JCB adds two Loadall models: compact and high capacity
The 550-80 – Ultimate Productivity
JCB’s highest capacity Loadall, specifically designed for bulk handling operations in waste and industrial sectors, the conceptual 550-80 is set to offer a lift height of 26 ft and a maximum lifting capacity of 11,000 lbs.
Powered by either a 100hp (74 kW) or 130hp (97kW) engine, the machine boasts a capable transmission, 37 gal/min Variflo hydraulics and Hiflow pipework for optimized cycle times and auxiliary service performance.
The 550-80 is designed to work equally well with forks or in a shovel configuration, and has the capacity to operate with 4.5-cubic-yard high-capacity buckets. With servo controls as standard and the option of a seat mounted servo, the operator benefits from low lever efforts and excellent ergonomics, all increasing efficiency.
JCB’s Smooth Ride System offers improved load retention and increased comfort in load and carry operations.
With loader operation in mind the 550-80 comes with a Z-bar bucket linkage, to provide high dump and roll-back angles. The low boom line also contributes to excellent all-round visibility, which is essential in a rapid cycle loading situation.
The 550-80 offers the ideal materials handling machine for heavy duty waste and recycling operations, with its high-lift capacity and powerful driveline ensuring rapid loading cycles and exceptional productivity.
