For quick, easy and safe access, the JCB 550-80 has a three-point access.
Hose burst check valves on the rams prevent collapse if a hose fails, and JCB Adaptive Load Control system is automatically activated to control the boom functions to help maintain the longitudinal stability of your 550-80 Loadall.
The seat safety switch on the 550-80 disables forward and reverse when an operator leaves their seat; this prevents inadvertent operation.
A JCB 550-80 comes equipped with a full set of side and rear view mirrors for all round visibility and safety compliance. For extra safety, a reverse alarm is standard-fit too.
Our Loadall security system is Thatcham-approved (depending on territory). It comprises a Cesar Datatag (on UK vehicles), a JCB Livelink telematics vehicle tracker, and an immobiliser. Besides providing peace of mind, these measures can also reduce insurance premiums.
The 550-80’s factory-fit immobiliser arms itself after a certain period following engine shutdown. Choose your activation method from a unique key or 4-digit keypad.
The immobiliser on a 550-80 Loadall always synchronises with the ECU before starting the engine, providing increased theft protection.
Backlit switches are clearly visible, even at night or in low visibility.
