The JCB site dumper line-up will be based around four big-selling weight classes between one tonne and 10 tonnes.
The machines are made by Terex in Coventry and available for JCB to sell under its own colours as part of a £4.5m engine supply deal.
Terex uses 55kW (74hp) JCB Ecomax diesel engines in its six-tonne dumper models, making them EU Stage IIIB compliant, and JCB transmissions and transfer boxes in its six-, nine- and 10-tonne machines.
The compact one-tonne and two-tonne machines that JCB is now offering have been designed primarily for house-building and landscaping contractors, while 3/3.5-tonne models will suit general construction and rental businesses. At the heavier end, both six-tonne and 9/10-tonne dumpers provide carrying capacity for larger earthmoving projects.
High tip, forward tip and swivel skip models will be offered. Engine outputs range from 15.5kW to 90kW (20-120hp) and both synchro-shuttle and hydrostatic transmissions are available.
JCB chief innovation and growth officer Tim Burnhope said: “The addition of the site dumper product adds another dimension to the JCB product range. The JCB site dumper will have the fantastic benefit of being backed up by the JCB dealer network, with its renowned levels of service support.”
The JCB site dumper range is available from JCB dealers around the UK from February 2015 and will be progressively rolled out to overseas dealers at a later date.
