The Loadall 531-70 and 536-60; the 536-70 in standard and LP (low profile) forms; the 541-70 and high-lift 535-95; and the 550-80 and 560-80 bulk handlers, are the first Stage IV emissions compliant telehandlers from JCB. Engine emissions have been met with a compact solution that does not need an expensive diesel particulates filter (DPF) and its additional service requirements. There is just an SCR system to reduce NoX, and the 4.4-litre or 4.8-litre JCB EcoMAX T4 engines provide the same power and torque characteristics as before and outputs of 109hp, 125hp and 145hp, says JCB. Other changes include a new high flow auxiliary hydraulics option delivering up to 105-litre/min flow at 190 Bar. Additional hydraulic features include the new ‘auto’ mode for the Smooth Ride Suspension boom cushioning, which saves having to switch modes with the Loadall stationary; an auxiliary hydraulics pressure relief valve for quicker and easier attachment change-over; and the Bucket Control System, which saves operators having to make repeated joystick movements to shift sticky materials from a grab or bucket. The new telehandlers will make their public debut at LAMMA, in January.
