Combining high levels of power and traction with compact dimensions, the JCB 530-60 Agri Super is a new model in the popular 6.0m lift height sector. Lift capacity is 3.0t.

While ideally sized to match the needs of livestock farms who need a nimble machine for daily tasks in and around buildings, overall height and width on the 20in tyre option is a narrow 2.0m. The 24in tyre option increases ground clearance and traction when working outdoors on muddy and uneven surfaces.

Maximum power of the 4.8l Stage V DieselMAX block is 130hp, and the combination of this and the new two-speed hydrostatic transmission delivers a 25% increase in dynamic tractive effort over its predecessor (527-58 Agri Plus).

VariSpeed control provides separate engine revs and ground speed adjustment when using hydraulically-driven attachments like a bucket feeder or sweeper.

The Smart Hydraulics package features regenerative hydraulics for fast but controlled boom lowering, Smooth Ride System boom suspension, boom-end hydraulic cylinder damping, and bucket shake with minimal control input.

The 530 also has improved visibility and a host of previously optional features installed as standard, taking its equipment level close to that of the firm’s larger Loadalls.
