JS220 Tracked Excavator 

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 22 ton excavator is powered by a highly efficient JCB EcoMAX Tier 4 Final compliant engine which provides superb reliability and productivity. The benefits of the JS220 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 it. Fortunately, with a JCB JS220, 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 JS220’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 JS220 22 ton 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.

The turret on JS220 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 JS220 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.

Our Tier 4 Final compliant EcoMax engine has a high power rating of 173 hp (129 kW); yet, because it produces high torque at low revs, it’s very efficient too.

A massive 33,510 lbf (149kn) bucket tearout makes the JS220 excavator highly productive, and the JCB 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 a JS220 20 ton excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimized settings.

Maximum productivity, minimum spend
  • JCB’s tracked excavators use hydraulic regeneration to recycle oil across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Auto-idle technology automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use.


We’ve designed the JCB JS220 tracked excavator 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.

Safety and comfort features include:
  • Cushioned boom and dipperends
  • 70/30 front split screen
  • Balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking
  • JCB JS220s have spacious storage behind the operator’s seat.
  • A new SMART controller keeps tabs on functions and inputs during different working modes.
  • A large floor area with large high grip pedals gives easy and precise tracking.
  • Demist/defrost keeps a JS220 front window clear.
