JCB 512-56 Loadall Telehandler

May 10, 2018

The JCB 512-56 Loadall telehandler—with a 12,000-pound lift capacity and 56-foot lift height—is now available with a 74-horsepower JCB EcoMAX engine that requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF), no diesel-exhaust fluid (DEF), and, according to the company, "no other engine aftertreatment."

The new 74-horsepower engine, used in the company’s 510-56 telehandler, has a high torque rating, says JCB, and incorporates "enhancements" that increase available power by 14 percent and yield a beneficial gain of 11 percent in the power-to-weight ratio.

The 512-56 Loadall features JCB’s "U-pressed" steel boom that it says has fewer welds than conventional booms and, subsequently, fewer stress points. The machine also features extended service intervals (500 hours) and simplified routine-maintenance procedures, with all daily checks performed at ground level. Maintenance planning is enhanced by the company's available LiveLink telematics system, which provides machine-status information to remote devices.
