JCB continues to lead the way in innovation with the introduction of the groundbreaking JCB 525-60E, a compact telehandler that is setting new standards in sustainable construction equipment. This marvel of engineering is part of JCB’s cutting-edge E-TECH range, embodying the future of clean and efficient machinery. The 525-60E isn’t just another telehandler; it’s a paradigm shift towards zero emissions, reduced noise, and uncompromised performance.

A Cleaner Tomorrow
With the 525-60E, JCB reaffirms its commitment to environmental responsibility. Operating in urban areas, air quality-sensitive environments, and confined spaces is no longer a concern. The elimination of CO2, NOx, and particulate emissions at the point of use not only preserves our planet but also helps meet stringent emissions regulations.

Whisper-Like Operation
Silence meets productivity with the JCB 525-60E. The absence of an internal combustion engine translates into near-silent operation on construction sites. Noise-sensitive applications and extended work hours are now attainable, allowing work to be carried out even during the quietest hours without disturbing the surroundings.

Safety and Innovation United
Safety takes centre stage with the 525-60E’s comprehensive features. Equipped with adaptive load control to prevent tipping during heavy loads, reduced noise levels enhance on-site communication, and the cab is certified with ROPS and FOPS for operator protection. The design’s exceptional visibility ensures operators can work with precision, while the advanced safety systems offer peace of mind for both workers and management.

Unmatched Performance
The 525-60E shatters misconceptions about electric machinery by offering the same high performance as its conventional counterparts. Powered by a 24kWh lithium-ion battery, this telehandler is designed for a full day’s work on a single charge. Whether indoors or outdoors, constant 4WD and three steering modes guarantee optimal productivity. Plus, the 240V, and 415V charging capabilities, including fast charging, ensure that downtime is kept to a minimum.

Economic Advantage
Elevating efficiency and cost-effectiveness, the 525-60E boasts considerably lower operating costs with a maintenance-free battery, reduced energy consumption, and extended service intervals. By integrating JCB’s LiveLink telematics, running costs can be managed effectively, giving businesses greater control over their operations.

JCB’s Vision Unveiled
The introduction of the 525-60E marks a turning point in construction equipment. JCB’s relentless pursuit of electrification is transforming industries, and the 525-60E is a testament to this vision. With dual electric motors, brake regeneration, and regenerative hydraulics, this telehandler stands as a symbol of efficiency and progress.

JCB’s Chief Innovation Officer, Tim Burnhope, sums it up eloquently, “The launch of the JCB 525-60E Loadall takes equipment electrification further into general construction, industrial, and agricultural markets, offering a zero-emissions load handling solution with no compromise in performance or productivity. We are very excited about the prospects for this machine.”

In a world where environmental consciousness meets unparalleled performance, the JCB 525-60E emerges as a true game-changer. This electric telehandler redefines what’s possible, ushering in an era of cleaner, quieter, and smarter construction equipment.
