By partnering with its customers, JCB is able to offer tailored specifications and option packages to suit a wide range of industry sectors. Now, the JCB 8018 Contractor specification model provides utility contractors with a compact excavator specifically designed to work on busy urban jobsites.
JCB now offers double the number of hydraulic breakers designed to work with its range of excavators, backhoe loaders and compact equipment lines by launching its “Contractor Hammer Range." Contractor breakers will be available alongside the existing professional line of hydraulic hammers. Both Professional and Contractor breakers will come with a three-year warranty.
JCB is donating a 3CX backhoe loader to help rescue and clean-up operations in Ecuador, which was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday, resulting in the deaths of at least 570 people and injuries to over 7,000 people. It has been reported that 25,000 people remain in shelters as a consequence of the devastating earthquake that has been described by the country’s President Rafael Correa as the biggest tragedy in Ecuador in seven decades.
JCB’s Loadall has been one of the world’s most popular telescopic handlers for many years, with innovative design and engineering excellence. The Loadall has provided materials handling and lifting solutions for construction, agricultural and industrial markets for almost four decades. JCB celebrates the production of its 200,000th award-winning Loadall telehandler, a milestone in materials handling history.
Because of their unique design, JCB’s Tier 4 Final engines offer easier maintenance and better resale, qualities that are especially important for certain industries, including rental. Engines over 74 hp meet stringent Tier 4 Final emissions legislation by using a compact, highly efficient SCR system for NOx reduction, requiring no diesel particulate filter (DPF). Engines less than 74 hp require no DPF and no DEF utilizing JCB’s innovative, efficient combustion technology to handle emissions within the engine combustion chamber.
The JCB 457 features a completely new cab, engine cover and rear counterweight design. The 457 meets emission standards without a DPF. The 7.7-litre MTU Tier 4 Final engine delivers 258 hp (193 kW), up from 250 hp (186 kW) on the previous machine. The engine delivers this increased output at lower rated engine revs, cutting fuel consumption, noise and emissions. JCB has also fine-tuned the match between engine, torque converter and transmission to perfectly match the engine with both the standard four-speed and optional five-speed transmissions. Fuel savings are around 16 percent over the previous model.
