JCB’S 85Z-1 Zero Tail-Swing Excavator
Fuel-Efficient Compact Excavator
JCB’s 85Z-1 zero tail-swing excavator offers a new look for JCB compact excavators. The 85Z-1 includes a revised Hdesign undercarriage, robust steel body panels, a spacious operator environment and Tier 4 Final engine that delivers increased efficiency and lower operating costs.
The machine features a sturdy kingpost design with widely-spaced bearings to prevent wear. In addition, the excavator uses a new graphite-based pin and bush design delivering 500-hour greasing intervals, for reduced daily maintenance and lower operating costs. The machine will also be available from the factory with an installed roto/tilt function ready for use with a number of rotating and tilting bucket mount systems. The digging equipment has individual hydraulic piping for easy maintenance and hose replacement. Twin auxiliary circuits will be available and operators will be able to program individual hydraulic flow settings for attachments through the in-cab monitor, making it easier and faster to change between powered attachments such as breakers and grabs.
