JCB 48Z-1

Taking mini excavators to the max

Using the experience and insight of more than 50 years, JCBs latest mini diggers like the new 48Z-1 have been developed to exceed even your most exacting demands.


Put simply, this is one of the strongest and highest performing mini excavators JCB has ever built. It’s highly productive, compact, agile, innovative and economical to own. Furthermore it’s very safe to operate and easy to service.

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 zero tailswing JCB 48Z-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. 


Bucket rotation is a huge 181˚, offering great spoil retention during truck loading. Choose a dipper length to suit your application – from 1.45-1.82m – providing total versatility.

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.


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.

The new JCB 48Z-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.
