JCB Announces New Options for Telehandler Range

New Options for the Range of JCB Loadall Lift-and-Place Telescopic Handlers

March 29, 2019 – JCB announced the availability of new options for the range of JCB Loadall lift-and-place telescopic handlers offered in North America. They include:

  • Positive air shut-off; 
  • Extra mirror package; 
  • Rear-view camera package;
  • Arctic kit; and 
  • Non-marking tires. 

“Demand for JCB telescopic handlers has been very high in recent years due to the strong construction industry and customers from evolving industries, such as the entertainment industry and energy sector, using telehandlers for new applications,” said Rebecca Yates, product manager for material handling at JCB North America. “By making these new options available for our lift-and-place telehandlers, we give current and new customers the opportunity to tailor their machine for maximum productivity and safety in their particular application.” 

The positive air shut-off (PASO) option is designed to shut the engine down if flammable materials are detected to protect the operator and the machine. To further enhance the superior visibility of JCB telehandlers, extra mirrors and a rear back-up camera are available. The new mirror package includes additional mirrors for the boom nose, rear chassis, and engine side, and can be retrofitted to existing machines. A rear back-up camera package includes a camera fitted into the rear chassis and an in-cab monitor and is available as a factory fit option.  

Another new option is non-marking, semi-solid tires for compact and lift-and-place telehandlers, including larger machines up to 14,000 lb. lift capacity. The non-marking tires are grey in color and are significantly less likely than conventional black rubber tires to leave unsightly tire marks on prepared surfaces such as concrete, sidewalks, patios, and hardscapes. 

The JCB Arctic kit enables the telehandler to start and operate in temperatures as low as -40° Fahrenheit (-40° Celsius). The kit includes a hydraulic tank heater, cold-temperate electronic harness and hoses, battery heater, engine sump heater, storage cabinet, and Arctic diesel. The Arctic package is a factory-fit option on 74 hp and 109 hp models.
