The JS130 13 tonne excavator’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piece wrapper plates and internal baffle plates to ensure extended life and maximum durability.

The JS130 excavator boasts the best components in the industry, including Berco running gear, Kawasaki pumps and Kayaba valve blocks.

The high-strength undercarriage uses a fully welded X frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications.

A closed box-section revolving frame increases strength, reduces stress, and is highly resistant to impact damage. The 13 tonne excavator’s high-strength rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.


The JS130 excavator bonnet opens front-to-rear for easy and safe engine service access.

The cab can be specified with Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) and Falling Objects Protection Structure (FOPS).

JCB 13 tonne excavators have a large glass area and low bonnet line for superb visibility.

JCB’s 2GO system fully isolates hydraulic functions to avoid unintended machine movements.

There’s no need to climb onto the JS130 excavator to check oil levels; all routine servicing can be done from ground level.

JCB’s Safety Level Lock fully isolates hydraulic functions to avoid unintended movements. Our New Start function means a JCB 13 tonne excavator can only be started in a safe locked position via two separate inputs.


By using graphite impregnated bronze bushes on the JS130 excavator, we’ve increased boom and dipper greasing intervals to 1,000 hours for normal applications.

JCB’s In-Cab Monitor checks engine oil levels, coolant, and system errors on start-up.

Our innovative recalibration option allows EcoMAX to run on lower grade fuels. This means the JCB 13 tonne excavator can be resold across different territories, which improves residuals.


JCB JS130 excavators 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.

Because it doesn’t require bulky after-treatment like DPF, the new compact EcoMAX T4F engine can be housed under an innovative low-level bonnet, providing excellent rearward visibility.

For tremendous speed and control, a JCB 13 tonne excavator has a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking. Auxiliary options can also be specified with proportional control options for even more smoothness and precision.

An easy-to-read 3.5” colour multi-function display provides instant operational information, and has customisable home screens.

JCB’s 13 tonne excavator 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, any time.


There’s a wide range of JCB attachments available to make the JS130 excavator even more versatile enabling you to carry out a wide range of tasks.

JCB’s quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy, and is purpose-designed for the JS excavator range.

For ultra versatility, JCB offers a full list of auxiliary pipework options including hammer, auxiliary, merged and low flow.

With a massive 92kn bucket tearout and fast cycle times, the JS130 excavator is extremely productive in all applications.

JCB’s innovative hydraulic regeneration system means oil is recycled across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption.
