Well done to JCB who have just one the largest contracts in the history of the industry.
1000 backhoe loaders will be supplied to the Brazilian government to provide muscle to the build of infrastructure and roads throughout Brazil. They will also help in the construction of thousands of miles of secondary roads where access had previously been tricky or hazardous for example in farming rural areas of this huge country.
The deal is worth 60 million pounds to JCB, which will help this Dynamic company ho from strength to strength.
There are currently 4 main stream models of backloader provided by JCB, the 1CX 2CX 3CX and 4CX
They all carry the well known 4 wheel steering, all have a large digger bucket at the front and a smaller excavating bucket at the back, with the addition of great balance and operator comfort they are sure to be enjoyed by the workers in Brazil.
Just a few advantages of why JCB may have been selected for such a responsibility
- ECODig is a 3 pump hydraulic system, it keeps a large flow, but can give a 15% reduction in carbon emissions, and a further 15% on fuel usage.
- JCB place large emphasis on their vehicle testing, for example they will with every new model check 100 loading cycles, they test on all ground throughout the world for every application method. They ensure they check 360,000 gear change cycles.
- Comfort – Say no more they’ve got an In-cab cool box, obviously for your favorite pop. They use 3 control patterns to make life handling whilst working easier and more efficient.
