Today the whole world is functioning through machinery. All the activities of a person are being done through the work of machinery. Whether the work is small or big, the use of machinery had made the work of the people very easy. One such machinery is excavator. All the construction work, demolition work and various other industrial works are done through the use of excavators. With this view the excavator market in India is mushrooming very drastically. India is a country where industrial growth is very fast. In almost all the cities the excavators market in India is located. So the use and demand of excavator is also very high. The excavator market in India sells the excavators of high quality. Excavator is machinery that contains a boom, a bucket and a cab. But these parts of excavators have now been replaced by new standard parts. The excavators market in India now deals with the equipments that are of more standard quality. In the very recent years the expansion of hydraulic capabilities have increased so drastically that the entire task done now is far beyond excavation tasks with the use of buckets. The high standard equipments like the use of grapple are being sold in the excavator market in India. The use of excavator is being done other than excavation also. The excavators market in India is expanding very vastly. The excavators are being used together with loaders and bulldozers. The excavators enable one to do their job in a very less time. The job of number of machines can be done through the use of excavator only. These machines are being used in the big industries. Smaller excavators are also been available in the excavator market in India. These machines are called mini excavator. Excavators are also used for heavy lifts. For lifting the heavy things these excavators are being used. The excavator functions works through the use of hydraulic fluid.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Excavators are heavy equipment used in civil works and surface mining. An excavator, also called a 360-degree excavator or digger, sometimes abbreviated simply to a 360, is an engineering vehicle consisting of a backhoe and cab mounted on a pivot (turntable is a more apt description) atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. The term excavator is sometimes used as a general term for any piece of digging equipment.
Excavators are fun to watch. Look around and you’ll probably notice that most excavators are on tracks. Wheeled excavators are popular heavy equipment used for mining large volumes of soil, coal or ore and civil works. All excavators are designed to move large amounts of soil and earth in a minimal amount of time. Large excavators are useful for digging foundations and other huge projects, but many times you need a smaller excavator to handle more delicate jobs. These smaller excavators are also called compact excavators or min excavators. Mini excavators bring many advantages to a wide range of construction jobsites. Mini excavators are most often found at work at construction sites in densely populated urban areas. However, mini excavators can just as easily be spotted in modern suburbia on a new home construction or remodel site. Another place to spot these versatile pieces of equipment is on the farm.
Excavators often have attachments, or you can purchase additional attachments to fit the machinery. Few of the attachments include jackhammers (breakers), shovels, grapples, augers, etc.. Grapples are similar to claws and are used to grasp objects (trees, stumps, etc..). Hydraulic Mining Excavators often uses shovels. Finally, augers are similar to a drill bit, and are used to move materials.
The role of excavators is to dig holes, trenches, and foundations. Excavators use large machinery with hinge metal buckets, which are often attached to hydraulic arms, while using the equipment to move heavy or bulky quantities of soil or earth. In addition, excavators are used in demolition, general landscaping, grading, heavy lifting, laying pipes, river dredging,
mining, open-pit mining, brush cutting, etc. Brush cutting is possible when operators use hydraulic attachments.
Roles of Excavators Excavators are used in many roles: 1- Digging of trenches, holes, foundations 2- Demolition 3- General grading/landscaping 4- Heavy lift, e.g. lifting and placing of pipes 5- River dredging 6- Mining, especially, but not only open-pit mining 7- Brush cutting with hydraulic attachments
Varieties of Excavators Excavators come in a wide variety of sizes. The smaller ones are called a mini-excavator or compact excavator. One manufacturer's largest model weighs 84,980 kg (187,360 lb) and has a maximum bucket size of 4.5 m³ (5.9 yd³). The same manufacturer's smallest mini-excavator weighs 1470 kg (3240 lb), has a maximum bucket size of 0.036 m³ (0.048 yd³) and the width of its tracks can be adjusted to 89 cm (35 inches). Another company makes a mini excavator that will fit through a doorway with tracks that can be adjusted to only 70 cm (28 inches) wide. Often the bucket can be replaced with other tools like a breaker, a grapple or an auger. Excavators are usually employed together with loaders and bulldozers. Most smaller
excavators have a small backfill (or dozer-) blade. It's a horizontal bulldozer like blade attached to the undercarriage and is used for pushing removed material back into a hole.
