Highest payload claim for JCBs new handler

HIGHEST payload telescopic handler in JCB Landpowers range, is how the new 540-70 Loadall Farm Special is described by the company.

Seen as a development of the existing 530-70 it offers a lift capacity of 4t and the ability to handle 1.5t at 3.75m forward reach.

Power is supplied by a Perkins 1000 series engine rated at 106hp, and transmission comprises a four-speed powershift claimed to provide a combination of high tractive performance and respectable road speeds. Features include a two-section boom – stronger than the 530-70 version – and, in the cab, a new-style joystick incorporating a transmission disconnect button on its front face and a series of other hydraulic control buttons on its rear face.

In terms of lift height, the 540-70 is rated at 7m, maximum forward reach is 3.7m and maximum lift at full forward reach is 1.5t.

Price of the JCB 540-70 Loadall Farm Special is £41,950.
