Taking mini excavators to the max
Tracked excavators have been a part of the JCB manufacturing family for over 50 years. Using over 50 years of experience and insight, JCBs latest mini diggers like the new 55Z-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 is highly productive, innovative, compact, agile and economical to own. Furthermore it is very safe to operate and easy to service.
On this mini digger load-sensing hydraulics are standard-fit. This innovative feature means that your hydraulics only consume power on demand, while conserving fuel for when you need it most.
The zero tailswing JCB 55Z-1 mini digger is incredibly manoeuvrable even in the most confined spaces as there is no rear overhang outside the footprint of the tracks.
Tracking performance is smooth and precise, to ensure high dozer capabilities and fast travel times. Our auto kickdown motors automatically adapt to changes in terrain, increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue.
With this excavator smooth, precise and balanced multi-functioning is easy, courtesy of a premium closed centre hydraulic system that provides improved flow sharing.
With the class-leading greasing intervals of 500 hours, you can expect minimal downtime. Furthermore the new monitor provides alerts on your excavator’s diagnostic status.
JCB’s Safety Lever Lock fully isolates this mini digger’s hydraulic functions to prevent unintended movement. Standard boom and optional worklight guards offer great protection for vulnerable components in hazardous applications.
To offer a long and trouble-free service life, the fully robot-welded high tensile steel boom and dipper is strengthened with internal baffle plates providing added structural strength for longlife durability. JCBs clean four-plate dipper design provides added structural strength and 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 55Z-1 mini digger has an even more spacious cab than before, providing storage galore, stowage net, a phone tray and a cup holder. The whole area is accessed easily and safely via a large door. The new deluxe fully adjustable suspension seating provides great comfort for excavator operators. The heated air suspension option has independent adjustable positions for the ultimate in ergonomics.
JCB mini excavators boast an innovative new rotary controller. 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. Thanks to a convenient switch in the cab you can alternate quickly between single and double-acting auxiliary flow.
with a built in memory to store your settings which can be easily retrieved between jobs, you can easily adjust and programme flow settings for specific attachments. 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 therefore 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.
