What is a compact telehandler?

Compact telehandlers are the ultimate multi-taskers: smaller models with real versatility and manoeuvrability. Thanks to their size, they're ideal for getting into those tight spaces on size-critical applications - so are heavily relied on in the construction, agriculture and landscaping industries, or any site where you need to move in and around close buildings.

A compact design also means less weight, so these machines are easily towed by a pickup truck and trailer. And while they may not reach the same heights as the full-size models, they still deliver on telehandler lifting capacity capacity - again proving themselves as a real all-rounder.

JCB's complete range of compact telehandlers includes the compact-yet-comfortable 514-40; the all-electric 525-60E; the manoeuvrable 520-40 and the hi-viz 525-60. Plus, these versatile machines also have counterparts dedicated to agricultural applications - the agri 516-40, 520-40 and 525-60.
