The JCB JS160 is in the 17 ton category of our range of heavy tracked excavators. It’s engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.
A closed box section revolving frame increases strength and reduces stress. It also makes these 360 excavators highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used strong parts too – premium industry standards in fact.
Meanwhile, this 17 ton excavator’s engine is a highly efficient JCB EcoMAX 444 TCA 93, compliant with Stage 3b and Tier 4 interim compliant. It provides a fuel saving of up to 9% over our outgoing models. The benefits of the JS160 series of tracked excavators don’t end there either.
