JS260, JS330, and JS360 crawler excavators are the first to move to Tier 4-Interim Isuzu engines. Revised electronic control system and advanced hydraulic technology that ensures the machine will always start in ECO mode, give the excavators a fuel savings of up to 11 percent over the predecessor machines. JCB has redesigned the machines with new engine compartments for increased cooling capacity. Two cab layouts are available: integral ROPS structure or bolt-on FOPS protection. Front upper corner of the cab has been moved forward to allow flat glass to be used in the front windshield. The window split has been lowered by 5 inches, to a 70:30 split, for improved visibility to the digging area. A revised rear storage moulding behind the operator’s seat gives access to a larger fuse compartment and provides the storage area for the front window lower section. The air vents at the rear of the cab have been relocated to increase storage space for the operator.
