The JZ140- Offering – Greater Safety Without Compromising On Productivity

by editor

The JCB JZ140 is an extremely productive reduced tails wing tracked excavator, designed to offer greater levels of safety than a conventional excavator thanks to its superior manoeuvrability, especially in restricted spaces.

The JCB JZ140 is a quality excavator that is also extremely efficient and innovative, featuring an EcoMAX engine and stateof- the-art hydraulics fitted. The cab and controls are incredibly intuitive, ergonomic and comfortable. The JZ140 is also easy to service and maintain.

A re-designed body with a compact counterweight and revised engine positioning sees the overall length of the excavator reduced by 29 per cent over conventional models of the same weight. The design has resulted in a greatly reduced tail-swing allowing easy manoeuvrability in confined spaces.

“The JZ140 is an extremely solid excavator within our product range”, said JCB CEA National Product Manager, Deon Cope.

“With reduced tail-swing we see zero compromise on dig performance and stability, making it a highly competitive product in the Australian market”, Deon added.

The JCB JZ140 has a 72kW JCB EcoMax engine, configured to US Tier 4i emissions standards. The engine has a five per cent improvement in fuel efficiency over the standard model. The engine’s position and the redesigned counterweight also give the machine a high degree of stability, as the centre of gravity is lowered. Stability is further enhanced by the excavator’s fully welded ‘X’ type frame.

The design of the ROPS/TOPS cab features wrap-around tinted windows and front, side and roof lights for maximum visibility. The cab is air-conditioned and has a fully-adjustable deluxe suspension seat with armrest adjustment and backrest decline. A 7-inch full colour monitor on the dash displays vital machine information.

The JZ140 is connected to JCB’s range of monitoring and productivity systems including the SMART system that provides the operator with engine oil and coolant information, allowing daily checks to be completed from within the cab. The machine is also connected to JCB’s LiveLink system, which allows management to monitor progress from off-site.
