Terex/Mecalac/Benford Dumper Ignition Switches

Benford, Terex, Terex/JCB and Mecalac produce a range of site dumpers from the HD1000KR through to the TA9 and PES is one of the largest stockist and suppliers of spare parts for them in the UK. From our stock of over £750k of dumper parts, PES are able to supply Benford, Terex, Terex/JCB and Mecalac ignition switches from stock for next day delivery.

For those of a certain age who can remember electric start Lister Petter engines in Benford dumpers with just a Lucas ignition switch to start it, things have moved on since then and to comply with legislation Terex, Terex/JCB and subsequently Mecalac, as with all manufacturers have, are now producing dumpers with quite complicated electrics on. The Benford, Terex, Terex/JCB and Mecalac ignition switch has moved on since then as well It and instead of just operating a starter motor the  ignition switch is the starting point for safety systems, ECU controls, lighting equipment, engine pre-heat and a myriad of other complex electrical circuits. This is for dumpers without a cab, the cabbed Mecalac dumpers also have air-conditioning, heaters, USB connections amongst other things which brings another load of switches, control panels, relays, sender units and warning buzzers into the equation. The more modern Mecalac ignition switches connect directly on to the Mecalac loom via a plug, the days of crimped Lucas connectors are over, and therefore to avoid problems it is recommended that you fit the correct part rather than bodge one to fit. Why compromise by trying to save a few pounds on a Ebay switch or a cheap Chinese copy ignition switch that shorts out and burns the starter motor and loom out on your £26k worth of Terex, Terex/JCB, Mecalac dumper. Save yourself the hassle, purchase the correct one from the UK’s leading dumper parts supplier.
