The most compact Teletruk 27D/G models have been designed with the logistics industry in mind, offering a maximum lift capacity of 2700 kg,  upto a maximum height of 4 m, and can lift 1400 kg max at 2 m reach or the far side of a lorry.

The JCB 27D 2WD Teletruk is powered by a Perkins 37 kW (50 hp) diesel engine.
The JCB 27G 2WD is powered by a Kubota 46 kW (62 hp) LPG engine.

Our unique telescopic boom offers many benefits including:-

  • Enabling goods to be loaded and unloaded from one side of a lorry bed, saving 50% space within the loading area and eliminating the need for fork extensions, long forks or hydraulic forks.
  • Unrivalled visibility due to its none obstructive mast giving a clear view of staff and customers.
  • 111 degrees of carriage rotation makes handling of unpalletised goods much easier and gives the ability to direct mount a bucket.
  • Access materials stored in the second and third rows in one operation.
  • Loading and unloading into delivery vans more efficiently, reducing material and vehicle damage.
  • Single side loading eliminates the need to travel around the blindside of lorries.

The Teletruk offers typical savings of up to 30% on operating costs compared to a masted forklift truck. This is a result of the typical time, space, and fuel usage savings during single side loading.  

Up to 50% yard loading space can be saved. The rest of the space can be utilised for extra storage capacity and there is also no need to spend extra time repositioning vehicles around work yards.  In addition to space savings made using the telescopic boom, there is no requirements for costly hydraulic fork extentions that are required on standard forklift trucks. 

 The 27 model Teletruks can pick up to 1400 kg from the far side of the lorry bed, a more expensive larger sized standard forklift would be required to move the same amount of materials.


With no mast blocking the view ahead like on conventional forklifts, the Teletruk's unique side boom provides unrivalled forward visibility. Telescopic forward reach allows you to unload lorries from one side so no forklift movement around the other side of the lorry is required, ensuring pedestrians stay safe and separate.

When a delivery truck has to be parked on the roadside, the Teletruk can carry out all unloading from one side so there is no need to travel into the public highway.

As part of EU machinery directive EN15000, our Load Motion Control reduces the possibility of overloading the machine.

Hose burst check valves prevent any loss of pressure in hydraulic cylinders, maintaining the boom in its position and in the unlikely event of a system failure.

The cab structure is both ROPS and FOPS compliant with additional safety features, a front screen guard, optional overhead guard, lap belts fitted as standard and optional speed control.

The 111 degrees of carriage rotation makes handling of goods much easier and safer. The Teletruk can also easily recover tipped or fallen loads, removing the requirement for manual handling.
