There’s a tough U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, there are large boom overlaps of up to 1.0m; we’ve also reduced joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate. Hydraulic hoses are intelligently routed through the boom for maximum protection; the side engine bonnet is recessed to guard against site damage; and rear lights fold up to keep them clear and well protected from damage. The JCB 527-58’s T4F/Stage IV engine builds on the tried-and-proven success of the JCB EcoMAX platform. Since its launch, we’ve achieved over 200,000 hours of testing across the toughest applications and environments. Because we make our own hydraulic rams, cabs, axles, transmissions and engines, every element of JCB telescopic handlers works in perfect harmony. From your point of view, that means optimum reliability and performance. To meet European demand, JCB is introducing a range of Rockinger Hitches. The new AGRI Loadall range’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles. We use state-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques to achieve the very highest levels of quality.
