LAMMA 2019 is to kick off in early January of next year, in what is the UK’s largest agricultural machinery show.
It lays the claim of being the leading indoor agricultural event and will take place on January 8th to 9th at the NEC in Birmingham. Ahead of this year’s event, JCB have already revealed the fleet of machinery that they will showcase there.
The most comprehensive range of loading and materials handling solutions of any manufacturer will be highlighted by JCB at the LAMMA show, with examples of a diverse choice of machines to be displayed alongside the unique JCB Fastrac tractor range.
In addition to examples of the JCB Loadall – the World’s Number 1 telescopic handler range – there will be wheeled loaders from both ends of the performance spectrum, telescopic wheeled loaders, skid-steer loaders with fixed length and unique telescopic mono booms, the Teletruk hard-surface telescopic forklift and a compact excavator to illustrate the wide scope of what JCB Agriculture dealers throughout the UK and Ireland can supply.
The JCB telescopic handler range offers a machine for every farm size and working situation, with a number to make an appearance at LAMMA 2019.
They go from the ultra-compact 516-40 AGRI with its 1600kg lift capacity, 4 metre lift height and 47hp engine, to the 560-80 AGRI bulk handling machine with 6 tonnes lift capacity to 8 metres.
In addition to four-speed and six-speed powershift transmissions, JCB AGRI Pro versions of all 6 metre to 9.5 metre Loadall handlers are available with the unique DualTech VT hydro-mechanical transmission. This offers the best of both worlds in terms of low-speed control, ease of driving and fuel efficient sustained towing. Watch the 560-80 in action below!
Wheeled loaders -
There is a similarly broad spectrum of performance in the JCB wheeled loader range, which will be showcased at LAMMA.
This includes the newly-developed ultra-compact 403 AGRI with 36hp and hydrostatic drive. The other featured loader will be the 258hp 457 AGRI bulk store re-handling and loading machine.
Between these extremes come no fewer than 10 further models catering for contractors, livestock and arable farms, and feed and fertiliser processing plants. This includes the 230hp JCB 435S AGRI, which has the best power-to-weight ratio in its class for efficient silage clamp and muck heap operations.
Five machines with the added versatility of a telescopic boom starts with the 62hp TM180. This features a 1,800kg lift capacity to 4.5 metres and will feature at LAMMA . Next up is the JCB TM420, with 145hp and a 4.1 tonne lift capacity to 5.4 metres.
Skid-steer loaders and telescopic forklifts -
Where working situations demand the ultimate in compact size and agility, then JCB’s skid-steer loaders have the solution for you. These will also be on show at the Birmingham-based Agri event.
They come with fixed-length mono boom models providing operating capacities from 700kg to 1500kg on wheels. They have operating capabilities from 840kg to 1450kg on rubber tracks. The line-up also includes the unique Teleskid versions that add a new dimension to the versatility and load-placement capabilities of these machines with a telescopic boom, alongside the safety and efficiency credentials of the side door cab access.
The three-model JCB Teletruk range, with lift capacities from 2.7 to 3.5 tonnes, provides similar load placement and recovery versatility on hard surfaces in locations such as vegetable storage and processing plants.
Compact excavators -
A growing range of compact 360-degree excavators available from JCB Agriculture dealers will be illustrated by the JCB 19C-1.
This is a 1.94 tonne digger with a choice of three dipper lengths for digging depths to 2.81 metres and surface reach of 4.22 metres.
With a line-up starting with the micro-size 8008 CTS weighing in at 850kg, the UK-built JCB compact excavator range provides a highly mobile solution for farm drainage, buildings works, water pipe installation and a host of other applications.
Fastrac tractors -
For tractor enthusiasts who will be in attendance in Birmingham this coming January, JCB will be showcasing the Fastrac range.
The JCB Fastrac continues to lead the way in operator comfort, safe and legal high-speed road travel. It offers unrivalled versatility and carries out efficient field work.
At the LAMMA 2019 show, the 175-348hp range will be represented by the Fastrac 4220 and 8330, with a demount sprayer and a ‘utility’ version equipped for non-agricultural applications. Highlighted will be the productivity-boosting rear, front and deck-mounting flexibility of the design.
