Our rough terrain forklift hydraulic cylinders have friction-welded eye-ends for extra strength, plus all pivots use hardened pins. Masts are made from heavy-duty channel and I-section steel, alongside heavy-duty chains and guide roller bearings that are sealed for life. The one-piece fully welded chassis on a JCB forklift maximises strength and minimises weight, while axles are the same heavy-duty units we fit to our backhoe loaders and Loadalls. Like every JCB machine, our rough terrain forklifts are put through a stringent testing programme which includes prolonged high stress loading of the chassis, mast and other key components, as well as repeated transmission use over thousands of cycles. We use state-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques to achieve the very highest levels of quality. Hydraulic rams, cabs, axles, transmissions and engines are all JCB-built, so you can expect optimum reliability and performance. By electrophoretically dipping the cab before applying paint, we give these forklifts highly effective long-term corrosion protection. JCB engines are tried and trusted. We've built 200,000 DIESELMAX engines since 2004, and we've tested our new EcoMAX design for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
