Earlier this month, JCB unveiled its highest-capacity telescopic handler at its facility in Savannah, Ga. The 16,000-lb. capacity 516-42 telehandler handles loads up to 42’6”. With the stabilizers deployed, the 516-42 can deliver 6,000 lbs. to its full reach of 27’10” and 10,000 lbs/ to 19’10” reach. At its full lift height, the machine can handle 10,000 lbs.

JCB's 510-56 Loadall telescopic handler offers 10,000-lb. maximum capacity, as well as the option of lifting on tires or with front-mounted stabilizers. With stabilizer support, the JCB telehandler can lift 4,000 lbs. to its full 56-ft. height, or provide 42-ft. forward reach with 3,000-lb. capacity. On tires alone, the JCB 510-56 forklift can lift 3,000 lbs. to a height of 52 ft. or 300 lbs. at 42-ft. forward reach.

Telehandlers featured in the demonstrations included the 10,000-lb. capacity JCB 510-56 Loadall, the 12,000-lb. capacity JLG G12-55A, the 20,000-lb.
