In response to growing demand in North America for telehandlers in the sub-2,700 kg category, JCB is launching its 504-13 Loadall subcompact telehandler.

With an 1,814-kg lift capacity and maximum lift height of 4 metres, the new JCB 504-13 telehandler is ideal for maintenance applications, job site clean-up and material handling within confined worksites. 

The new subcompact telehandler builds on the design and capability characteristics of the company’s earlier JCB 520-40 Loadall, with the addition of a new 39 hp Perkins Tier 4 Final-compliant diesel engine. 

“JCB is the biggest selling telehandler brand in North America and around the world. Much of our success, especially in North America, extends from our popular, early compact telehandlers,” said Rebecca Yates, product manager for JCB North America.

“And with the compact telehandler market up by about 30 per cent this year, it’s an exciting time to add a new subcompact machine to the JCB line-up and further extend the most diverse telehander range in the industry.” 

The 504-13 Loadall is built with all-steel bodywork as well as permanent four-wheel steering for enhanced maneuverability.

As well, the telehandler’s low boom profile provides improved visibility, enabling boosting productivity and safety, according to the company. Alongside the machine’s two-speed hydrostatic transmission, the 504-13 Loadall also includes a compact tool carrier or skid steer coupler for attachments.

The 504-13 Loadall features JCB’s U-pressed steel boom with a reduced number of welds and stress points. Another unique feature of the JCB Loadall telehandlers are 500-hour extended service intervals and simplified maintenance procedures, with all daily checks performed at ground level. 

The 504-13 Loadall joins 15 other JCB Loadall telehandler models offered in North America.
