JCB’s new Loadall 514-40 telescopic handler brings together more than 45 years of telehandler development to create the smallest overall package, with big machine comfort and capabilities.


At just 1.8m tall and 1.56m wide, the 514-40 has been designed to access the most confined sites. Small enough to fit through a 2m high doorway, the machine delivers unparalleled manoeuvrability with all-wheel steering, making it an ideal telehandler for working in and around the smallest of buildings and farm yards, as well as at farm supply businesses, and in commercial horticulture.


The telehandler is powered by a low maintenance 24.7hp (18.4 kW) diesel engine that meets the EU Stage V emissions standard without the need for a complex Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or any diesel exhaust fluid, minimising operating costs for customers and simplifying operation.


This three-cylinder, 1.1-litre engine, which boasts 66.9Nm of torque, drives through a proven Bosch hydrostatic transmission to a two-speed Linde motor, delivering a maximum travel speed of 10mph (15km/h).


Permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering give the 514-40 all-terrain capabilities synonymous with JCB’s market-leading Loadall range.


The maximum lift capacity is 1,400kg, while maximum lift height is 4.0m, making this an ideal machine for numerous industry sectors; lift capacity at full reach is 525kg.


With an unladen weight of 2,695kg, the machine boasts a 17% higher power-to-weight ratio than the Loadall 516-40. However, the 514-40 newcomer can be transported on a lightweight 3.5-tonne trailer behind a 4×4 or a light commercial vehicle, making it easier, quicker and less expensive to move it between distant work locations.


The full-width operator’s cab is 20% larger than the previous 516-40 and a full 200mm wider than competitor models to provide the operator with a comfortable working environment, while the extensive glazing delivers excellent visibility to all four corners.


The cab will be instantly familiar to operators of other Loadall models, with JCB’s intuitive ergonomic controls making the 514-40 one of the easiest machines to operate.


Standard features include a 50mm tow ball with 7-pin electrics, reversing alarm, road lights, the patented JCB load control system and JCB’s LiveLink Lite telematics system, while options include an LED work light package, and amber and green beacons with an orange seat belt, which can all be protected by JCB’s immobiliser Key Pad.


The 514-40 boasts a new lightweight tool carrier and is capable of working with floating forks or a 0.41cu m bucket, while double-acting auxiliary hydraulics make it possible to operate a range of JCB attachments, increasing the versatility of this compact machine. Customers can also choose between a range of industrial and turf-compatible tyres.
