tough gen­er­a­tion

Heat-bust­ing JCB QS se­ries gen­er­a­tors are on their way

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Plant & Equipment -

Nine mod­els from the new JCB QS range of mo­bile gen­er­a­tors built to with­stand the harsh­est en­vi­ron­ments are mak­ing their way to the Australian mar­ket.

The new mod­els are driven by JCB diesel en­gines that have been tested in around 200,000 ma­chines across the globe.

“Each model has three-stage fuel fil­ters and an op­tional self-clean­ing air fil­ter to pro­tect the en­gine from pre­ma­ture wear,” JCB Con­struc­tion Equip­ment Aus­tralia (JCB CEA) na­tional product man­ager Dave Mose­len says. “The whole range has been tested and op­er­ated to with­stand tem­per­a­tures over 50 de­grees Cel­sius so they can pro­vide non-stop power and per­for­mance no mat­ter where they are in­stalled.”

The gen­er­a­tors are en­cased in a steel canopy in­cor­po­rat­ing a sin­gle-piece roof that has been dipped in phos­phate and given a seven-stage paint process which JCB says de­liv­ers a highly durable fin­ish.

The gen­er­a­tors have large, heavy-duty ser­vice doors with re­mov­able hinges so op­er­a­tors can lift them off for even greater ac­ces­si­bil­ity. The steel doors and canopy also re­duce noise lev­els.

“The noise lev­els in the QS se­ries gen­er­a­tors are as low as 62dBA so they’re ideal for a range of ap­pli­ca­tions,” Mose­len says.

The QS se­ries also has the lat­est in JCB tech ad­vance­ments, such as re­mote con­nec­tion to

JCB LiveLink.

This is a sys­tem which of­fers real-time ma­chine in­for­ma­tion on main­te­nance, run hours and se­cu­rity sta­tus de­liv­ered straight to a PC, tablet or smart­phone.

LiveLink also al­lows op­er­a­tors to re­motely mon­i­tor and man­age the power lev­els of the gen­er­a­tors to suit var­i­ous con­di­tions.
