JCB launches new utility vehicle

Published:  06 January, 2012

The new the JCB WORKMAX 800 D – offers 600 kg (1323 lb) maximum payload.

Its launch extends the range which also includes the current WORKMAX 1000 D model 4x4, which is a heavy duty machine and the WORKMAX 6x4, which is suitable for fine turf applications such as sports fields and golf.

The choice of a 784cc Yanmar diesel engine coupled to a two-speed CVT with Kevlar belt is a deliberate move to position the 800 D model in the middle of the growing mid-range UTV volume sector.

The 4x4 drive plus selectable diff lock is electronic. The 800 D cab has a flat checkplate floor for uninterrupted access from either side, and bench or bucket seats. The steel-construction tipping cargo deck will take 400 kg.

Underneath there is a steel plate guard for major transmission components when engaged in unpredictable off-road environments such as forest tracks. Likewise, to protect the engine during wading the air intake is mounted as high as possible, waist-high inside the front stowage compartment.
