A World First a the EHS – JCB launch new Dumpers at the Show

January 14, 2015

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 7:42 am

The JCB site dumper line-up will be based around four popular weight classes. Compact one  tonne and two tonne machines have been designed primarily for house building and landscaping contractors, while 3-3.5 tonne models will suit general construction and rental businesses. At the heavier end, both 6 tonne and 9-10 tonne dumpers offer the ultimate carrying capacity for larger earthmoving projects.

JCB is to launch a comprehensive range of site dumpers ranging in size from one to 10 tonnes.

High-tip, forward tip and swivel skip models will be offered, catering for rental market and contracting requirements in a wide variety of jobsite applications. Engine outputs range from 20-120hp (15.5kW-90kW) and both synchro-shuttle and hydrostatic transmissions are available to deliver ease of use and maximum travel speeds.

Heavy-duty articulating and oscillating chassis frames provide maximum durability and strength. JCB site dumper skips are constructed using thick steel side walls and heavy-duty steel front and base plates, for increased reliability and longevity. Folding ROPS protection ensures operator safety and large axle oscillation angles provide excellent traction and stability on the rough.

The JCB machines have been designed for ease of operation with a simple, clear dashboard and automotive-style controls. The dumpers also feature best-in-class ground-level service access, with engine panels mounted on heavy-duty hinges. Swivel tip models have a swing-locking device to ensure that the skip remains locked in position while travelling. In addition all 6-10 tonne models come as standard with high performance oil-immersed disc brakes for maximum stopping power and reduced maintenance.JCB Chief Innovation and Growth Officer Tim Burnhope said:  “The addition of the site dumper product adds another dimension to the JCB product range. The JCB site dumper will have the fantastic benefit of being backed up by the JCB dealer network, with its renowned levels of service support.”

The JCB site dumper range is available from JCB dealers from February 2015 and will be progressively rolled out to JCB dealers around the world. It will be launched at the 2015 Executive Hire Show in Coventry in February.

It was recently announced that JCB Power Systems has signed a deal worth £4.5 million a year to supply Terex GB with the JCB Ecomax diesel engine, rated at 74hp (55kW), for use in its 6 tonne dumper models. Terex GB also uses JCB transmissions and transfer boxes in its 6, 9 and 10 tonne machines. The innovative JCB Ecomax engine meets the latest EU Stage IIIB/ US Tier 4 Final emissions standards without the need for a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF), simplifying maintenance for customers and reducing ownership costs.
