JS190 Excavator

The JCB JS190 is in the 19.5 ton category of our range of heavy track excavators. It’s engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.

The reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with a single piece wrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability. A closed box section revolving frame increases strength and simultaneously reducing stress. This also means it is highly resistant to impact damage.
