JCB Introduces Subcompact Telehandler

JCB launched the 504-13 Loadall subcompact telescopic handler, developed in response to growing demand in North America for telehandlers in the under-6,000-lb. category.

With a 4,000-lb. lift capacity and maximum lift height of 13 ft. 3 in., the 504-13 is well-suited to maintenance applications, jobsite cleanup, and material handling within confined worksites. 

The 504-13 builds on the design and capability characteristics of the company’s earlier JCB 520-40 Loadall, with the addition of a new 39-hp Perkins Tier 4 Final-compliant diesel engine. Other features include:

  • All-steel bodywork
  • Permanent four-wheel steering
  • Low boom profile
  • Compact tool carrier or skid steer coupler for attachments to accommodate a wide array of attachments and applications
  • Two-speed hydrostatic transmission
  • Two-year/2,000-hour warranty

The model features JCB’s U-pressed steel boom with fewer welds and stress points than competing brands. The Loadall telehandlers have 500-hour extended service intervals and simplified maintenance procedures, with all daily checks performed at ground level.

“JCB is the biggest selling telehandler brand in North America and around the world,” said Rebecca Yates, product manager for JCB North America. “Much of our success, especially in North America, extends from our popular, early compact telehandlers. And with the compact telehandler market up by about 30% this year, it’s an exciting time to add a new subcompact machine to the JCB line-up and further extend the most diverse telehander range in the industry.” 

The 504-13 Loadall joins 15 other JCB Loadall telehandler models offered in North America for the construction and rental industries—nine tool carriers (TC) and seven lift-and-place machines. The company will add an additional compact model later in 2018.
