  • A 550-170 Loadall is an extremely maneuverable telescopic handler; the compact wheelbase and large steering lock angles save you valuable travel time on site.
  • JCB’s new efficient EcoMAX T4i motor produces its power and torque at low engine speeds for great responsiveness, and our wide range of Construction Loadall models means you can find the perfect machine for your requirements.
  • There’s excellent rearward visibility on a 550-170, courtesy of a low boom profile and low boom pivot.
  • The 550-170 comes with 4WD as standard, helping you maintain plenty of traction and performance even in soft, muddy areas. There’s also an optional transmission dump on the foot brake for superb multi-functioning when loading or re handling.
  • We’ve fitted a variable-speed cooling fan to our 109hp (81kW) Loadall engine.
  • Our Vertical Integration Strategy is all about making sure the engine, transmission, hydraulic rams and cab of every new telescopic handler work in perfect harmony. These key components are therefore JCB-designed for minimum compromise and optimum performance.
  • The 550-170 Loadall has three selectable steer modes. There’s two wheel steer, which is ideal for traveling at high speed on the road; four-wheel steer for working in tight spaces; and crab steer for maneuvering close to walls and buildings.
