JCB Groundcare comes to IOG Saltex 2008 with a tailor-made range of specialist equipment for the grounds maintenance sector - boasting class leading models for landscaping and grounds maintenance professionals. The stand will see the two new models - the JCB Groundhog 4x4 utility vehicle and the JCB FM30 out-front mower - both now in full production.
The new JCB Groundhog 4x4 takes utility vehicle performance to new levels. The four-wheel drive model is tough, versatile and reliable - opening up a vast range of potential applications in the estate management, golf course management and landscaping sectors. It is powered by a 19.5kW (26hp) diesel engine, delivering impressive torque and a top speed of 50kph (31mph). The result is unrivalled performance and handling whether in arduous ground conditions, on hilly terrain or road travelling between sites.
The FM30 is JCB Groundcare's first-ever out front mower, designed to reduce costs and improve performance on a wide variety of mowing applications. Purpose built for specialist grounds maintenance professionals, it is rugged, productive and extremely versatile. Powered by a low vibration, low noise and low emission engine the new mower is cost effective, reliable and provides day-long comfort for the operator to enhance productivity. The model is available with a choice of cutting decks including an innovative twin-flail version - ideal for cutting high scrub in one pass. On stand will be two FM30's shown with rotary and flail decks and a preview of its FM25 stable-mate.
The new models will feature alongside the proven models from across its extensive range including four compact tractors ranging from 27 to 60hp, the original Groundhog 6x4, the Mini CX, the 8018 mini excavator, the 8008 micro excavator and HTD5 tracked Dumpster.
