A Great Business Decision
The JCB JS175W wheeled excavator weighs in at around 17.5 tonnes. It’s engineered 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 this excavator highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used strong parts too – premium industry standards in fact.
Meanwhile, this excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu engine. The benefits of the JS175W wheeled excavators don’t end there either.
Before you buy a wheeled excavator, you need to know it’s going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of it. Fortunately, with a JCB JS175W, strength and durability come as standard.
We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make this excavator last longer. A JCB JS175W’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.
The high-strength undercarriage of JS175W 17.5 tonne wheeled excavators is of a fully enclosed, fully-welded box section for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.
The turret on a JS175W wheeled excavator is then welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.
We’ve designed the JCB JS175W wheeled excavator to be low maintenance and easily serviceable. Which makes it affordable, efficient and highly productive.
Bonnets open and close easily with gas-assisted cylinders, and the 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 this excavator. Grease points are centralised on a JS175W 17.5 tonne excavator too, for safe and easy access to high level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).
Because they’re mounted side by side, JS175W wheeled excavators’ engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily.
It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that a JCB JS175W wheeled excavator is designed to make the most of both.
Our Stage 3B/Tier 4i compliant 129 kW EcoMAX engine produces high torque at low revs for great efficiency.
A 105kN bucket tearout makes the JS175W excavator highly productive, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.
Simultaneous moving and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow operators of JS175W wheeled excavators to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.
