JCB's versatile Hydradig is now being offered in North America
JCB is now introducing its versatile Hydradig 110W to the North American market. The machine offers a wide array of tool-carrying solutions, as well as good all round visibility, stability, manoeuvrability, mobility and serviceability according to the firm. JCB claims that the Hydradig offers high performance for digging, lifting, loading and tool-carrying operations. It suits duties in a wide range of applications including urban construction, highway maintenance and municipal operations. Stability is said to be better than for conventional wheeled excavators due to its low centre of gravity, which allows stable lifting and higher travel speeds.
The machine can travel at speeds of up to 40km/h on road, while it offers good serviceability, with ground level access to all maintenance points. The chassis is also proven as it is based on the firm’s established Loadall telescopic handler concept. It has three-mode steering for manoeuvrability and stability when travelling at speed. For the North American market, it will be powered by the latest Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV compliant JCB EcoMAX diesel engine, equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR).
