A great business decision
A tracked excavator that’s tailor-made for the rental industry, JCB’s new JS131 offers an unbeatable mixture of durability and unparalleled ease of maintenance.
As the only 13-tonne excavator on the market that doesn’t require DPF, SCR or AdBlue after-treatment, the JS131 is, primarily, a machine designed to maximise uptime and profit. It’s also built tough enough to withstand the sort of treatment to which rental machines are often subjected. Being a JCB, this excavator certainly isn’t without refinement or innovative flourishes either, boasting great visibility, productivity, efficiency, comfort and safety.
This excavator features a 55kW JCB EcoMAX engine that meets all T4F requirements without requiring DPF, SCR or AdBlue. The JS131 is therefore an ideal solution for rental companies, offering plenty of performance with much lower maintenance requirements.
There’s a wide range of JCB attachments available to make the JS131 even more versatile, enabling you to carry out a wide range of tasks.
JCB’s quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy, and is purpose-designed for the JS range. For ultimate versatility, JCB offers a full list of auxiliary pipework options including hammer, auxiliary, merged and low flow.
With a massive 91.9kN bucket tearout and fast cycle times, this is an extremely productive tracked excavator in all applications.
Unlike all other T4F tracked excavators, the JCB JS131 meets regulations without any DPF, SCR or AdBlue to worry about.
JCB’s In-Cab Monitor checks engine oil levels, coolant, and system errors on start-up. The filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel), are centrally located for fast, easy servicing.
By using graphite impregnated bronze bushes on the JS131 excavator, we've increased boom and dipper greasing intervals to 1,000 hours for normal applications.
Our innovative recalibration option allows EcoMAX to run on lower grade fuels. This means the JS131 can be resold across different territories, which improves residuals.
Maximum Bucket Capacity 0.85 m3
Maximum Engine Power 55 kW
Operating Weight 14038 kg
The JS131 excavator’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piece wrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.
JCB JS131s boast the best components in the industry, including Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps, Kayaba valve blocks and JCB EcoMAX engines.
The high-strength undercarriage uses a fully welded X frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications.
A closed box section revolving frame increases strength and reduces stress. It’s also highly resistant to impact damage. The JS131’s high-strength rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.
