Introduced in early 2008, JCB's new range of high boom Loadall telehandlers boast fast cycle times and high lift capacities. Those new telehandlers, the Loadall 506-36 and the 507-42, can lift 6,000 to 7,000 pounds and have a working height of 36 to 42 feet. A third machine, the 509-42, can handle even more with a capacity of 9,000 pounds. Finally, the 510-56 has a 10,000-pound lift capacity and lift height of 56 feet. Each unit is powered by a JCB Dieselmax engine, which is EPA and CARB compliant. The new models improve over their predecessors thanks to rear-axle stabilization, powershift transmission, servo controls, and side engine for easy access. Estimated list price: $60,000 to $100,000.
