outriggers down or up. With outrigger support, the JLG forklift operator can lift 5,000 lbs. to its full 55-ft. maximum height, or provide 42-ft. forward reach with 3,500-lb. capacity. On tires alone, the JLG telehandler can lift 4,000 lbs. to a height of 55 ft., or 500 lbs. at 37-ft. forward reach.

Heavy Telescopic Handler Showdown

Only about a decade ago, 10,000-lb. telehandlers were the largest commonly seen telehandlers, but engineering feats over the years have more than quadrupled these machines’ capacities. The 2012 Lift and Access Showcase & Symposium featured walkaround demonstrations of four larger telescopic handlers that ranged in capacity from 10,000 to 30,000 lbs. Telehandlers featured in the demonstrations included the 10,000-lb. capacity JCB 510-56 Loadall, the 12,000-lb. capacity JLG G12-55A, the 20,000-lb.

Long before it became part of JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., the SkyTrak product line was the largest selling brand of telehanders in North America. Under JLG's ownership, SkyTrak telescopic handler continues to hold its place at the top. From its rugged, unitized steel frame and industry leading stability system to its widely used attachment system and straightforward controls, this utilitarian machine was designed to be simple, reliable, and easy to operate.
