The "XD" (Extra Duty) range of JCB excavators are specifically designed for harsh demolition type applications. These machines feature extra guarding, thicker structures and additional protection for the most severe conditions. "XD" configurations are available on the JS220, JS260 and JS330 models.
The dipper is specially reinforced, allowing it to handle the extra loads generated when using heavy duty grapples.
Strengthened bucket linkage and stronger tipping links help withstand the high forces generated when handling large crushers and hammers.
10 mm plate protects the entire underside of the mainframe while a hinged section allows easy engine servicing access.
To protect the superstructure and machine rear from damage when swinging, extra replacement buffers are fitted on its left-hand and right-hand sides, and all around the counterweight.
The reinforced central undercarriage belly guard protects the hydraulic lines in the center of the machine.
Heavy duty flush fitted covers safeguard the track motors from re-bar and all other debris.
All hoses and pipework run inside the undercarriage framework for total protection.
The engine air pre-cleaner removes many of the heavy dust particles found on demolition sites before they can reach the standard air filters helping reduce maintenance.
An optional merged pump facility in the hydraulic system allows high flow to be delivered to the dipper end for operation of larger hydraulic attachments. The combined pipework provides two-way flow for attachments such as cutters and crushers, and a one-way flow circuit for hammer operations.
Low flow auxiliary pipework is available as an option for controlled operation of rotational attachments.
The standard high output air conditioning and heater maintains operator comfort when doors and windows are closed.
6-way adjustable suspension seat as standard improves operator comfort and productivity.
The strong cab guard is FOPS tested which offers superb protection for the cab and operator from falling debris. Minimal obstruction from cab structures and the roof window ensures maximum forward and overhead visibility.
