JCB has added a 10,000 lb. (4,536 kg) lift capacity machine to its range of rough terrain fork-lifts. The JCB 950 is ideal for use in construction and home building, agriculture applications and waste and recycling, as well as the rental industry where its high mobility and rugged frame make it a highly productive equipment solution, according to the manufacturer.
With a spacious cab for improved operator comfort, the JCB 950 tips the scales at 18,650 lbs. (8,459 kg) and builds on the features of the 930 and 940 models. Powered by JCB’s Dieselmax engine, the JCB 950 offers 84 hp (63 kW) of power and 258 lb. ft. (350 Nm) of torque. The forklift drives through JCB’s synchro shuttle transmission, which combines a four-speed synchromesh gearbox with integral torque converter, with an electrically operated reversing shuttle for smooth gear changes on the move.
All three models in the JCB RTFL range can be specified with two- or four-wheel drive, with JCB Max-Trac axles providing performance in all ground conditions. Maximum travel speed is 18 mph (29 kmh).
The 22 ft. (6.7 m) mast offers 10 degrees of mast tilt (forward), with a sideshift function making the placing of materials on scaffolding much easier to complete.
The machine can be ordered with FOPS standard cab or canopy. The cab offers two-door access, safety glass all round and front and rear windshield wipers. A roof wash/wipe function is available as an option. Excellent all round visibility and an outside turning radius of just 14 ft. 5 in. (4.4 m) for the two-wheel drive model and 16 ft. 1 in. (4.8 m) for the all-wheel drive machine, make the 950 maneuverable on site.
