JCB announced the launch of the 66-40E Electric Teletruk to customers in the United States. The 66-40E is an industry exclusive among industrial forklifts, featuring a forward reach in a market that has standardized a straight mast. Additionally, as the company’s latest zero emissions machine, the 66-40E Teletruk delivers the material handling capability of an industrial forklift with an exceptional operator environment. This quiet machine is designed for inside use and noise-sensitive environments, yet it is equipped like all JCB machines for world-class power, range, and the ability to work in any weather condition.

Equipped with a unique telescopic forward reach extending more than 7-feet, the 66-40E Teletruk can easily reach across a standard flatbed truck for one-side loading and placing, increasing productivity and allowing for unloading in tight spaces. The 6,600-pound maximum lift capacity allows for heavy lifting capabilities across multiple applications. The combination of forward reach and lift capacity is designed for a wide variety of jobs including reaching into ships to remove cargo, the back of box trucks to remove pallets, and even reaching to the front of a cargo van from the back door.

JCB’s unique Load Motion Control feature alerts the operator through a simple progressive green, amber and red warning light system and progressively stops the lift hydraulics when the maximum lift capacity is reached, preventing forward tip. The machine’s cab is equipped with the JCB CommandPlus control panel and ergonomic controls for a comfortable working environment, decreasing operator fatigue and increasing productivity. Additional standard features include: single lever control and SMART hydraulics for improved operation; SPINTURN 90-degree rear axle allowing the machine to turn within its own axis; SMART electric driveline;  LED work lights, LED beacon, and reverse arm; LiveLink telematics with 5 year subscription.
