The Agricultural Machinery Dealer, Scot Agri, will be exhibiting several JCB machines at the Royal Highland Show, which runs from Thursday June 23 to Sunday June 26, in Ingliston, Scotland.
An all-electric Loadall 525-60E will be one of the stars of the show; built by a team of 36 JCB apprentices who have signed the engine cover, the machine features a vinyl wrap decorated in the handprints of 20 pupils from the schools that surround the JCB World Headquarters in Staffordshire – to represent JCB’s Platinum Jubilee NSPCC charity appeal. Plus, to raise funds for the appeal, JCB will also be auctioning off the vehicle alongside an apprentice-built portable power pack.
At the Royal Highland Show, Scot Agri will also have with them one of the newly-launched JCB Fastrac 4220 iCON machines, with its all-new operator control environment, based on a full-feature armrest console complete with 12in colour touch screen display.
Optional additions to the Fastrac iCON include implement set-up and monitoring, when ISOBUS is installed, and JCB’s own GPS guidance and precision farming applications. While a new powertrain control strategy, for fully automatic engine and transmission management, for target ground speeds under changing loads, is included as standard on the iCON series 4000 and 8000 models.
Also at the show will be JCB’s smallest 50hp wheeled loader, with hydrostatic drive and a configuration width of 1.0m, the 403. In contrast, Scot Agri will also have the new flagship purpose-built agricultural loader, the 457S, which has a 282hp engine and a new six-speed manual/auto power shift transmission and selectable torque converter lock-up.
In addition, show visitors will be able to view the TM420S, which is JCB’s flagship telescopic wheeled loader, with a twin pump installation and a 4.8-litre, 173hp Dieselmax engine. Also there with Scot Agri will be the unique Teletruk telescopic forklift; a restored 3C backhoe-loader; and a 538-60, representing JCB’s extensive range of Loadall telescopic handlers.
