  • Low fuel consumption
  • The heavy duty boom cylinder guard and optional dipper and crowd ram guards give maximum excavator arm protection, even during the toughest jobs
  • H-frame undercarriage for increased stability, durability and easier to clean

Features and Benefits

  • The JCB below idle feature means that engine revs are reduced even further when the operators armrest is raised. Fuel economy and noise levels are both improved.
  • Activate ‘One-Touch-Idle’ by pressing the new rotary controller dial. Just another way of reducing engine revs quickly and conserving fuel.
  • Our programmable auto idle can be activated between 2 and 30 seconds after the controls have been inactive, to offer increased fuel efficiencies
  • Control your engine speed with four different power bands to easily toggle through and set to optimum hydraulic flows. This includes light, eco, heavy and heavy plus, all of which can be tailored to suit your application.
  • The patented low pressure return line circuit further improves fuel efficiency, because the pump does not need to overcome as high a pressure before any work can be done.
