As with all JCB Construction telescopic handlers, the 540-180 has unrivalled productivity, efficiency, safety and serviceability as standard too.


Boasting the industry's lowest cost of ownership, the new 540-180 HiViz telehandler is designed to maximise your return on investment throughout it's life. Furthermore, JCB's unrivalled residual value means your Loadall is worth more when it's time to replace your machine.

The 540-180 HiViz telehandler is designed to spend as much time on site as possible. With the lowest 1000hr servicing costs in the industry, along with ground level daily checks, lead to an industry leading SAE rating. New on the 540-180 HiViz is the optional centralised greasing system, making daily checks and maintenance even easier.

We've also taken into account transportation costs. The small footprint of the 540-180 HiViz telehandler means 2 machines can be transported in a curtain-sided trailer, whilst tie down points have been designed to ensure securing the Loadall can be completed from ground level.


Standard in the 540-180 HiViz telehandler is the SMART POWER, 55kW/74hp JCB EcoMAX engine variant will remain free of after-treatment. Available across the range, this unique engine greatly reduces maintenance costs.

The SMART POWER, 55kW engine can't be matched by competitor equivalents. JCB is the only manufacturer to manufacture their entire driveline meaning that all components are configured specifically to get the most out of each model variant.


Boasting the best reach performance in the industry, the 18m Loadall benefits from JCB's innovative engineering to ensure the best cycle times in the industry.

Only available on the 540-180 HiViz telehandler and 540-200, JCB's unique regenerative hydraulics harness gravitational forces, diverting oil back to the rams while the arm is lowering. This feature helps to reduce cycle times by up to 20% and fuel consumption by 4.4%. Further speeding up cycle times is a clever 4-piece boom design which combines hydraulic rams and chains to extend or retract all the sections proportionally in one fast, smooth movement.

The compact dimensions of the 18m telescopic handler also make for a highly manoeuvrable machine, perfect for tight, compact jobsites. By reducing the size of the chassis, the 540-180 HiViz is also lightweight which makes for a nimble product around the site.


The HiViz range of JCB telescopic handlers has long stood for class leading visibility. The 540-180 telehandler is the latest in the HiViz range to benefit from the low boom pivot point, enabling unrivalled visibility around the machine. Sway frames enable an operator to make their machine absolutely level before commencing a lift.

JCB's patented Adaptive Load Control system, a solution for the Australian standard AS10896.1:2019, provides smooth progressive boom extension for safe load retention. And for further safety the Loadall has hose burst check valves (HBCVs) to protect the rams from collapse in the event of hose failure.

For full visibility around the machine, a reversing camera and pulse radar options are now available, the screen is dash mounted and cameras can be mounted to rear and offside for operator peace of mind.
