Forestry work can be rigorous and hazardous and, in response, JCB presents the 325T Forestmaster compact track loader. Specifically built for forestry challenge, the Forestmaster offers you all the innovation, ergonomics and safety youd expect from a JCB compact track loader exclusive side door entry, a huge operator environment, best-in-class productivity and visibility along with several dedicated features.
Its a heavily reinforced track loader, for example, with stringent FOPS protection and heavy armor to key components. Theres much more too, including a forestry cutting head and an advanced cooling system.
Access to a JCB 325T Forestmaster compact track loader is provided via a door thats more than double the size of rival offerings.
Our cab is quite simply in a class of its own; we offer a 33% larger operator environment than rival machines.
Theres a fully adjustable mechanical suspension seat (or an optional heated air suspension variant) for optimum comfort. Ventilation, meanwhile, is excellent on all models fitted with a cab, thanks to a sliding window on the left side.
Low effort servo-assisted controls make it easier to operate your compact track loader. The right control panel features machine diagnostics, an electronic throttle and the compact track loader's ignition switch.
Three settings allow operators to choose the sensitivity of joystick movement; this makes it quick and straightforward to tailor controls to the tasks at hand.
Controls to various machine options are ergonomically placed at roof level in the operators line of sight.
The JCB 325T Forestmaster compact track loader benefits from our unique PowerBoom design a single-sided reinforced high tensile strength steel boom, with internal baffle plates for added strength, constructed from 20% more steel than competitive twin-arm designs.
The PowerBoom structure provides a safe route for hydraulic hoses so that theyre well protected from damage. To keep the fuel tank protected, its mounted inside the loader tower; theres also an easily accessible drain port.
To ensure optimum precision and build quality, we use advanced manufacturing and assembly processes during the manufacture of key components.
A large loader arm cross-member provides added strength: vital for when youre using a standard mechanical quickhitch or the optional hydraulic variant.
The door on your JCB 325T compact track loader is designed to be stiff and durable for added structural strength and rigidity. Another area that boosts rigidity and service life is the single-piece chassis.
JCBs exclusive left-hand-side entry system allows the 325T Forestmaster compact track loader operators to access the machine without having to climb over large cumbersome attachments or under an unsupported boom.
The emergency exit on a JCB compact track loader is via the front of the machine, as opposed to via the small rear window as per traditional twin-arm designs.
With a 270° field of vision, this compact track loader has up to 60% better visibility than competitive machines (which offer around 165°). Because JCBs unique PowerBoom design doesnt require a rear torque tube on vertical lift models, visibility is further improved. Theres a standard-fit rear view mirror at the operators eye level for simplified rearward visibility and operation.
JCB's PowerBooms design means theres excellent visibility to both the left and right side of your compact track loader. Part of the reason why visibility is so strong on a JCB compact track loader is that our EcoMax engine doesnt require bulky after-treatment, making its installation more compact.
The 325T Forestmaster compact track loader features variable displacement piston pump hydraulics for faster cycle times and smoother multi-functioning.
JCBs Smoothride System (SRS) allows the boom and load to move independently of the chassis, ensuring improved load retention and operator comfort. In turn, this means faster loading cycles and travel times.
Optional parallel lift helps to keep loads level throughout the lift cycle, which is ideal for carrying palletized loads.
Standard mechanical or optional hydraulic quick hitches are designed to meet stringent JCB standards; they make for quick and efficient attachment changes.
For the ultimate in versatile performance, our high flow hydraulics mean you can choose from a huge range of 31 different attachment types. Operators can use an even wider variety of hydraulic attachments with our optional 7-way multi-function joystick.
Vertical lift offers you maximum lift capacity at maximum height and reach, making it an ideal configuration for loading and carrying duties.
JCBs Tier 4 EcoMax engine uses up to 9% less fuel than Tier 3 units, saving you money. It also produces its peak torque at low revs for fuel-efficient matching of the transmission and hydraulics.
Because the EcoMax engine doesnt require costly exhaust after-treatment or heat-resistant lube oils, it saves money on service costs. Whats more, this engine can be remapped to operate on low quality fuels, meaning your loader can be resold across different territories, improving its residual value.
An optional 2-speed transmission helps your JCB 325T Forestmaster compact track loader achieve quicker travel and cycle times.
All of your loaders daily maintenance points are easily accessed via a large rear service door. Hydraulics use O-ring face seals and incorporate 38 percent fewer parts than outgoing designs. The end result is reduced downtime.
When it comes to more complex maintenance, our tilting cab design ensures easy access to key components. It only takes one person to tilt the cab for excellent access to your compact track loaders internal componentry.
Track retention is excellent on our compact track loaders, courtesy of a solid undercarriage with cast steel triple-flanged rollers.
