Mustang Manufacturing

The new Model 519 is a compact telehandler that offers 19 feet of lift height and 5,500 pounds of maximum lift capacity. A 64-hp Deutz diesel engine powers the 519, which has a two-speed hydraulic transmission for low-end power, while providing a quick transport speed up to 15 mph. To maximize maneuverability, the 519 features three steering modes — 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab-steer.

Tri-State Tower, a Midwest telecommunications contractor, recently rented the Mustang 519 to help build a series of guy towers. “We previously used skid loaders for this type of job,” said Todd Hughes, director of business development. “The crew likes the increased lift capacity and extra height.”

The SJ 40T and SJ 45T (pictured) boomlifts feature an analog-based control system, relay-based electrical system and axle-based 4-wheel-drive system. With no wheel motors or torque hubs, there are no hydraulic hoses left unprotected from jobsite hazards, and the number of potential hydraulic leak sites is reduced. The SJ 40T and SJ 45T also feature Skyjack's direction sensing controls, which ensure the boomlift will always drive and steer with respect to the operator rather than the orientation of the base.
