The key advantages of the new shovels are the 8-mm enlarged heavy-duty side plate designed to reinforce the loaded area and the 5-mm ultra high strength side panels. The bottom of the implements is made of 5-mm pressed sheet steel.

Since the edge of the shovels constantly contacts with the material and bears heavy loads, it is made of high-hardness steel protecting the bottom from wear and tear. The models of the new range can be fitted with a weld-on toeplate or a double-bevelled bolt-on toeplate to increase the service life.

The shovels are painted with the use of the electrostatic spraying system. Before that, the surface is prepared by abrasive blasting to ISO 8501-1 Sa 2.5 standard, thus ensuring extra durability of the coating. The improved mounting brackets of the implements greatly facilitate the process of moving materials.

‘The new shovels are already available for the clients of EkoNiva-Tekhnika’, says Mikhail Kiryakov, JCB Brand Manager of EkoNiva-Chernozemye. ‘Using these attachments, farmers can work more efficiently and save their money as the long operating life of the shovels will reduce machinery downtime. JCB is always tuned in to its partners’ needs, and the market launch of the updated range has proved it once again. Now, every agricultural producer will be able to find attachments tailored specially for their enterprises.’
