JS130 excavators fitted with the T4i compliant, 91 hp (68 kW) JCB Ecomax engineExcavator Fuel Savings A Winner

Surrey-based J Devine Group civil engineering has hailed the fuel efficiency of JCB’s new tier 4i tracked excavators having just purchased three JS130 excavators fitted with the T4i compliant, 91 hp (68 kW) JCB Ecomax engine

They have already impressed with their fuel efficiency and reliability on a series of house-building projects including a new development at Queen Elizabeth Barracks, Church Crookham, Hampshire.

In addition, the machines have the JCB LiveLink telematics fleet management system so can be monitored remotely to enable the owner to fully analyse every aspect of performance.

J Devine plant manager, Tim Brackley said: “We purchased the JCB machines following a successful demonstration period during which they proved extremely reliable and their fuel consumption was impressive.

“The specification was exactly what we needed and the feedback from the operators was excellent so we placed the order.

“Since the machines arrived, nothing has changed our minds. With diesel prices as they are, fuel efficiency is massively important for us. To date the three machines are averaging between 6.5 and 8.1 litres per hour. If they maintain those rates we will be absolutely delighted.

“No one is quite sure what the future holds regarding carbon emissions, but the figures on these models are good and we are pleased to have invested in machines at the forefront in technology to keep us ahead of the game.”

Pioneer Turns Around Pumpset In Under 4 Weeks

Pioneer Pump got a call for a 300 m³/hr pump, pumping diesel at 130 m head at 2000 rpm, on a Tuesday and provided its customer with a solution in under 4 weeks.

The original was for an ATEX zone II pumpset. However, price and lead time on the Atex engine were too great for the end-user, therefore, Pioneer offered Becot its standard Atex alternative.

This is a CAT C9 engine, fully equipped with a Chalwyn valve and spark arrestor, ‘Rig Safe’, system suitable for operation in gaseous and flammable applications, available in stock at Pioneer’s UK operation. This resulted in a formal order for 1 off ‘Rig Safe’ diesel trailer set.

The pumpset comprised of a 24-hour run, heavy-duty fuel tank; on-road wheels and trailer axles; a CAT C9 225 kW engine and an 8’ x 6’ standard centrifugal pump. The complete set was built and fully tested in less than 10 days.

Elodie Rodriguez, Western European Sales Manager for Pioneer Pump, commented: ‘This was our first ever enquiry from Becot France and we were delighted to have had the privilege of providing them with a solution. Through close collaboration, both companies were able to service their customer’s requirements swiftly and to specification. We are now looking forward to further projects on which to collaborate’.
