New JCB midi


JCB is launching its biggest midi excavator at Intermat in May. The 8080 (above), is aimed at the 7-8 tonne sector. The machine, aimed at the hire sector, has a kingpost design, allowing access to more confined areas and greater reach than A-frame alternatives as the boom moves independently from the cab.
