BUILD QUALITY AND RELIABILITY

Huge amounts of expertise and innovation have gone into the new range of JCB site dumpers. They’re exceptionally rugged and durable, built ready to tackle anything the rental market can throw at them.

State-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques help to achieve the very highest levels of build quality.

Precision machining techniques ensure high tolerances and accurate location of your 6T dumper’s pins and bushes.

Your new JCB site dumper will have benefitted from finite element analysis and rig testing to ensure superior structural strength and durability. For further peace of mind, cold cell testing guarantees starting performance down to -15°C.

Heavy duty damage-resistant articulated chassis and skips help your machine to withstand everything. What’s more, because it articulates and oscillates centrally, strength and reliability are maximised on even the toughest work sites.

A JCB 6T-1 dumper’s skip strength is class-leading courtesy of thick steel side walls and heavy duty steel front and base plates.

COMFORT

JCB SiTESAFE cab with heater as standard, protecting the operator from the elements and ensuring productivity. Two-door lock-back and ajar stays for ventilation and effective communication.

Perfectly matched JCB drivetrain ensuring smooth gear change, balanced weight distribution ensuring superior roading performance.

Effortless access/egress through well-positioned steps and grab handles. Flexible and Hi-Viz yellow painted steps and handles option.

EASE OF OPERATION

The JCBEcoMAX engine requires no after treatment, lowering owning and operating costs.

Leading service access with up to 2% lower SAE serviceability rating.

Easy and fast servicing is essential to any rental machine, so a 6T JCB site dumper features exceptionally easy ground level service access with a tilting seat base and engine canopy providing maximum access to all areas.

Swivel tip variant features an effortless skip lower locking design.

Flat skip side designs enable effective material discharge and easy cleaning.

SAFETY

Exceptional levels of research have gone in to making the JCB site dumper range the safest in the industry.

Folding ROPS/FOPS level II with optional folding ROPS frame. JCB’s manufacturers recommendation is FOPS protection, folding ROPS frame is site and risk assessment dependent. Additional levels of protection and comfort are also available through the innovative JCB SiTESAFE cab.

To protect those working around the JCB 6T-1, a front camera is fitted as standard which expands the operator's visibility to comply with ISO 5006:2017.  Options include side/rear cameras and object detection systems. Further protection is achieved through a sequenced two-stage drive inhibit system: the operator needs to be sat on the seat with the lap belt engaged before driving.

Optional JCB SiTESAFE cab is designed to withstand a front dump impact and side slewing impact from a 13 tonne excavator.

An audible initial movement alarm alters any pedestrians in the near vicinity of the machines imminent movement.

A speedometer ensures compliance with site speed restrictions.

The safety features don't end there; green LED seat belt indicator beacon, white noise reverse alarm, and high visibility painted steps and grab rails are all available as optional add-ons.

ULTIMATE PRODUCTIVITY

Packed with safety features, an exceptionally tough chassis design and superior ergonomics help to explain why JCB site dumpers are proving extremely popular for material movement and tipping on a huge variety of sites.

An all JCB drivetrain maximises performance through a tailored design solution.

The JCB EcoMax Tier 4 Final engine is a durable water-cooled unit incorporating an array of state-of-the-art features to maximise power, torque and economy. Superior power management helps to keep productivity and profitability levels high.

Tapered, simple skip geometry ensures smooth material ejection when tipping.

Wheel-to-ground contact has been maximised on this dumper thanks to large oscillation angles. The resulting superb traction aids off-road performance and boosts productivity still further.
