Compact Loadalls Flex Their Muscles In JCB Office Redevelopment

Working At Home!

Compact Loadalls Flex Their Muscles In JCB Office Redevelopment

It’s a growing trend in many job junctions for personnel to be allowed to work from home, such is the technology available today.  Sometimes, this can be taken too literally, as JCB demonstrated during the JCB office redevelopment.

Three JCB compact telehandlers are being used for precisionhandling of heavy loads in a major office redevelopment at JCB’s World HQ. Three 515-40 Loadalls are playing a central role in creating 400 m² of additional floor space at the Rocester offices in Staffordshire.

Working at ground level, the compact and manoeuvrable machines" initial role was to fill in a void which was previously a mezzanine floor above the Backhoe Loader Business Unit offices. Over a 48 hour period, the 515-40s lifted 30 fabricated steel girder sections, each weighing 1.3 tonnes, into the air so they could be bolted together to form a new floor area.

Contractors World had not been supplied the length of the beams of the lift height at the time of publishing.

The machines – hired from Manchester-based PJP Plant Hire – stand 1.8 metres high, 2.97 metres long and can lift four tonnes to 1.5 metres and are 4-wheel steer, making them ideally suited to sites where the working area is restricted, particularly inside buildings.

The 515-40 is the smallest-ever Loadall telescopic handler model ever produced by JCB. Delivering powerful performance despite these compact dimensions, the machine brings the benefits of JCB’s market-leading Loadall range to previously inaccessible construction and industrial applications.
As a result, the machine boasts a spacious operator environment, with easy access, yet the overall height of the machine is reduced to less than two metres - a barrier which has previously prevented compact telescopic handlers performing in many otherwise suitable applications.
