JCB Demolition Attachment

JCB’s new demolition application package is available across its entire range of 18 skid steer and compact track loader models. This new specialty package was designed to equip JCB skid steers with the additional durability and safety features required to meet the increasingly rigorous demands of the demolition industry. 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 boasts 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 which could prove crucial in potentially hazardous applications. The JCB PowerBoom provides 270 degree visibility. 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 – 74 hp no-DPF JCB Diesel Tier 4 Final engines. JCB custom builds each unit. Customers can choose from radial or vertical lift, wheeled or tracked, cab or canopy and a variety of other options.
