Coleman & Co puts remote controlled JCB to work

Digger Blogger | 12:10, Tue February 03 2015 | 0 Comments

Birmingham-based Coleman & Company has bought a specially-made remote controlled excavator, developed by JCB.

It’s a 21-tonne machine that combines a JCB JS190 upper structure with a JS220LC undercarriage and rubber track pads.

The result, says JCB, is a machine powerful enough to deploy a four-tonne multi-processor attachment without exceeding a gross weight of 25 tonnes.

The new excavator is working 20 hours a day on the redevelopment of Birmingham New Street railway station and is likely to be there for the next nine months.
