  • For added versatility, all JCB TELEHANDLERS are fitted as standard with a single boom auxiliary feature which can power a wide range of attachments.
  • Multiple control patterns are available, for different applications.
  • Choose from wide array of attachments for your different needs.


  • Legendary ‘U’ shaped boom and single closing plate welds to reduce joints and stress points.
  • Boom overlapping, leads to structural rigidity of the boom.
  • Finite element analysis & strain gauging - Ensures maximum strength in high stress areas.
  • Single side plates ensure high strength and rigidity at the core of the machine.
  • Hydraulic extension rams with no chains, better suited for heavy duty bucket applications.
  • The one-piece fully welded chassis maximizes strength and minimizes weight.
  • The lift, tilt and extension rams are held in place by keyhole castings for even greater structural integrity.
  • Proven components- to prove how good our DIESELMAX & ecoMAX engines are, we’ve tested them in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments


A JCB construction Loadall isn’t just efficient to use – it’s hugely efficient to own and operate too. We’ve designed these machines to give you the maximum possible return on your investment.

  • JCB’s own telematics and fleet management system, LiveLink, allows maximum uptime on your machine fleet. Along with tracking machine hours, LiveLink enables you to monitor fuel consumption, service and maintenance alerts. LiveLink also allows you to monitor your DPF regeneration.
  • LiveLink also provides performance reports on idle time, location, machine health, error codes for diagnostics, engine utilisation by power band, safety alerts, and fuel consumption.


Class-leading JCB hydraulics produce fast cycle times, ensuring the most efficient lifting, extending and pushing.

  • A JCB Construction Loadall is extremely manoeuvrable; the compact wheelbase, large steering lock angles and 3 steer modes save valuable time on site.
  • The Stage V DieselMAX engine produces its power and torque at low engine speeds, which makes it highly responsive to operate.
  • The latest Stage V legislation compliant 55kW (75HP) engine from JCB offers a combined DPF/ DOC after treatment package achieving Stage V emissions levels without the need for DEF injection, minimising the impact on machine service and operation.


The 531-70 is designed to provide you with maximum uptime. Our machines are as tough as possible, using top quality components and innovative manufacturing processes.

  • The new Construction Loadall range’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components.
  • We’ve fitted a tough inverted U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, we’ve reduced the number of joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.
  • The boom on a Construction Loadall is mounted low in the one-piece fully welded chassis, providing a very rigid structure and maximum over-the shoulder visibility.


On-site safety is of paramount importance, so the JCB 531-70 construction Loadall has a wealth of features designed to protect themselves, their operators and any bystanders.

  • Our patented load control system and sway frames allows for a safer and more stable load placement, whilst hose burst check valves protect the driver and bystanders in the event of hose failure.
  • To protect fellow workers on the job site, a new reversing camera and pulse radar options are now available on selected models.
  • The low boom profile and pivot point provide unrivalled rearward visibility to obstacles and on site traffic. A full set of side and rear-view mirrors enhance all-round visibility and safety compliance.
