JCB - the world’s number one telescopic handler producer - is unveiling a new compact model at CONEXPO 2014 to add to its growing Hi-Viz Loadall range for construction. The launch of the 525-60 brings full-size telehandler performance and features to the compact sector.

With a maximum lift height of 6 m and a load capacity of 2.5 tonnes, the 525-60 is just 1.8 m wide and 1.91 m tall, allowing access to multi-story car parks and permitting operation in confined site conditions. The 525-60 Hi-Viz replaces the 524-50, 527-55 and the 520-50 rear-engined models, with a modern side-engine mount design. This permits a low boom pivot point for maximum stability and increased visibility to the rear and across the boom.

Powerful drivetrain

Powered by a new Tier 4 Final, 2.5-liter, JCB Diesel by Kohler four-cylinder engine, the 525-60 delivers 55 kW (74 hp) for easy lifting performance and rapid travel. As with other JCB engines, there is no requirement for a diesel particulate filter (DPF) or a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to meet the Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. This means that the JCB machine has a service-free emissions control system, reducing operating costs and complexity for customers.

A simple-to-operate two-stage hydrostatic transmission offers travel speeds of up to 25 km/h and the short wheelbase makes the 525-60 an extremely maneuvrable machine. Equipped with an 80 liter/min hydraulic pump, the machine delivers auxiliary hydraulic power for a sideshift attachment carriage. Customers can choose between JCB’s Q-fit carriage or a skid steer compatible attachment interface for ultimate versatility and fleet acceptance.

All boom functions are controlled by a single servo lever joystick, with proportional control of the two-stage boom extension allowing smooth operation and fine control for the operator. The machine is available with a choice of canopy or fully glazed cab, with the option of air conditioning.

Serviceability is much improved with the side-mounted engine installation and, depending on territory, the machine can be supplied with JCB’s LiveLink telematic monitoring system for maximum fleet visibility and maintenance control. Options include full road light kits and screen guards for harsh working environments.
