The brand new JCB 8026 CTS mini excavator is JCB’s first-ever conventional tailswing machine in the current 2.5-3.5 tonne class. With a transport weight of 2.7tonnes, it’s one of the largest excavators you can tow behind a 3.5 tonne vehicle. It’s similar in many ways to the 8025, but it’s been uprated in key areas.
This JCB mini digger’s power is provided by the new Perkins 400 series Tier IIIa, a transverse 18.4 kW motor that delivers 96kN of torque at 1800 RPM. A tailswing of 470mm more than the 8025 ZTS, combined with a very low centre of gravity, provides a 19% greater lift capacity than the market leader.
Versatility-wise, you can easily attach hammers, compactor plates and more. A brand new undercarriage, meanwhile, uses 3 bottom rollers, 1 top roller, plus heavy duty track idler guides and grease tensioners.
