  • Floating forks are incorporated into the frame.
  • Compatible with both single and dual-aux machines.

  • Side Shift (from centre) 167mm
  • Lift Capacity 4000kg
  • Fork Positioning 299 - 1013mm
540-140 Stage V Loadall with Precision Placer - forks in the central position


The new Precision Placer encourages less machine movements with fork positioning from 299mm to 1013mm, increasing productivity, safety and reducing fuel consumption.

  • Handling different sized materials with one attachment increases efficiency on site.
  • Switch between fork positioning and side shift from within the cab (with dual-aux) encourages a higher level of safety, limiting the time spent out of the cab.


Alongside fork positioning, the Precision Placer has side shifting capabilities of up to 167mm from the centre point, increasing versatility across a range of applications.

  • Up to 334mm side shift from left to right.
  • Encourages less machine movements, as the operator does not have to reposition if placed incorrectly.
  • With more precise movements and increased operator accuracy, overall site safety is improved also.
  • Allows for safer lifting and handling of materials, as the operator can side shift the load to the centre of the frame before moving and retracting the boom.


JCB's design has an improved centre of gravity, meaning no compromise on performance or 4,000kg lift capacity.

  • The compact design means the attachment is kept within the frame, ensuring little impact on visibility from inside the cab.
  • Improved design over our existing fork positioner, and has been developed to work in perfect harmony with your 540-140 Loadall.
