First for VISIBILITY
*Operator can see within 1m of the machine footprint at ground level and all 4 wheels of the machine can be seen from the operator seat.
*With the engine and other components now housed in the chassis, the counterweight has been radically reduced, making the tailswing just 120mm.
*Operator can view stabilisers, dozer and trailer hitch from inside the cab, with no requirement to slew the machine.
*Low level glass provides unobstructed visibility
*Optional high powered LED work lights to boom, front, rear and side gives you daylight working conditions at night.
First for STABILITY
*Engine and double skinned tanks are mounted on all steel chassis which creates a lowered centre of gravity.
*Lower centre of gravity provides extra operator confidence and productivity when carrying materials.
*50/50 weight distribution between the axles.
First for MOBILITY
*A single speed, hydrostatic transmission allows you to road to site quickly eliminating need for plant transport.
*Optional proven JCB smooth ride system dampens the dig end over uneven ground.
*3 mobility modes: “Highway” “Site” & “Creep”
*Trailer hitch with a 3.5T towing capacity.
First for MANOEUVRABILITY
*3 steer modes as standard with 4 wheel steer, 2 wheel steer and crab steer.
*A Kingpost allows you to dig parallel to a wall increasing versatility.
*Reduced front swing and minimal tailswing.
*+/-8 degrees of axle oscillation ensures the Hydradig can maneuver on even the toughest terrain.
*Greater in cab visibility.
First for SERVICEABILITY
*Ground level access to all daily checks and fuel filler for quick safe servicing.
*500 hour greasing on all dig end, dozer and stabiliser grease points.
First for COMFORT
*Tactile rotary controller provides precise intuitive control.
*A heater as standard with optional climate control.
*Optional seatbelt warning beacon available to meet site requirements.
*Low noise levels, with noise and vibration moved away from operator.
After watching JCB’s amazing demonstration and unveiling of the HYDRADIGS at BAUMA in April 2016, Hugh Edeleanu Chairman of H.E. SERVICES (PLANT HIRE) Ltd instantly stepped forward requesting 50 of the groundbreaking machines, these machines will soon be available from all 10 of our nationwide depots.
