Put simply, the JCB 516-40 Telehandler is a skid steer, wheeled loading shovel and forklift – all in one compact telehandler package.

This small telehandler achieves its extraordinary versatility thanks to 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 at 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.

As a result, from greenhouses to multi-storey car parks, rental lots and smallholdings, the 516-40 Loadall is at home anywhere.

Available for sale, dry hire or rental throughout Newcastle, the Central Coast and the Hunter Valley.

The JCB 520-40 AGRI telehandler has a spacious, safe, side-entry cab. Visibility is superb and a large opening door allows for easy access, all of which is just the start; we invest in the compact telescopic handler operator’s comfort because it equates to real, measurable improvements in day-long productivity.

This means keeping noise levels low and building everything around the operator, from a fully adjustable suspension seat, mobile phone holder and intelligently placed air vents, to ergonomic control switches on the front console.

Controls on the JCB 520-40 AGRI telescopic handler are intelligently grouped for instinctive use, with hydraulic and transmission controls laid out for quick, safe and precise operation. The load moment indicator, providing progressive read out of forward stability, is at eye level for easy checks and maximum safety.

In fact, the only people who might lose out with the 520-40 AGRI telehandler are potential thieves and vandals; all Loadall windows are etched with the serial number of the machine, whilst to further immobilise a battery isolator is available or a there is a key or keypad immobiliser for when one or more operators are using the machine.


The JCB 520-40 AGRI telescopic handler uses a combination of 2 axles and a hydrostatic transmission and four-wheel steer for superb manoeuvrability.

Good ground clearance and four-wheel drive mean this compact telescopic handler can make excellent progress in any conditions or terrain. Add a hydrostatic transmission for easy operation, infinite speed variations and great fuel efficiency, and you have truly versatile performance and productivity.

Every JCB AGRI telehandler is designed to maximise uptime and productivity. To do that, we make sure our components last a long time and, when routine replacements need to take place, we make sure everything important is easily accessible.

So all checks are quick, simple and safe to carry out from ground level on this compact telescopic handler. The one-piece bonnet opens for ease and safety; the radiator chaff guard fan keeps debris out of the cooling package while most service intervals, including boom lubrication, are a lengthy 500 hours.

Every JCB AGRI telehandler has a one-piece fully welded chassis for maximum strength and minimum weight. Hoses are routed through the boom to protect against damage. The U-shaped boom with integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate has reduced joints and stress points.

Key components like the telescopic handler boom are tested over thousands of cycles and all of our manufacturing processes are backed by ISO 9001:2008.
