Greg Sealey of JCB CEA details the latest development in the company’s evolving Wastemaster range.
Telescopic handler manufacturer JCB first pioneered the telehandler concept in 1977 and has continued to develop the concept to meet the needs of waste companies and contractors.
While once a novelty, telescopic handlers are now used extensively throughout the waste industry – maximising productivity through versatile material handling.
Greg Sealey, JCB CEA National Product Manager, says the company is committed to delivering equipment that facilitates high resource recovery rates, production, supply and delivery of quality recycled materials.
“The JCB Wastemaster range is built to thrive in arduous conditions, with legendary JCB build quality and dependability as standard,” he says.
“A host of specialist features provide extra protection for equipment and operators.”
The extensive machine range includes the 525-60, 531-70, 541-70, 535-95 and 560-80 models.
“Powered by Kohler and JCB’s own EcoMAX diesel engines, the JCB line-up of Wastemaster Loadalls are easy to operate, reliable, durable and quick to turnaround for use in the waste industry,” Sealey says.
“The 531-70 and 541-70 models have also recently been upgraded to include single-lever proportional boom and auxiliary operator controls for ease of use in the rental sector.”
According to Sealey, JCB designed the Wastemaster Loadall using extensive understanding of the challenges faced by the waste and recycling industry.
With that in mind, JCB built a range of equipment solutions that manage everything from handling various waste streams, to coping with the downtime caused by time-consuming punctures.
“The latest JCB Loadalls represent the ultimate in innovation, low cost of ownership, power, productivity, safety, serviceability and environmental performance,” Sealey says.
The JCB Wastemaster range caters for all waste applications, from handling bales to loading trucks and performing bulk or general handling duties.
Each model incorporates traditional JCB strengths including ruggedness, reliability, structural integrity, performance, visibility and safety.
“With the use of JCB’s purpose-designed attachment range further enhancing the tasks possible, this range of JCB Loadalls offers exceptional versatility for all materials handling applications,” Sealey explains.
“Class-leading JCB hydraulics also produce the fastest cycle times, ensuring the most efficient lifting, extending and pushing.”
With a focus on ergonomics, JCB has designed the Wastemaster Loadall range to be intuitive and comfortable to operate.
“A focus on quality means the JCB manufactured Loadall engine, transmission, axles, hydraulic rams and cab are all designed to work perfectly together, so there is no compromise on performance,” Sealey says.
“Along with quality and durability, another key factor in maximizing machine uptime is easy serviceability.”
He adds that with a JCB Loadall, all checks are quick, simple and safe to carry out from the ground level and most service intervals, including boom lubrication at 500 hours.
All models are fitted standard with telematics and five-year access to JCB LiveLink.
“LiveLink Telematics gives machine operators and fleet managers access to all data at the click of a button through an online portal,” Sealey says.
