Loadall 550-80 spec guide
With servo controls as standard, operators benefit from low lever efforts and excellent ergonomics.
JCB’s optional Smooth Ride System will also offer improved load retention and increased comfort in load and carry operations.
High dump and roll-back angles of 46° and 34° respectively, ensure good material retention and stockpiling for efficient lorry or hopper loading.
The inner boom of the 550-80WM uses a splayed nose design to maximise structural integrity while also incorporating Z-bar bucket linkage.
This system provides 6.5t of breakout force – an increase of more than 50% on the current 541 Wastemaster.
The low boom line also contributes to excellent all-round visibility, which is essential in a rapid cycle loading situation.
