The JCB JS220 is the 22-tonne model in our heavy tracked excavators range. It’s blessed with exceptional efficiency, strength, productivity, comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.

The JS220’s new DIESELMAX 448 engine provides up to 20% fuel savings over our outgoing model, while a closed box-section revolving frame increases strength and reduces stress. We’ve also created an all-new high-strength boom and dipper for this 360 excavator, and we’ve used only the very best components too, like Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba main control valves.

The JS220 tracked excavator’s 129kW JCB DIESELMAX 448 engine is highly efficient, producing its maximum torque at low revs for fuel savings of up to 20% over our outgoing models.

A hefty 155kN bucket tearout makes our JS220 tracked excavator up to 12% more productive than its closest competitors, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.

Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow operators of these 360 excavators to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.

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 the engine speed of the JS220 tracked excavator when its hydraulics aren’t in use

We’ve designed JCB JS220 tracked excavators to be comfortable, ergonomic, simple and intuitive to operate. Which is good for operators of 360 excavators but even better for you; after all, great ease of use equals great productivity.

Function switches on this tracked excavator are easy to reach and include the heater and climate control panels, while the side unit doubles as part of the immobiliser code selector.

JCB JS220 tracked excavators have a spacious luggage tray behind the operator’s seat.

The JCB Advanced Monitoring System keeps tabs on functions and inputs during different working modes.
Demist/defrost keeps a JS220 360 excavator’s front window clear at all times in any conditions.

We’ve designed JCB JS220 tracked excavators to be low maintenance and easily serviceable, making them affordable, efficient and highly productive to run.
Bonnets open and close easily with gas-assisted cylinders, and the JS220 tracked excavator’s 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 these 360 excavators.
Grease points are centralized on JS220 tracked excavators for safe and easy access to high-level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).
Because they’re mounted side by side, the JS220 tracked excavator’s engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily

We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make these 360 excavators last longer.

A new reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with three-piece wrapper plates and cast ends for strength and durability.

Robust cast ends and pivot bosses make the new boom and dipper on this tracked excavator extremely strong.

The high-strength undercarriage of JS220 tracked excavators is of a fully welded X-frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.

The turret on JS220 tracked excavators is welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.
For ultimate reliability, we construct our tracked excavators using only the very best componentry, including Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba main control valves.
