25 JCB dumpers for Murphy Plant

Murphy Plant, part of J. Murphy & Sons Ltd, has taken delivery of 15 JCB 6T-1 cabbed swivel-tip dumpers and 10 9T-1 cabbed front-tip models. These new additions take the plant operator’s fleet beyond 100 JCB machines, joining existing equipment such as JCB Fastrac, backhoe loader, Loadall telescopic handler, wheeled excavator and rough terrain forklift models.

The new JCB site dumpers are part of Murphy Plant’s ongoing fleet renewal programme. The machines will be used on a wide variety of projects in the power, natural resources, water, transport and construction sectors, for clients such as National Grid, Network Rail, Cadent, Thames Water, United Utilities and Severn Trent Water. Mike Carpenter, Managing Director at Murphy Plant said, “The Murphy Plant maintenance team uses the JCB LiveLink telematics system to proactively maintain its equipment and enhance productivity on projects. The LiveLink system has also been useful in circumstances that have required security team involvement.”

The cabbed dumpers are powered by JCB’s 74hp Ecomax diesel engine, which meets EU Stage IIIB/US Tier 4 Final emissions standards without a diesel particulate filter or exhaust after treatment. They also boast the JCB SiTESAFE cab, a ROPS/FOPS Level II design with a reinforced frame and an impact protective front screen. Each machine is equipped with a front camera to increase visibility, along with a sequenced drive-inhibit system to ensure that operators are correctly seated and secure before driving. Each also benefits from a manufacturer-backed two-year warranty and all-steel construction.
