17m Telehandler (JCB 540-170)

The 17m Telehandler by JCB – 540-170 d is a full-sized 4-stage telescopic handler with a huge reach. It uses our award-winning new EcoMAX engine and sits on a chassis that’s designed for load-bearing and stability.

The 540-170’s all-new EcoMAX engine meets Stage IIIB/Tier 4i legislation without using a bulky DPF, which, in turn, brings benefits like great visibility, low running costs and more uptime. To increase productivity still further, there’s a variable-speed cooling fan on 81kW and 93 kW engines.

For quick, easy and safe access, the JCB 540-170 has a three-point access. Backlit switches are clearly visible, even at night or in low visibility.
