On 25 April 2016, JCB unveiled a fourth model to its HiViz
telescopic handler range, building on the success of its
high-visibility, low-boom pivot design.
The 540-140 HiViz offers a 4,000-kilogram maximum lift capacity,
with a maximum lift height of 13.47 metres on wheels, or 13.78
metres when using stabilisers. Delivering unrivalled rear and
offside visibility, the HiViz machine is equipped with a choice of
Tier 4 Final diesel engines.
This new model offers four key benefits for customers in the rental
sector and construction industry:
Improved on-site safety through its HiViz design
Ease of use: simple and intuitive controls
Serviceability: ground-level daily checks and serviceable
components, along with extended service intervals
Performance: superb capacity at reach
The 540-140 HiViz Loadall has the lowest boom mounting in its
class, ensuring excellent visibility across the offside and to the
rear of the machine and boosting safety on-site. Visibility is
further improved due to a 13-percent reduction in the boom section
and a more compact rear chassis section that reduces overhang by
330 millimetres. Hydraulic performance is closely matched with the
engine’s output, while lift performance has been tailored to the
machine’s stability. This gives the 540-140 HiViz unmatched lifting
and reach capabilities. Hose burst check valves on the lift rams
prevent collapse in the event of a hose failure, and JCB’s patented
Adaptive Load Control system is automatically activated to control
boom functions and help longitudinal stability.
The 540-140 HiViz telescopic handler is powered by JCB’s proven
Ecomax diesel engine. Customers can choose a low-maintenance 55kW
(75hp) version that meets the latest engine emission standards.
JCB’s recalibration of the Ecomax engine achieves this emission
requirement while achieving an 8-percent fuel saving.
The 81kW (108hp) and 93kW (125hp) versions of the Ecomax engine use
JCB’s innovative one-can SCR solution. The Selective Catalytic
Reduction unit is incorporated into a single exhaust muffler. This
one-can solution maintains JCB’s compact engine design, allowing
machine designers to utilise a low engine canopy for unparalleled
JCB’s ergonomic single lever control (SLC) delivers smooth, precise
control and contributes to reduced operator fatigue and improved
comfort in the cab. The Loadall has no complex interlocks or
‘deadman’ switches on the hydraulic controls, making the HiViz easy
to control and operate.
A wide-opening gas-assisted engine canopy delivers ground-level
maintenance with up to 35-percent improvement in the machine’s SAE
service rating versus the competition. A dry lubricant system
delivers durable boom wear pad life, with service intervals of just
The 540-140 HiViz offers a choice of aerial work platform options.
All Loadall models are provided with JCB LiveLink telematics, while
UK models also come with CESAR Datatag marking and an immobiliser
that also adds to security on-site.
