JCB’s construction range of Loadall telescopic handlers for European markets are now available with Stage V compliant engines. From the 531-70 through to the 540-200, the full line of machines can be powered by the JCB 448 DieselMAX engine, delivering 81kW (109hp).
Key features include:
·Stage V engines with no requirement for EGR
·Auto engine stop reduces fuel consumption and excessive idling hours
·Four types of regeneration to reduce downtime
·Machine dimensions unchanged
JCB has launched a revised range of construction Loadall telehandlers, powered by the 81kW (109hp) Stage V JCB 448 DieselMAX engine. This complements the Stage V 55kW 430 DieselMAX models that were unveiled in 2019. To meet the emissions regulations JCB has utilised a combination of next-generation particulate control technologies. This includes a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) with a combined and integrated Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), in a compact one-can solution.
This highly effective integrated exhaust treatment technology removes the requirement for Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The engine now uses a simpler, electronically-controlled Proportional Wastegate Turbocharger, in place of the previous Variable Geometry Turbocharger. New injectors increase the number of pulses per cycle and the engines benefit from improved cold-start performance.
