First job is to ask JCB how much to upgrade what pipework you’ve currently got to a 5cx Wastemaster type setup.

Basically this gives you a two way auxiliary circuit that is operable in conjunction with the extending dipper for attachments like the Jaw Bucket, Tilt Bucket and in this case a Shear.


You can see the extra pipework here and how it sits extended and retracted.





There’s also an image of a 5cx with the twin auxiliary circuits that will run a full rotating grab setup or the like in conjunction with the extender.



If you watch the short video at around 1.20 is what you’re trying to achieve basically, in this case running a Jaw Bucket.




Handy if you set it up properly, as good power and reach available.
