Machinery giant JCB used a Somerset dairy farm to debut its all-electric compact wheel loader.
The JCB 403E compact wheel loader was demonstrated at Neil Baker’s dairy farm in Haselbury Plunknett during the Down to Earth regenerative farming event earlier this summer.
Mr Baker is one of Arla’s regenerative pilot farms, focusing on reducing emissions from his herd of 1,800 Holstein cows.
The JCB 403E was developed for various farming enterprises, including livestock and arable units. With a lifting height of 3.10m, it includes an integrated charger to connect to various power sources and comes with a starting price tag of €79,900.
