The strongest contender - built by JCB for JCB
Here at JCB, we’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.
Class-leading JCB hydraulics produce the fastest cycle times, ensuring the most efficient lifting, extending and pushing. A variable speed cooling fan automatically reacts to ambient temperature, adjusting fan speed for maximum economy and minimum noise.
The JCB 540-170 Construction Loadall telehandler boasts excellent manoeuvrability and fast travel times across site, courtesy of a compact wheelbase and large steering lock angles.
With 4WD as standard, you get plenty of traction and performance even in soft, muddy areas. 2WD can be selected to minimise tyre wear and fuel use.
Multi-function single lever servo control provides fast and accurate load placement. Controlling your 540-170 Loadall’s direction is easy too, with just a flick of a switch.
An LED screen on the JCB 540-170 Loadall’s dash provides useful information for efficient running, like fuel remaining, fuel used since last fill, current average fuel consumption, DEF level and any current warnings.
By producing high levels of power and torque even at engine speeds as low as 1300rpm, EcoMAX can provide fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
JCB telescopic handlers enjoy proven demand supported by legendary productivity and build quality, ensuring high residuals the world over. EcoMAX can be adapted to run on lower-grade fuels, making Construction Loadalls easily resalable across different territories, boosting residuals further still.
Fluid filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel) are centrally located for fast, easy servicing. The air filter is easily accessible too, and its double-element design simplifies cleaning; yet another reason why JCB Construction Loadalls have best-in-class SAE serviceability ratings.
All daily checks and greasing on the JCB 540-170 can be performed at ground level. It’s also easy to fill the diesel and AdBlue tanks from ground level, with both tanks equipped with pre-filters in the filler necks to guard against dirt and contaminants.
You can access the battery easily on this telescopic handler (and without specialist tools) via a lockable cover that’s opened with the ignition key.
A dry lubricant system means the JCB 540-170’s wear pads are extremely durable, with service intervals of 500 hours.
