JCB Industrial, part of Eqstra Industrial Equipment (EIE), will participate along with other equipment manufacturers at Bauma Conexpo Africa, touted to be among the biggest construction and mining machinery expos in the world.

The JCB Loadall allows for mining operations in addition to advanced technical specifications, said EIE. The unique boom system, available in boom lengths of less than 10 metres (suitable for mining) features a U-shaped boom design, enabling it to act as a loading shovel material handling machine, and which can also be configured with a man platform. The wide range of attachments available for JCB Loadalls is one of the reasons for their exceptional versatility.

The weight of the machine is built into the chassis, making the loadall extremely stable. Manouverability is enhanced by the narrow chassis, sound steering with three steer modes. The JCB Dieselmax engine is installed in the new model, as it provides high power and torque at low engine speeds.

JCB is considered the pioneer of telehandlers and has a wide range of loadalls to offer to many industries. Specifically, in the Southern African market, JCB offers the Teletruk, Rough Terrain Forklift and Loadalls, added EIE.

In line with its commitment to forging partnerships for life with its customers, EIE offers flexible sale and rental options and fully supports its JCB users over the complete product lifecycle. This ranges from financing assistance, to maintenance contracts, operator and maintenance staff training and spares as well as aftermarket support.
