A machine for every application
There are 16 models in the JS Auto tracked range, with options of undercarriage and work equipment, so it comes as no surprise that JCB can supply the perfect excavator for virtually any task.
Take the quarrying and aggregates industries. They are looking for the high, consistent productivity, superb durability and excellent fuel efficiency offered by our over 20-tonne machines. For instance, the JS330 and 460 offer fast, efficient cycle times, expected uptime of around 98% and a robust undercarriage and running gear.
And the JS220LR, 260LR, 330LR, 360LR and JS460LR feature long-reach boom and dippers to get to even the most inaccessible mineral deposits or for clearing irrigation canals or ditches.
When it comes to house building and general contracting, it’s more about: ease of use so that different operators can quickly get to grips with the controls; a good compact design with excellent all-round visibility for safe working in a busy environment; and versatility, with machines being required to carry, dig, grade, load and lift. Excellent choices here from our under 20-tonne range are the JS115, 130LC and 145LC, plus the enhanced power and lift of the JS160, 180 and 190.
These same machines also offer versatile, reliable performance in civil engineering, and highway and rail construction and maintenance applications. But we also provide specialist equipment for dedicated tasks in these industries. For example: the JS460LR is purpose designed to give long reach at 24 metres, ideal for river and waterway maintenance, irrigation and swamp draining; the JS220LC TAB features high-lift capability for extracting trench boxes and removing sheet piling; and the JS330ME and 360ME have optimised boom and arm configurations ideal for the mass extraction of bulk material.
