We’re delighted to launch a new safety solution – the GKD Series 2 – that has been engineered specifically for the JCB Hydradig!
About the Hydradig
The JCB Hydradig is an innovative machine that incorporates the latest technology in electro-hydraulic controls, giving it optimum performance. The capabilities of the machine are particularly suited for congested urban environments and on busy road networks.
The design of the Hydradig means that all four wheels are easily visible from the drivers seat, and a lower centre of gravity is created by having the engine and tanks mounted to the chassis.
It also has multiple steering modes available, such as 2 wheel, 4 wheel and crab, plus a turning radius of under 4m, enabling work in a single carriageway.
Our safety solution
The engineers at GKD have been working for two years to develop and test an RCI system that provides true safety features whilst optimising the Hydradig’s performance. We are proud to have developed one of the first RCIs to work with electro-hydraulics, an experience that has facilitated the development of a system that truly integrates with the JCB Hydradig.
The new Series 2 safety system offers a range of safety benefits to the Hydradig, including:
- Unique flexibility of parallel or multipoint virtual walls
- Dig mode and dig depth indication
- Up to 36 predefined lifting zones that maximise the productivity of the machine
- Full colour, graphical touch screen display with no lag
