Understanding the Manufacturer’s Recommended Retail Price (MRRP)

  • The listed MRRP is JCB’s non-binding recommended retail price for a JCB product at the stated specification, and excludes VAT.
  • JCB sells its products through a network of independent authorised dealers and therefore the MRRP is not the selling price of a JCB product.
  • If you wish to obtain a quotation for a JCB product from a JCB dealer then please use the quotation tool in this website or contact a JCB dealer directly.
  • JCB dealers are free to sell products at any price they wish which may be higher or lower than the MRRP and the MRRP is only a non-binding recommendation to JCB dealers.


In July 2020, this electric digger scooped one of the world’s most prestigious prizes for engineering innovation - The UK’s Royal Academy of Engineering MacRobert Award. The prize for innovation has been presented since 1969 to honour a wide variety of engineering feats, including the CT scanner and Rolls-Royce’s Pegasus engine, used in the Harrier jump jet.
The 4 battery pack will last for the equivalent to a full day's work, subject to the type of job.

The on board charger gives a 20-80% charge time of 10.5 hours from a 110V supply or 5 hours from a 240V supply. The fast charge option has a charging time from empty of 2.5 hours from a 415V supply.

The batteries can be charged with a 110V yellow industrial socket, with the option of a 230V industrial 3 pin blue socket; specified upon time of order.
Even after 2000 full charge and discharge cycles (expected to be over 10 years) the batteries still have over 85% of their capacity left.
The machine shares the same structure, canopy, dig end, hydraulics and controls as the diesel and performs in exactly the same way. The only change is that the power pack changes from a diesel to electric.
If the machine is left on, but not working, the battery will run down at a very low rate to conserve power and last 120 hours before recharging.
The batteries cannot be easily stolen as they sit deep within the structure of the machine, it would take several hours to remove.
The machine is completely stand alone and free of tethers to improve safety on site and eliminate trip hazards.
There is no maintenance required on the battery packs at all and daily checks are reduced to a minimum; increasing time on site.
The warranty on the machine is 2 years.
The warranty on the batteries is 5 years.
