Skyworks acquires 100,000th JLG Telehandler

Specially designed commemorative telehandler

By

Sixteen years after the first telehandler rolled off the production line, JLG delivered a specially designed commemorative 100,000th telehandler to Skyworks LLC of Buffalo, N.Y. The modified G10-55A was the one and only commemorative telehandler built in North America.

This is not the first time the equipment rental company has received a piece of JLG history. Skyworks purchased JLG’s 100,000th boom lift in 2006 and took delivery of the first JLG 1850SJ Ultra Boom lift, the world’s largest self-propelled lift, in 2014. What’s more, Access Rentals – founded in 1974 by the father of Jerry Reinhart, president and founder of Skyworks – purchased a JLG lift commemorating the nation’s bicentennial in 1976.

The G10-55A telehandler has a lift capacity of 10,000 pounds and a maximum lift height of 55 feet.
