The JCB JS240 is the 24 tonne model in our heavy tracked excavators range. It’s 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 24tonne excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu 147 kW 4HK unit, compliant engine. It provides a fuel saving of up to 10% over our outgoing models. The benefits of the JS240 series of tracked excavators don’t end there either.
JCB tracked excavators are highly efficient machines. High power fuel efficient and compliant, Isuzu engines deliver fuel savings due to high torque production at low revs. Huge bucket tearout also makes our 360 excavators highly efficient on-site. Take into account too that JCB tracked excavators have long servicing intervals and rugged parts, and you begin to see just how efficient our machines are.
We’ve designed JCBJS240 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 dipperends 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 24 tonne excavator with exceptional all-round visibility
To keep everything under control, JCBJS240 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 sideunit doubles as part of the immobiliser code selector.
A comfortable favourite
We’ve designed JCB JS240 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 a JS240 24 tonne excavator 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 JS240 tracked excavator’s engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily.
