JLG introduced the 742 telehandler at ConExp-Con/AGG.
The 742 telehandler offers a 7000 lb. maximum lift capacity and multiple powertrain options to suit a wide range of job site applications and oil change intervals which can be extended to 1000 hours, which helps lower cost of ownership, the company said.
“The new JLG 742 telehandler introduces a precision gravity lowering system to the JLG family of telehandlers,” said John Boehme, JLG Industries product manager, telehandlers. “Using this system allows the 742 to rely on hydraulic power to raise the telehandler boom, using gravity to lower it, thus providing the operator with better, more precise control and increasing the machine’s efficiency.”
According to Boehme, JLG plans to incorporate this new technology across its entire line of telehandlers later this year.
“This latest model expands our current range of telehandlers, reinforcing JLG’s commitment as an access equipment industry leader to provide our customers with a dynamic product line to meet their ever-changing needs,” said Boehme.
JLG is at booth #G3946.
