WORLD-LEADING INNOVATION & PERFORMANCE

The demands placed on agricultural machines are extreme: more extensive farms mean more distance to travel and more time spent in the cab carrying out more diverse tasks. The JCB Loadall gives – and keeps on giving – you more. Part of the JCB agricultural range, the 10 Loadall models (more than any other manufacturer) build on our heritage in agriculture and the experience gained since we pioneered the telescopic handler concept in 1977.

The result is a solution to fit every need and every size operation, all designed specifically for agriculture, not adapted from construction. Superb productivity comes from the powerful engines and hydraulics, with cutting-edge JCB innovation to boost performance even further. Fast travel speeds, a wide range of attachments, luxurious comfort and effortless control for day long working. The Loadall is the perfect partner for your tractor.


Ultimate maneuverability fast facts

JCB 515-40 compact loadalls n The most compact dimensions and outstanding maneuverability enable fast operation in restricted areas n Central cab position and low offset boom give outstanding all-round vision n Telescopic lift and reach performance provides for great loading capability n 4-cylinder engines offer optimum performance and high power-to-weight ratios n Hydrostatic transmission provides ‘big’ pushing power and excellent controllability

You want productivity and performance, you want go anywhere compact dimensions and you want a machine that will get you into the smallest of places. Before, all this meant using a skid steer for maneuverability, a wheeled loader for lift capacity and forklift for lift height, but not anymore. The JCB 515-40 does all the tasks of these other machines and gives the versatility of a telescopic handler to a whole new range of customers. So how does the 515-40 do all these things? One word… innovation. Everything hangs on our revolutionary single spine chassis, which has its strength under the boom and wraps around the cab and engine. This allows us to position the cab lower, providing three key benefits. First, the whole machine is low, only 5ft 11in tall. Second, to achieve that overall height, we didn’t have to shrink the cab, so there is no compromise on operator comfort. And third, cab entry is now at ground level, providing easy step in, step out access. Despite ultra-compact dimensions, the 515-40 packs a real punch. Based on customer feedback we know that you want compact dimensions and high performance. So the 515-40 delivers both, it can lift 3300 lbs to a height of 13ft 2in, and lift 1650 lbs with 8 ft of forward reach, this allows you to load a truck from one side.

The 515-40 gets you into places where no telescopic has gone before, poultry sheds, greenhouses, poly tunnels, nurseries, fruit farms, vineyards and landscaping yards. The 515-40 is the revolution we have all been waiting for. The 515-40 gives bucket performance comparable to a skid steer or compact wheel loader. Plus, 4 individual hydraulic wheel motors and 4WS equal outstanding traction and maneuverability into and out of the tightest of corners, around pillars and through doorways. Whether you stay on concrete or take the 515-40 off road the 4WD ensure the machine is always up to the task. The hydrostatic transmission provides equal power to all 4 wheels. Add in easy operation, infinite speed control and class leading fuel economy, and you have the winning formula for power, performance, productivity and versatility. Thanks to the design of the chassis, JCB has been able to fit a full size cab while maintaining a very low height. This makes the interior spacious and the all round visibility superb. The split door allows the operator to shut out unpleasant conditions or open the top half to improve ventilation. And side access provides safe ground level entry and exit.

Working in conjunction with an engine-mounted torque converter, a gear change lever with a transmission disconnect button allows smooth gear changes to be made on the move. Each gear is matched to the engine characteristics for maximum torque in all applications. A powered reverser allows for smooth forward and reverse gear changes to be made while moving. The 527-58 is equipped with a step-less transmission, that allows the operator can accelerate from zero to 20 mph without changing gear giving rapid acceleration and productivity. For those applications where speed needs to be limited, a dashboard mounted switch limits the maximum speed available to 6 mph, aiding loader performance and pushing power, ideal for bucket work. For controllability, the optional Vari-Speed, creep mode with hand throttle enables forward speed and engine rpm to be controlled independently which allows the operator to control the machine speed while maintaining engine rpm.

the machine driving through the front axle only, transmission and tire wear are reduced. four-wheel drive is automatically reengaged when braking to maintain excellent stopping power through both axles.

hydraulics JCB Loadalls are world renowned for their hydraulic power. This is due to the combination of pressure and flow from the pump and the boom geometry – designed to maximize power where you need it – in break-out applications, and also give you fast response during loading work. A full powershift transmission is fitted as standard on 536-60, 541 70 and 535-95 Loadalls. Powershift enables ‘twistgrip’ gear changes to be made quickly and easily, even under load for maximum productivity, especially in heavy pushing applications such as manure loading. The 541-70 Agri Xtra machine is fitted with a JCB six speed powershift transmission, which is controlled by an electronic control unit (ECU). When operating in fifth gear, the transmission will automatically select sixth once a pre-set speed is reached, bypassing the torque converter and giving direct drive for greater roading and towing performance. Limited slip differentials (LSDs) prevent loss of traction in slippery conditions and ensure maximum drive to the wheels is maintained by progressively transferring up to 75% of the available torque to the non-slipping wheel automatically. The LSD is standard on the 536-60, 541-70 and 535-95 and optional on all other models. In order to improve transport performance further, 536-60, 541-70 and 535-95 Agri Loadalls are available with a four-wheel drive disconnect switch. With

Fixed displacement hydraulic gear pumps are fitted to the 51540, 520-40, 524-50, 527-55, 526-56 and 527-58. This simple, reliable technology provides instant response and long service life. The 536-60, 541-70 and 535-95 have Variflo piston pump hydraulics featuring maximum flow of 37 gallons per minute to the boom. The load-sensing valve provides an effective flow sharing system, allowing simultaneous operation of functions for faster loading cycles. All Agri Loadalls, except the 515-40 and 520-40, are equipped as standard with a single lever, servo, joystick. The joystick is mounted to the cab and falls easily to the operators hand and because it is servo assisted it requires very little effort from the operator, reducing operator fatigue during long days on the farm. The seat-mounted servo joystick, on 541-70 Agri Xtra, gives operators low lever effort, precise control of boom functions and improved comfort. All Agri Loadalls are fitted with a single auxiliary service as standard.

smooth ride The JCB Smooth Ride System is a unique, patented boom suspension system, exclusive to JCB Loadalls. The system works through a pair of gas accumulators mounted directly onto the lift ram, still incorporating the hose burst check valve in the system for safety. The accumulators allow the boom and load to move independently of the chassis, effectively damping the forces imposed on the machine as it travels over uneven ground.

The 515-40, 520-40, 524-50 and 527-55 come standard with a multi-lever joystick arrangement: the main lever controls lift and tilt functions, while two other levers are for boom extend and auxiliary functions. JCB 526-56 cab interior

A single lever servo joystick is standard on 526-56, 527-54 53660, 541-70 and 535-95 and optional on 524-50 and 527-55. All hydraulics services are controlled with the servo joystick, this reduces lever effort and allows proportional control of all the hydraulic functions. This system gives excellent feedback to the operator for precise, reliable operation.

The key benefits of SRS pare better load retention, either when handling loose materials such as feed in a bucket, or when carrying bales in a grab. Operator comfort is improved on the road and in the field, particularly over longer cycles on uneven terrain, such as traveling across rows when loading bales in the field. These benefits allow operation at higher speeds resulting in greater overall machine productivity. The Smooth Ride System also reduces considerably the forces imposed on the machine during transport and work cycles, resulting in less stress on components and even longer machine life. SRS is standard on all Agri Plus and Agri Xtra models.
