Huge amounts of expertise, innovation and state-of-the -art manufacturing processes have gone into the new JCB 6T-1 Hi-Viz site dumper. It’s been built ready to tackle anything the rental market can throw at it.

  • Robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques help to achieve the very highest levels of build quality.
  • Finite element analysis and rig testing ensure superior structural strength and durability.
  • Heavy duty damage-resistant articulated chassis and skips help to withstand everything.
  • Durable all-steel bodywork construction with robust dual-pin centre joint design.

A low cost of ownership, industry-leading design and superior visibility all combine to make the new JCB 6T-1 Hi-Viz site dumper extremely efficient for material movement and tipping on a huge variety of sites.

  • Industry-leading visibility enables the operator to get more work done, safely.
  • JCB EcoMAX 55kW engine requires no after-treatment to lower cost of ownership and increase productivity.
  • Wheel-to-ground contact has been maximised giving superb traction to aid off-road performance.
  • Easy and fast ground level servicing and cleaning make it the perfect rental machine.

The new 6T-1 Hi-Viz site dumper puts operator safety first. The standard JCB SiTESAFE™ ROPS/FOPS level II cab with integrated protection system has been designed and tested to withstand a front dump impact and side slewing impact from a 13T excavator.

  • JCB SiTESAFE™ cab offers the ultimate combination of safety and operator comfort.
  • Impact-protective front screen, toughened side and rear glass plus reinforced frame.
  • Drive inhibit system requires the operator to be seated with lap belt engaged before driving.
  • 84dB(A) in-cab noise levels negate the need for hearing protection.

A wider wheel track and longer wheelbase substantially improves stability. Combined with a unique skip design and lowered chassis, this results in a 16% lower payload centre of gravity compared to a conventional 6 tonne dumper, reducing the risk of machine overturn.

  • The innovative chassis design lowers the payload centre of gravity by 16%
  • Comparable width and turning circle ensure accurate load placement and manoeuvrability.
  • Widened wheel track and lengthened wheelbase improve stability in all directions.
  • Tapered skip geometry ensures smooth spoil ejection when tipping.

The JCB 6T-1 Hi-Viz site dumper has class-leading visibility, providing the operator with a direct line of vision to 1.4m height at a 1m distance from the machine when fully laden. This is a 77% improvement compared to a conventional 6 tonne dumper.

  • Direct line of vision exceeds ISO 5006 legislation.
  • 77% greater visibility than a conventional 6 tonne machine.
  • Class-leading visibility ensures safe machine manoeuvrability.
  • Prevents harming bystanders and machine damage.
