Oshkosh's JLG Industries says its 619A and 723A compact telehandlers were designed for a variety of functions, including landscaping, construction, and agricultural applications.
The 619A provides almost 6000 lb (2720 kg) of capacity at the maximum reach height of 19 ft (5.8 m), while the 723A allows nearly 7000 lb (3175 kg) at a height of 23 ft (7 m). According to JLG, it is those compact dimensions that provide the maneuverability necessary for jobs such as loading or unloading mulch, transporting hay bales, or moving pallets on a crowded jobsite.
Both models are equipped with all-wheel steer and include a single joystick control design that JLG says combines smoother and more quick, precise control for peak performance when picking or placing loads. The controls feature a standard lift/loader mode feature that allows the operator to switch the primary function of the X-axis from controlling the telescopic function of the boom to controlling the tilt or dump function of the attachment. This feature, combined with a variety of available attachments and the ability to utilize skid steer attachments, further increases the versatility of these models.
These models will complement the existing G5-18A, creating a JLG branded lineup of three compact telehandlers and 11 construction models. With the launch of these models, JLG will discontinue the G5-19A and G6-23A.
