JCB, Johnston Sweepers ink engine deal

Marcia Doyle Headshot

JCB has won what it terms a “landmark deal” to supply Johnston Sweepers with its new EcoMax engines. The $4.8 million-per-year deal is the first since JCB Power Systems went into full production of the 4.4 liter EcoMax, which can be “de-tiered,” making them useable in non-regulated countries where ultra-low sulfur diesel is not yet available. The engines will go into Johnston’s V Range of truck-mounted sweepers.

Johnston Sweepers equipment goes into the public sector, construction, rental and airport markets; the company has 200 global dealers.
