The flow-sharing hydraulic system, with a maximum flow rate of 44 gallons/min, makes it easy to multifunction while operating the piling equipment.

The new in-cab electronic display provides operators with all the key information they need for accurate piling: verticality, piling depth and pressure indicators for downforce/applied rotary torque.

ON THE MOVE

A travel height of under 14 feet ensures that the new JCB Pilingmaster complies with road regulations* and allows easy site access. – need to verify this.

As with most JCB backhoe loaders, the JCB Pilingmaster backhoe travels on the road at speeds up to 25 mph to enable rapid and easy mobilization between sites. Additionally, limited slip differentials optimize traction in all ground conditions and help to reduce tire wear.
