140X

Our vision from the start was to design and engineer our most advanced tracked excavator range ever.

The new JCB 14 tonne machine sits perfectly alongside its highly acclaimed 20 tonne big brother. Our engineering teams have once again obsessed over every minute detail of this new world-class excavator and used the same quality materials and proven components. The result is another machine in the X SERIES to be taken seriously. Another machine to be trusted.

It’s taken 4 years of hydraulic, electronic and electrical development and thousands of hours of extreme endurance testing, to build you a machine that doesn’t just look extremely strong, it is extremely strong. The 140X has been tested to extremes using a whole machine shaker rig to replicate 15,000 hours of tracking and vibration.

We've carried out 30,000 window and door operation tests to prove components quality and hot and cold climate testing (55°C to -30°C) in controlled conditions and locations around the world. Our engine technology is tried and proven; JCB EcoMAX engines have been tested to 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.

We’ve used ergonomic design, automotive quality materials and engineering excellence to deliver exceptional comfort. And with ride comfort and low noise to rival the best in the business, there’s enough to make even the most demanding operator extremely happy.

The spacious JCB CommandPlus cab with high quality injection moulded interior features an industry-leading Grammer seat with wide, adjustable arm rests and reclines 145°. Improved cab isolation using latest double cushion viscous mounts reduces vibration and noise into the cab helping to deliver low in-cab noise of 67dB(A). A powerful new HVAC with 11 targeted vents provides optimum performance in hot and cold environments and the cool/heat box comes as standard.

4 years of hydraulic development combined with proven Japanese components have delivered the very best balance of controllability and efficiency. Customisable proportional controls allow the operator to set their preference of speed and control of attachments. The proven Japanese hydraulics deliver precise and efficient control. The operator can select Auto-Stop and Auto-Idle depending on preference. Power boost button increases pressure by 9% for up to 9 seconds to provide extra tear out in tough conditions.

Using latest ergonomic design and with the help of customer and operator feedback, the new 140X has been designed to have best-in-class ease of use when working in any application. Start-stop button for ease of start-up means the operator doesn’t have to turn the key to start it back up again.

The start sequence also allows you to start digging within 2 seconds. Pipework shut-off taps are now added as standard to enable quick connection of attachments, while the easy quickhitch provides simplified operation with an override for removing large breakers or forks. Advanced tool select system improves attachment handling by monitoring pressure and flow.

We’ve invested years of research and development and listened to thousands of customers like you to build a machine that’s ready to perform in the most extreme conditions, on any job site. Best-in-class productivity with large diameter hydraulic pipes and hoses and an innovative hydraulic regeneration system that recycles oil across the cylinders.

Auto-stop and Auto-idle on the JCB’s EcoMAX Tier 4 Final / Stage IV engine provides fuel saving of up to 5%. Larger bucket cylinder for 11% increased bucket tear out.
