JCB Machines win ‘Environment Award’ accolade

The Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence have announced that the winners of the Environment Award is JCB Machines.

On LinkedIn the FLTA said “The Jury was impressed by your product’s zero emissions and minimal sound pollution. Not to mention, it’s the world’s FIRST electric telescopic forklift! Your company is an inspiring example of what the industry can do — and should do — to become ever cleaner and greener.”

JCB have been leading the way in clean technology and reducing harmful emissions, and their new 30-19E Teletruk is just one of a new generation of innovative products. Incredibly working with zero emissions at point of use with no compromise on performance, the unique design and build of the Teletruk has been crafted to help save you time and space, inside and outside.

And what’s more, this only scratches the surface of the JCB Electric range. With products ranging from the 525-60E Telehandler right through to the 19C-1E Mini Excavator, there’s a new discovery round every corner. All with the emphasis on zero emissions and recharging the construction industry with a much more streamlined and efficient way of working.

JCB EXPANDS E-TECH LINE WITH ELECTRIC DUMPSTER MODEL

One of the UK’s leading construction firms has purchased two JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavators.

The HTD-5e E-Dumpster is offered as a high-tip, walk-behind model, capable of carrying up to 500kg. The addition of electric drive makes the machine suitable for urban and indoor applications, that require low noise and zero exhaust emissions.

Key features include:
· 9kW electric motor delivers travel speeds of up to 3km/h 
· Maximum two-hour charging time
· Zero emissions at point of use
· 500kg capacity and 1,450mm skip ground clearance in tipping position

The E-Dumpster is powered by a 48V lithium-ion battery pack that can be recharged using a standard 240V or 110V electrical supply. Maximum recharge time is just two hours, making it possible to top up the battery when not in use during the working day or overnight.

Designed to meet the needs of contractors and rental companies, the E-Dumpster provides a zero-emissions carrying solution for indoor work, tunnelling applications and other urban sites requiring zero emissions equipment. With no internal combustion engine, service and maintenance requirements are also greatly reduced, boosting uptime and availability. 

JCB has taken an industry-leading position in the development of innovative E-Tech fully electric construction and industrial machinery. The company has already introduced the increasingly popular 19C-1E fully electric mini excavator and the 30-19E Teletruk industrial telescopic forklift. In addition, JCB offers a wide range of electrically-powered access platforms, while JCB’s Power Products division has launched a line of electric powerpacks, to provide recharging facilities for electric machinery in off-grid applications.

The HTD-5e E-Dumpster adds to this rapidly-growing range of zero-emissions construction, agricultural and industrial machinery solutions, offering customers additional choice in the compact dumper market.

Britain’s fastest tractor

JCB has set a new British speed record for tractors with its high-speed Fastrac tractor.

The JCB tractor notched up 103.6 mph at Elvington Airfield, near York, with motorcycle racer turned television presenter Guy Martin at the wheel.

The vehicle smashed the previous 87.27 mph record that was set in March 2018 by the BBC’s Top Gear team with its custom-made 500bhp V8-engined ‘Track-Tor’ driven by presenter Matt LeBlanc.

Guy Martin said: “It had been a great day with the JCB at Elvington, proper job with some right proper engineers. She felt rock steady on the runway, job’s a peach.”

A team of JCB engineers has been working on the secret project to develop the tractor over the past few months.

JCB Chairman Lord Bamford said: “We’ve long harboured a dream to attempt a speed record with the Fastrac and the whole team has worked tirelessly to achieve this amazing result. I’m extremely proud of what they have achieved in such a short space of time. It is British engineering at its best and it really does highlight the skills and innovation we have in our engineering team. They have done a truly fantastic job.”

It was Lord Bamford’s idea to develop a tractor which had a high road speed capable of field work and the speed record achieved yesterday came exactly 28 years to the day since the first production model rolled off the line.

JCB is no stranger to land speed records. In 2006, its DieselMax streamliner set a new diesel land speed record when it reached 350.092mph on Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA, using two JCB DieselMax engines. It’s a record that still stands to this day.

Based on the Staffordshire maker’s Fastrac farm tractor, the record-breaking tractor is powered by JCB’s 7.2 litre, 6-cylinder DieselMax engine produced at its factory in Derbyshire. Capable of delivering 1,000hp and 2,500Nm of torque, the Fastrac had been put on a diet and had its aerodynamics enhanced with the help of Williams Advanced Engineering.
