This article describes the jcb 805b excavator with powerslide adjustable boom design, and optional two front-end designs. Weight reductions have been made when compared with the earlier model and a diagram shows the optimum and extreme digging range of the digger using the powerslide beam. Reference is made to the design and operation of the hydraulic systems. The development of this model is traced from the first prototype and details are included of the rigorous testing programme carried out with pre-production models. /TRRL/
