The new model MT 5519 telescopic handler features a low-profile, compact frame with an overall height of 6 feet, 4 inches, and a tight turning radius of 11 feet, giving it the ability to maneuver in low buildings and confined jobsites. The low-profile boom reaches to a height of 19 feet, 1 inch, and has a 5,500-pound lift capacity. Internal wet disc brakes are standard equipment for better stopping capability and longer life. A spring-applied hydraulic-release parking brake is automatically applied when the engine is shut off or by manually pressing a rocker switch — a design that eliminates the cable stretch and adjustments associated with competitive machines.
