JCB will launch an updated version of its 17 metre/5,400kg 512-56 North American high boom telehandler at the ARA Show later today.
The high capacity telehandler is now equipped with the latest JCB EcoMax engine which does not require a Diesel Particulate Filter, or Ad Blue exhaust fluid, to meet the latest emissions. The company says that this is the only telehandler of this size that does so. It offers 12.8 metres forward reach at which it can handle more than 1,550kg with stabilisers set. Overall width is 2.5 metres and the unit weighs just under 14 tonnes. A choice of cabs from open to fully enclosed is available.
The show opens at 9:30 today US Pacific standard time.
