JCB called up to kit out army

JCB has won an order to supply 236 machines to the British Army.

The firm was awarded the contract by ALC, an Amey/Babcock JV that provides plant and mechanical handling equipment to the Ministry of Defence, and will supply 138 4CX backhoe loaders and 98 436eHT wheel loading shovels in January 2011.

The deal follows an ALC order in 2007 for 420 JCB Loadall telescopic handlers. The machines will have minor enhancements, including Nato livery, personal weapons stowage inside the cab, convoy lighting and increased wading ability.
