JCB to unveil its biggest excavator

JCB has announced it will unveil its biggest excavator yet at the Conexpo show in March.

The JS520, which weighs 52 tonnes, will enable the manufacturer to target quarry applications and large infrastructure jobs.

Chief operating officer Matthew Taylor said that the machine would be shown in a concept version at the show.

The firm sold over 70,000 machines worldwide last year, a 30 per cent rise, which Mr Taylor said outpaced the market's growth by 18 per cent.
