JCB targets builders merchants with new Teletruks

 JCB Industrial has designed a range of four Teletruk materials handlers specifically for use in the builders merchants sector.

The trucks include the two-wheel drive 30DTCR, the 30D4x4, the two-wheel drive 35DTCR and the 35D4x4. The machines have a fully enclosed hydrostatic drive system and the choice of two-and four-wheel drive.

Maximum lift capacity is 3.0 tonnes for the 30D models and 3.5 tonnes for the 35D machines, while maximum lift height for the 30D is 4.0m and the Teletruks have a forward reach of up to 3.32m. The 35D Teletruks can lift to a height of 4.4m.

The Merchant Master specification includes as standard a single carriage pin, a flashing beacon, a greasing kit and a reversing alarm. The two two-wheel drive machines also come with a hydraulic flow divider as standard. As well as pallet forks, the Teletruks can be operated with bagging buckets, shovels, brick clamps and a host of specially designed attachments, delivering maximum versatility and return on investment for the merchant.

Options include PPS industrial tyres for the two-wheel drive models and foam-filled traction pattern tyres for the 4x4s, a choice of partial or full cabs, a five-spool hydraulic valve block, 1,200mm 3B forks, a vinyl seat covering, cab heater, vinyl door, panoramic mirrors, a quick disconnect side shift or complete Changezee system, two quick disconnect couplings, additional working lights and a road lighting kit.

The JCB Changezee hydraulic quick-disconnect carriage allows the operator to swap between attachments in 30 seconds, without having to leave the safety of the cab.
