Added tools from JCB
By Lindsay Gale31 March 2009
JCB will be adding to its demolition and waste handling attachment ranges at Intermat.
Three new multiprocessors are likely to be on the JCB stand at Intermat, the 1,680 kg (3,696 lb) MP200, the 2,580 kg (5,676 lb) MP300 and the 3,480 kg (7,656 lb) MP400, designed to cover the 15-50 tonne carrier class.
They will be joined a seven-model line of selector grabs, suitable for use on carriers weighing from 10 to 46 tonnes. The SG series of grabs has been designed for heavy-duty applications - casing protects all major components, with the hydraulic cylinders and motors being full covered to maximise protection from damage.
Large diameter tempered pins and brushes, including dust seals, provide maximum service life, with hoses featuring wire guarding and a braided sleeve. A cross-line relief valve on the motor protects the hydraulic system from potential damage form pressure spikes originating from the carrier.
