JCB Wastemaster wins safety award

Published:  01 April, 2016

JCB's new 35D 4x4 Wastemasterplus Teletruk has won the safety category of theFork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) Awards for Excellence 2016.

The FLTA said: 'Safety remains at the top of the Fork Lift Truck Association's agenda and JCB is an excellent example of the strides made by manufacturers to make their products safer and help reduce accidents and resulting injuries.'

JCB Industrial general manager Nicola Bagworth, said: 'We are delighted to have won this award and would like to thank everyone who voted for the Teletruk. We work closely with our customers to ensure we meet their needs, and the safety of machine operators and any nearby pedestrians is a key concern. This award is a great achievement, but our work goes on. We will continue to innovate and develop machines that drive the industry forward in a safe and cost effective way.'

The JCB Teletruk's telescopic boom offers a number of benefits over conventional forklifts. Even in confined spaces a Teletruk can reach forwards to lift and place loads quickly and safely.

As well as the machine's safety features, its forward reach means curtain-sided vehicles only need to be opened from one side so that forklift operations and pedestrians can be kept apart. The time and space saving ability of the JCB Teletruk make it an useful materials handler for the waste and recycling industry.