Types of Excavators 1- Compact excavator (Mini Excavator) 2- Dragline excavator 3- Bucket-wheel excavator 4- Long-reach excavator 5- long front excavator 6- Hydraulic excavator (Hydro excavator)

THE STORY BEHIND JCB- HISTORY
JCB started as one man’s dream. It is the classic entrepreneurial story. Joseph Cyril Bamford was one of Britain’s finest innovators. He sadly passed away in 2001 at the age of 84. Joe started the business in 1945 manufacturing a tipping trailer with a £1 welding set in a lock-up garage he rented in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. He sold it at the local market for £45 and went back immediately to make another one. On the very first day Joe started his business his son Anthony was born. He had his hands full!
By 1948, Joe was employing six people. It was then that he turned his attention to making a hydraulic machine - Europe's first hydraulic tipping trailer. This developed into a hydraulic arm for tractors- called a Si-draulic, one of JCB’s earliest commercial hits. The first product to carry the JCB logo as we know it was in 1953. This was a backhoe loader which people nowadays call a 'JCB'. In the 1960s JCB introduced the famous 3C machine. This was a massive seller in its day, selling over 3.000 in 1964. Joe was a brilliant marketer and was to become famous for a marketing first. The new 3C machine provided the operator of the machine with the facilities for boiling a kettle in the cab. Joe visited every purchaser of a new 3C himself and presented them personally with their JCB kettle. Joe’s customer visits became legendary and the 3C was an overnight success. Joe’s publicity skills were also evident when he began the tradition of JCB 'stunts' in the 1960s. Elaborate manoeuvres performed for the TV cameras - such as driving a car under a machine raised up on its hydraulic arms - showed the versatility and power of the machines and began the tradition of the 'Dancing Diggers' shows which are now famous throughout the world.
Today, diggers can not only rise up on their buckets but also roll on their sides, something that is most definitely not advisable on the normal 'building site. The company also has a JCB GT - a digger fitted with a V8 Chevrolet engine, capable of doing an incredible 100mph. Joe was quick to realise that to be a good exporter, the potential customer had to get a feel for
why JCB was special He realised that the only way to do this was to show them the care and detail that went into making the machine but he had one problem JCB was right in the heart of the Midlands, making a visit for foreign customers unattractive because of the long journey. Joe solved it by buying JCB its own aircraft and helicopter which were branded with the JCB logo. To this day, visiting customers are still flown to Rocester by jet and helicopter.
Under the leadership of Anthony Bamford the company began expanding its product range, such as the hugely successful Load all telescopic handler. Later, JCB expanded into wheeled and tracked excavators. By 1994, JCB's product diversification had paid, off, with £140 million of its £565 million sales coming from products launched in the previous five years.
JOURNEY OF JCB
EJCB Limited was a joint venture between JC Bamford Excavator limited and Escorts Group. JC Bamford Excavators Limited of United Kingdom is ranked in the top 5 manufacturers of earth moving and construction equipment in the world. The company sells Its products in over 130 countries and is the World's No.1 in the Backhoe Loader or the Excavator -Loaders market Stated below is synopsis of JCB’s history:
1916 June 21: Joseph Cyril Bamford was born. 1945: He rented a lock-up garage 12 feet by 15 feet in Uttoxeter. In it, using a welding set which he bought second-hand for £1 from English Electric, he made a tipping trailer from war-surplus materials. The production site was in Eckersley's coal yard, Uttoxeter. Its sides and floor were made from steel sheet that had been part of air-raid shelters . 1948: There were 6 people working for the company. It made the first hydraulic tipping trailer in Europe. 1950: He moved to an old cheese factory in Rocester; his workforce still totaled six. 1951: He began painting his machinery yellow. 1953: The well-known JCB logo appeared. The logo was designed by Derby media and advertising designer, Leslie Smith. 1958: He bought ten scooters with the number plates JCB1 to JCB10. (He later transferred the registration code JCB1 to a Bentley Continental.) 1979: JCB starts its operation in India. 1991: JCB enter a joint venture with Sumitomo of Japan to produce excavators. 1998: Joint venture with Sumitomo ends 2000: A JCB factory was completed in Pooler near Savannah, Georgia in USA. 2001: JCB opened a factory in Brazil.
