MINIMUM SWING

THE 245XR HAS REDUCED TAILSWING WHICH MAXIMISES ITS POTENTIAL TO PERFORM SAFELY IN TIGHT AND CONGESTED ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS MODERN HIGHWAYS AND HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS.

  • The 245XR tracked excavator has a tailswing radius of 1.72m, 40% less than the 220X, allowing it to work safely against buildings and road barriers.
  • The short front swing and reduced tailswing give a working radius reduction of 1.6m, compared to the 220X.
  • It can work in a smaller area than the 220X, providing great comfort and power in a compact footprint.

MAXIMUM SPACE

DESPITE HAVING REDUCED TAILSWING, THE 245XR FEATURES THE JCB COMMANDPLUS CAB, ONE OF THE BIGGEST, MOST COMFORTABLE AND EASY-TO-OPERATE CABS ON THE MARKET.

  • Customer-led control layout, with operator feedback contributing to the design.
  • Double cushion viscous mounts reduce vibration and cab noise to 69dB(A).
  • Seat-mounted joystick and switch controls move with the operator.
  • Bluetooth radio is fully integrated into the control screen.

EXTREME STRENGTH

IT'S TAKEN 4 YEARS OF HYDRAULIC, ELECTRONIC AND ELECTRICAL DEVELOPMENT TO BUILD YOU A MACHINE THAT DOESN'T JUST LOOK STRONG, IT IS STRONG.

  • Our DIESELMAX engines are proven in 70 different machines globally.
  • Machine shaker rig testing replicated 15,000 hours of tracking and vibration.
  • 30,000 window and door operation tests prove component quality.
  • Hot and cold climate testing (55°C to -30°C) in locations around the world.

EXTRAORDINARY ATTENTION TO DETAIL

THE NEW 245XR REDUCED TAIL SWING EXCAVATOR UTILISES STATE-OF-THE-ART AUTOMOTIVE-STYLE PRODUCTION FACILITIES TO BRING YOU NOT JUST GREAT EXCAVATORS, BUT EXCEPTIONAL ONES.

  • The whole design is optimised to protect the machine; side bay doors are set back from the counterweight face and the right hand platform corner sits within the slew radius to prevent damage and scratching.
  • New recessed counterweight design protects the rear end from impact damage. 
  • 1,232 validation checks are performed to replicate real-life applications.
  • Robot welding of dig end and undercarriage ensures quality and accuracy.

EXCELLENT CONTROL

PROVEN JAPANESE COMPONENTS DELIVER PRECISE, EFFICIENT CONTROL, WHILE CUSTOMISABLE ELECTRO-PROPORTIONAL CONTROLS ALLOW OPERATORS TO SET THEIR PREFERENCE OF SPEED AND CONTROL OF ATTACHMENTS.

  • A power boost button increases pressure to provide extra tearout. 
  • The 245XR hydraulic excavator features the latest generation valve block for greater efficiency and productivity, whilst delivering class-leading control.

  • Factory fitted HBCVs makes the machine ready for lifting operations.
