Agritechnica 09: JCB shows 2×2 Lodall

As well as having its Miniscopic telehandler on show for the first time in public, JCB had a neatly packaged 2m x 2m Loadall, the 527-58.

With a lift capacity of 2.7t and reach of 5.8m, the “2×2” as JCB affectionately call it, has a 100hp Dieselmax engine and hydrostatic four-wheel drive.

The compact market isn’t the only area that JCB are concentrating on, there was a heavy-duty concept machine making an appearance.

The 550-80 Loadall boasts a two-stage 8m boom that can lift an impressive 5t. The 130hp model will be launched some time next year.
