JLG to stop making four rear-pivot steer telehandler models

October 23, 2009

McCONNELLSBURG, Pa. - JLG Industries Inc. recently announced it will discontinue the manufacturing of its four rear-pivot steer telehandler models.

Beginning in 2010, the G6-42P, 534D9-45, 534D10-45 and 544D10-55 no longer will be part of the JLG-branded family of telehandlers.

JLG will continue to manufacture the JLG-branded G5-18A, 619A, 723A, G6-42A, G9-43A, G10-43A, G10-55A and G12-55A.

Programs will be put in place to provide customers with access to rebuilt/reconditioned rear-pivot steer units long after the last new units are manufactured as part of the JLG Ground Support aftermarket support program.

Unlike the other eight models in the JLG-branded family, rear-pivot telehandlers provide 90-degree rear-pivot steering with the two rear wheels. This feature differentiates these models from a market that is dominated by four-wheel steer models. The market for these niche models has been regionally focused and has continued to decline over the past several years.
