JCB 540-170



The latest JCB 540-170 Loadall is a highly efficient telescopic handler. As a product of JCB’s Efficient Design programme, it’s made using only sustainable manufacturing processes, creating machinery that remains sustainable throughout its working life and beyond.

At JCB, they’ve been constantly evolving the telehandler concept ever since we pioneered it back in 1977. The latest 540-170 Loadall is an embodiment of that process, developed to meet the needs of rental companies and contractors alike, and able to cope with the unique demands of any site. A huge reach and compact dimensions, as well as unrivalled manoeuvrability, build quality and operator comfort are just the beginning.

As with all JCB Construction telescopic handlers, the 540-170 has unrivalled productivity, efficiency, safety and serviceability as standard too.

Heavy-duty axle feet help the JCB 540-170 Construction Loadall telehandler to absorb the immense stresses generated during continuous heavy material re handling applications, while a one-piece fully welded chassis maximizes strength and minimizes weight.

There’s a tough U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, there are large boom overlaps of up to 1.0m; we’ve also reduced joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.

To provide long-term corrosion protection, we dip JCB Construction Loadall cabs in electrophoretic ally prior to painting. Keyhole castings hold the tilt and extension rams in place to further improve overall structural integrity.

Hydraulic hoses are intelligently routed through the boom for maximum protection; the bonnet is side-mounted, which protects it from site damage; and rear lights fold up to keep them clear and well protected from damage when working on site.

The boom on a JCB 540-170 Construction Loadall telehandler is mounted low in the chassis, providing an extremely rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility.

The new Construction Loadall range’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles.

Optional front and top screen roof guards offer additional protection from falling debris.
