Welcome to our site updates blog. This is where we keep you up to date about changes to the site, such as new features that are added, updates to the stock quantities or new parts being added to the database. The blog was started 24 September 2016, so does not include information about changes to the site that were made before that date.
Certain products in our JCB Parts Catalogue are being updated to include extended descriptions. This means that the parts will have extra information describing the part and its function. As much as we would like to do this for all of the parts in our database, it is currently not feasible due to the scale of the project, so only selected items are being treated in this way. You can find a full list in our article JCB Parts with Extended Descriptions.
We recently added an industry news section to the site, but have since decided that this was not the best use of our resources. Many existing sites already do a great job of this. So instead of that, we are concentrating our efforts on providing more great information about JCB spare parts, by creating our JCB Spare Parts Compendium. Each entry in the compendium features information about the parts themselves, describing their function, and also links to all of the existing parts of that kind in our parts directory.
Our eight batch of parts was added to the directory today. You can find full details of this in our article JCB Parts - Batch Eight.
The components for batch seven have all been added to the site. You can find a full list of the components for batch seven in our article Component Parts for Batch Seven.
Our seventh batch of JCB parts (not including clearance batches) was added to the database today. You can find full details of all the parts that have been added in JCB Parts, Batch Seven. The component parts are being added next and we will update you here when that is complete. Don't forget, you can check Parts Directory Updates any time you want to see all of the batches that have been added.
Our high value clearance list is now complete and live on the site. All of the items have been added, including their component parts, retail price, clearance price and stock count. You can find a full list of them, with links to the product pages for more information, on our High Value JCB Parts Clearance page, one of our featured Clearance Listings.
You can also browse clearance listings through our parts catalogue using the filters on the left to display only items that are in the clearance sale. Please contact our team for more information about a part or with any questions you may have. They are always available to help you find the right part for your JCB machine.
We are pleased to have moved the site on to a new server. The process took two weeks and is finally completed. The old server was running an operating system that is due to go out of maintenance updates in March 2017, so it was time.
The new server is much faster than the old one and has all the latest software and security, so you can be sure that the site will always be online, responding quickly and secure. Thanks to Sharp Hosting for all their hard work moving the site over.
The latest feature to be added to the site was made live yesterday. We are now featuring clearance listings in separate articles that can be browsed independently of the main parts catalogue. These articles feature all of our current clearance items for their particular type (high volume or high value) and include price, retail price and the quantity in stock. They are a great way to see all of our clearance items at a glance. Each item is also linked to its product page, so you can get full information if required.
Our high value clearance list is not yet available, but is next on the list for being added to the site. The high volume list is all done, and you can find it linked from the clearance listings page. We will update you here when the high value listing is added.
We are pleased to announce the addition of a filter on our JCB Parts Catalogue that enables you to only display products that are on clearance. This makes it much easier for you to quickly find all of the parts that we have listed on clearance at a special price. All of these products also include details of how many of them we have in stock.
To make use of this filter, visit the parts catalogue page and look for the new filter on the left of the page, at the bottom of the filter list. You will see the heading "On Clearance" and beneath that two options, "High Volume JCB Parts" and "High Value JCB Parts". Currently we only have high volume parts listed on clearance, with high value items being added soon. See the picture for an idea of what it looks like. As soon as you click the filter it will activate automatically and only high volume clearance items will be displayed. To further refine your search, choose a category or model type from the lists.
The stock figures for the JCB parts in our high volume clearance sale were updated today. All of the stock quantities are now up to date with the latest figures. We are in the process of updating the site to provide listings of the clearance parts, and will update you soon here when that facility is available. For now, all of the high volume clearance parts are listed in our JCB Parts Catalogue. The next feature to be added will be a filter on the parts catalogue so clearance parts can be found quickly. Feel free to contact us for more information or to find a specific part.
