JLG and AUSA have entered into an agreement to manufacture SkyTrak ultracompact telehandlers.

JLG has announced a 10-year partnership with the Spanish company AUSA to build a new SkyTrak 3013 ultracompact telehandler.

The SkyTrak 3013 telehandler is designed for landscapers, small industrial work, and agricultural applications. The machine weighs approximately 5,300 pounds with a load capacity of 2,700 pounds and a 13-foot lift height. Its light weight allows for transport on small tow-behind trailers.

Small diesel engine

Additionally, the model features 4-wheel drive, two-wheel rear steer, a hydrostatic drive system, and two coupler options, all supported by a Kubota V-1505 diesel engine with 30.8 horsepower.

“JLG is excited to announce this partnership with AUSA, a manufacturer with more than 60 years of experience in the design of compact industrial equipment,” said Rogerio dos Santos, senior director of engineering for JLG.

Telehandler alternative to skid steers

When compared to skid steers, the ultracompact machine will offer better reach into truck beds and trailers and over obstacles, in addition to better lift height for single-story houses and dump trucks, JLG says. The placement of the boom is designed to give operators a 360-degree view.

“The partnership between AUSA and JLG to build the SkyTrak 3013 celebrates two global leaders in the telehandler business coming together to fill a need in the North American marketplace,” said Ramon Carbonell, CEO of AUSA. “We are proud of our legacy in this market and pleased to partner with a company that is a world-leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of access equipment.”

The machine will make its debut at the ARA show in February.
