JCB Cab construction continues
Investment in JCB Cab Systems factory is one of the biggest in its history and work forges ahead with a summer opening target on the new £50m project. It will result in one of the most advanced cab production lines in the world with computer-controlled manufacturing systems. 400 employees will relocate from Rugeley, U.K, and it is hoped that it will result in improved efficiencies to support growth plans by JCB.

Australian Demolition Company slashes fuel costs
Since purchasing a JCB JS200LC, 20 tonne heavy tracked excavator to replace his old machine the owner of a demolition company has noticed considerable savings in his fuel costs of up to $400 a week.
The JCB JS200LC has been designed to provide exception efficiency, productivity, strength, safety, comfort and be easy to maintain. Only the best components are used including the rubber excavator tracks, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba main control valves.
Compact Track Loaders
Heavy equipment trends over the past decade reveal no bigger success than that of compact track loaders. They are durable, versatile and cost-effective loaders and have continued to reign in the compact equipment industry because of their power and ability to work in all seasons.
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) shows that compact track loader sales have grown by roughly 20% in the agriculture market from 2015-2017.
Powerful pushing, digging and lifting performance; exceptional traction; minimal ground disturbance; increased flotation; and attachment versatility are just a few of the features and benefits that make compact track loaders one of the most popular machines in the agriculture industry.

New Agricultural Rubber Tracks
New in to the GTW range are heavy duty agricultural tracks, designed with extended wear life in mind.
Designed with wide and deep tread lugs, our agricultural tracks offer increased traction and better mud release. Produced with enhanced rubber compounds and extra thick main cables, the result is a strong carcass with stretch prevention. With an intelligent design, our tracks provide increased flotation and decreased compaction for wet mud and soil conditions.
Our joint-less technology and one step vulcanisation of tread bars, drive lugs and track carcass result in increased adhesion strength and minimised tearing off of the bars.
For extensive farming, lower vibrations allow the use of large attachments as well as improved ground power for lower fuel usage.
Global Track Warehouse are now producing OEM rubber tracks for a number of major manufacturers including Caterpillar, Case, John Deere and New Holland.

New JCB Excavator launched
The JCB 15C-1 weighs in at 1.5 tonnes, and is built on the same design as the larger midi excavators. It is powered by the powerful 11.7kw engine with steel bodywork and 500 hour greasing intervals.
The new model will be aimed at the tool hire and rental markets, using a shorter undercarriage, it offers single speed tracking, and mechanical track tensioners. The 100% steel bodywork will provide maximum protection for components in the event of accidents while on site. A fully ROPS-compliant cab can also be specified, with flat glazing all round, for easy replacement. Despite its small size, the mini excavator does benefit from the latest generation cab available on larger models, which has 24% more internal space than previous JCB machines.
All the next generation mini excavators come with 10 tie down points, which make it easier to transport the machines without undue risk of damage. They offer wide opening fold-out rear doors allowing excellent service access, and the 500 hour greasing intervals will reduce downtime and operating costs.

New Models for Caterpillar
Caterpillar the Excavator manufacturer has just introduced three new models to their range of 20 ton class excavators, Cat 320 GC, Cat 320 and Cat 323. The new models boast lower maintenance and fuel costs and improved all-round operating efficiency.
The Cat 320 and 323 have the latest Cat Connect Technology which has been developed to increase operating efficiency by as much as 45% over traditional grading operations. Operators can use the 2D system to work accurately and quickly to achieve the necessary grade, and can work more safely around traffic and below buildings or structures.
The new models have improved fuel consumption of up to 25% with reduced maintenance costs of around 15%, for more information on Excavator track replacement call GTW Australia.
JCB announce teleskid
JCB used the Conexpo trade show to announce a new research and development product, called JCB teleskid, a JCB chief officer stated that “The JCB Teleskid can do the work of four machines – a telescopic handler, masted forklift, compact loader and a skid steer, all in one easily-serviced machine. The telescopic boom will allow operators to load trucks without a ramp, reach over kerbing and dig below ground, all with clear visibility of the attachment.” The new machine can extend 2.4m forwards, which is over 50% more than similar machines. The vehicle boasts the new low emission 74hp/55kW JCB Ecomax engine, which complies with both the strict European and American emission standards.
