JCB is introducing three new site dumper models to Canada and the United States with payloads ranging from 5,900 kg to 9,070 kg.

The innovative new dumper range is designed and built by JCB to be the safest in the industry, according to the company.

The new JCB site dumper range includes the 6T-1 with either a front or swivel-tip bucket and 6,000 kg capacity, the 7T-1 Hi-Viz with front-tip and 7,000 kg capacity, and the 9T-1 with front-tip and 9,000 kg capacity.

“The JCB site dumper range offers a safer solution for customers and demonstrates JCB’s innovative approach to machine design and development,” said Diego Butzke, product manager for JCB North America.

“For contractors, landscapers, home builders and highway workers, JCB site dumpers are a highly productive alternative for moving bulk materials around the work site.”

EcoMAX engine

The three JCB site dumper models are powered by the company’s 74 hp JCB EcoMAX diesel engine, which meets Tier 4 Final regulations with no aftertreatment. JCB axles and powershuttle transmission ensures power is delivered efficiently, according to the company.

Level 2 frame

Common features across the JCB site dumper range, include standard folding ROPS/FOPS Level 2 frame that is designed to withstand the slewing impact from a 13 tonne excavator.

Optional ROPS/FOPS Level 2 cab with integrated protection; front camera, reverse alarm as standard and an optional white noise alarm; seat belt switch logic to ensure the operator is correctly seated; LiveLink telematics with geo-fencing and curfew alert functionality; and ground-level service access and 360-degree access to the engine.

JCB site dumpers also offer advanced stability to decrease the risk of overturning.

Wider wheel base

By increasing the wheelbase, widening the wheel track and lowering the bucket height, the payload centre of gravity is reduced by 16 per cent and maneuverability is maintained.

Additionally, an alarm alerts nearby workers of the dumper’s imminent movement and a speedometer ensures the operator is able to comply with site speed restrictions.

Available options for the three new dumpers  include a green LED beacon, high visibility painted steps and grab handles, rear view mirrors, 360-degree cameras, object detection systems and LED working lights.
