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 </span>standard with high performance oil-immersed disc brakes for maximum stopping power and reduced maintenance.
Confidence in the JCB Brand
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.
Tim went on to explain why Terex instead of JCB original design. JCB were confident in the build quality of the Terex range of site dumpers which are based on the very well accepted Benford dumpers.
Customer already running a fleet of JCB equipment will appreciate the commonality of parts that the site dumper range feature in their powertrains. They will also appreciate that the JCB brand promises quality, reliability and full back-up services.
The JCB site dumper range is available from JCB dealers. 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 74 hp (55 kW), 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 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.
JCB will evaluate the product in the UK and respond to customer feedback before rolling the product out across the worldwide dealer network.
JCB Industrial Delivers Industry Specific Merchant Master Line
JCB Industrial has designed a range of four Teletruk materials handlers specifically for use in the builders merchants sector. The company,Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) to develop the four machines, all of which incorporate an improved list of standard equipment.
The four models include the two-wheel drive 30DTCR, the 30D4x4, the two-wheel drive 35DTCR and the 35D4x4. The machines benefit from a fully enclosed hydrostatic drive system and the choice of two-and four-wheel drive makes the compact load handlers ideal for both well surfaced yards and rougher site conditions, that would be unsuitable for a conventional fork lift truck.
The Merchant Master specification includes as standard a single carriage pin, a flashing beacon, a greasing kit and a reversing alarm.
The two two-wheel drive machines also come with a hydraulic flow divider as standard. As well as pallet forks, the units can be operated with bagging buckets, shovels, brick clamps and a host of specially designed attachments, delivering maximum versatility and return on investment for the merchant.
There are also a range of options available for the Merchant Master machines, designed to make life easier, safer and more productive in a merchant’s yard.
These include PPS industrial tyres for the two-wheel drive models and foam-filled traction pattern tyres for the 4x4s, a choice of partial or full cabs, a five-spool hydraulic valve block, 1,200 mm 3B forks, a vinyl seat covering, cab heater, vinyl door, panoramic mirrors, a quick disconnect sideshift or complete Changezee system, two quick disconnect couplings, additional working lights and a road lighting kit.
The JCB Changezee hydraulic quick-disconnect carriage allows the operator to swap between attachments in 30 seconds, without having to leave the safety of the cab.
The JCB Teletruk, first launched in 1997, has a telescopic boom rather than a conventional industrial fork lift mast. This single-sided boom allows the loading and unloading a road haulage truck from one side, greatly reducing the necessary space in a merchant’s yard and boosting productivity as there is less requirement for repositioning.
Maximum lift capacity is 3.0 tonnes for the 30D models and 3.5 tonnes for the 35D machines, while maximum lift height for the 30D is 4.0 m and they have a forward reach of up to 3.32 m. The 35D Teletruks can lift to a height of 4.4 m.
