JCB has announced that an agricultural and groundworks contractor has bought the highest specification JCB site dumper ever ordered in Northern Ireland.
The new Stage V 9T-2 dumper has gone to Co. Down-based John Dan O’Hare, boasting additional features of a SiTESAFE cab with air chiller, Powershuttle 4-speed transmission, road-light kit, front screen guard, skip guard, flexible lower Hi Viz step, 360 vision camera kit, SiTESAFE radar, white noise reverse alarm, skip raise warning, and LED worklights.
As the largest site dumper in the JCB range, the manufacturer said the 9T-2 is designed to shift huge loads of material with ‘class-leading’ skip strength courtesy of thick steel side walls and heavy-duty steel front and base plates.
The model features a JCB SiTESAFE cab fitted with a Hammerglass front screen, and has been designed to withstand a front dump impact and side slewing impact from a 13-tonne excavator and side slewing impact from a 20-tonne excavator.
Brian O’Hare, director of John Dan O’Hare, said, “We were looking for a new site dumper and the JCB Stage V 9T-2 is a very good machine. The cab is a must for operator safety – with some sites demanding it now. With the weather in Ireland, it’s also essential for operator comfort.
“The 9-tonne model holds plenty of material and is easy to use. We added the high specification so it does everything we need it to do and it looks the part too. Dennison JCB are always a pleasure to deal with – they never let us down.”
