JLG G12-55A Telehandler

Proven Power for the Toughest Jobsites

When big jobs need to get done, the JLG G12-55A Telehandler is the machine you can count on. The perfect choice for the oil and gas industry as well as commercial and residential construction, the G12-55A is a powerhouse suited for intense tasks that require a combination of lifting capacity and reach.


We have telehandlers for sale and rent. Contact H&K Equipment online or call us at 1-800-272-9953 to discuss options, pricing, or additional features.

When your jobsite pushes you to new heights, JLG has you covered. With the outriggers deployed, the G12-55A is capable of lifting 5,000 pounds to a height of 55 feet and has 42 feet of forward reach, even when burdened with a 3,500 pound load. Power, precision, and versatility come standard.

  • 12,000 Pound Capacity
  • Cummins QSB 4.5L ATAAC Tier 4 Diesel Engine
  • Up to 55 Feet of Lift Height
  • 5,000 Pound Capacity at Maximum Height

  • Three Operator Selectable Steering Modes

Make a Bigger Impact, and Less of an Environmental One
The G12-55A Telehandler Forklift comes newly equipped with a side-mounted Cummins QSB4.5L Tier4i diesel engine that produces 130 horsepower and 457 feet-pound max torque. These cleaner, more efficient engines give the G12-55A a JLG-best 12,000 pound load capacity and offer greater fuel efficiency while reducing your environmental impact.

Make the Jobsite Safer
The jobsite can be a dangerous place; having a clear view makes it that much safer. The side-mounted engine, boom pivot and cab position offer 360 degrees of visibility. The intuitive controls allow you to adjust boom lift and crowd with just a single joystick, giving you pinpoint precision and total control.

Make Extreme Terrain a Non-Issue
Rugged, awkward and crowded areas are no concern thanks to the G12-55A's 168-inch turning radius. And with 19 inches of ground clearance, you’ll have the confidence to drive over even the roughest terrain. The G12-55A also offers three modes of steering: front-wheel steer for driving on roads, all-wheel steer to reduce turning radius and crab-steer for sideways movement and precise positioning. Tires are an important part of any machine, which is why the G12-55A telehandler comes exclusively equipped with Firestone DuraForce MH tires. Featuring unique self-cleaning treads to enhance terrainability along with a lower profile to help prevent sidewall damage, the DuraForce MH series lasts up to three times longer than other tires.

Make the Machine Fit the Job
The JLG G12-55A is available with a suite of options that allow you to customize the machine to fit the application. Add-ons include work lights, an enclosed cab and A/C, and a host of attachments including a grapple bucket, swing carriage, pallet forks, material bucket, fork-mounted work platform and lifting hook.
