Designed and developed using our Efficient Design philosophy, the JS220 is an 22-tonne tracked excavator that’s equipped with a host of efficiency, performance, comfort and safety innovations.

JCB’s new DIESELMAX engines use up to 10% less fuel than our Tier 3 units, saving you money. This is partly due to the fact that DIESELMAX engines produce high torque at just 1500 –1600 rpm, making for improved fuel-efficient matching of the hydraulics.

The high-strength undercarriage of a JS220 is of a fully welded X-frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.

  • The reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with three-piece wrapper plates and cast ends for strength and durability.
  • Robust cast ends and pivot bosses make the new boom and dipper on this tracked excavator extremely strong.
  • The turret on JS220 is welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.


JCB JS220s have excellent front visibility, with a 70/30 front screen split and a clear view of the front right track for easy, safe trench digging and manoeuvring.

  • For tremendous speed and control, a JCB JS220 has a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking.
  • It can also be specified with proportional auxiliary control options for even more smoothness and precision.
  • An easy-to-read 7” colour multi-function display provides instant operational information, and has customisable home screens.


JCB’s Plexus Oil Filter System extends oil life to 5,000hrs by constantly filtering hydraulic fluid down to 2 microns, reducing risk of contamination.

  • JCB JS200/210/220 grease points are centralised for safe and easy access to high level pivots.
  • The filters on a JS200/210/220 (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel) are centrally located for fast, easy servicing.
  • The Tier 2 Compliant JCB DIESELMAX engine has been proven in over 200,000 machines.
