JCB unveils Stage V engines and equipment

By Mike Hayes13 April 2021

In a live online event, JCB has launched a new range of Stage V-compliant diesel-powered compact construction equipment.

The new models will be variously powered by JCB’s own new DieselMax engines, and by engines produced for JCB by Kohler or manufactured by Perkins.

Unveiling the company’s new engines, telehandlers, excavators and generators, as well as upgraded teletruck and backhoe loader models, the company’s chief innovation & growth officer Tim Burnhope said, “Internal combustion engines will play a leading role in powering construction equipment for the foreseeable future.
