Heavy-duty axle feet help the JCB 540-140 HiViz Construction telescopic handler to absorb the immense stresses generated during continuous heavy material rehandling applications, while a one-piece, fully welded chassis maximizes strength and minimizes 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 telescopic handler 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 hood 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 540-140 HiViz Construction Loadall telehandler is mounted low in the chassis, providing an extremely rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility.
The new Construction telescopic handler range’s stringent testing program has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use of thousands of cycles.
Optional front and sunroof guards offer additional protection from falling debris.
