Defence Products

JCB's involvement with military products dates right back to 1984 when we supplied nearly 1,000 410M rough terrain forklifts to the UK MoD. Since then JCB has supplied over 50 different armed forces with more than 3,500 JCB machines.

For military applications, JCB can offer machines from our commercial range (modified and unmodified) and specialised military machines that offer high levels of mobility and protection.

As the world's number one choice in both backhoe and telescopic handlers as well as a commercial range of over 300 machines, JCB offers a proven solution for excavating, earthmoving and materials handling equipment. Our specialised military vehicles have been used in the toughest environments on operations around the world, where the levels of mobility and protection have been tested and proven by several armed forces.
