JCB 4CXWM model

Another first -
A brand new 4CX Wastemaster from JCB

At RWM 2012, JCB added the brand new 4CX Wastemaster backhoe loader to its well-established range for the waste and recycling industry - developed to deliver high levels of efficiency, versatility and cost savings.

This is not a compromise machine but on developed in line with extensive customer evaluation and fitted with purpose-built features. The backhoe loader is transformed into a purpose designed, production model for arduous waste environments. With its ability to power an extensive range of specialist attachments, the JCB 4CXWM model – JCB’s first dedicated backhoe loader for the industry – will be a welcome solution in the non-stop working environment typically found at Household Waste Recycling Centres, also known as Civic Amenity Sites.

Globally, the backhoe loader is already one of JCB’s biggest selling machines into waste, recycling and demolition applications, with large volume sales in Asia and South America and a strong presence in specific European markets. The latest model is competitively priced which is less than the wheeled excavator typically seen on site. Its ability to perform a variety of roles also eliminates the need for other machines such as forklift or pallet trucks –further increasing cost savings.

The specialist model incorporates additional length rear stabilisers and a front frame incorporating hydraulic legs. This combination raises the entire machine well clear of the ground, offering exceptional views into a bin when compacting material with either a grapple or compaction wheel attachment.

However,with the range of additional attachments including grabs for handling waste material and a sweeper collector for keeping the site clean and tidy, there is opportunity for high utilisation. Furthermore, a unique hook lift for manoeuvring bins and skips gives clear advantages over other machines in terms of site productivity.

JCB 4CXWM model – JCB’s first dedicated backhoe loader for the industry Versatility at both ends

The range of purpose-designed bucket options opens up a wide array of typical waste re-handling tasks. At the loader end, users can choose between high-capacity general-purpose, 6-in-1, or top grab buckets depending on the application and nature of the load. At the excavator end, a hydraulic jaw bucket or a mechanical grapple both deliver highly effective materials handling capabilities.

Safety on site is enhanced by superb all round visibility from the cab, high visibility stabiliser chevrons, convex mirrors, rotating beacon and a reversing alarm. Machine protection is assured with the inclusion of additional boom protection, rear screen impact protection, light guards and puncture protected tyres.

The high specification new machine is founded on JCB’s world leading 4CX backhoe loader. It features the powerful 75 kW (100 hp) JCB Dieselmax engine and incorporates innovations such as Advanced EasyControl and 4-speed Powershift transmission with TorqueLock.
