The JCB 524-50 is the first of our hugely efficient Dieselmax-powered Loadalls. It has a footprint designed for 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, 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 524-50 Loadall uses a combination of individual hydraulic wheel motors and four-wheel steer for superb manoeuvrability.
It’s also got JCB’s Dieselmax engine for improved power and productivity. The 63 kW unit produces its power and torque at low revs, meaning that the engine has to work less hard than rival machines. That saves fuel and, of course, money.
Of course, good ground clearance and four wheel drive means this compact telehandler can make excellent progress in any conditions or terrain. Add a hydrostatic transmission for easy operation, infinite speed variations and great fuel efficiency, and you have truly versatile performance and productivity.
- Three steer modes (2-wheel, 4-wheel and crab)
- Superb visibility
- Transmission disconnect button diverts engine power for improved hydraulic cycle times
- Parallel lift gives excellent load retention
- Long chassis provides stability
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 telehandler. The one-piece bonnet is on a gas strut for ease and safety; the radiator chaff guard and reversing fan keeps out debris; the fold-out cooling package is easy to clean, as is the flat floor with drainage channels; 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 524-50 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 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 524-50 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 524-50 Loadall are potential thieves and vandals; all Loadall windows are etched with serial numbers, and a battery isolator immobilises the machine.
