Building on 50 years of expertise, JCB’s new generation 65R are the strongest, most high-performance mini excavators in the 6-tonne class that we’ve ever built.
It has been painstakingly developed in direct response to our customers’ needs and, as such, they feature performance, versatility and productivity by the bucketload. The JCB mini excavators also offer you low cost of ownership, superior ergonomics, rigorous safety features, and easy servicing.
So if you’re in the market for a 6-tonne excavator, you’ll find this new generation is in a 6-tonne class of its own.
JCB’s 6-tonne excavator cab is now even more spacious, with storage galore, a phone tray, stowage net and a cup holder. The whole area is accessed easily and safely via a large door.
The 65R mini excavator is fitted with a radio, 12V phone charger, powerful heater with window de-mister and a high performing air conditioning system with 9 vents.
Rubber mounts have been deployed to isolate the hydraulic valve block from the chassis on these midi excavators. This reduces in-cab noise and vibration, yet the valve block itself is still easy to access beneath a side-opening bonnet.
You can alternate quickly between single and double-acting auxiliary flow thanks to a convenient switch in the cab. Switch between 10 different rates on the electro proportional high flow line for seamless operation of a huge variety of attachments.
Fully adjustable suspension seating provides great operator comfort; our heated air suspension option, meanwhile, has independent adjustable positions for the ultimate in ergonomics. Our switches are intuitively laid out around an informative colour LCD display with optional reversing camera.
Operators can be assured of smooth and precise grading with our standard-fit electro-hydraulic dozer control. To reduce vibration and noise – and offer the smoothest ride – the JCB 65R’s short pitched tracks engage every tooth on the sprocket.
JCB 65R mini excavator cab is fully ROPS and TOPS-compliant. Optional boom and cab worklight guards offer protection during hazardous applications; likewise optional boom, dozer and dipper hose burst check valves (HBCVs).
All hydraulic functions on these JCB excavators can be fully isolated with JCB’s safety lever lock, thus preventing unintended movement. With JCB’s unique 2GO system, the hydraulics can only be operated in a safe lockable position via two separate inputs.
The JCB 65R offers greater visibility than our outgoing 6-tonne diggers, thanks in part to a 70/30 front screen split that provides a clear view of the front right track for easy, safe trench digging and manoeuvring.
An RTS compact excavator significantly reduces impact risk in tight workspaces. Whichever digger you choose, the cab door sits within the counterweight length when folded back, conveniently protecting itself from damage during operation.
Large track frame width and a low centre of gravity helps to ensure that stability on both of these JCB diggers is best-in-class.
Damage can occur on site so we’ve fitted flat side glass windows to the 65R excavators to minimise replacement costs.
Graphite impregnated bronze bushes have enabled us to make greasing intervals at the dozer and dig ends of these 6-tonne JCB excavators a best-in-class 500 hours, saving you time and money.
Filling your JCB 65R’s fuel tank from ground level is easy with our wide opening steel bonnet and external diesel indicator. JCB’s optional refuelling pump with auto stop function can reduce fuel spillage and increase safety.
The JCB 65R mini excavtors boasts the best SAE service rating on the market, with innovative features like a 30-degree tilting cab (requiring no special tools to operate) making life easier.
These JCB excavators feature colour-coded hydraulic hoses for easy identification. Dozer hoses are easy to replace because they terminate at the bulkhead.
Cleaning is straightforward inside and out on a 65r or 67c mini digger; the sealed idler tension unit and open frame undercarriage design with sloping track legs prevent material build-up, while the two-piece floor mat is easily removable.
A large inspection cover permits easy access to key components like the rotary joint, slew bearing, removable side skirts and in-fill panel. Lifting your digger is made easier by the tapered dozer lift points behind the edge of the blade.
