48Z-1 Compact Excavator
Tracked excavators have been a part of the JCB manufacturing family for over 50 years. Using all of this experience and insight, our latest mini diggers like the new 48Z-1 have been developed to exceed even your most exacting demands. Put simply, this is one of the strongest and highest performing mini excavators we’ve ever built.
It’s highly productive, compact, agile, innovative and economical to own. Not only that but it’s very safe to operate and easy to service too.
New generation control
The new JCB 48Z-1 compact excavator has an even more spacious cab than before, with storage galore, a phone tray, stowage net and a cup holder. The whole area is accessed easily and safely via a large door.
There’s a radio, 12V phone charger and powerful heater with window de-mister. A high performing air conditioning system* with 8 vents completes the picture.
JCB compact excavator boast an innovative new rotary controller and easy touch switches have been specially designed for easy operation. With ergonomic electro-hydraulic dozer control as standard, operators can achieve smooth and precise grading control.
You can alternate quickly between single and double-acting auxiliary flow thanks to a convenient switch in the cab.
New generation efficiency
Because damage sometimes happens on sites, we use flat glass windows throughout the new JCB 48Z-1 compact excavator, as well as 100% steel bodywork, minimizing possible replacement costs.
With our class-leading greasing intervals of 500 hours, you can expect minimal downtime. Better still, our new monitor provides alerts on your excavator’s diagnostic status.
Engine revs reduce when the operator’s armrest is raised, improving fuel economy and noise levels. There’s a One-Touch Idle feature that conserves fuel too. Programmable auto idle, meanwhile, can be activated when the controls have been inactive for a period.
