Tier 4 compact telehandler
By Chris Sleight03 February 2014
JCB’s ConExpo-Con/Agg launches will include the 525-60 brings compact telehandler. With a maximum lift height of 6 m and a load capacity of 2.5 tonnes, the 525-60 is just 1.8 m wide and 1.91 m high, allowing access to multi-storey car parks and permitting operation in confined site conditions.
The 525-60 Hi-Viz replaces the 524-50, 527-55 and the 520-50 rear-engined models, with a side-engine mount design. This permits a low boom pivot point for improved stability and increased visibility to the rear and across the boom.
Powered by a new Tier 4 Final, 2.5-litre, JCB Diesel by Kohler four-cylinder engine, the 525-60 delivers 55 kW for easy lifting performance and travel speeds of up to 25 km/h.
Depending on territory, the machine can be supplied with JCB’s LiveLink telematic monitoring system.
The company will also be launching a new, Tier 4-compliant rough terrain fork lift range at the show. Fitted with the manufacturer’s new, 55 kW Ecomax diesel engine, the 926, 930, 940 and 950 fork lift models boast improved fuel consumption, with lifting capacities of between 2.6 tonnes and 4.5 tonnes, with maximum lift heights of between 3.6m and 6.7m.