2001: Joseph Cyril Bamford died aged 84. In his later life he was a tax exile. 2004: Production started of the JCB444 diesel engine. The first engine designed and manufactured by JCB. 2005: JCB bought Vibromax (a German compaction equipment company). That was the first time since 1968 that JCB bought a company. 2009: JCB to make India its largest manufacturing hub. UK-based JCB, which operates in India through its wholly-owned subsidiary, JCB India Ltd has invested Rs 3 billion in 2008-9 to expand its factory at Ballabgarh in Haryana, India into world’s largest backhoe loader manufacturing facility.
PRODUCTS AND APPLICATIONS
JCB offer a diverse range of unmatched backhoe loaders. Wheeled Loaders, Excavators, Skid Steer Loaders and Telehandlers, Compactors and Pick and Carry Crane.
BACKHOES The choice of superlative Backhoe Loaders includes 3DX (76 HP). 3DX Super (96 HP) and 4DX (96 HP) depending on the customers’ requirements and applications.
Application: - A backhoe loader is a piece of heavy construction equipment which actually marries two separate devices: a backhoe and a loader. Contracting companies use backhoe loaders because they are powerful, efficient, fairly compact, and easier to maintain than two separate devices. They are frequently used for roadwork and major construction projects. There are several players like Case, Volvo, Caterpillar, and John Deere, but the leader is JCB. The core of a backhoe loader is a tractor base. The tractor has wide, rugged wheels and a strong engine, allowing it to muscle its way over a variety of terrain. The tractor also has a cab or covered area for the operator, allowing him or her to work through inclement weather. Inside the cab, two separate sets of controls are used to manipulate the elements of the backhoe loader. The backhoe portion of the equipment is actually located on the rear end. A backhoe is a type of excavator at the end of a long arm. When the operator manipulates the controls, the backhoe can be used to dig high volumes of material very quickly. Other tools can be attached to this flexible arm, such as tools used to break up concrete. While the backhoe is in use, the backhoe loader is parked and anchored with stabilizer legs, which pull the wheels off the ground and stop the backhoe loader from moving. The loader section of the equipment is a giant scoop. It can be filled with material for transport elsewhere, or it can be used to smooth and plow roadways. Since transport of
materials is often required after their excavation, the backhoe loader conveniently bundles both tasks into one machine. Specialized training is required before someone can run a backhoe loader safely, and a supervisor on site usually ensures that the equipment is being used safely and appropriately.
The options in the exceptional two wheeled loaders are 430Z (127 HP. 1.7 cu.m), 432ZX (150 HP, 2.3 cu.m) and 456ZX (216 HP, 3.3 cu.m). Excavators
Their best and India's finest Excavator range includes JS 80 (8 ton), JS 140 (14 ton), JS 200 (20 ton). JS 210 LC (21 ton) and JS 330 (33 ton) and recently launched JS200HD (Quarry Machine) suited to diverse weight requirements Skid Steers
They also have 3 different Robotic Skid Steer Loaders, viz. 160/170/190 all of which come with a wide range of attachments to suit specific customer needs.
Application:- A loader (also known as: bucket loader, front loader, front end loader, pay loader, scoop loader, shovel, skip loader, and/or wheel loader) is a type of tractor, usually wheeled, sometimes on tracks, that has a front mounted square wide bucket connected to the end of two booms (arms) to scoop up loose material from the ground, such as dirt, sand or gravel, and move it from one place to another without pushing the material across the ground. A loader is commonly used to move a stockpiled material from ground level and deposit it into an awaiting dump truck or into an open trench excavation. Loaders are used mainly for uploading materials into trucks, laying pipe, clearing rubble, and digging.
