The new JCB Series III Loadall made its international debut at the recent SIMA show in Paris, winning Machine of the Year 2019.
It is powered by JCB’s own 4.4L EcoMax, 4-cylinder engine delivering 74hp.
A 90L/min hydraulic system gives rapid cycling and a 120L/min upgrade option can be specified for high demand applications.
Already proven in the standard wheel format, the 3TS-8W tracked machine has more capacity due to its greater tare weight, pushing beyond the wheeled units’ 4.4 tonnes to a useful 5.7t. Rated capacity at full boom extension is 732kg.
Load-over heights of 2.9 - 3.8m and forward reach of 1.1 - 2.25m at ground level show the versatility of the telescopic layout.
The machine is good for loading or unloading bales, pallets, boxes and bags from one side of a road truck or farm trailer; users can switch between fixed or self-levelling bucket control that combines with the Smoothride suspension system for ultimate load control.
Additionally, operators can manipulate the boom to mimic the actions of a frontloader with vertical-lift geometry.
