Ausa has signed a 10-year agreement with JLG to manufacture a new ultra-compact telehandler.

The new SkyTrak 3013 is designed to handle materials in narrow spaces and will be manufactured in Manresa, Spain. It allows JLG to expand its catalogue to a segment that it had previously not covered.

JLG will launch the new model at the ARA Show in the US in February.

In 2019 Ausa achieved a revenue of €86 million, 70% of which came from global markets. The company added that this new agreement reinforced that international strategy. In addition, Ausa invested €12 million in designing new, more efficient and safer models and launched its first electric model.

The SkyTrak 3013 is adapted from Ausa’s existing T144H, which weighs around 2,400kg and has a load capacity of 1,220kg. The new model has a lifting height of 4m and can be transported on a conventional trailer. Additionally, it has four-wheel drive and rear steering, a hydrostatic transmission and two accessory attachment options. It is powered by a Kubota V-1505 diesel engine providing 19 kW.

Rogerio dos Santos, senior director of engineering at JLG, said, ”Together, with JLG’s innovation in the lift industry and its proven success in the telescopic handler market, the partnership between the two companies will allow us to build a vehicle that is more versatile and durable than our competitors’ models.”

Ramon Carbonell, CEO of Ausa, said, “The partnership between Ausa and JLG to manufacture the SkyTrak 3013 represents a commitment by two global leaders in the telescopic handler business to meet a need in the US market.”
