JLG Upgrades SkyTrak Telehandler Line

JLG has introduced its upgraded line of SkyTrak brand telehandlers, now powered by a Tier 4 Final Cummins QSF 3.8L diesel engine.

A single joystick provides enhanced multifunction capability, and combined with the new integrated arm rest, helps reduce operator fatigue. A redesigned dash panel display is clean and clear. Air conditioning will be an OEM option on SkyTrak machines for the first time.

JLG Upgraded SkyTrak TelehandlerOutside, boom functions are faster and the cab door is engineered to be more durable. The rear counterweight now includes an integrated tow hitch for jobsite versatility. The line also sports a new color scheme and new decals for a modern look.

“SkyTrak is the number one selling brand of telehandler in North America,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries’ global product director for telehandlers, “and these upgrades will most certainly ensure that this remains unchanged for the foreseeable future.”
