This new model offers four key benefits for customers in the rental sector and the construction industry:

  • Improved onsite safety through its Hi Viz design
  • Simple, intuitive, easy-to-use controls
  • Ground-level daily checks and serviceable components along with extended service intervals for easier serviceability
  • Superb capacity at reach for greater performance

The 540-140 Hi Viz Loadall has the lowest boom mounting in its class, up to 9.25 in. (23.5 cm) lower than the standard 540-140, ensuring excellent visibility across the offside and to the rear of the machine, boosting safety on site. Visibility is further improved due to a 13 percent reduction in the boom section and a more compact rear chassis section which reduces overhang by 13 in. (33 cm). Hydraulic performance is closely matched with the engine’s output, while lift performance has been tailored to the machine’s stability, both when working on wheels and with the stabilizers down.
