Agricultural and groundworks specialist, John Dan O’Hare has bought the highest specification JCB site dumper ever ordered in Northern Ireland - the brand-new Stage V 9T-2, which was configured to maximise safety and comfort for its operators.
Supplied by Dennison JCB, the new machine boasts a SiTESAFE cab with air chiller, Powershuttle 4 speed transmission, roadlight kit, front screen guard, skip guard, flexible lower Hi Viz step, 360 vision camera kit, SiTESAFE radar, white noise reverse alarm, skip raise warning and LED worklights.
That's a decent spec, by any definition, as John Dan O’Hare Director Brian O’Hare explains: “We were looking for a new site dumper and the JCB Stage V 9T-2 is a very good machine. The cab is a must for operator safety, with some sites demanding it now. With the weather in Ireland, it’s also essential for operator comfort!
“The 9-tonne model holds plenty of material and is easy to use. We added the high specification so it does everything we need it to do and it looks the part too. Dennison JCB are always a pleasure to deal with – they never let us down.”
As the largest site dumper in the JCB range, the JCB 9T-2 offers class-leading skip strength courtesy of thick steel side walls and heavy-duty steel front and base plates. Meanwhile, the SiTESAFE cab is fitted with a 'Hammerglass' front screen and has been designed to withstand a front dump impact and side slewing impact from a 13-tonne excavator and side slewing impact from a 20-tonne excavator.
The new dumper joins five tracked excavators, two 3CX backhoe loaders, four wheeled loading shovels and a Loadall telescopic handler in John Dan O’Hare’s fleet of JCB machines.
