It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS220 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.

Our Tier 3 compliant Isuzu engine has a high power rating 172 hp (128 kW); yet, because it produces high torque at low revs, it’s very efficient too.

A massive 34,845 lbf (155kn) bucket tearout makes our JS220 360 excavators up to 12% more productive than the closestcompetitors, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.

Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow a JS220 20 ton excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimized settings.

Maximum productivity minimum spend

  • JCB’s tracked excavators use hydraulic regeneration to recycle oil across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Auto-idle technology automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use.
