High speed road travel brings welcome benefits but also responsibilities. That’s why every JCB Fastrac has a unique combination of safety features. Large external disc brakes on all four wheels provide maximum stopping power. The Fastrac can be driven at up to 43mph (70kph) on the road and bring itself and its load to a stop much quicker than conventional tractors.
Semi-truck standard air braking and anti-lock system (ABS) for skid-free controllable tractor and trailer braking in all conditions come as standard on the 8000 series. And that’s not all; a fail-safe set-up ensures the brakes still work safely even in the event of a system failure. Finally, the new hydrostatic dual steering system significantly reduces operator effort while meeting the exceptional safety standards for high speed tractors. Dual circuits ensure the steering continues to works even if a hose fails or the engine stops.
