Every JCB telehandler is designed to offer superb productivity, and the 505-20TC telehandler is no different.

Excellent visibility and maneuverability, versatile performance, potent power and innovation-driven efficiency are all part of the package.



Despite the compact footprint, the JCB 505-20TC Loadall has a large, spacious cab with a wide access door.

  • A full size cab ensures the operator benefits from a spacious working environment.  
  • Air conditioning is available for all cabs, ensuring maximum comfort throughout the day.
  • Controlling a JCB 505-20TC is also comfortable, precise and smooth using single lever electro servo controls with proportional auxiliaries.


The 505-20TC Loadall is equipped with a potent JCB diesel by Kohler engine that produces 221 lb-ft of torque at just 1500rpm.

  • Because it produces peak levels of torque at revs as low as 1500rpm, this engine can provide fuel-efficient matching of the transmission and hydraulics.
  • For excellent traction and performance in difficult conditions, we’ve fitted the JCB 505-20TC telehandler with 4WD as standard.
  • A limited-slip differential is available for maximum traction on slippery surfaces.


A low height of 6 feet 2 inches and a narrow width of 6 feet enables the 505-20TC to access the very smallest operating environments.

  • 2-speed transmission allows you to select high and low speeds. The low speed setting complies with building site speed regulations, while high speed is ideal for roading.
  • Your telehandler operators can maneuver quickly and easily with directional shuttle changes possible via either the shuttle lever on the steering column or the joystick-mounted shuttle switch.


On site safety is of paramount importance, so the 505-20TC has a wealth of features designed to protect itself, it's operators and any bystanders. It's also equipped with a comprehensive security package.

  • JCB LiveLink now has the ability to monitor seatbelt usage, to ensure operators are safe when operating the machine.
  • All-round visibility is superb via the large roof screen, opening rear window and fold-back upper door.
  • Hose burst check valves (HBCVs) help to protect the rams from collapse in the event of a hose failure.
