JCB-5 crawler excavator

Post #1 by victor13 » Fri Sep 15, 2017 6:44 pm

The article mentions the crawler excavator JCB-5. What is this model? - JCB-5 ? Crane installation is similar to JCB-7, but less and the other cab ! Could there be a smaller version of JCB-5?

Maybe there is a mistake in the book?

Hi Victor I would imagine the model referred to was the JCB 5C as that is the only JCB 5 model excavator that I am aware of unless there was a prototype for another machine?

Good business decision by JCB when you think how many crane makes have disappeared. Presumably such a machine would have also dragged them into another relationship with an outside manufacturer.

I may be wrong on this but I think the chassis was based on a Foden? :think:
