Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter wheeled ex­ca­va­tor

JCB Con­struc­tion Equip­ment Aus­tralia has in­tro­duced the Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter wheeled ex­ca­va­tor, specif­i­cally de­signed for waste and re­cy­cling ap­pli­ca­tions

The JCB Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter is a dig­ging, lift­ing, load­ing and tool-car­ry­ing solution en­gi­neered with mu­nic­i­pal waste and re­cy­cling op­er­a­tions in mind.

The Wastemas­ter wheeled ex­ca­va­tor fea­tures a full FOPS cab with all-around vis­i­bil­ity from the op­er­a­tor’s chair. From ground level the all-round vis­i­bil­ity also al­lows ground staff to see the op­er­a­tor at all times. In ad­di­tion, a white noise rev­ers­ing alarm and red and white chevrons also help to im­prove site safety.

The 11.5-tonne Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter sits on a sturdy all-wheel drive, four-wheel steer chas­sis based on JCB’s Load­all tele­han­dler range. This gives the Wastemas­ter three-mode steer­ing for in­creased ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity and sta­bil­ity when trav­el­ling at speed.

The 81kW Tier 4 Eco­max en­gine is side mounted on the lower struc­ture of the Wastemas­ter, which gives the ma­chine a cen­tre of grav­ity much lower than that seen on com­pa­ra­ble 10-tonne-plus mod­els.

Mount­ing the en­gine to the lower chas­sis means the up­per struc­ture has a re­duced tail swing of just 120mm, al­low­ing the Wastemas­ter to work on the most con­fined waste sites and land­fills.

“The lower cen­tre of grav­ity also makes the JCB Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter in­cred­i­bly sta­ble when work­ing with se­lect­ing and ma­te­ri­als han­dling grabs at full reach,” JCB CEA na­tional ex­ca­va­tor and wheeled loader prod­uct man­ager Deon Cope says. “The re­duced tail swing means the JCB Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter can lift more than com­pet­i­tive con­ven­tional tail-swing ma­chines.” Cus­tomers can choose be­tween a mono boom or a triple-ar­tic­u­lat­ing TAB boom with three dip­per lengths of 1,650mm, 2,000mm and 2,250mm to suit a range of ap­pli­ca­tions.

JCB has also stream­lined main­te­nance with all daily ser­vice checks able to be car­ried out from ground level with a lift-up en­gine canopy pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the en­gine and fil­ters.

“The JCB Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter of­fers the best SAE ser­vice rating in its class – 33 per cent bet­ter than its clos­est com­peti­tor – and there is no re­quire­ment for op­er­a­tors to climb on the up­per struc­ture for reg­u­lar main­te­nance,”

Cope says.

The lower cen­tre of grav­ity also makes the JCB Hy­dradig Wastemas­ter in­cred­i­bly sta­ble.
