531-70

The JCB 531-70 Loadall is the smallest of our full-sized telescopic handler machines. It’s a hugely efficient Dieselmax-powered Loadall sitting on a chassis that’s designed for load-bearing and stability.

The side-mounted JCB engine combines with JCB axles and transmission to ensure a reliable drivetrain performance from well-proven telescopic loader components.

This telescopic handler also has instant steering selection between three modes for easy operation, a tight turn radius and great manoeuvrability.

  • 3.7m max forward reach
  • 3.7m outer turn radius over tyres
  • Mechanical joystick, direct acting hydraulic control levers
  • 3.7m max reach with a 1000 kg load
  • 82 l/min max hydraulic flow
  • 6.3m placing height
  • An auto regeneration strategy enables maximum productivity

Heavy-Duty Axle

Heavy-duty axle feet help the JCB 531-70 Construction Loadall telehandler to absorb the immense stresses generated during continuous heavy material rehandling applications, while a one-piece fully welded chassis maximises strength and minimises weight.  

There’s a tough U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, there are large boom overlaps of up to 1.0m; we’ve also reduced joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.  

To provide long-term corrosion protection, we dip JCB Construction Loadall cabs in electrophoretic ally prior to painting. Keyhole castings hold the tilt and extension rams in place to further improve overall structural integrity.  

Hydraulic hoses are intelligently routed through the boom for maximum protection; the bonnet is side-mounted, which protects it from site damage; and rear lights fold up to keep them clear and well protected from damage when working on site.  

The boom on a JCB 531-70 Construction Loadall telehandler is mounted low in the chassis, providing an extremely rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility.  

The new Construction Loadall range’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles.  

Optional front and top screen roof guards offer additional protection from falling debris.







MANOEUVRABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

  • Forward reach of 3.7 metres, lift capacity 3.1 tonnes and lift height of 7 metres, all improve productive capability.
  • The JCB 531-70 telescopic handler uses a combination of individual hydraulic wheel motors and four-wheel steer for superb manoeuvrability.
  • Good ground clearance and four wheel drive make excellent progress in any conditions or terrain.
  • Hydrostatic transmission for easy operation, infinite speed variations and great fuel efficiency.
  • The side mounted JCB engine combined with JCB axles and transmission, ensure reliable drive train performance from well proven components.
  • Powershift transmission allows on the move gear changes for faster cycle times and quicker travelling.
  • Low centre of gravity and long wheelbase increase stability, for both roading and load placing.

SAFETY

  • Among the many safety features load hold check valves are fitted to boom and carriage hydraulic functions.
  • A load moment indicator within the cab gives a progressive readout of the machines forward stability.
  • Neutral start ensures drive is disconnected before the engine can be started. Drive is also disconnected when hand brake is engaged.
  • All round visibility allowed by low boom line gives the operator greater confidence to move quickly and safely.
  • Audio and visual warnings give rapid driver feedback on engine and transmission status.

SERVICEABILITY AND DURABILITY

  • The one-piece bonnet is on a gas strut for ease and safety; the radiator chaff guard and reversing fan keeps out debris; the fold-out cooling package is easy to clean, as is the flat floor with drainage channels; and most service intervals, including boom lubrication, are a lengthy 500 hours.
  • Every JCB telescopic loader has a one-piece fully welded chassis for maximum strength and minimum weight.
  • Hoses are routed through the boom and lights fold away to protect against site damage.
  • The U-shaped boom with integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate has reduced joints and stress points.

Unrivalled Productivity

The backlit switches on a JCB 531-70 Loadall telehandler are crystal clear, even in the dark. And new instruments and a hi-res TFT screen form an intuitive automotive-style layout.  

To create the perfect driving position, opt for the easily adjustable tilting telescopic steering column.  

A 7-speed fan heater creates the most comfortable, productive operator environment on board this telescopic handler.  

Visibility is excellent, courtesy of direct glazing, a large roof screen and standard-fit tinted cab glass.  

Roof bars are strategically placed for maximum visibility when placing at height. Choose cab, front and rear lights for ultimate visibility.  

There are new single lever controls fitted to our latest Loadall range, including the 531-70. This innovation reduces operator fatigue by 8%, raising concentration levels and site safety.

UNRIVALLED COST OF OWNERSHIP

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.

The latest Stage V legislation compliant 55kw (75kw) 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.

JCB’s own telematics and fleet management system, LiveLink, allows you to keep abreast of 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 allows you to keep track of your machine’s daily activity with regular performance reports which provide information about idle time, location, machine health, error codes for diagnostics, engine utilisation by power band, safety alerts, and fuel consumption. JCB LiveLink ensures machines are kept running for maximum uptime and return on investment.

UNRIVALLED PRODUCTIVITY

CLASS-LEADING JCB HYDRAULICS PRODUCE FAST CYCLE TIMES, ENSURING THE MOST EFFICIENT LIFTING, EXTENDING AND PUSHING.

The unique regenerative hydraulic system, part of JCB’s SMART Technology package, harnesses gravitational forces, diverting oil back to the rams while the arm is lowering.

A JCB Construction Loadall is extremely manoeuvrable; the compact wheelbase, large steering lock angles and 3 steer modes save valuable time on site.

The JCB EcoMAX and new Stage V DieselMAX engine produces its power and torque at low engine speeds, which makes it highly responsive to operate.

UNRIVALLED STRENGTH AND DURABILITY

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.

 

UNRIVALLED SAFETY AND SECURITY

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 screen is dash mounted and cameras can be mounted to rear and offside for full visibility around the machine.

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.
