JCB has announced that its entire telehandler range will now be fitted with its home-grown engines.
The telehandlers are the first agricultural machines to receive the JCB 444 power plant, after its introduction to back-hoe loaders earlier this year.
To accompany this change, the telehandler range gets a new designation.
Formerly known as Farm Specials, the machines are now to be called Agri.
The payloads have increased by 100kg and model numbers have changed, too. So the 530-70 becomes the 531-70 and so on.
Three derivatives of the telehandler will be available: The Agri, Agri-Plus and Agri-Super.
The Super model is 125hp with a six-speed powershift whereas the smaller models are four-speed units with 100hp and 125hp engines, respectively.
