JCB India Limited, India’s
leading manufacturer of Earthmoving and Construction Equipment, showcased an
exciting line up of innovative and intelligent machines at the 9th edition of
Excon 2017 in Bengaluru.
JCB India is the first
manufacturer in the world to offer Easy Shift AMT on a Backhoe Loader. It
allows gear shifting to take place with no operator effort through a rotating
knob below steering wheel thus, replacing the gear lever. This facilitates ease
of operation, a rested operator and also ensures better productivity.
This new Backhoe Loader is
packed with 30 new innovative features, including 15 industry firsts, and five
World’s first such as an SOS switch, Economy and Power Mode, Guide me home,
Smart App machine Diagnostics.
Being a full range
infrastructure equipment partner, JCB also introduced an all new 38T Tracked
Excavator with two variants – the JCB 380LC Xtra and the JCB 380LC Quarry
Master (QM). The JCB380LCQM offers 16% Higher Lifting Capacity owing to a
combination of high hydraulic power and high operating weight and provides 6%
more output while handling blocks. The JCB Dieselmax engine return a 3% high
fuel efficiency and generates high torque at low speed to suit the job needs.
The JCB 380LC Xtra comes with
a powerful engine and its hydraulic performance gives the power to do more than
expected. The wide range of heavy duty buckets can be used as per different
applications and strata to maximise output which is available from 1.4 to 2.3
cu.m. Power boost feature increases hydraulic system pressure to provide higher
digging force and lifting capacity when needed.
The JCB 116 Soil Compactor is
a first in the industry to have Compaction Monitoring System (CMS) integrated
with Livelink. The CMS ensures uniform compaction by optimising the overall
compaction process. The on-board Digital display for real time monitoring ensures
accuracy in compaction, helps to reduce number of passes and saves fuel and
time. This unique system not only improves the quality of compaction, but also
provides real time alerts on over-compaction.
The Loader Productivity
Management System (LPMS) in the JCB455ZX helps in real time monitoring of
individual weight of loaded bucket, Total Accumulated Weight, Tare weight, and
Number of loaded buckets. Its integration with JCB LiveLink is another Industry
First that is used to transmit the monitored value to server for analytics and
Excon also saw JCB introducing
its range of Livelink enabled Diesel Gensets. The new range of diesel
generators is designed to meet user requirements in terms of performance,
serviceability, strength, safety and space. On display was the comprehensive
range of world class Gensets ranging from 125kVA to 200kVA.
Also on display was the
revolutionary range of Material Handling Equipment – the Telehandlers, the Skid
Steer Loaders and the Super Loader. JCB
has been pioneering the concept of Telehandlers globally since 1977 and has
remained the world's first choice in this segment ever since. In India, JCB
offers three variants of Telehandlers – a 7m lift height machine known as the
530-70, an 11m lift height machine known as 530-110, and a 17m lift height
machine which is the imported 540-170. The 7m Telehandler is the Waste Master
machine; designed for the waste recycling industry.
These machines are extensively
used for material handling applications such as loading, unloading, placing and
lifting material at various heights and reaches. Through the use of various
attachments, this versatile machine offers the perfection of 4 machines in 1.
JCB Skid Steers are the
world’s safest Skid Steers as they come with a unique side door entry. This
compact and versatile machine is available in two variants - the 135 and the
155. Skid Steers are ideal to operate in urban infrastructure applications or
for narrow and areas which space is a restriction.
The JCB Super Loader is a
perfect blend of value, versatility and performance. It is designed as a
dedicated loader for loading applications at higher heights. At present, JCB
offers two variants in the Indian market, a 3.1m dump height machine and a
machine with a 4.0m dump height.
This range of JCB machines was
accompanied by a wide range of attachments such as Rock Breakers, Power Grab,
Unloading Rock, Concrete Block Handler, Vibratory Roller, Industrial Grappler,
General Purpose Shovel, Side Shift Fork, Crane Hook - Fork Mounted, Man
Platform, Side Dump Bucket and Rib Erectors among others which were also seen
