The new Model G9-43A telehandler by JLG Industries and The Gradall Co. offers a 9,000-pound capacity, a 43-foot maximum lift height and a 30-foot reach with the operator's choice of all-wheel, front wheel or crab steering. The machine's backbone frame is offset slightly to the operator cab side, bringing the mid-mounted engine closer to the center of the machine for efficient left-right weight distribution. The even weight distribution advantage complements the machine's long wheelbase and low center of gravity, helping to keep it both mobile and versatile while working on slopes as well as on dirt, gravel, sand or in sticky mud. The Deere 4045TF150 99-hp turbocharged engine is located in a new low, mid-mounted compartment, making routine service functions convenient at ground level.

With a 56-foot lift height and 40.5-foot forward reach, the VR-1056C telescopic material handler from Ingersoll-Rand features the company's patented rear axle stabilization system. It allows operators to extend the boom to its fullest reach without stabilizer deployment, and it carries 6,000 pounds to 56 feet with stabilizers and 4,000 pounds to the top without stabilizers. Powered by a new Tier II Cummins QSB4.5 engine with electronic controls, the handler has upgraded hydraulics that provide greater control throughout the boom lifting range. Results include accelerated telescopic action, which puts the load into position faster, and built-in cushioning at the far and close ends of the lifting sequence allowing the load to be placed and transported with greater smoothness.

Linde Lift Truck Corp.

Linde Lift Truck Corp. introduces its new 39X hydrostatic drive 5,000-pound capacity truck. Energy losses from friction created by metal-to-metal contact in the reduction units have been eliminated with the inclusion of new hydrostatic wheel motors built to operate at low speed and higher oil volume per revolution, making the planetary reduction gears at both drive wheels unnecessary. The previous Linde standard of 500-hour maintenance intervals has been extended up to 1,000 hours if specific approved engine oil and engine coolant are utilized.
