JCB released the JCB 8018 contractor specification compact excavator model to provide contractors with a compact excavator designed to work on busy urban job sites.

Model features include:

  • 500-hour extended greasing intervals;
  • Electrical proportional auxiliaries;
  • LED work lights with additional guarding;
  • Additional counterweight protection;
  • Hand-held tool circuit; and
  • Street-pad dozer blade protection.

All excavator arm and undercarriage bushes are now equipped with graphite-impregnated bushes, delivering 500-hour greasing intervals. Additionally, LED work lights are fitted to the front of the machine and to the boom with additional protective guards to prevent damage.

The auxiliaries have been updated to an electrical operation. The thumb-operated switch enables proportional control of the auxiliary flows, the company said.

The machine comes standard with rubber street pads on the dozer blade to prevent damage to roadways while working. These can be removed without tools and stored in the cab’s toolbox. The JCB 8018 Contractor specification can be ordered with a full operator’s cab or canopy.

High-visibility decals enhance the appearance of the excavator while improving safety on urban job sites and when working in low light conditions. Built-in tie-down points on the rear side of the upper structure and kingpost further improve safety when transporting the machine on a trailer.

The JCB 8018 contractor specification model incorporates a separate hand-held tool circuit, as well as standard auxiliary hoses on the boom. The hand-held circuit provides hydraulic power to drive a range of tools, including hand-held breakers, cut-off saws and water pumps.
