Expanded JCB Multi Shovel attachment range
JCB says the expanded range of tougher and bigger capacity Multi Shovel attachments for its Loadall telehandlers gives farmers and contractors a larger choice of sizes and configurations. The attachment combines a bucket for handling loose materials such as grain and beet pulp with a hydraulically-operated grab for loose muck and silage that also enables the implement to handle round and square bales.
When removable end plate sections are removed, the Multi Shovel can also shift tree trunks and branches for woodland and estate maintenance work. In addition to the existing fabricated tine grab, the new range also offers a grab with forged tines that are bolted in place and can be replaced when worn or damaged. With either tine option, the company says the grab shape and 'bite point' have been optimised to increase load capacity.
A new weld-on toe plate option is an alternative to the bolt-on design, with both types benefitting from an extra support beam to help resist deflection against hard to penetrate materials such as compacted manure. Changing from a two-piece shell to an 8mm monobloc structure for the bucket has increased the overall strength of the attachment, says the company.
There are now 32 variants of the 1.45, 1.59 and 1.66m³ capacity Multi Shovel, which is available in widths of 2.15m, 2.35m and 2.45m, weights from 775kg to 872kg, and in sizes and fittings to suit all Loadall models.
