JCB Loadall telescopic handlers

Engineers at JCB have created a compact "one can" solution ensuring that the company's Loadall telescopic handlers meet Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emissions rules. The engine's efficient combustion means there is no need for an expensive diesel particulates filter and its additional service requirements, so there is just an SCR system to reduce NOx.

This solution is compact enough to be combined with the exhaust silencer in a single assembly housed beneath the engine hood, where it is protected from the weather, mud and dust. The engine hood itself is unchanged, so visibility to the side and rear three-quarters is just as good as before.

The first JCB telehandlers produced to the Stage IV/Tier 4 Final specification are the Loadall 531-70 and 536-60; the 536-70 in standard and LP (low profile) forms; the 541-70 (pictured) and high-lift 535-95; and the 550-80 and 560-80 bulk handling machines.

All have 4.4-litre or 4.8-litre JCB EcoMAX T4 Final engines with the same power and torque characteristics as before and outputs of 109hp, 125hp and 145hp.
