Wraps Come Off Tier IV Final Telescopic Loader for Construction

📅   Fri June 30, 2017 - Southeast Edition #14


The TM320 has a maximum 7,054 lb. (3,200 kg) lift capacity, which is available to a full lift height of 17 ft. (5.2 m) as well as from ground level. It delivers a maximum 3,858 lb. (1,750 kg) of lift capacity at full forward reach of 9.6 ft. (2.95 m) ahead of the front wheels.

JCB's TM320 telescopic wheeled loader is designed specifically for the construction and industrial sectors. The JCB TM320 combines the central driving position and all-round visibility of a wheeled loading shovel with the reach and lift versatility of a telescopic handler — a combination that creates a formidable machine for re-handling and loading operations, according to the manufacturer.

The new machine features:

• JCB EcoMAX engine meets Stage IV/Tier IV Final emissions without a DPF

• 7,054 lb. (3,200 kg) lift capacity with a 17 ft. (5.2 m) lift height

• Four-speed Powershift transmission

• Articulated steer wheeled loader chassis

• Durable bronze graphite bushes extend chassis pivot and boom greasing intervals

Lifting Performance

The TM320 — which sits alongside the existing TM320 Wastemaster — has a maximum 7,054 lb. lift capacity, which is available to a full lift height of 17 ft. as well as from ground level. It delivers a maximum 3,858 lb. (1,750 kg) of lift capacity at full forward reach of 9.6 ft. (2.95 m) ahead of the front wheels. This combination of lift and reach performance makes the TM320 highly versatile, ideal for general lift and place applications on a construction site, or for re-handling in a concrete batching plant or smaller quarry operation, according to the manufacturer.

The TM320 is powered by a 4.4-L version of the JCB EcoMAX engine, developing 125 hp (93 kW). The EcoMAX engine meets EU Stage IV / US Tier IV Final emissions compliance using JCB's selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. There is no requirement for a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF) to compromise the engine installation and potentially add to machine servicing costs.

JCB Chief Innovation and Growth Officer Tim Burnhope said, “This is a proven solution that we introduced on our Loadall telescopic handlers for Europe earlier this year. It's a very compact installation that makes efficient use of AdBlue, without detracting from the engine's excellent power, torque and fuel consumption characteristics.”

The engine, through a four-speed JCB Powershift transmission, offers a maximum speed of 24.8 mph (40 kmh). A load-sensing hydraulic system, with an output of 37 gal. (140 L) per minute, ensures maximum performance and efficiency. The Powershift transmission can be operated in automatic mode or manually, using a traditional left hand lever, by operating the shift and forward-reverse selector switches mounted on the Servo joystick.

A hydraulic reversible cooling fan option is available that provides a choice of reversing intervals to suit different situations, as well as manual activation to purge the cooling pack of dust and debris when necessary. The TM320 also gets cylinder end damping as standard, to refine the operating experience when the telescopic section of the boom is fully extended and when the boom is retracted and lowered. JCB's auto smooth ride system boom suspension is available as an option.

A full color instrument display is one of several new features in the spacious operator's cab, providing information and warnings in a clearer at-a-glance format. Daily checks for engine oil, coolant and washer fluid levels can be completed from the driver's seat during engine start-up, saving time and ensuring that essential checks are carried out as a matter of routine. The machine also is equipped with hard wearing bronze graphite bushes, extending the chassis pivot and boom greasing interval to 500 hours.

A rear-view camera with color display can be supplied, and an immobilizer key option complements the theft deterrence provided by JCB LiveLink.
