JCB Updates Rough Terrain Forklift Range With Tier 4 Engine | Construction News

JCB will display its latest rough terrain forklift (RTFL) range featuring the new Tier 4 JCB Ecomax diesel engine at ConExpo 2014. The Ecomax engine will be fitted to all three models in JCB’s North American RTFL range: the 930, 940 and 950.

The JCB Ecomax engine features a highly efficient combustion design that reduces exhaust emissions and delivers improved fuel consumption, reducing running costs for operators. With ultra-high fuel injection pressures, variable geometry turbocharging, and cooled exhaust gas recirculation, the JCB Ecomax engine meets Tier 4 emissions standards with no requirement for a costly DPF or for complex after-treatment.

The JCB Ecomax engine runs on standard lubricating oils and service intervals remain at 500 hours, apart from an additional crankcase ventilation filter that requires a change at 1,500 hours.

Available with a four-speed Synchro Shuttle transmission for maximum durability and ease of use, the revised machines feature increased hydraulic flow, now 20 gpm, for faster lift and lower cycle times, increased productivity and reduced fuel consumption.

The 930, 940, and 950 models have lifting capacities of 6,000 – 10,000 lbs. with mast lift heights of 15-22 ft.  There are new front and rear-mounted working lights available and the machines can be ordered with a canopy or a fully glazed cab, with the option of integrated air conditioning, improving the driving environment for the operator.
