Default JCB high-vis dumper.

For those not on Facebook.

Certainly safer than the last dumper I drove. 9ton with a blind spot you could loose a car in, especially with a "full" skip.

JCB must be spending a fortune on Facebook advertising, have seen it 3 or 4 times in suggested posts today.

Looks weird but Incidently who cares about that.

Log overdue and hats of to jcb for leading the way again, all the other manufacturers just mess about with skip sizes and angles

I have read JCB will manufacturer there own dumpers by year end. It took longer than I thought but that was always comming when they signed with terex, a toe in the water as they say.. test the a market. it brakes a old gentleman's agreement between old man bamford and old man thwaites . However given the size of JCB now and the dumper market is changing I doubt JCB care

Reminds me of that article in last months Earthmovers where some company had spent thousands modifying a dumper into a 'BMT' (bulk material transporter ) with a cab, chipped keys, seatblet light, the works. Said it would increase machine utilisation by having one per site being used like a site forklift, with dedicated driver feeding many trades. What those idiots failed to comprehend is that a forklift is self loading, whereas a dumper is not, and also often needs to stick around for unloading too.

This is as giant leap in the right direction, but you will still need multiple units per site so let's hope the price isn't too bad. Or indeed the reliability....

Well there'll be no more bent steering wheels now, maybe a few with missing windscreens

I wonder if a swivel skip will work with this. It may not be that relevant on a 7 tonner as I don't know if the swivel variants are usually smaller machines?

Also what's the problem with standard forward control type dump trucks. Quite a few various makes and models of them have been available over the years. 4x4 or 6x6 with cabs etc.

I thought the same regarding the skip ............ looks a comical thing but ticks some boxes I suppose.

Hmm, yes, I can see what they are trying to achieve, and with a lot of materials it will be fine, but muck shifting, which lets face it, is a big part of what most dumpers will do on a building site, it's surely go a be a PITA......

I like the cab, I'd like to see a cab that rotates, or at least the driver in the cab rotates, so much of the traveling can be done with the cab/driver at the front, you won't get better visibility than that....
