JCB 541-70 Wastemaster
The telehandler dedicated for the waste and recycling industry
The JCB 541-70 Wastemaster is a large telescopic handler which benefits from our award-winning new EcoMAX engine and sits on a chassis designed for load-bearing and stability.
EcoMAX meets Stage IIIB/Tier 4i legislation without using a bulky DPF, which, in turn, brings benefits like great visibility, low running costs and more uptime. To increase productivity still further, there’s a variable-speed cooling fan on 81kW and 93kW engines, a perfectly harmonised all-JCB drivetrain, and high back-off brakes. Special Wastemaster spec means it’s also fitted with extra guarding, protection and uprated hydraulics.
A JCB 541-70 Wastemaster Loadall is fitted with a tough inverted U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength we limit the number of joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.
The boom on a 541-70 Wastemaster is mounted low in the chassis, providing a rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility. Hoses are routed through the boom for maximum protection, while boom overlaps of up to 1.0m ensure ultimate strength and durability.
The new 541-70 Wastemaster telescopic handler’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.
JCB’s EcoMAX motor produces high levels of power and torque even at engine speeds as low as 1400-1600rpm, which means that a JCB Construction Loadall can provide fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
A JCB 541-70 Wastemaster telescopic handler is a great asset in so many respects, not least financially – huge global demand, plus legendary productivity and superb build quality equals maximum resale value.
Our Wastemaster Loadalls take toughness to a new level. Extra guarding for the cab and lighting are standard, as is underbelly protection, all of which protects both your investment and your operators.
For quick, easy and safe access, the JCB 541-70 Wastemaster has a three-point access.
The seat safety switch on the 541-70 Wastemaster disables forward and reverse when an operator leaves their seat; this prevents inadvertent operation.
The 541-70 Wastemaster’s factory-fit immobiliser arms itself after a certain period following engine shutdown. Choose your activation method from a unique key or 4-digit keypad.
Backlit switches are clearly visible, even at night or in low visibility.
