JCB announced that its 512-56 Loadall telescopic handler is now available with a 74 hp JCB EcoMAX engine, making it the world’s first 12,000 lb telehandler that requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF), no diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and no other engine aftertreatment.
The new 74 hp 512-56 telehandler uses the proven high-torque 74 hp JCB EcoMAX engine from the company’s popular 510-56 telehandler, with enhancements to achieve 14 percent more available power and an 11 percent increase in power-to-weight ratio.
“The 74-horsepower version of the 512-56 Loadall is the perfect machine for rental operations and large construction projects. It is the only machine on the market that can offer such impressive lift height and capacity without the operating costs and hassle of engine aftertreatment and regeneration,” said Andrea Whelan, vice president for direct sales at JCB North America. “And with JCB telehandlers commanding the highest resale values on the market, the 512-56 Loadall telehandler has the potential to boost profits and productivity, especially for fleet buyers.”
The 512-56 Loadall features JCB’s unique U-pressed steel boom that requires fewer welds and results in fewer stress points, further enhancing the strength and durability of the machine. Also unique to JCB Loadall telehandlers are the 500-hour extended service intervals and simplified maintenance procedures, with all daily checks performed at ground level. Maintenance planning is enhanced by JCB’s available LiveLink telematics system, which provides machine status information to remote devices.
JCB pioneered the telescopic handler in 1977 and is the world’s leading manufacturer, with more than 250,000 units sold worldwide. The 512-56 Loadall adds to the growing range of 15 Loadall telehandler models for the construction and rental industries—eight tool carriers (TC) and seven lift-and-place machines—with lift capacities ranging from 5,500 lb to 14,000 lb and lift heights from 20 feet to 66 feet.
