Efficiency, emissions in mind for upgraded excavator

{{image3-a:r-w:300}}JCB CEA national excavator product manager Deon Cope said that the machine calls upon JCB’s sound manufacturing reputation to give it inimitable strength in its class. “The JS300 incorporates the tried and true elements of other JCB models to create a superstructure that comes with all the improvements and benefits of our larger range, but in a more compact body,” Cope said.

The hydraulic tank on the new JS300 has a maximum sight gauge capacity of 238 litres – an increase of 40 per cent – that allows the machine to work in the most extreme conditions and temperatures.

“This machine has been built with Australian conditions in mind,” Cope said. “It can withstand the hottest and harshest environments, and reach peak performance when faced with demanding jobs.”

The body is equipped with a house frame, service bay doors and latches that add longevity and durability, and give longer life to all machine components. The box section side frames add strength to help localise any external forces from damaging the product.

The key components of larger JCB excavators have been used in building this new model, including a JCB Dieselmax 672 engine, a 590-litre fuel tank and an increased hydraulic tank capacity.

“These new components all come together to create a machine that is strong and versatile. This machine truly is an all-rounder, making it an ideal fit for the owner/operator or for rental,” Cope said.

Thanks to the JCB Dieselmax 672 engine, the JS300 excavator offers increased fuel efficiency and a fuel consumption reduction of up to 10 litres per hour, compared to the externally sourced Japanese engines used in earlier models. The 590-litre fuel tank delivers a 4.6 per cent upgrade over its predecessor to allow longer run times without stopping to refuel.

“One of the best ways to get the most value from your machines is through fuel economy,” Cope explained. “It significantly increases your service intervals and reduces down time so you can get jobs done faster and more efficiently.”
