JCB Offers Demolition Package for Skid Steers, CTLs

A new demolition application package is available across JCB's 18 skid steer and compact track loader models. This new specialty package provides the additional durability and safety features required to meet the increasingly rigorous demands of the demolition industry, according to the company.

It includes a fire extinguisher, Level 2 FOPS guard, a twine cutter (wheeled models only), front screen guard and heavy-duty rear bars. Canopy models require the front impact protection option to accommodate the new demolition package.

Pressurized JCB cab model SSLs and CTLs reduce dust and debris exposure to harmful airborne materials. Additional operator safety is built in with JCB’s “PowerBoom” design which uses a single arm rather than the conventional two-arm skid steer design. This enables the use of a left-side entry door, allowing the operator to enter and exit the machine clear of the attachment and loader arm regardless of arm position. There is also a large front emergency exit.

The design also provides 270-degree visibility, a 60% advantage over competitive manufacturers, the company states. A large rear service door allows for easy access to the engine and daily maintenance checkpoints. Machine protection is enhanced by the routing of hydraulic hoses through the boom to prevent damage from impact in confined spaces on site.

JCB’s line of skid steer and compact track loaders range from 6,153 to 11,596 lb operating weights and are powered by 48 hp  to 74 hp no-DPF JCB Diesel Tier 4 Final engines. JCB custom builds each unit to the customer’s specifications. Customers can choose from radial or vertical lift, wheeled or tracked, cab or canopy and a variety of other options.
