A Great Business Decision
The JCB JS240 is the 24 tonne model in our heavy tracked excavators range. 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 these excavators highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used strong parts too – premium industry standards in fact.
Meanwhile, this 24 tonne excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu 140 kW unit, compliant with Stage 3b and Tier 4i. It provides a fuel saving of up to 8% over our outgoing models. The benefits of the JS240 series of tracked excavators don’t end there either.
Before you buy tracked excavators, you need to know they’re going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of them. Fortunately, with a JCB JS240, strength and durability come as standard.
We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make these 360 excavators last longer. A JCB JS240’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piecewrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.
The high-strength undercarriage of a JS240 24 tonne excavator is of a fully-welded X-frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.
It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS240 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.
Our Tier 4 interim compliant Isuzu engine has ahigh power rating (140 kW); yet, because it produces high torque at low revs, it’s very efficient too.
A massive 192kn bucket tearout makes our JS240 360 excavators up to 15% more productive than the closestcompetitors. Better still, a dipper tearout of 179 kN is up to 39% greater than the competition. The special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.
We’ve designed JCB JS240 tracked excavators to be low maintenance and easily serviceable. Which makes them 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 these 360 excavators. Grease points are centralised on a JS240 24 tonne excavator too, for safe and easy access to high level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).
