JCB is introducing the 514-40, its smallest Loadall telehandler to date, with a cab height of 1.8m and a width of 1.56m.

The compact machine benefits from the largest operator’s cab in the class, says the company. The unit is small enough to fit through a 2m high doorway and delivers all-wheel steering, making it an ideal for materials suppliers, landscapers, event organisers and construction rental businesses.

Powered by a 18.4 kW diesel engine, the model meets the EU Stage V emissions standard without the need for a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or any diesel exhaust fluid. This three-cylinder, 1.1-litre engine, which boasts 66.9Nm of torque, drives through a Bosch hydrostatic transmission to a two-speed Linde motor, delivering a maximum travel speed of 15km/h.

With permanent four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering, the 514-40 is also designed to offer the all-terrain capabilities found across the Loadall range.

The maximum lift capacity is 1,400kg, while maximum lift height is set at 4.0m, making this an ideal machine for numerous industry sectors. Lift capacity at full reach is set at 525kg. With an unladen weight of 2,695kg, the machine boasts a 17% higher power-to-weight ratio than the previous 516-40 Loadall. However, the 514-40 can be transported on a lightweight 3.5-tonne trailer behind a 4x4 or a light commercial vehicle, making it easier, quicker and less expensive to deliver to site for a rental company, a contractor or a weekend DIYer.

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

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 telematic system. Options include an LED work light package, amber and green beacons with an orange seat belt, which can all be protected by JCB’s immobiliser Key Pad.

The 514-40 also features a new lightweight tool carrier and is capable of working with floating forks or a 0.41m3 bucket. Double-acting auxiliary hydraulics make it possible to operate with a range of JCB attachments, and customers can also choose between a range of industrial and turf-compatible tyres.
