SkyTrak 6042 telehandler updated

June 26, 2023
Lift height is 42 feet

Model 6042 SkyTrak telehandler has been updated. The unit has a lifting capacity of 6,000 pounds and an operating weight of 19,000 pounds. Lift height is 42 feet, and forward reach is 29 feet.

Three steering modes are available: 2-wheel, 4-wheel, and 4-wheel crab. The 6042 telehandler measures 95 inches wide and has a 15-inch ground clearance.

The 74-horsepower telehandler has a hydrostatic transmission and inching functionality, which allows operators to run the boom at high speeds without shifting the transmission into neutral. The single joystick is electric over hydraulic, and the auxiliary hydraulic function and attachment tilt are included on the joystick.

The auxiliary hydraulic connections are now on the side of the boom head so operators can efficiently change attachments. A standard boom-mounted lifting lug can be used to properly handle a suspended load. The telehandler also has an integrated tow hitch on the rear counterweight.

The SkyTrak telehandler has a lightweight design that allows two units to be hauled on a single flatbed trailer.

The single joystick is electric over hydraulic for greater multifunction capability. The auxiliary hydraulic function and attachment tilt are included on the joystick for enhanced productivity.

An advanced control system allows for options such as load stability indication (LSI), seatbelt engagement, and operator presence (SEOP), along with improved diagnostics. The new cab design features a larger LCD display for a more data-rich interface and larger, single-page load charts for added convenience.

SkyTrak 6042 options

  • Multi-reverse camera system displays multiple views from behind the machine to the left, right, and rear. This system can be used during the day and night, and it features four components: Left and right-side backup cameras, a rear backup camera, and a tri-view monitor.
  • Reverse sensing system alerts operators to rear obstructions with an audible alarm.
  • White noise backup alarm emits a directional alarm signal on the machine as it travels in reverse.         

Service enhancements include a 30-percent reduction on hydraulic hoses and connections, resulting in fewer potential leak points. The top-mounted telescopic cylinder provides easier access for service, and the rear access door on the frame has been replaced with a bolt-on panel for added durability.

Enhancements to the boom include faster boom function speed, an 8-percent improvement over previous models, and an updated single compensation and lift cylinder design for fewer components to maintain, streamlining maintenance.
