55Z-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 compact excavators like the 55Z-1 have been developed to exceed even your most exacting demands. Put simply, this is one of the strongest and highest performing compact 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 JCB 55Z-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.
Our deluxe fully adjustable suspension seating provides great comfort for excavator operators; our heated air suspension option, meanwhile, has independent adjustable positions for the ultimate in ergonomics.
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.
New generation efficiency
Because damage sometimes happens on sites, we use flat glass windows throughout the new JCB 55Z-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.
