JLG Industries has unveiled two new telehandler models as it rolls out an update of its SkyTrak range.
The SkyTrak 6034 and 6042 telehandlers, both with 6,000 lb. (2.7 T) maximum lift capacity, are lighter than the models they replace, allowing three 6034 models or two 6042 models to be hauled on a single flatbed trailer.
JLG senior product manager – Telehandlers John Boehme says: “Understanding the demands and challenges crews face on work sites day after day we redesigned the all-new 6034 and 6042 models with features and capabilities directly inspired by the needs of those who need them most.
"These updated models deliver our customers’ most requested features, with zero sacrifice.”
The 6034 and 6042 are equipped with 74 hp, 2.9-litre Deutz diesel engines, hydrostatic transmissions and inching functionality, which allows operators to run the boom at high speeds without shifting the transmission into neutral.
Both models feature a common coupler for use with all JLG and SkyTrak attachments as well as a standard boom-mounted lifting lug that can be used to handle a suspended load and an integrated tow hitch on the rear counterweight for added jobsite versatility.
The new models both have advanced control systems featuring options such as load stability indication (LSI), seatbelt engagement and operator presence (SEOP), along with improved diagnostics.
JLG Industries, a unit of Oshkosh, makes arial work platforms and rotary telehandlers as well as SkyTrak telehandlers.
