The safety systems on our machines are up to date with the latest industry standards.

  • The emergency descent handle is located at the back of the machine, which can be accessed even when positioned close to a wall, along with the emergency brake release handle for quick access during an emergency.
  • The pothole protection system is a key element of the safety system, activating only when the machine is fully deployed. Our design is strong and protected to ensure continuous operation.
  • As the basket gets close to the ground, there is a safety stop and a 3-second delay to remind the operator to check the area before fully closing the scissor pack.
  • A high-grip step design provides a secure grip for safe entry and exit.


The complete pivot boss design on the scissor pack provides stability and durability that have been proven through our engineering experience with other JCB machines.

  • We have included motor protection plates to protect these high-cost components from collision damage, based on our experience with other equipment.
  • The scissor mechanism's sliding pivots are entirely housed within a large nylon block for increased stability.
  • An automotive-style foot pedal for releasing the extension deck provides intuitive and ergonomic operation.
  • JCB's unique battery and hydraulic door wear pads ensure the weight is supported whilst closed, preventing the doors from dropping over time.


The design of the controller cradle allows for operation away from the machine itself, making it ideal for manoeuvring through tight spaces.

  • Platform outlet in basket facilitates the easy connection of power tools
  • The ergonomically designed door handle is easy and safe to use, even with gloved hands.
  • The roller design for the extension deck takes very little effort to extend or retract. And the foot pedal lets you extend the deck while you'reyou are at height without any hassle.
