The new range of site dumpers from JCB have been designed to directly address concerns over safety on site.
The first of a range of new JCB site dumpers are rolling off the company’s World HQ production line – including the new Hi-Viz model, designed to bring new levels of safety to the market.
The range being produced includes the seven-tonne payload JCB 7T-1 Front Tip Hi-Viz model designed to directly address growing industry concerns over accidents and serious injuries involving site dumpers on construction sites. The complete range is compliant with the latest safety legislation including ISO 5006:2017 and EN474.
JCB Site Dumper Managing Director Richard Butler said: “We are delighted that manufacturing is underway in the UK for a brand new range of JCB site dumpers, which will bring new levels of safety to the market through innovation.
“Reaction to the launch of this new range has been exceptional and customers can look forward to seeing the seven and three tonne models on the JCB stand at the Executive Hire Show in February.”
The JCB 7T-1 Front Tip Hi-Viz model features a reduced skip height and unique design which delivers huge improvements in visibility, while a longer wheelbase and lower centre of gravity boosts stability. Operator protection is assured through a ROPS/FOPS Level II JCB SITESAFE cab, which incorporates an integrated protection system, potentially allowing the operator to remain in the cab while being loaded.
