85Z-1

At JCB, we've been building tracked excavators for over 48 years. Our latest 85Z and 86C mini excavators are products of all this experience and insight, designed to be robust, strong and durable without compromising performance.

JCB's 85Z and 86C are high performance productive mini excavators. Peak power and torque at low engine speeds makes for efficient cycles, and there's a wealth of innovative design features to get the most from every drop of fuel.

We've always believed that a fundamental part of high productivity is a comfy, ergonomic working environment. Consequently, you'll find that cabs and controls on an 86Z or 86C are great places to work, even for long stints.

A safe site is of paramount importance to any owner; likewise machinery that's easy and fast to service. Both the 85Z and 86C will protect machinery, operators and bystanders alike, as well as providing excellent serviceability - minimising downtime.

Our tracked excavators are designed to give you more than just great performance and long service life. Machines like the 85Z and 86C will also provide ultimate value for money, both on and off your working sites.

Features

  • Twin auxiliary lines generate both high and low hydraulic flows providing versatility with an array of attachments.
  • Efficient cycles with peak power and torque at low engine speeds.
  • Excellent front visibility courtesy of a 70/30 front screen split.
  • Best-in-class 500 hour greasing intervals.

SAFETY

Optional front screen guards provide peace of mind for operators, whilst boom and optional cab worklight guards protect vulnerable components in hazardous applications.

Stability on both machines is best-in-class thanks to a large track frame width and low centre of gravity.

To ensure that your hydraulics are only operated in a safe lockable position, JCB’s unique 2GO system requires the operator to acknowledge they are ready to work.

The JCB 86c and 85z have excellent front visibility courtesy of a 70/30 front screen split. What’s more, there’s a clear view of the front right track for easy, safe trench digging and manoeuvring. Overall we have 11% more visibility than before.

With a true zero tailswing design,the 85z reduces impact risks in tight workspaces. For safer lifting operations optional boom, dozer and dipper hose burst check valves are available.

SERVICEABILITY

JCB minisn have the best SAE service rating on the market, partly because routine checks can be done easily without special tools and the gas-strutted 30˚ tilting cab.

All dig end and dozer greasing intervals are best-in-class at 500 hours due to our graphite impregnated bronze bushes saving time and money.

Underneath the wide opening steel bonnet you can easily fill the fuel tank on a JCB mini from ground level, made easier with the external diesel indicator. The optional refueling pump features an auto stop function for reduced spillage and increased safety.

The sealed idler tension unit stops soil build-up; and dozer hoses terminate at the bulkhead for simple replacement.

The two piece floor mat is removable for easy cleaning whilst the anti slip cast tread plate provides safe entry and egress as well as long term protection to the paint bodywork.

Our 450mm/600mm steel tracks are pre-drilled to allow easy fitment of bolt on rubber pads. There is also the option of dedicated Road Liner Pads (GeoGrip), which enable individual segments to be replaced if damaged.

STRUCTURAL STRENGTH

Our fully robot welded boom and four-plate dipper design are made of high tensile strength steel, with internal baffle plates providing added structural strength for longlife durability.

The bodywork on our mini excavators is made exclusively from pressed steel with no plastic, so it’s strong and easy to repair.

These latest 8-tonne class machines boast a heavy-duty kingpost which features durable re-bushable pivots to optimise service life. It also provides a safe route for all excavator hoses.

We’ve used only tried and tested premium manufacturers like JCB Diesel by Kohler engine, Nachi and Bosch-Rexroth hydraulic components and Bridgestone tracks.

High quality 450mm rubber tracks with interlocking links will perform in even the most arduous applications.

The heavy duty boom cylinder guard provides excellent protection with optional dipper and crowd cylinder guards available for more arduous applications.

COMFORT

The cab is incredibly spacious and its large door provides easy, safe access. Inside, you’ll find 6% more space than before, plenty of storage, a phone tray, stowage nets and cup holder. A radio, 12V phone charger, powerful heater with window de-mister and a high performing air conditioning system with 9 vents completes the picture.

To ensure all-day operator comfort, there’s fully adjustable suspension seating with an optional heated air suspension seat with independent adjustable positions. Switches are ergonomically laid out around a crystal clear informative colour LCD display with optional reversing camera.

The standard electro proportional high flow line has 10 selectable flow rates for total attachment compatibility and seamless operation. A switch in the cab provides easy operation of single or double-acting auxiliary flow.

The hydraulic valve block is isolated from the chassis by rubber mounts for reduced noise and vibration. It’s also easily accessed beneath the side-opening bonnet.

With ergonomic electro-hydraulic dozer control as standard, operators can achieve smooth and precise grading control.

LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP

The load-sensing hydraulics on JCB’s 8-tonne excavators only consume power on demand, conserving fuel for when you need it most.

The patented near zero pressure return line circuit further improves fuel efficiency as the pump does not need to overcome as high a pressure before any work can be done.

A unqiue feature for even greater fuel economy, the engine rpm automaticaly drops below idle when the operator’s armrest is lifted and reduces noise level.

Auto idle can be programmed to activate between 2 and 30 seconds after the controls have been inactive to increase fuel efficiency. With two dig modes (including ECO for maximum efficiency, heavy for maximum productivity) you can tailor performance to suit your application.

With identical bucket pin geometry to the world leading JCB 3CX backhoe loader, attachments are fully interchangeable.

Because damage sometimes happen on site, we use flat glass windows throughout, minimizing replacement costs.
