New JCB ranges make hire show debut

At the Executive Hire Show 2018 (7&8 February Ricoh Arena Coventry), JCB will showcase some of the first site dumpers to roll off the new production line at its World Headquarters in Staffordshire.

The JCB stand will feature the 3-tonne 3T-1 swivel tip model while the innovative JCB 7-tonne Hi-Viz machine will be displayed outside at the Ricoh Arena. They form part of JCB’s nine machine range of site dumpers spanning from 1-9 tonnes.

The new Hi-Viz model is designed and engineered specifically to tackle concerns over accidents and injuries involving site dumpers by enhancing visibility, operator protection, stability, comfort and serviceability.

Also making its Executive Hire Show debut is JCB’s new range of mini excavators. With operating weights of 1.6-1.9 tonnes, the line-up includes the rental-specific, conventional tailswing 16C-1, JCB’s first zero tailswing 1.7-tonne model, the all-new 18Z-1 and the conventional tailswing 19C-1 - ideal for those looking for the ultimate performance from a premium compact excavator.

Key features of the new range include: 100% steel bodywork, improved protection on all hydraulic rams and hoses, 10 integral tie-down points to make transportation easier without damaging tracks, 500-hour greasing intervals, a swing-out counterweight providing easy access to service points and separate service access door for daily checks.

The JCB Access range will also be strongly represented with two popular models from the nine-machine electric scissor lift range which spans from 15’ (4.6m) to 45’ (13.8m). The S1930E and S2632E models on show boast working heights of 5.8 and 8.1 metres respectively.

Further machines featured will be: the JCB VMT 160-80 tandem vibratory roller, HTD5 Dumpster and a series of models from JCB’s powerpack and light equipment range, all of which are specifically designed for the rental sector.
