JCB has launched its first rotating telehandler.

The Hydraload 555-210R is in response to the growth in popularity of rotating machines with heavier lift capacities across Europe and is the first in a new series. It offers a maximum lift capacity of 5.5 tonnes and maximum working height of 20.5m.

To minimise set up time, the outriggers have Auto one-touch deployment, stowage and levelling. Competitive lift end cycle times and high auxiliary flow rates for efficient winch work, boost productivity further, says the manufacturer.

The model also offers a lower chassis engine layout and a high level of visibility. A low boom design also provides all-round visibility, along with comprehensive work light options and camera kits, including a boom head camera for precise placement at height.

The JCB Hydraload will initially be introduced in Europe.

The machines are powered by JCB’s Ecomax engines, offering parts and service commonality with other Loadall models. The JCB LiveLink telematics system is fitted as standard.

Easily selectable lift end speed profiles and lift envelope limits help the operator to optimise the machine for specific tasks. A range of specially developed JCB attachments using RFID technology can be identified by the machine, to automatically offer the correct load chart for safe operation.

There are a range of available attachments; a 5.5 tonne carriage winch, a 2 tonne x 2m jib winch, a reduced height jib, 5.5 tonne hook, light duty buckets and a range of fork-mounted accessories, such as waste skips and concrete placing skips. Remote lift end operation and access platforms will also be offered.

“Rotating telescopic handlers have become a genuine cost-effective replacement for smaller mobile cranes, offering rapid set-up and the ability to carry out technical lifting operations,” said the manufacturer.
