Even a severe recession is not enough to put JCB off as they strive to be leaders in specifc felds. Not content with being a major player in the agricultural and construction sectors, they very frmly have their eyes set on the waste and recycling industry sectors.

Some

manufacturers believe they can meet the unique and special requirements of this vital sector just by tweaking machines primarily designed for the constructon industry. And this may have been the case with JCB in the past, but that is changing rapidly

JCB has recognized that there is sufficient volume within the waste and recycling industries to justify the cost of developing a specifc line of machines for certain applicatons and developing special atachments that can be used with general purpose equipment such as skidsteers.

Set to join JCB’s established JS200W Wastemaster – a conventional wheeled excavator adapted for the needs of scrap and waste handling industries - is the JS20MH. Although sharing the engine and hydraulics with the latest JS160W model, the undercarriage is a completely new design and features a centralised slew turret for increased all-round stability and uniform lif performance throughout the 360° rotaton.

This result in a consistent operation and true material handler characteristics, aided further by a slew gear box for increased slew accuracy while loading. Purpose-built for the waste and recycling environment, the machine will be available with fxed or hydraulically raised cab for loading containers, giving improved vision and safety on site.

JCB say no compromise

Powered by the 97 kW (130 hp) JCB Dieselmax engine and fitted with a 5.7 m straight boom, the JS20MH will be tailor-made for material handling applications
