It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS160 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.

Our Tier 4 compliant Dieselmax motor produces high torque at low revs for great efficiency.

There’s a massive 97 kN bucket tearout for superb productivity, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.

Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow a JS160 17 ton excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimized settings.

Maximum productivity, minimum spend

  • JCB’s tracked excavators use hydraulic regeneration to recycle oil across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Auto-idle technology automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use.
