The S3246E has been designed to be safe, productive and easy to operate and service.
The platform capacity allows two people and tools to work safely and the roller supported deck extension can be operated with ease. Industry standard and easily interchangeable componentry means less downtime and reduced ownership costs.
JCB totally understand the rental market and realise the importance of maximising uptime over a lifetime with tough, long lasting components. Using our 70 years of engineering and manufacturing experience, we were able to take proven JCB features and bring them to the electric scissors range. Features such as the full pivot boss design on scissor pack, weld designs and motor protection plates. Also, unique to JCB are our battery and hydraulic door wearpads which support the doors weight when closed, preventing them dropping over time.
Again, using our experience, we recognise that an easy to service design saves time and money. With all the models within the JCB electric scissors range, you’ll find we’ve made accessing not just serviceable parts but all parts very easy. With ground level access to batteries and hydraulics plus high quality JCB parts like filters and valve blocks, servicing time and therefore costs are kept to an absolute minimum. Livelink Lite, our innovative telematics system lets you monitor your equipment remotely and alerts you to any unplanned movements or working outside operational hours.
JCB also recognise the need for easy to use equipment to maximise productivity. A unique gate handle instead of a push button, makes for easier and safer entry whilst a unique roller design for the extension deck makes it easier to extend or retract. There’s an ergonomic controller cradle for both left and right hand use and an automotive style foot pedal for deck extension. Everything is designed in a way that lets the operator get to site and complete the job in hand in the shortest possible time.
It goes without saying; safety is a priority for JCB. Bringing our expertise in off-highway safety systems to the Electric Scissor range, the machines are fitted with a whole host of systems including control interlocks, pot hole protection, speed limiting at height and a load sensing system. Multiple levels of redundancy are incorporated into the safety systems. In addition to this, steps have been taken to protect key safety componentry from accidental damage and tampering.
