JCB Offers New Options for Telehandlers

March 28, 2019

JCB is offering new options on Loadall lift-and-place telescopic handlers offered in North America. The new options include:

  • Positive air shut-off

  • Extra mirror package

  • Rear view camera package

  • Arctic kit

  • Non-marking tires

The machine’s new positive air shut-off (PASO) option is designed to shut the engine down if flammable materials are detected, to protect the operator and the machine. This feature is common in the energy sector where telehandlers may work in proximity of natural gas, propane, or other flammable materials. Extra mirrors and a rear back-up camera are also available. The mirror package includes a mirror for the boom nose, rear chassis, and engine side, and can be retrofitted to existing machines.

JCB now offers non-marking, semi-solid tires for compact and lift-and-place telehandlers, including larger machines up to 14,000 pound lift capacity. The tires are grey in color, and are less likely than conventional black rubber tires to leave tire marks on prepared surfaces.

The JCB Arctic kit enables the telehandler to start and operate in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit. The kit includes a hydraulic tank heater, cold-temperate electronic harness and hoses, battery heater, etc. The package is a factory-fit on 74 hp and 109 models.
