The JCB JS460 is towards the top end of our range of heavy tracked excavators. Weighing in at around 46 tonnes, it’s blessed 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 tracked excavators highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used the best components too – premium industry standards in fact – like Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba main control valves. The Tier 2-compliant 6-cylinder 9.84-litre Isuzu AA-6SD engine produces a formidable 228 kW at just 2000 rpm; this means it’s very efficient. What’s more, this 360 excavator’s simple mechanical fuel injection system ensures that engine servicing is straightforward. A vast 27,500kg bucket tearout makes our JS460 tracked excavators up to XX% more productive than the 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 JS460 tracked excavator when its hydraulics is not in use.
