JCB India’s Quality And Efficient Excavators

Mr. Deepak Shetty
Deputy CEO &
Managing Director,
JCB India Limited

With over 60 products in eight categories, JCB India is committed to being an infrastructure equipment partner for its customers. We have made significant investments in our excavator range. We have our intelligent NXT range in the 14 – 24.5T on category and our robust Quarry Master in the 14 to 38 ton category. They come with a choice of different power modes for a variety of excavation capacity requirements.

The 20T and 21T models save up to 32% fuel in the economy mode compared to the outgoing models and have a robust dig end and X-type frame. They are designed for arduous quarry jobs.

The new JCB 225QM has eight power modes, giving operators the flexibility to work in their desired mode in various applications. The machine is powered by the JCB ecoMAX engine, which produces 170 HP and provides a strong torque of 695 Nm. The model comes with reduced maintenance and a warranty of two years or 5,000 hours of operation. With a deep section boom design, improved hydraulic filtration, and heavy-duty track chain assembly, it is exceptionally durable; and the heavy-duty cab guards ensure more safety to the operator.

The JCB NXT range of excavators is designed for high productivity and fuel efficiency. The machines come with ten working modes and increased efficiency of up to 32% in Eco mode on the JCB NXT205 and JCB NXT215LC. The low maintenance excavator range comes with a standard warranty of 2 years or 5,000 hours. The deep section boom and hydraulic filtration features give the excavator range increased durability.

Our JCB NXT 245 HDLR (Long Reach) can dig up to a depth of 40 feet and reach up to 51 feet. Equipped with energy-saving JCB eco hydraulics, it stands out as an extremely fuel-efficient machine. Its strong X-type frame coupled with a pre-installed hose burst check valve for boom and arm make it one of the most robust and safe excavators. Further, ‘intellicontrol’, a Livelink-enabled solution, gives critical information on the equipment’s operations remotely.

JCB mini excavators are used for urban development projects that demand compact machines to work in restricted spaces. The range includes the 3T to 5T category in models such as 30 plus, 50z, 51R and 55z. The 50z and the 55z come with a zero tail swing design for higher performance and versatility when used in tight spaces. They also have a range of attachments like soil drills, rock breakers, etc. and customized mode selection, which allows the operator to choose from light, eco, heavy or heavy+ depending on the work.

With infrastructure being developed in many urban areas, our mini excavators can use space-constricted urban or semi-urban areas. They are apt in the areas of Urban Rejuvenation and Housing projects.

Customers today want utility and efficiency of the equipment without compromising on safety. Newer concepts like Telematics, IoT, Big Data Analytics, and Machine Learning can play a major role in meeting customer demands and increasing the sector’s efficiency. 

JCB India has been innovating continuously to create smarter machines that efficiently fulfil this demand. Our vision is to ensure that our customers get technologically advanced and innovative ‘Made-in-India’ products, thereby also contributing to making India a global manufacturing hub. Through this indigenous manufacturing of globally competitive products, we are also ensuring our support to the vision of ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan’. 

Smart machine management can be experienced in JCB machines through LiveLink – an advanced telematics technology that benefits in better fleet management through remote monitoring online. It helps users increase productivity, control costs and ensure asset safety. To date, approximately 1,60,000 LiveLink enabled JCB machines have been sold. These machines can be monitored for – security, operations and service (SOS) on mobile devices. 

Machines can be geo-fenced, time-fenced and can be located anywhere. Customers get to know about the machine’s health, fuel level, battery conditions, etc. – almost all critical parameters of the machine on their mobile device. It also gives out service reminders and the history of the machine.

We have pioneered the integration of digital technology in our ‘Intelli’ series of Construction Equipment. This has improved our machines’ productivity, reliability, and efficiency to ultimately benefit our customers with ease of operation and cost profitability.

Technology has been transforming the way Machine-to-Machine and Machine-to- Customer business is being done. All vital information about the machine is available to customers on their mobile devices through a web browser or the ‘Livelink’ mobile application. Additionally, the system also sends out alert SMSs to registered mobile numbers. 

LiveLink benefits customers in better fleet and fuel management by enabling remote monitoring and management of their machines. JCB LiveLink incorporates GPS, Telecommunications, Machine Electronics and IoT, enabling the equipment to remain in contact with the owner, dealer and JCB. 

Fuel efficiency, performance, and smart machine management can be experienced in these machines through LiveLink. Accurate monitoring of machine-hours and service alerts improve maintenance. Technical alerts and maintenance history data helps customers manage the health of the machine. Early warnings with detailed machine history enable users to plan work. LiveLink helps manage machine health to keep your machines running or maximum uptime and return on investment. 

LiveLink, can help lower servicing and running costs by ensuring machines are operated to their optimum performance, reducing fuel consumption and unnecessary machine wear. By monitoring idle time and real-time fuel consumption, LiveLink helps manage the whole life cost of ownership, driving down costs and driving up productivity. It helps keep machines safe and improves control over machine misuse. Alerts can be set up for when a machine is moved out of or into a predetermined zone, these geofences are customizable to the space required. 

JCB has also pioneered the integration of digital technology with its digital initiatives for customer support, which are an industry first, in its kind. The JCB genuine parts application enables customers to order parts of JCB products on their mobile. 

Further, an internal tool – Smart Serve has been developed to help dealerships support engineers to improve efficiency and productivity, thereby improving profitability. JCB India also provides the widest after-sales service to its customers through 700 outlets and over 60 dealers. Since these machines work in far-flung areas, well-connected product support must be offered to customers to minimize downtime and maximize productivity.

JCB uses state-of-the-art technology to provide the industry’s finest customer support for its customers. This facility develops exciting new technologies of the future and works on Global and Domestic projects. Thus JCB India, Innovates, Designs, Manufactures and Exports from India. 

With the government’s increased thrust on infrastructure, big-ticket infrastructure projects are coming to the fore. These demand the best quality output and work on tight timelines, thus creating a need for specialized, intelligent and technologically advanced construction equipment.
