JCB has been producing plantation machinery since 1945, when Joseph Cyril Bamford built his first trailer. We’ve always understood that, when it comes to plantation machinery, only the very greatest levels of performance and productivity will do.
That’s why we’ve always believed in developing specialised plantation machinery; Backhoe Loaders were introduced in 1953, Hydraulic Excavators in 1963, Loadalls in 1977 and Midi Excavators in 1983.
We’ve also always believed in using innovation and technology to make our agricultural equipment as efficient as possible. In 2006 we introduced TorqueLock to reduce fuel consumption and increase top speeds. In 2010 we patented Adaptive Load Control to improve safety and stability on our telescopic machines.
And we’re not stopping there with our plantation machinery either; we’ll carry on developing new solutions, improving and expanding our range to meet our customers’ future needs and expectations.
