Teletruk 30 LPG forklift

The TLT30 counterbalance forklift is a strong and exceptionally versatile performer weighing up to 5380 kg. These industrial forklifts have a choice of diesel (30D 2x4) or LPG (30G 2x4) engines, High Lift (30D HL 2x4) model and even 4WD (30D 4x4).

Their maximum lift capacity is 3,000 kg with maximum lift height of 5.15m and a maximum forward reach of 3.32m.

The High Lift model is powered by the new Tier 4/Stage IIIB JCB Diesel by Kohler 46kW (62HP) engine. The JCB 30D 2wd and 4wd are powered by the Perkins 37 kW (50 HP) diesel engine. The 30G is powered by the GM 43 kW (57 HP) LPG engine.

Our unique telescopic boom offers many benefits. Unrivalled visibility is achieved by the Teletruk’s side arm, which means there is no obstructive mast, improving site safety. The machine’s forward reach gives the ability to load from a single side, reducing double-handling and keeping operators clear of hazardous environments. As a result, 50% less loading space is required which is welcome in congested yards. 111 degrees of carriage rotation makes handing unpalletised goods much easier and safer.

Every effort has been made to enhance the ergonomics of the Teletruk, ensuring superb operator comfort throughout the working day and enabling you to get the maximum productivity out of this uniquely versatile machine.

The controls themselves are ergonomically designed with everything in easy reach and a display that is clearly viewed in any light. The JCB Teletruk also features a multifunctional control lever.

The Teletruk offers several cab choices, from simple canopy to fully glazed and low cab option, providing the most comfortable working conditions whatever the climate or conditions.


The JCB TLT30 has productivity built in due to Telescopic boom.

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 of single loading.

Up to 50% yard loading space can be saved. The rest of the space can be utilised for other duties and there is no need to spend extra time repositioning vehicles around work yards. 

Using a big bag shovel, loose aggregates can be bagged on demand saving time off loading pre-bagged materials and space from bulk bag storage.

The Teletruk can often do the work of five machines on site - a Conventional Masted Forklift Truck, Skid Steer Loader, Compact Telescopic Handler, Rough Terrain Forklift and a Compact Wheeled Loader. This could reduce your fleet holding operational running costs.

The counterbalance forklift also benefits from a fast, easy attachment changing system; switching between attachments can be done in under 30 seconds, from inside the cab, using the JCB Changezee, saving both time and fleet operational costs.


JCB Industrial has designed a range of four Teletruk forklifts specifically for use in the Builder Merchants sector. JCB has worked closely with the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) to develop the four machines, all of which incorporates an improved list of standard equipment. The machines are the first from any supplier member company to proudly display the BMF logo.

The four Teletruks include the 30DTCR 2wd, 30D4x4, the 35DTCR 2wd and the 35D4x4. The machines benefit from a fully enclosed hydrostatic drive system and the choice of two-and four-wheel drive makes the compact load handlers ideal for both well surfaced yards and rougher site conditions, that would be unsuitable for a conventional fork lift truck. 

The JCB Teletruk enables you to fill, stack and load out flexible ‘Big bags’, in a simple and efficient one man operation.


With no mast blocking the view ahead as 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 Adaptive Load Control in conjunction with the Load Moment Indicator (L.M.I) system allows the load to be managed safely and 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.

Getting into and out of the JCB Teletruk is also safe and easy, thanks to the wide step and large grip handle.


Forklift Trucks need to spend the maximum amount of time hard at work. We've designed the Teletruk to do just that, with long service intervals and quality components.

Ground-level access to all the major components and service interval checks is quick and easy through the side-opening door and tilting cab.

There are no excuses for daily checks not to be carried out due to the excellent access through the service side door. Teletruk's battery can be easily accessed without the need for special tools. 

A fully enclosed hydrostatic drive system eliminates common exposed drive shaft and external brake problems.

For additional peace of mind, the JCB Teletruk comes with two-year, 3000 hours JCB Warranty as standard.
