JCB 220x Tracked Excavator


Our vision from the start was to design and engineer our most advanced 20 tonne tracked excavator. In fact, our best ever. Listening to customer demands, our engineering teams have obsessed over every minute detail of this world-class excavator. Using automotive quality materials and proven components, our design is both rugged and refined.

The result is a machine to be taken seriously.

A machine to be trusted.

4 years of hydraulic development combined with the latest Japanese components have delivered the best balance of controllability and efficiency.

Customisable proportional controls allow you to set your preference of speed and control of attachments while the new dozer option adds extra versatility. 

The boom float feature allows for smooth grading along hard surfaces and improves breaker efficiency by applying the correct amount of pressure.

Perfect for tough conditions, the power boost button increases pressure by 10% for up to 9 seconds for extra tear out.


We’ve used ergonomic design, automotive quality materials and engineering excellence to deliver exceptional comfort. And with ride comfort and low noise to rival the best in the business, there’s enough to make even the most demanding operator extremely happy.

The spacious JCB CommandPlus cab with high quality injection moulded interior features an industry-leading Grammer seat with wide, adjustable arm rests and reclines 145°.

Improved cab isolation using latest double cushion viscous mounts reduces vibration and noise into the cab helping to deliver low in-cab noise of 67dB(A). 

A powerful new HVAC with 11 targeted vents provides optimum performance in hot and cold environments and the cool/heat box comes as standard.



We’ve invested 4 years of research and development and listened to 1,000 customers like you to build a machine that’s ready to perform in the most extreme conditions; 55ºC heat or freezing temperatures. A machine that works with extreme efficiency on the demolition site or non-stop in the quarry.

Best-in-class productivity lets you move more, with a massive 15200 kgf bucket tear out and fast cycle times.

Auto-stop and auto-idle provides fuel savings of up to 5%.

Hydraulic pipes and hoses have a large diameter for increased productivity and efficiency.

JCB offers a GPS factory ready option to facilitate fitment of 2D and 3D systems.


It’s taken 4 years of hydraulic, electronic and electrical development and thousands of hours of extreme endurance testing, to build you a machine that doesn’t just look extremely strong, it is extremely strong.

The 220X has been tested to extremes using a whole machine shaker rig to replicate 15,000 hours of tracking and vibration.

We've carried out 30,000 window and door operation tests to prove components quality and hot and cold climate testing (55°C to -30°C) in controlled conditions and locations around the world.

Our engine technology is tried and proven; the 220X EcoMAX engines have been tested to 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments. 

Our latest boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, reinforced with three-piece wrapper plates and cast ends for extra strength and durability. 



Using latest ergonomic design and with the help of customer and operator feedback, the new 210X and 220X have been designed to be easy to use and easy to transport making it easy to get more work done.

The new start-stop button for ease of start-up means the operator doesn't have to turn the key to start it back up again. The start sequence also allows you to start digging within 2 seconds.

Pipework shut-off taps are now added as standard with SAE fittings to enable quick connection of attachments while the easy quickhitch provides simplified operation with an override for removing large breakers or forks. 

Our advanced tool select system improved attachment handling by monitoring pressure and flow.
