The JCB 540-200 represents a new benchmark for the already world-leading JCB telehandlers.
Max Engine Power
Max Lift Capacity
Max Lift Height
The new JCB 540-200 represents a new high for our telehandlers. Its 5-piece boom with range-topping 20m reach offers you the manoeuvrability of a telescopic handler, combined with crane-like lifting performance – potentially saving you from hiring additional machinery.
This telehandler is also blessed with innovative hydraulics to boost efficiency, as well as three steer modes. Of course, productivity is nothing without durability, which is why the 540-200 uses our renowned DIESELMAX engine with a perfectly matched JCB transmission. This Loadall also boasts a stable work platform, great comfort, excellent safety, and easy serviceability.
Available for sale, dry hire or rental throughout Newcastle, the Central Coast and the Hunter Valley.

LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP
JCB’s innovative Clean Burn technology helps EcoMAX to meet T4F/Stage IV regulations using a sealed-for-life SCR system instead of exhaust after-treatments like DPFs. Benefits include the fact that you don’t have to worry about costly time-consuming DPF regeneration and replacement.
An LED screen on the JCB 540-200 telehandler’s dash provides useful information for efficient running, like fuel remaining, fuel used since last fill, current average fuel consumption, DEF level and any current warnings.
By producing high levels of power and torque even at engine speeds as low as 1300rpm, EcoMAX can provide fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
JCB telescopic handlers enjoy proven demand supported by legendary productivity and build quality, ensuring high residuals the world over. EcoMAX can be adapted to run on lower-grade fuels, making Construction Loadalls easily resalable across different territories, boosting residuals further still.
UNMATCHED SAFETY & SECURITY
A low boom profile and low boom pivot make for excellent rearward visibility on the JCB 540-200 Loadall, likewise the full set of side and rear-view mirrors. Because EcoMAX doesn’t use a DPF, the bonnet line is lower, improving both visibility and manoeuvrability.
In many territories, our Loadall security system is Thatcham-approved. The package comprises a JCB LiveLink telematic GPS vehicle tracker, an immobiliser and a Cesar Datatag.
The cab is Roll Over Protection System (ROPS) and Falling Objects Protection System (FOPS) certified, so operators are safe at all times. Sway frames enable an operator to make their telehandler absolutely level before commencing lifting.
To protect bystanders, a reverse alarm is standard-fit on the JCB 540-200 telehandler, and an operator presence switch disables drive when your operator isn’t seated, preventing accidental operation.
Our factory-fit immobilisers can result in reduced insurance premiums. You can choose whether your immobiliser is operated by a key or a 4-digit code keypad that automatically arms itself after a set period of time following engine shutdown.
Cesar is a simple and effective method of machine identification and registration that’s operated by police across the UK and Ireland. JCB fully supports this initiative and we fit it as standard to all UK telescopic handlers.
Hose burst check valves (HBCVs) are fitted as standard to the rams, preventing a collapse in the event of hose failure.
LiveLink tracking provides valuable real-time machine location data. Geofencing alerts help to ensure your machine is only used in specified areas.
UNMATCHED RUNNING TIME
Fluid filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel) are centrally located for fast, easy servicing. The air filter is easily accessible too, and its double-element design simplifies cleaning; yet another reason why JCB Construction Loadalls have best-in-class SAE serviceability ratings.
All daily checks and greasing on the JCB 540-200 telehandler can be performed at ground level. It’s also easy to fill the diesel and AdBlue tanks from ground level, with both tanks equipped with pre-filters in the filler necks to guard against dirt and contaminants.
You can access the battery easily on this telescopic handler (and without specialist tools) via a lockable cover that’s opened with the ignition key.
A dry lubricant system means the JCB 540-200 telehandler’s wear pads are extremely durable, with service intervals of 500 hours.
This telehandler doesn’t use DPF technology, so there’s no loss of productivity during the regeneration process, nor the extra expense of replacing a DPF.
To prove how good our EcoMAX engines are, we’ve tested them for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
REACH & HEIGHT TO THE MAX
The JCB 520-200 telehandler’s regenerative hydraulics harness gravitational forces, diverting oil back to the rams while the arm is lowering. This exclusive JCB feature helps to reduce cycle times by up to 20% and fuel consumption by 4.4%.
A precise high-speed double boom chain extension system helps this unique telescopic handler to maximise job site efficiency. Electro servo hydraulics and a high-flow 110 l/min hydraulic pump also ensure fast cycle times.
With its remarkable forward reach capabilities (200kg at 15.9m, 1500kg at 8.9m), a JCB 540-200 telehandler offers productive support throughout any build, reaching across typical building foundations with ease.
Our innovative 5-piece boom design combines a hydraulic ram and chains to extend or retract all the sections proportionally in one fast, smooth movement. What’s more, it’s all operated from just one lever.
With its sway chassis, you can keep the 540-200 telescopic handler level on uneven ground. The stabiliser legs also provide a wide spread to maximise operator confidence and load capacity throughout the lift envelope.
Changing attachments is easy thanks to the combination of JCB quickhitch and an auxiliary hydraulics venting valve operated by a button in the cab.
SUPREME STRENGTH & DURABILITY
Heavy-duty axle feet help the JCB 540-200 Construction Loadall telehandler to absorb the immense stresses generated during continuous heavy material rehandling applications, while a one-piece fully welded chassis maximises strength and minimises weight.
There’s a tough U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, there are large boom overlaps of up to 1.0m; we’ve also reduced joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.
To provide long-term corrosion protection, we dip JCB Construction telehandler cabs in electrophoretic ally prior to painting. Keyhole castings hold the tilt and extension rams in place to further improve overall structural integrity.
Hydraulic hoses are intelligently routed through the boom for maximum protection; the bonnet is side-mounted, which protects it from site damage; and rear lights fold up to keep them clear and well protected from damage when working on site.
The boom on a JCB 540-200 Construction Loadall telehandler is mounted low in the chassis, providing an extremely rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility.
The new Construction 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.
Optional front and top screen roof guards offer additional protection from falling debris.