EXCAVATOR Excavators are heavy equipment consisting of a boom, bucket and cab on a rotating platform (known as the "house"). The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. All movement and functions of the excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, be it with rams or motors. Their design is a natural progression from the steam shovel. Excavators are used in many ways:
Digging of trenches, holes, foundations Material handling Brush cutting with hydraulic attachments Forestry work Demolition General grading/landscaping Heavy lift, e.g. lifting and placing of pipes Mining, especially, but not only open-pit mining River dredging Driving piles, in conjunction with a Pile Driver
SKID LOADER A skid loader or skid steer loader is a small rigid frame, engine-powered machine with lift arms used to attach a wide variety of labor-saving tools or attachments. Though sometimes they are equipped with tracks, skid-steer loaders are typically four-wheel drive vehicles with the left-side drive wheels independent of the right-side drive wheels. By having each side independent of the other, wheel speed and direction of rotation of the wheels determine the direction the loader will turn. Skid steer loaders are capable of zero-radius, "pirouette" turning, which makes them extremely manoeuvrable and valuable for applications that require a compact, agile loader.
Unlike in a conventional front loader, the lift arms in these machines are alongside the driver with the pivot points behind the driver's shoulders. Because of the operator's proximity to moving booms, early skid loaders were not as safe as conventional front loaders, particularly during entry and exit of the operator. Modern skid loaders have fully-enclosed cabs and other features to protect the operator. Like other front loaders, it can push material from one location to another, carry material in its bucket or load material into a truck or trailer. A Skid Steer loader can sometimes be used in place of a large excavator by digging a hole from the inside.
TELEHANDLERS JCB has two models in telehandlers namely 506C and 528S which are widely used in construction of multi-storyed buildings, material handling at ports, industrial purpose, etc. A telescopic handler, or telehandler, is a machine widely used in agriculture and industry. It is similar in appearance and function to a forklift but is more a crane than forklift, with the increased versatility of a single telescopic boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or lift table.
The most common attachment for a tele-handler is pallet forks and the most common application is to move loads to and from places unreachable for a conventional forklift. For example, telehandlers have the ability to remove palletized cargo from within a trailer and to place loads on rooftops and other high places. The latter application would otherwise require a crane, which is not always practical or timeefficient.
The advantage of the telehandlers is also its biggest limitation: as the boom extends or raises while bearing a load, it acts as a lever and causes the vehicle to become increasingly unstable, despite counterweights in the rear. This means that the lifting capacity quickly decreases as the working radius (distance between the front of the wheels and the centre of the load) increases. A vehicle with a 5,000lb capacity with
the boom retracted may be able to safely lift as little as 400lb with it fully extended at a low boom angle. The same machine with a 5,000lb lift capacity with the boom retracted may be able to support as much as 10,000lb with the boom raised to 70°. The operator is equipped with a load chart which helps him determine whether a given task is possible, taking into account weight, boom angle and height. Failing this, most telehandlers utilize a computer which uses sensors to monitor the vehicle, and will warn the operator and/or cut off further control input if the limits of the vehicle are exceeded. Some machines are also equipped with front outriggers and can be called mobile cranes, which extend the lifting capability of the equipment while stationary.
LIFTALL Liftall has a robust structure, excellent maneuverability and outstanding engine performance. The machine also promises comfortable and safe operator environment. The maximum height of the JCB LIFTALL crane is 12500mm (under hook) and maximum horizontal reach is 10200mm which is more height of lift than main competitor.
VIBRATORY SINGLE DRUM COMPACTORS The VMT Series comprises a range of models designed to offer high productivity and reliability with maximum operating economy. The ideal combination of static weight, centrifugal force and amplitudes makes these machines perfect for handling a wide range of applications, from the rolling of sub-base materials to finish rolling asphalt. All models boast excellent maneuverability, compact design and many extra-value features, as well as being available as combination versions with rubber tyres replacing the rear drum.
