The 64,595-pound JS290 Auto and 77,162-pound JS360 Auto will fill gaps in JCB’s JS Auto excavator range. The JS290 Auto will bridge the gap between the company’s JS260 Auto and JS330 Auto in the existing range, and the JS360 Auto will complete the range between the existing JS330 Auto and the JS460 Auto. Both new models feature a redesigned undercarriage, refined boom and dipper-arm layout, ground-level service access and increased cooling capacity. In addition, the new JS520 Auto is now the largest model in the JCB range, weighing in at 114,660 pounds.
