Designed and developed using our Efficient Design philosophy, the JS145 is an 14.5-tonne tracked excavator that’s equipped with a host of efficiency, performance, comfort and safety innovations. Like our new award-winning EcoMAX T4i engine, which meets Stage IIIB/Tier 4i legislation without using bulky DPF or SCR. In turn, this means you can expect countless everyday benefits to using the JS145 tracked excavator – like great visibility, low running costs and more uptime.
Features & Benefits
The JS145’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piece wrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.
JCB JS145s boast the best components in the industry, including Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba hand control valves.
Our EcoMAX T4i/Stage 3B engine has been tested for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments to ensure durability.
There’s a wide range of attachments available (compatible with JCB’s quickhitch system) to make the JS145 even more versatile. This includes lifting, excavating, grading, unloading, multi and, of course, versatility attachments.
JCB JS145s have excellent front visibility, with a 70/30 front screen split and a clear view of the front right track for easy, safe trench digging and manoeuvring.
Speed and control
For tremendous speed and control, a JCB JS145 has a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking. It can also be specified with proportional auxiliary control options for even more smoothness and precision.
By using graphite impregnated bronze bushes on the JS145, we’ve increased boom and dipper greasing intervals to 1000 hours for normal applications.
Our innovative recalibration option allows EcoMAX to run on lower grade fuels. This means the JS145 can be resold across different territories, which improves residuals.
JCB JS145 cabs use 6 viscous rubber mounts to minimise noise and vibration. This creates a quieter working environment, inside and out, meaning you can use the machine at any location, at any time.
