Double tap to zoom




The 1530 is powered by a 130-HP Cummins Tier 3 turbo diesel engine with full electronic control and protection.


Modulated Dana Powershift transmission, with 4-speed forward and 3-speed reverse with declutch, allows for safe deceleration before shifting gears.


Outboard planetary axles with oil-immersed, inboard service and parking brakes offer enhanced reliability.

Lift Cylinders

Two wide-stance, heavy-duty lift cylinders are slightly angled toward the center line of the chassis to triangulate the overall alignment. This keeps the boom centered as it elevates.

Rear Axle Stabilization

The rear axle stabilization system slows and locks the rear axle oscillation for enhanced stability as the boom is raised.

Sway Cylinder

Provides 20 degrees of fork leveling (10 degrees right and left of center).

Fork Leveling

The 1530 provides automatic fork leveling without needing slave cylinders.


Achieves forward reach up to 17 feet, 5 inches and a maximum lift height of 30 feet.


Pressure compensated hydraulic system and auxiliary boom tip hydraulics give operators the flexibility to use multiple hydraulic functions at once. Single joystick, pilot operated control covers all boom functions.

Quick Connect

Easily switch between standard fork carriage and other attachments.


4-wheel drive with 2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab hydraulic power steering modes provides agility in tight spaces.

Turning Radius

Turning radius of 16 feet allows for more efficient operation.

Ground Clearance

Provides excellent ground clearance of 21 inches.


Standard 16.00 x 24 pneumatic tires offer 16 ply rating for durability on any terrain.

Operator Cab

Protected by ROPS/FOPS, the cab includes an entry step, adjustable suspension seat with seat belt, adjustable right-side armrest, machine level indicator, and a full set of gauges for instant machine status.
