Year: 2009, Hours/Mileage: 611, Gross Weight: 26,810 lbs. (12,160 kg), Serial No. 2312-45743, Original Price: 95,000.00 USD, Date Added: 15th Sep 2011, General Description, 10000 LB, 54' Productivity and Performance The side mounted JCB engine combined with JCB axles and transmission, ensure reliable drive train performance for well-proved components. Maximum lift capacity of 10,000 pounds and maximum lift height of 54 feet eight-inches all improve productive capacity. The is the first JCB Loadall to feature a four-stage boom. This is how the machine achieves such a massive lift height without compromising maneuverability. For additional capacity, the 550-170 comes with heavy-duty stabilizers and frame leveling as standard. Stabilizers ensure safe placement of heavy loads to full height while frame leveling gives easier transportation of bulky loads when working on slopes. Safety All round visibility allowed by low boom-line gives the operator greater confidence to move quickly and safely. Audio and visual warnings give rapid operator feedback on engine and transmission status. Neutral start ensures drive is disconnected before the engine can be started. Drive is also disconnected when park brake is engaged. Reliability and Durability Strong boom construction is a feature of JCB Loadalls. The inner boom material extends forward and wraps downward to form the boom head. This is a critical stress point in digging applications.
The JCB design spreads the stresses throughout the boom, eliminating fatigue and potential failure at the boom nose. Large boom overlap between inner and outer sections ensures no boom distortion and avoids potential failure. A one-piece welded frame, with thick steel sections for added rigidity, gives this machine excellent longevity even in the toughest environments. Frame, boom and carriage are all extensively tested to ensure maximum to fatigue failure. With heavy-duty polyethylene replacing sheet metal on vulnerable bodywork, damage potential is minimized.
Low friction, long-life wear pads plus long service intervals of 500 hours for boom lubrication and engine servicing reduce running costs and ensure reliability. Operator Comfort Spacious cab for greater comfort and minimal fatigue. Large windows ensure excellent forward and upward vision, ensuring that the operator can always clearly see the boom. Large glass area and hub mounted fenders mean the operator can always clearly see the direction of the wheels. Cab options include radio housing, roof line, storage moldings, power socket and air conditioning. 58,862.00 GBP,
