PRODUCTIVITY AND PERFORMANCE.
JCB HAS A PROVEN 35-YEAR TRACK RECORD
OF DESIGNING AND MANUFACTURING WORLDBEATING TELESCOPIC HANDLERS FOR THE
CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY. THE NEW COMPACT
525-60 HI VIZ IS THE LATEST IN THIS LONG
LINE OF MACHINES BUILT FOR MAXIMUM
PRODUCTIVITY ON ANY SITE.
Maximum maneuverability.
1 Our 2-speed transmission allows operators
to select high and low speeds. The low speed
setting complies with building site speed
regulations, while high speed is ideal for roading.
2
Hydrostatic transmission makes it easy for
operators to achieve precise machine
movements even in cramped spaces. The
driveline works in parallel with the braking
system too; a transmission dump on the foot
brake offers superb multi-functioning and
increased power during loading and rehandling.
3
For excellent traction and performance in
soft, muddy conditions, we’ve fitted the 525-60
Hi Viz with 4WD as standard. Opt for our limited
slip differential axle to maximize tractive effort on
slippery surfaces. This system transfers drive from
the spinning wheel to the stationary wheel.

Operators can maneuver quickly and easily,
with directional shuttle changes possible via
either the shuttle lever on the steering column
or the joystick mounted shuttle switch
A low height of 6' 2" and a narrow
width of 6ft enables the 525-60 Hi Viz
Loadall to access the very smallest
operating environments.
5 With a compact wheelbase and large
steering lock angles, tight turning circles and
superior maneuverability are assured.
6 This Loadall has three selectable manual
4-wheel steering modes. Two-wheel steer is
perfect for roading; four-wheel steer provides
great maneuverability in tight spaces; and crab
steer is designed to edge your Loadall either
close to or away from walls and buildings.

STYLE AND DESIGN.
THE LATEST JCB LOADALLS LIKE THE 525-60
HI VIZ HAVE BEEN DESIGNED WITH VALUABLE
INPUT FROM CUSTOMERS, AND THEY’RE VISIBLY
DIFFERENT FROM THEIR PREDECESSORS. THE
CHANGES ARE MORE THAN SKIN-DEEP THOUGH;
YOU’LL FIND A WEALTH OF INNOVATIVE
FEATURES TO COPE WITH THE RIGORS OF
HARD WORK ON ANY CONSTRUCTION SITE.

Design that works harder
1 JCB’s new-look Loadall exterior isn’t purely
cosmetic; the cooling fan airflow is now angled
upwards, reducing time-consuming dust build-up.
2
The boom pivot point on the 525-60 Hi Viz
is low down; this helps to provide unrivalled
visibility to the right hand rear wheel, often a
blind spot on traditional telehandlers.
3 This machine shares key design elements
with our larger Loadalls, including the distinctive
and innovative side-mounted engine setup.
4
Our slimline outer boom section enables
operators to see the front right-hand wheel
with ease.
5 To keep the 525-60 Hi Viz as narrow as
possible, the cab door handle and hinges are
fitted flush with the side of the machine.

QUALITY/RELIABILITY/DURABILITY.
Keyhole castings hold the tilt and
extension rams to further improve
overall structural integrity.
SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING, JCB LOADALLS
HAVE BEEN PRIZED FOR THEIR HIGH LEVELS
OF BUILD QUALITY AND DURABILITY. THE
NEW 525-60 HI VIZ IS NO DIFFERENT,
BENEFITTING FROM ADVANCED PRODUCTION
PROCESSES, INTENSIVE TESTING PROCEDURES
AND PREMIUM COMPONENTRY.
4
JCB 525-60 Hi Viz hydraulic cylinders
have friction-welded eye-ends for extra
strength; all pivots use hardened pins.
Strength in depth
1
1
The one-piece fully welded chassis
maximizes strength and minimizes weight.
The Loadall boom is mounted low in the chassis,
providing an extremely rigid structure.
2 Heavy-duty axle feet absorb the immense
stresses generated during continuous heavy
material rehandling.
3
For ultimate strength and durability, we’ve
built in large boom overlaps of up to 2.5ft.
4 We’ve fitted a tough inverted U-shaped
boom pressing with fully welded closing plates.
For extra strength, we’ve reduced the number
of joints and stress points across our integrated
boom nose and one-piece closing plate.

