JCB India has added JCB116 (11T Class Soil Compactor) to its existing range of road compaction equipment. Previously the company had two world-class products - the VMT330 (3T Class Mini Tandem Roller) and the VMT 860eco (9T Class Tandem Roller).
JCB116 Soil Compactor model has state-of-the-art JCB Diesel Max engine, providing fuel savings of up to 5-10%. It has been equipped with latest German Vibration Technology and is designed to give more compaction per litre. It ensures the desired compaction density in minimum number of passes.
Another first from JCB India is that it has become the first manufacturer in the industry to offer an in-built Compaction Meter in its Compactors. The Compaction Meter, designed and developed in India, ensures uniform compaction. The operator knows exactly where to stop and the number of passes that are required to achieve the desired density. This helps in uniform compaction density as well as savings in fuel. It helps in reducing the number of passes.
The new model, JCB116 Soil Compactor, provides the best-in-class operator environment with ergonomically designed steering wheel. The cab platform is mounted on 4 viscous mounts, to isolate it from any vibrations and to make the operator feel comfortable even during high amplitude passes. All JCB compactors offer lifetime lubricated center joints and grease-free bearings, saving the cost of lubrication.
