Re: JCB's current Stable - 1.5-10t

I nearly came in earlier in this thread but Rory has given me the ideal entry :)

I am familiar with, and in favour of the JCB 2go system. Any system which makes the operator think twice, three or...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

This is running DC2 (fully proportional) controls with our joysticks. A twin hitch EC204 with gripper, installed, is around 16k; although we do tilty and bucket bundles. PM me if you want to talk...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

The TB225 has a plated weight of 2400kgs. (Auto) top hitch is c.25kgs and the tilty is a further 116kgs with about 40kgs for the gripper. Add three buckets - 12" cable bucket at 50kgs, 24" digging...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

I think the general consensus is to try to keep it to S30 in situations like this and, as always, it's down to individual circumstances. I don't doubt it's the right decision here.

To illustrate a...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

Ironically, the S standard defines the crossover from S30 to S40 at 2000kgs.:o

There is a balance to be struck between usability and product liability which, as a manufacturer, we cross at our...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

I'm sure the E26 can handle the difference, but if weight is a worry then go for the S30 - it's around 40kg lighter than the S40 version on the same tilty.

FYI, apart from the ability to swap...

Re: Tilty Advice please.

In that case I would agree with Aiden :eek: - the S30/S40 changeover is nominally around 2500kg.

The other thing to consider is whether you have any other diggers that you may want to run the...

Re: Everything is about to change!

In fairness, it tilts and rotates.

Given that it also wobbles, perhaps we could charge more for it.......

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Speaking as a manufacturer who uses all this jargon Ollie, I couldn't agree more :o

It's the bit in the middle (No. 2) that's tricky as there are so many variations on a theme. I'm OK with 1 and...

I have hope, Rory

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

SS5 is an old control system that goes back 10 or 15 years when tilties were being picked up by the railways, but it has been adapted to other applications since. For the record, I've only sold them...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Sorry, Nick - I missed this earlier.

The ECR25 is on the cusp between S30 and S40 in terms of hitch size. For an S30 mechanical hitch with a 9" cable bucket, 24" digging bucket with teeth and a...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Just to clarify, the SS9 control system does use the digger's own proportional controls, but in order to get a third (or fourth) control, it switches the tilt function through Aux1, Aux2, hitch and...

Re: So - an opinion - tiltys and prices !

Depends on the configuration. Since Engcon set up its UK operation at the end of 2014 we have invested a massive amount in stock - not just spares but tilties. This is what our part of our warehouse...