SAFETY AND SECURITY
The 525-60 Hi Viz Loadall is equipped with
a full set of side mirrors for excellent
visibility and full safety compliance.
Visibly better.
5 As you’d expect from a JCB Hi Viz machine,
all-around visibility is superb via the large roof
screen, the opening rear window, the fold-back
upper door, and the compact JCB Diesel by
Kohler engine unit with its low-level sloping
hood. In fact, rear visibility is outstanding thanks
to our unique low profile rear chassis and boom.
5
6 Cab-mounted front and rear worklights
provide great visibility. To make it even better
(especially when loading at height in dark
conditions), opt for our boom-mounted
worklights.
Safeguarding your investment.
7 JCB LiveLink’s telematic GPS tracking
provides invaluable real-time machine location
data. Geofencing alerts help to ensure your
machine is only being used in your chosen areas.

EFFICIENT ENGINE DESIGN.
JCB LOADALLS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FOCUSED
ON MAKING THE MOST OF EVERY DROP OF FUEL.
THE EFFICIENT NEW JCB DIESEL BY KOHLER
ENGINE RANGE – AS FITTED TO THE 525-60
HI VIZ – TAKES THIS ETHOS TO THE NEXT
LEVEL, OFFERING A WINNING COMBINATION
OF PERFORMANCE AND FUEL SAVINGS.
JCB Diesel by Kohler.
The 525-60 Hi Viz Loadall is equipped with a
potent JCB Diesel by Kohler T4 final (EPA
compliant) motor that produces 300Nm of
torque at just 1500rpm, and doesn’t need costly
DPF or AdBlue after-treatment.
Most Tier 4 final engines use a Diesel Particulate
Filter (DPF) or SCR, requiring additional AdBlue
fluid level maintenance – this JCB Diesel by
Kohler engine doesn’t.
Because it produces peak levels of torque at
engine speeds as low as 1500-1600rpm, this
engine can provide fuel-efficient matching of the
transmission and hydraulics.
12
LOADALL 525-60 HI VIZ
Fluid filters on this machine (engine oil,
hydraulic oil and fuel) are within easy reach
for fast, easy servicing. The air filter is easily
accessible too, and a double-element
construction simplifies cleaning.
SERVICEABILITY.
ANOTHER KEY TO ULTIMATE PRODUCTIVITY IS
MINIMIZED DOWNTIME. OUR ENTIRE LOADALL
RANGE, INCLUDING THE 525-60 HI VIZ, IS THEREFORE
DESIGNED TO KEEP SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE TO
A MINIMUM. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE IS, OF COURSE,
INEVITABLE, BUT EVEN WHEN IT’S DUE, YOU’LL FIND
IT STRAIGHTFORWARD AND SPEEDY.
2
Easy access.
1 All of the 525-60 Hi Viz’s daily checks and
greasing can be done from ground level.
2 With its gas-assisted cylinder, the hood is
easy to open and close. The service bay within is
large and wide enough to afford great access to
three sides of the engine.
1
3 The diesel tank is easily accessed and filled
from ground level. There’s an integral pre-filter
in the filler neck as well, offering protection from
dirty fuel. 4
Hydraulic hoses are intelligently routed
through the boom for maximum protection.
5 Because the 525-60 Hi Viz’s wear pads use a
dry lubricant system, they only need servicing
every 500 hours (compared to 250 hours on
typical competitor machines).

COST OF OWNERSHIP.
WE BELIEVE THAT PROVIDING THE VERY BEST
VALUE FOR MONEY SHOULDN’T BE RESTRICTED TO
OFFERING A HIGHLY EFFICIENT ENGINE PACKAGE.
THAT’S WHY THE 525-60 HI VIZ HAS A HUGE ARRAY
OF EXTRA FEATURES DESIGNED TO KEEP YOUR
COST OF OWNERSHIP TO A MINIMUM.

Saving you money.
To save you time and money, JCB’s LiveLink
telematics suite uses satellite technology to
provide valuable real-time data on machine
location, movements, health, usage and
servicing requirements.
JCB Loadalls are heralded and sought after all
around the world for their legendary productivity
and build quality. By owning one, you’ll benefit
from the resulting high residual values.
This engine burns fuel so cleanly that it doesn’t
require exhaust after-treatment, meaning that you
won’t need to use costly heat-resistant lube oils.
1 The 525-60 Hi Viz is fitted with the flat glazing
throughout keeping replacement costs low.
14
LOADALL 525-60 HI VIZ
Protected from downtime.
2
The side-mounted engine hood is safely
recessed within the machine, providing
increased protection from site damage.
3 Steering rams are well out of harm’s way,
mounted high on the axle. This protects them
from damage and minimizes downtime.
4
By electrophoretically dipping the 525-60
Hi Viz’s cab prior to the painting process, we
ensure long-term corrosion protection.
To maintain strong residuals, Loadalls need to
look good even after extensive use; that’s why
we use a powder coat paint process that’s robust
and resistant to stone chips.
