The JCB JS240 excavator is the 24 tonne model in JCB’s world renown heavy tracked excavators range. It’s engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.

This 24 tonne excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu 147 kW 4HK unit, compliant engine. It provides a fuel saving of up to 10% over our outgoing models. The benefits of the JS240 series of tracked excavators don’t end there either – a closed box section revolving frame increases strength and reduces stress. It also makes these excavators highly resistant to impact damage.

Available for sale, dry hire or rental throughout Newcastle, the Central Coast and the Hunter Valley.

It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS240LC tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.

Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow a JS240 excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.

A massive 192kn bucket tearout makes our JS240 360 excavators up to 15% more productive than the closestcompetitors. Better still, a dipper tearout of 179 kN is up to 39% greater than the competition. The special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.


JCB JS240 tracked excavators are designed to be low maintenance and easily serviceable – which makes them affordable, efficient and highly productive.

Bonnets open and close easily with gas-assisted cylinders, and the service bays are large and wide for easy access. 1000-hour boom and dipper greasing intervals and a 5000-hour oil life provide maximum uptime on these 360 excavators. Grease points are centralised on a JS240 24 tonne excavator too, for safe and easy access to high level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).

Because they’re mounted side by side, the JS240 tracked excavator’s engine radiator, hydraulic cooler and intercooler can be serviced individually and cleaned easily.


Before you buy tracked excavators, you need to know they’re going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of them. Fortunately, with a JCB JS240 excavator, strength and durability come as standard.

We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make these 360 excavators last longer. A JCB JS240’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piecewrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.

The high-strength undercarriage of a JS240 24 tonne excavator is of a fully-welded X-frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.

The turret on JS240 tracked excavators is then welded to both the upper and lower undercarriage frames, and stiff, durable doors provide further strength.


We’ve designed JCB JS240 tracked excavators to be comfortable, safe, ergonomic, simple and intuitive to operate. Which is good for operators of 360 excavators but even better for you; after all, great ease of use equals great productivity.

A 70/30 front screen split for a clear view of the front right track, plus a large laminated glass roof window provide this 24 tonne excavator with exceptional all-round visibility.

Cushioned boom and dipperends prevent shock loadings, protect your machine and increase operator comfort, while 6 viscous rubber mounts minimise noise and vibration.

To keep everything under control, JCB JS240 tracked excavators have a balanced slew and electronic/hydraulic controlled slew braking. Function switches are easy to reach and include the heater and climate control panels, while the side unit doubles as part of the immobiliser code selector.
