The JCB JS360 weighs in at 36 tonnes and represents a new size of excavators range, fitting perfectly between the heavy tracked excavators. Engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort and safety, JS360 is easy to maintain and cost effective. Comes with a closed box section revolving frame to increase strength and reduces stress. It also makes these tracked excavators highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used strong parts too – premium industry standards in fact. Meanwhile, this tracked excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu 161 kW 6HK unit, compliant with Stage 3b and Tier 4i. The benefits of the JS360 series of tracked excavators ensure optimum durability and reliability.
Before you buy tracked excavators, you need to know they’re going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of it. Fortunately, with a JCB JS360, 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 JS360’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 JS360 tracked excavators 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. The turret on JS360 tracked excavators is then welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.
It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS360 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both. Our Tier 4 Interim compliant Isuzu engine has a high power rating – 161 kW – that’s 25% more than our outgoing model. Yet, because it produces high torque (27% more than the outgoing model) at low revs, it’s very efficient too. A massive 155kn bucket tearout makes our JS360 tracked excavators up to 12% more productive than the closest competitors, and the special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy. Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow operators of these 360 excavators to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.
We’ve designed JCB JS360 tracked excavators to be comfortable, safe, ergonomic, simple and intuitive to operate. Which is good for operators of 360 excavators but even better for you; after all, great ease of use equals great productivity. Cushioned boom and dipper ends prevent shock loadings, protect your machine and increase operator comfort, while 6 viscous rubber mounts minimise noise and vibration. A 70/30 front screen split for a clear view of the front right track, plus a large laminated glass roof window provide this 360 excavator with exceptional all-round visibility. To keep everything under control, JCB JS360 tracked excavators have a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking. Function switches are easy to reach and include the heater and climate control panels, while the side unit doubles as part of the immobiliser code selector.
We’ve designed JCB JS360 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 JS360 tracked excavators 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, the JS360 tracked excavator’s engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily.
