Before you buy a wheeled excavator, you need to know it’s going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of it. Fortunately, with a JCB JS175W, strength and durability come as standard.
We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make this excavator last longer. A JCB JS175W’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piece wrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.
The high-strength undercarriage of JS175W 17.5 tonne wheeled excavators is of a fully enclosed, fully-welded box section for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.
The turret on a JS175W wheeled excavator is then welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.
We’ve designed the JCB JS175W wheeled excavator to be low maintenance and easily serviceable. Which makes it affordable, efficient and highly productive.
Bonnets open and close easily with gas-assisted cylinders, and the service bays are large and wide for good access. 1000-hour boom and dipper greasing intervals and a 5000-hour oil life provide maximum uptime on this excavator. Grease points are centralised on a JS175W 17.5 tonne excavator too, for safe and easy access to high level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).
Because they’re mounted side by side, JS175W wheeled excavators’ engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily.
It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that a JCB JS175W wheeled excavator is designed to make the most of both.
Our Tier 4 Final compliant 129 kW EcoMAX engine produces high torque at low revs for great efficiency.
A 105kN bucket tearout makes the JS175W excavator highly productive, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.
Simultaneous moving and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow operators of JS175W wheeled excavators to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.
We’ve designed the JCB JS175W wheeled excavator to be comfortable, safe, ergonomic, simple and intuitive to operate. Which is good for operators of this excavator but even better for you; after all, great ease of use equals great productivity.
Cushioned boom and dipper ends prevent shock loadings, protect your machine and increase operator comfort, while 6 viscous rubber mounts minimise noise and vibration.
A 70/30 front screen split for a clear view forwards, plus a large laminated glass roof window provide these wheeled excavators with exceptional all-round visibility
To keep everything under control, a JCB JS175W wheeled excavator has a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking. Function switches are easy to reach and include the heater and climate control panels, while the side unit doubles as part of the immobiliser code selector.
