JCB is preparing to offer Stage V compliant engines across its equipment lines, with updates to its own engine range and changes to supplier models. Group director of engines Alan Tolley said that the company has preferred to tackle emissions within the combustion system, rather than simply adding aftertreatment to the exhaust system; however, for Stage V, diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) will become necessary.

“Stage V calls for a further reduction in particulate matter, but it has been our focus for a long time,” said Tolley. “JCB fully believes that diesel engines will continue to play a major role in powering construction equipment for the foreseeable future.”
