JCB’s T65D telescopic boom lift offers an eight-foot/1,000-pound capacity basket that can accommodate three workers throughout its full operating range. The 65-foot lift is powered by a robust 74-hp JCB 444 EcoMAX engine designed to enable the four-wheel drive/two-wheel steer machine to muscle through muddy terrain, steep grades and difficult underfoot conditions without bogging down.

The machine provides workers with 360 degrees of continuous rotation, and the control box features a dial to control the speed of the boom. This, combined with proportional joysticks for basket control, enables workers to maneuver precisely and safely close to working surfaces but also move with speed and efficiency when obstacles are out of the way.

It has a platform height of is 65 feet and four inches, with maximum outreach going to 56-and-a-half feet.
