McConnellsburg, Pa.-based JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, expands its telehandler line to include the 2733 telehandler.


The highest capacity telehandler JLG offers, the 2733 has a 26,600-lb maximum capacity and is purpose-built to handle and haul heavy, bulky materials; load and unload trucks and trailers; and help maintenance and repair personnel work on larger fleet equipment. The 2733 telehandler offers 33 feet of maximum lifting height and an 8,000-pound capacity at maximum reach for excellent capability throughout the entire load chart.


“The 2733 is designed to be a versatile machine that can adapt to a wide variety of job site challenges, as well as tackle demanding pick-and-carry applications in above-ground mining, wind energy, oil and gas, industrial construction and large-scale commercial construction projects,” says John Boehme, JLG senior product manager, telehandlers.


Boehme adds that, with its wide range of specialized attachments available for high-capacity telehandlers, the 2733 can replace more traditional machines that traditionally come with higher rental rates. “The 2733 can take the place of wheel loaders, in certain applications where greater lift height and forward reach is desired,” says Boehme. “Compared to a wheel loader, the 2733 offers greater versatility due to its lift height and forward reach, as well as better maneuverability due to its compact size, better travel speed and terrainability.”


The 2733 is equipped with performance-enhancing productivity features, including a two-speed hydrostatic transmission with optional ride control and boom float to improve load stability and promote smoother operation on uneven terrain. It also features an outside turning radius to provide excellent maneuverability on crowded job sites, according to the company. This model’s spacious cab offers operators superior comfort with excellent visibility and intuitive controls.


Designed to give operators the ability to work with greater confidence, the 2733 comes standard with JLG’s Load Stability Indication system, which senses when the telehandler reaches forward load capacity. It is also engineered with precision gravity lowering and soft stop boom controls to provide operators with better boom control for precision placement.


JLG’s SmartLoad Technology is an available option on this new telehandler. The technology in this system combines attachment recognition with real-time load data, allowing operators to handle materials with greater confidence. This three-part system includes attachment recognition, longitudinal stability indication and a load management indication system.


The 2733 can also be equipped with a right-side electronic mirror to give operators enhanced visibility on the right side of the machine. This system has three components: two cameras, one facing forward and one facing the rear; an internal display located inside the cab; and right-side cameras that replace the typical right-side external mirror.


Other options include a multifunction display and a reverse sensing system. The multifunction display features integrated, electronic load charts, a reversing camera, diagnostics and analyzer capability to further assist the operator during machine operation. The reverse sensing system is designed to alert the operator of rear obstructions with an audible alarm.
