    JCB’s Agri Pro range features valve technology from Atlantic Fluid Tech

    Posted in: Press Releases

    January’s edition of Farm Machinery Journal, features a rigorous field test of the JCB AgriPro range.  It resulted in the headline quote of  “The performance makes scrutinising the AgriPro against some of it’s competitors like comparing a bottle of champagne with a can of Pepsi”

    Transmission aside, this is enabled by Atlantic Fluid Tech’s innovative valve solutions.  The author of the article writes:

    “What makes the AgriPro even more effective in the field is JCB’s regenerative hydraulics, which harness gravitational forces to make boom lowering and retraction not only more energy efficient, but quicker.  Lowering the boom is now considerably faster, the hydraulic cylinders using oil that is redirected from one side of the ram to the other, without passing through the entire hydraulic system.”
