JCB launches super compact telehandler
By Lindsey Anderson14 March 2019
JCB has debuted the 504-13 Loadall subcompact telescopic handler in response to growing demand in North America for telehandlers in the sub-6,000 pound category.
With a 4,000-pound lift capacity and maximum lift height of 13 feet, 3 inches, the new JCB 504-13 telehandler is suited for maintenance applications, jobsite clean-up and material handling within confined worksites.
The new 504-13 telehandler builds on the design and capability characteristics of the company’s earlier JCB 520-40 Loadall, with the addition of a new 39 hp Perkins Tier 4 Final-compliant diesel engine.
“JCB is the biggest selling telehandler brand in North America and around the world. Much of our success, especially in North America, extends from our popular, early compact telehandlers,” said Rebecca Yates, product manager for JCB North America.
“And with the compact telehandler market up by about 30 percent this year, it’s an exciting time to add a new subcompact machine to the JCB line-up and further extend the most diverse telehander range in the industry.”
Other features include: All-steel bodywork; Permanent 4-wheel steering for enhanced maneuverability; Low boom profile for exceptional visibility, enabling improved productivity and safety; compact tool carrier or skid steer coupler for attachments to accommodate a wide array of attachments and applications; two-speed hydrostatic transmission and; two-year/2,000-hour warranty.
The 504-13 Loadall features JCB’s unique, U-pressed steel boom with fewer welds and stress points than competing brands. Also unique to JCB Loadall telehandlers are 500-hour extended service intervals and simplified maintenance procedures, with all daily checks performed at ground level.
