Updated with a Tier 4-Final Deutz TD 2.9 L4 engine, the GTH-5519 telehandler requires no DPF and uses a DOC. The Deutz TD 2.9 L4 engine, rated at 74 horsepower and replacing the 67-horsepower Deutz D 2011 L4 Tier 4-Interim engine, meets emissions compliance with in-cylinder technology (including cooled exhaust gas recirculation) and a diesel oxidation catalyst as after treatment. A diesel particulate filter is not required. With a maximum lift capacity of 5,500 pounds, maximum lift height of 19 feet, and an operating weight of 10,360 pounds, the GTH-5519 is designed, says Genie, as a general-purpose machine, small enough to work comfortably on congested job sites and entirely competent to unload trucks, transport material, and efficiently handle attachments, such as augers and sweepers.

The new model features auxiliary hydraulics and is available with a quick coupler or a universal-style coupler that accommodates skid-steer loader attachments. The new telehandler’s specifications have changed slightly by reducing overall length by 5 inches, expanding its wheelbase by 2 inches, decreasing its turning radius by 3 inches, and by adding 540 lbs to its operating weight. Design refinements include a new hydrostatic transmission, redesign of engine and hydraulic cooling systems, and an added housing to allow access to hydraulic connections and air bleeding valves.

The GTH-5519’s cabin interior has been extensively refined, featuring a black dashboard with a new main-instrumentation cluster that provides an integrated display showing messages from the engine’s electronic control unit. A new, more-efficient defroster and ventilation unit keeps the cabin comfortable, says Genie, and a enhancements to interior trim adds to operator comfort and convenience.
