JCB continues its momentum in the North American telehandler market with yet another debut for the market. The company used Bauma to take the wraps off its new 540-140 HiViz – a high-visibility, low-boom-pivot telehandler.

The 540-140 HiViz offers near an 8,500-pound maximum lift capacity with a maximum lift height of 44.2 feet on wheels, or 45.2 feet when using stabilizers. The HiViz machine is equipped with a choice of Tier 4 Final diesel engines.

The 540-140 HiViz Loadall has the lowest boom mounting in its class, up to 9.25 inches lower than the standard 540-140. The boom section has been reduced by 13 percent and a more compact rear chassis has reduced overhang by 13 inches. Hydraulic performance is closely matched with the engine’s output, while lift performance has been tailored to the machine’s stability, both when working on wheels and with the stabilizers down.

The 540-140 HiViz telescopic handler is powered by JCB’s proven EcoMAX diesel engine. Customers can also choose a 74-hp version that meets the latest engine emission standards with no requirement for a diesel particulate filter (DPF) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

For those who require additional power, there are 108-hp and 125-hp versions of the EcoMAX engine that use JCB’s one-can SCR solution with no DPF. The Selective Catalytic Reduction unit, which uses a urea-based additive to reduce NOx emissions, is incorporated into a single exhaust muffler, replacing the existing exhaust box.

JCB’s ergonomic single lever control (SLC) is available as an option. A dry lubricant system delivers extremely durable boom wear pad life, with service intervals of 500 hours.

The 540-140 HiViz will be offered with a number of attachments. There will be a choice of aerial work platform options, including a platform-ready specification, that operators can use with the Loadall to maximize utilization and versatility. All Loadall models are provided with JCB LiveLink telematics. The new model will be available to the North American market later this year.
