Taking mini excavators to the max
Tracked excavators have been a part of the JCB manufacturing family for over 50 years. Using all of this experience and insight, our latest mini diggers like the new 51R-1 have been developed to exceed even your most exacting demands.
Put simply, this is one of the strongest and highest performing mini excavators we’ve ever built. It’s highly productive, compact, agile, innovative and economical to own. Not only that but it’s very safe to operate and easy to service too.
Control your 51R-1 mini’s engine speed for different hydraulic flows by simply cycling through four different power bands: Light, Eco, Heavy and Heavy Plus. This means you can tailor performance to any application.The patented low-pressure return line circuit further improves fuel efficiency because the pump doesn’t need to overcome a very high pressure before work can start.
Load-sensing hydraulics are standard-fit on this mini digger. This innovative feature means that your hydraulics only consume power on demand, conserving fuel for when you need it most.
The reduced tailswing JCB 51R-1 mini digger is incredibly manoeuvrable even in the most confined spaces because there’s no rear overhang outside the footprint of the tracks.
Tracking performance is smooth and precise, ensuring high dozer capabilities and fast travel times. To increase productivity, our auto kickdown motors automatically adapt to changes in terrain, increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue.
With our class-leading greasing intervals of 500 hours, you can expect minimal downtime. Better still, our new monitor provides alerts on your excavator’s diagnostic status.
The new JCB 51R-1 mini excavator cab is fully ROPS and TOPS compliant. For even more protection to both cab and operator, opt for impact protection glass on your new machine. Standard boom and optional worklight guards offer great protection for vulnerable components in hazardous applications. JCB’s Safety Lever Lock fully isolates this mini digger’s hydraulic functions to prevent unintended movement.
Our clean four-plate dipper design provides added structural strength and durability. The fully robot welded boom and dipper are made of high tensile strength steel, with internal baffle plates in the boom for long-life durability.The heavy duty boom cylinder guard and optional dipper and crowd ram guards give maximum excavator arm protection, even during the toughest jobs. We only use trusted premium manufacturers including Perkins engines, Nachi and Bosch-Rexroth hydraulic components and Bridgestone tracks.
The new JCB 51R-1 mini digger has an even more spacious cab than before, with storage galore, a phone tray, stowage net and a cup holder. The whole area is accessed easily and safely via a large door. Our new deluxe fully adjustable suspension seating provides great comfort for excavator operators; our heated air suspension option, meanwhile, has independent adjustable positions for the ultimate in ergonomics.
JCB mini excavators boast an innovative new rotary controller and easy touch switches have been specially designed for easy operation. With ergonomic electro-hydraulic dozer control as standard, operators can achieve smooth and precise grading control.You can alternate quickly between single and double-acting auxiliary flow thanks to a convenient switch in the cab.
You can easily adjust and programme flow settings for specific attachments, with a built in memory to store your settings so that they can be easily retrieved between jobs. Information such as service and machine diagnostics help the operator to keep on top of the status of the machine. Alerts and service interval countdowns will keep you up to date, and always one step ahead of the possibility of downtime.
Live readings of fuel consumption give the operator an idea as to how the machine is performing at any stage of application.
