Reach and boom information

The JCB 540-180 has a 4,000 kg max payload, a 17.51m max lift height and a maximum forward reach of 10.47m.  Like the sister vehicles in this range, the class-leading JCB hydraulics produce the fastest cycle times available.  Thus ensuring the most efficient lifting, extending and pushing available in a construction telescopic handler.

Marketing leading JCB engineering ensures a tough boom design for maximum workload and site safety, with a large boom overlap of over 1m.  In addition, hoses are routed through the boom structure for maximum protection.

Site versatility

As the first vehicle onto to site and the last to leave, the construction telehandler needs to be a workhorse displaying engine efficiency, maximum productivity and excellent manoeuvrability.  With the JCB 540 range, you’ve got just that.

This machine has a 10% reduced turning circle versus the 540-170 and it is also 1000kg lighter, thanks to a shortened chassis and lightweight boom sections.  All this means that the 540-180 HiViz is one of the most manoeuvrable machines around.

Like the other vehicles in the range, it comes with the three easily interchangeable JCB steering modes and 4WD as standard.  Four-wheel steer for optimum manoeuvrability, two-wheel steer for road efficiency and crab steer for nimble and close contact work.

For added simplicity and ease of use, the new Stage V JCB 430 Dieselmax engine only has DPF/DOC after treatment, minimising cost and complexity for the operator.

The JCB 540-180 HiViz telehandler comes with pallet forks and is JCB quickhitch enabled.  Additional attachments are available, ask our hire team for information.

Operator comfort

The cab on the JCB 540-180 is intuitive and comfortable to operate.  Designed to provide the most ergonomic operator environment on the market.  In fact, tests show, it reduces operator fatigue by 8% and in turn, raises concentration levels and site safety.  This is through the advent of JCB’s single-level control function.

The unique selling point of the HiViz Loadall range is that visibility is excellent, courtesy of direct glazing, a large roof screen, standard-fit tinted cab glass and a low mounted boom.

All this and more makes it the most comfortable telehandler cab available.

All ASHBROOK telehandlers are supplied with JCB Livelink technology.  Therefore, ensuring the best customer service for our customers.
