Tough to Beat For Performance

The 2.5T 25Z-1 mini excavator is powered by performance enhancements across the hydraulics, tracking, attachments and above all, the brand-new Kohler engine.

The 25Z-1 comes with key features as standard, including Follow-Me-Home worklights and the 2GO System: unique to JCB. And if you’re thinking how much do mini excavators weigh, rest assured this model meets the criteria for safe towing.

  • A low transport weight of up to 2,563kg, so the 25Z-1 can be safely towed in regions with the restriction of 3,500kg.

  • New display screen to highlight any issues before operation begins and communicate essential diagnostics, keeping you a step ahead of any downtime.

Tough to Beat For Ease of Use & Comfort

When looking at a mini excavator for sale, it’s the details that make the difference. That’s why we’ve incorporated a few intuitive touches to make the 25Z-1 even simpler to operate.

  • Wide-opening steel bonnet and external filler for easy fuelling and daily checks.
  • A hydraulic quickhitch allows for changes between a large variety of compatible attachments, offering the ultimate flexibility. 
  • Fully adjustable suspension seat and large cab ensures all-day operator comfort.
  • Auto machine health checks ensure your machine is in full working order at the start of each day.

  • Coloured coded Hydraulic hoses are routed through the boom, keeping them away from potential damage.
  • Best-in-class 500-hour greasing intervals thanks to graphite impregnated bronze brushes, saving you time and money. 
  • Auto stop and idle functions save fuel by turning off the engine when controls are inactive, while load sensing hydraulics conserve power by using it only on demand.
  • Flat glass windows are used to minimise replacement costs in the event of damage.
