JLG to display high-capacity telehandler at World of Concrete

Optional SmartLoad technology is available on the JLG 1644 high-capacity telehandler.

JLG Industries will bring the newest addition to its line of high-capacity telehandlers – the JLG 1644 – to booth #C7264 at World of Concrete January 23–26 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The booth will also feature the SkyTrak 8042 telehandler and the JLG 400S telescopic boom lift.

The JLG 1644 high-capacity telehandler offers 15,650 pounds of lift capacity and offers optional SmartLoad Technology, a bundle of three integrated technologies that work together to deliver a greater level of operator comfort. The first component of the SmartLoad Technology bundle, attachment recognition, allows a telehandler to identify an attachment and display the appropriate load chart to the operator. The second, a load management information system (LMIS), graphically depicts the location of the load within the load chart, provides the operator with an indication of compliance, and prevents the operator from violating boundaries of the chart. The third technology, a load stability indicator (LSI), works in conjunction with the LMIS to limit operation when a load is nearing the maximum capacity indicated on the load chart.

"The 1644 is also among the first equipped with JLG's precision gravity lowering system," said John Boehme, JLG senior product manager, telehandlers. "This system enables the telehandler to rely on hydraulic power to raise the boom, but use gravity to lower it. The result is better, more precise operator control."

According to Boehme, the telehandler also features a soft stop boom control that slows boom functions at the end of the cylinder stroke, an optional reverse camera and reverse sensing system, and an integrated tow hitch. In addition, operators will appreciate a spacious cab with enhanced visibility, two-speed hydrostatic transmission, an optional boom float, and ride control for enhanced load stability when travelling on uneven terrain.

Visitors to the booth will also see the SkyTrak 8042 telehandler, which offers a maximum lift capacity of 8,000 pounds, maximum lift height of 41 feet 11 inches, and maximum reach of 26 feet 7 inches. The telehandler features an intuitive single joystick that controls all functions and improved boom speeds that maximize productivity. The redesigned cab includes a new dashboard, integrated arm rest and optional air conditioning.

The telehandler is available with an optional 74-hp engine that does not require Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and meets Tier 4 Final regulations. In addition, operator confidence increases when placing a load thanks to the Stabil-Trak rear axle stabilization system, while a rear counterweight includes an integrated tow hitch as standard, which increases the versatility of the telehandler by enabling it to perform more functions on the jobsite.

The booth will also feature the JLG 400S telescopic boom lift, which offers a platform height of 40 feet, a restricted platform capacity of 1,000 pounds, unrestricted platform capacity of 600 pounds, and a horizontal outreach of 33 feet 3 inches, allowing operators to carry more tools and materials and stay on the job longer. The boom lift's improved multi-function capability also increases productivity. In addition, the machine is equipped with DuraTough hoods. DuraTough is a stout, yet flexible, polymer that offers heat, impact and corrosion resistance, along with sound and vibration insulation. As a result, DuraTough hoods experience less damage and breakage, which means less maintenance, fewer repairs and increased uptime.
