JCB India has unveiled its Made-in-India three world-class range of material handling machines, namely Telehandlers, Skid Steer Loaders and Super Loaders with the aim of revolutionising the Material Handling industry in India.
These machines are extensively used for material handling applications such as loading, unloading, placing and lifting material at various heights and reaches. Through the use of various attachments, this versatile machine offers the perfection of 4 machines in 1, claims the company.
JCB has been a pioneer in the concept of Telehandlers globally since 1977 and has remained the world’s first choice in this segment ever since, it said.

The industry is now progressing towards more safe and reliable practices and through these revolutionary products we foresee a great opportunity to replicate the global best practices in the material handling industry.”
In line of maintaining global standard on-site safety in India, JCB offers three variants of Telehandlers – a 7m lift height machine known as the 530-70, an 11m lift height machine known as 530-110, and a 17m lift height machine which is the 540-170.
JCB India claims, its Skid Steers Loaders (also known as a mini backhoe loader) are the world’s safest Skid Steers as they come with a unique side door entry. This compact and versatile machine is available in two variants in India – the 135 and the 155. Skid Steers are ideal to operate in urban infrastructure applications or for narrow and areas which space is a restriction.
This made in India product, the Super Loader (Backhoe loader) on the other hand is a perfect blend of value, versatility and performance. It is designed as a dedicated loader for loading applications at higher heights. At present, JCB offers two variants in the Indian market, a 3.1m dump height machine and a machine with a 4.0m dump height.
This range is accompanied with a wide option of attachments such as Power Grab, Drum Handler, Vibratory Roller, Industrial Grappler, General Purpose Shovel, Heavy Duty Fork, Crane Hook – Fork Mounted, Grain Bucket and Man Platform, said the company.
“Over the years, we have been witnessing a growing need for technologically advanced and intelligent product solutions in this industry. With the three product solutions, JCB is leading this paradigm shift in India. This world class range is a perfect combination of safety, productivity and versatility.” Mr. Sondhi further added.
JCB India is already a leader in Backhoe loader segment with market share of 75% in India and company may witness better sale in this year or year to come on the back of increasing construction activities.
As per the report of Off-Highway Research, Backhoe loader sales are expected to increase by 32% by 2020 on the back of government investment in infrastructure sector, where JCB India will try to increase its existing market share being a market leader.
Material handling machines may witness the sale due to increasing construction activities and mineral mining activities after approval of National Mineral Exploration Policy (NMEP) by cabinet and increasing coal mining in the country.
Rising number of warehousing with the emergence of e-commerce industry will also raise the demand of material handling machines.
