On 19 October, RMA Lao proudly presents the official launch event to showcase of the robust JCB JS220 Dieselmax engine at Don Chun Palace to a group of VIP guests and business associates c, Phoukong Road & Bridge Construction Co., Ltd., Duang Pasheuth Road & Bridge Construction Co., Ltd., Borapha Agro Forestry Co., Ltd., Phu Bia Mining Ltd., and DSK Group.

“RMA and JCB have been working together very successfully since 1995 and are constantly working together to be there, supporting the development of Laos, and all of you who are building this great country, on road, building and project at a time,” said Chris Manley, Group Country Manager, RMA Lao.

The development of the new JS220 has geared up the equipment to a whole new level of efficiency. The JCB JS220 sits in the middle of JCB range of heavy tracked excavators. Weighing in at around 22 tones, it’s engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort, safety, and ease of maintenance.

Manley added, “Not only we are supporting the building of the country, but we are also supporting the growth of the people within it. We have recently sponsored the donation of a new JS220 Dieselmax engine to the German technical school which will help to train technicians from the start of their carrier.”

The JS220 is one of JCB excavator models to be fitted with the 4.8 litre displacement variant of the 4-cylinder JCB Dieselmax engine. It features an electronic fuel pump and high pressure common rail fuel injection to achieve optimum combustion, for maximum performance and efficiency.

The JCB Dieselmax engine has a proven track record having been fitted to JCB mid-range construction equipment for over 6 years. The 448 engine fitted to the JS200 and JS220 achieves an equal power rating to the Tier 3 Isuzu 4HK engine, but with higher maximum torque (+2.6%), and lower fuel consumption.
