The smallest telehandler in our range, the JCB 516-40 is also one of the most innovative telehandlers in the world. Put simply, it’s a skid steer, wheeled loading shovel and forklift all in one compact telehandler package.
This small telehandler achieves its extraordinary versatility because of JCB’s revolutionary offset single-spine chassis. Core strength is under the boom and the chassis wraps around the cab, meaning the 516-40 cab can be mounted lower than normal. That means the whole machine sits lower (1.8m) for improved manoeuvrability and easier, safer cab access. Crucially, we haven’t had to reduce the cab size or performance to achieve these benefits.
So from greenhouses to multi-storey car parks, rental lots and smallholdings, the 516-40 Loadall is at home (OK, hard at work) anywhere.
To achieve the very highest levels of quality on our telehandlers, we use state-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining and precision paint technology, as well as innovative assembly techniques.
The new JCB Loadall range’s stringent testing programme has included prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, boom and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles.
A one-piece fully welded chassis maximises strength and minimises weight. There are also large boom overlaps of up to 0.5m; the hydraulic cylinders have friction-welded eye-ends for extra strength; and all pivots use hardened pins.
You can be assured of long-term corrosion protection on a 516-40 Loadall because all JCB cabs are dipped in electrophoretic alloy before the painting process begins.
All of the hydraulic hoses on the JCB 516-40 telescopic handler are intelligently routed through the boom, affording them maximum protection against damage.
The 516-40 telehandler’s single-lever joystick controls with proportional auxiliaries are quick and easy to use, offering precise control. The auxiliary service has an adjustable constant flow, allowing operators to programme their desired flow rate for operating attachments.
Visibility is excellent for such a compact telescopic handler; there’s a large roof screen and optional front and rear work lights. Control switches are ergonomically laid-out and backlit for easy recognition and good visibility at night.
You have a choice of cab – with or without air conditioning – to equip the 516-40 Loadall for any climate. Whichever cab you choose, you’ll find it large and spacious, with a wide-opening door for easy access.
Standard-fit tinted cab glass reflects 30% of the sun’s energy for increased operator comfort.
During operation, the upper portion of this telehandler’s stable-style door can be folded back to allow increased airflow into the cab.
There’s a choice of seating options to tailor your JCB 516-40 Loadall to operator requirements in different applications. Operators can work to their choice of soundtrack with our optional-fit radio speaker.
JCB’s Adaptive Load Control system automatically prevents your 516-40 Loadall from overturning forwards during heavy load handling.
Bystanders are safeguarded by our standard-fit reversing alarm.
The JCB 516-40 Loadall has hose burst check valves (HBCVs) to protect the rams from collapse in the event of a hose failure.
A seat safety switch disables forward/reverse if the operator isn’t seated.
For added peace of mind, this telehandler’s cab is ROPS (Rollover Protection System) and FOPS (Falling Objects Protection System) certified, keeping its operator protected at all times.
Cesar is a simple and effective method of machine identification and registration operated across the UK and Ireland by the Police. JCB fully supports the initiative and offers it as a factory fit across our full UK range of machines.
All daily checks and grease points are easily located at ground level on the JCB 516-40 Loadall.
Every filter is simple to access for fast, easy servicing on your JCB Loadall; the air filter features a double-element construction to aid cleaning.
The battery is located under the bonnet and it’s accessible using only the ignition key, with no special tools required.
Filling the diesel tank of your 516-40 is straightforward and can be done from ground level.
JCB wear pads use a dry lubricant system which prolongs degradation and, therefore, service life. Accordingly, wear pad service intervals are 500 hours, compared with 250 hours on typical competitor telehandlers.
