The JCB 520-50 is another compact, manoeuvrable Loadall. It has a larger footprint than the 520-40 for added load-bearing and stability.
4 equal sized wheels improve tractive effort for excellent loader performance, while soft ground flotation and ground clearance are first class. Permanent 4-wheel steer and 4WD, together with a compact machine size, means an exceptionally tight turning circle for great manoeuvrability and handling in small yards.
MANOEUVRABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
The JCB 520-50 Loadall uses a combination of two axles and a four-speed synchromesh transmission and four-wheel steer for superb manoeuvrability.
It’s also got a significantly larger engine than the smaller 520-40 (55.9 kW as opposed to 37.5 kW) for improved power and productivity.
Of course, good ground clearance and four wheel drive means this compact telehandler can make excellent progress in any conditions or terrain.
- Narrow (and therefore highly manoeuvrable) chassis
- Four wheel steer for excellent manoeuvrability
- Superb visibility
- Transmission disconnect button diverts engine power for improved hydraulic cycle times
- Parallel lift gives excellent load retention
SERVICEABILITY AND DURABILITY
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.
So all checks are quick, simple and safe to carry out from ground level on this compact telehandler. The one-piece bonnet is on a gas strut for ease and safety; the radiator chaff guard keeps out debris; and most service intervals, including boom lubrication, are a lengthy 500 hours.
Every JCB Loadall has a one-piece fully welded chassis for maximum strength and minimum weight. Hoses are routed through the boom and lights fold away to protect against site damage. The U-shaped boom with integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate has reduced joints and stress points.
Key components like Loadall transmissions are tested over thousands of cycles and all of our manufacturing processes are backed by ISO 9001:2008.
The JCB 520-50 Loadall has class-leading comfort, not least because of its spacious, safe, side-entry cab. Visibility is superb and there are stable doors for ventilation, all of which is just the start; we invest in the compact telehandler operator’s comfort because it equates to real, measurable improvements in day-long productivity.
This means building everything around the operator, from a fully adjustable suspension seat and steering column, mobile phone holder and intelligently placed air vents, to ergonomic controls on the front console.
Controls on the JCB 520-50 small telehandler are intelligently grouped for instinctive use, with hydraulic and transmission controls laid out for quick, safe and precise operation. The load moment indicator, providing progressive read out of forward stability, is at eye level for easy checks and maximum safety.
In fact, the only people who might lose out with the 520-50 Loadall are potential thieves and vandals; all Loadall windows are etched with serial numbers, and a battery isolator immobilises the machine.
