LESS SERVICING, MORE SERVICE
Every JCB Loadall is designed to maximise uptime and productivity. To do that, we make sure our components last a long time and, when routine replacements need to take place, we make sure everything important is easily accessible.
All daily checks and greasing on a 540-170 Loadall can be carried out at ground level; engine oil, hydraulic and fuel filters are centrally located for convenience. The air filter is also easily accessible, and easy to clean.
For fast, easy inspection of 3 sides of the engine, this telescopic handler has a large, wide service bay, accessed by a gas-assisted bonnet. The fold-out cooling package is easy to clean, as is the flat floor with drainage channels.
MADE TO LAST
A JCB 540-170 Loadall is fitted with a tough inverted U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength we limit the number of joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.
The boom on a 540-170 is mounted low in the chassis, providing a rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility. Hoses are routed through the boom for maximum protection, while boom overlaps of up to 1.0m ensure ultimate strength and durability.
JCB 540-170 telehandler engines are tried and tested; we’ve built 200,000 DIESELMAX units since 2004, and fitted them to a variety of machines across different applications and environments.
There’s an optional radiator chaff guard and a reversing fan to keep out debris on this JCB Loadall.
The new 540-170 telescopic handler’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles.
A one-piece fully welded chassis maximises the strength and minimises the weight of the JCB 540-170.
