Review of JCB ROTO 5.5 -21 (360 slew telehandler)

Review of JCB ROTO 5.5 -21 (360 slew telehandler)

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the iconic JCB brand. It is encouraging to see them continuing to push boundaries by further expanding their range of products to meet industry need. Recently, part of the ACOP team were lucky enough to receive a VIP visit to the JCB factory courtesy of Holt JCB. During the visit we were given the opportunity to trial the new JCB ROTO 5.5 – 21. This was at their dedicated training quarry near to the JCB World Headquarters in Uttoxeter, England.   Background The ROTO is the latest in range of telescopic handlers that JCB have unveiled. As the name suggests, these have a 360 slew capability. The ROTO will offer greater lifting capacity and greater reach/height owing to a set of 4 stabilisers, which, in turn, offers a greater footprint and thus more stable base platform. These machines are aimed to satisfy the ever growing demand for ‘bigger and better’ on site. The ROTO is further complemented by a new range of attachments that include a fly-winch, box-winch and platform (only the fly-winch was available to view at the time of writing). It is evident how such machines start to blur the lines of the ‘standard’ telehandler forklift as they are increasingly being used as small cranes and access platforms on sites. JCB have a long established telehandler brand which are a staple on most UK construction sites. However, how will their new ROTO match up to the existing brands on the market?   Our thoughts Here were a list of some of the many facets of the JCB 5.5-21 that impressed us  during...
