Designed to place heavy loads with ease and precision, the 512-56 is one of our largest capacity Loadalls.This easy to operate telescopic handler is equipped with low effort servo controls that are arranged in a pattern style that most operators are accustomed to.

The ‘low effort’ doesn’t just stop at operating the machine – with proven reliability and easy access to the side mounted engine for the daily checks, this machine is one of the easiest machines to maintain on the market today

  • For ergonomic, fast and precise control JCB Loadall are fitted with a fully proportional twin lever or an optional single lever. This makes them exceptionally intuitive for telehandler operators to use.

    New instruments and a 3.5″ color TFT screen form an intuitive automotive-style layout in the Loadall cab. To create the perfect driving position, opt for the easily adjustable tilting telescopic steering column.

    All-round visibility is excellent courtesy of direct glazing, large roof screen and low engine bay, while backlit switches are crystal clear even in the dark.

    The Loadall hood isn’t purely cosmetic; the cooling fan airflow is now angled upwards, reducing dust build-up. Standard-fit JCB fenders provide superior protection from dirt and spray.

    Choose an operator environment to suit your climate: fully glazed or canopy (mesh is available instead of side glass on canopy builds). The exterior top door slam latch is new – you can now close the upper door from outside.

    The 7-speed fan heater creates the most comfortable, productive operator environment. Optional air conditioning is perfect for work sites in hotter climates.

    On bright days, a Loadall telescopic handler’s standard-fit tinted cab glass will reflect 30% of the sun’s energy for enhanced operator comfort.


  • By producing high levels of power and torque even at engine speeds as low as 1300-1400rpm, a JCB Loadall telehandler’s EcoMAX engine can provide great responsiveness and fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.

    All Loadalls are products of the latest JCB Efficient Design programme, meaning that you can expect significant fuel savings over our Tier 3 models.

    Your engine can be remapped to run on lower-grade fuels, which means your telescopic handler can be resold across many different territories (where legislation permits), with a corresponding boost to residual values.

    A 3.5″ color TFT screen on the dash provides operators with useful information for efficient running, like fuel remaining, fuel used since last fill, current average fuel consumption figures, DEF level and current warnings.

    These telehandlers have a precise high speed double boom chain extension system to maximize job site efficiency.

    You’ll find that a JCB Loadall is a great asset in many respects, not least financially – huge global demand, plus legendary productivity, plus superb build quality equals maximum resale value.


  • Many competitor machines require a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to meet Tier 4 Final legislation. Instead, a JCB Loadall uses a sealed-for-life SCR system. Among numerous benefits is the fact that there’s no loss of productivity due to DPF regeneration.

    All daily checks and greasing can be carried out at ground level on a JCB Loadall telescopic handler. For fast, easy inspection of 3 sides of the engine, there’s a large, wide service bay, accessed by a gas-assisted engine hood.

    To aid cold starting, twin batteries are fitted as standard to our telehandlers; these are protected by a hinged door that offers easy access, yet has locking bolts for security.

    It’s easy to fill both the diesel and AdBlue tanks from ground level. Both tanks also have built-in pre-filters in the filler necks to guard against dirt and contaminants.

    A dry lubricant system makes JCB Loadall telehandler wear pads extremely durable, with service intervals of 500 hours.

    The filters on a Loadall (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel) are centrally located for fast, easy servicing. The air filter is easily accessible, and its double-element design simplifies cleaning.


  • For quick, easy and safe access, JCB Loadall operators have three points of contact at all times when getting in and out of the machine with low access and a single step.

    Hose burst check valves on these telehandlers’ rams prevent collapse in the event of a hose failure.

    A JCB Loadall has excellent rearward visibility; the high boom profile and pivot, meanwhile, give operators a good view underneath the boom.

    There’s a full set of side and rear-view mirrors for all-around visibility and safety compliance. A reverse alarm is a standard feature on all JCB telehandlers.

    To keep your Loadall operators safe at all times, the full cab or canopy are both ROPS and FOPS certified.

    JCB’s innovative boom chain system uses large chains for added peace of mind; all chains are even doubled.


  • A JCB Loadall is fitted with a tough inverted U-shaped boom pressing with fully welded closing plates. For extra strength, we’ve reduced the number of joints and stress points across our integrated boom nose and one-piece closing plate.

    The boom is mounted low in the chassis, providing a rigid structure and maximum over-the-shoulder visibility. Hoses are routed through the boom for maximum protection, while boom overlaps of up to 3.2ft ensure ultimate strength and durability.

    Side-mounted recessed engine hoods and fold-up rear lights are designed to avoid on-site damage to your telescopic handler. For comprehensive long-term corrosion protection, we dip the cab in electrophoretic alloy before painting it.

    The JCB 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.

    The Tier 4 Final engine builds on the proven success of the JCB EcoMAX platform. Since the start of the engine program we have achieved over 200,000 hours of testing across the toughest applications and environments.

    Every JCB telehandler benefits from a one-piece fully welded chassis which maximises strength and minimises weight.

    Opt for front and top screen roof guards to increase protection from falling objects.
    At JCB, we make our own hydraulic cylinders, cabs, axles, transmissions and engines – all designed to work in perfect harmony for optimum reliability.

    JCB Loadalls also boast 500hrs extended service intervals and simplified maintenance procedures, and with our worldwide dealer network you have a ‘one stop shop’ for parts and service.

    Our telescopic handlers also remain highly desirable long after their initial purchase. So much so that, throughout the world, JCB telescopic handlers can boast premium residual values.


  • A JCB Loadall is extremely manoeuvrable; the compact wheelbase and large steering lock angles can help to save you valuable travel time on site, especially where space is limited.

    For ergonomic, fast and precise control, JCB Loadall telehandlers are fitted with a fully proportional twin lever or an optional single lever. Auxiliary spools are fitted as standard, allowing you to use a wide range of attachments for maximum versatility.

    Sway frames enable an operator to make their telescopic handler absolutely level before commencing lifting.

    Variable geometry turbo technology provides excellent performance at low revs, which means you can expect superior fuel efficiency.

    A Construction Loadall has three selectable steer modes. There’s two wheel steer, which is ideal for travelling at high speed on the road; four-wheel steer for working in tight spaces; and crab steer for maneuvering close to walls and buildings.

    Rear axle stabilization, standard on 507-516 Loadalls, improves stability while lifting. High Lift models 510-516 have additional front stabilizers attached to the chassis; this helps to maximize the overall lift capacity of your machine.
