Ultimate productivity comes as standard on the new generation JCB 65R and 67C excavators. Build quality, performance, efficiency, comfort, safety and serviceability are all part of the package.

Building on 50 years of expertise, JCB’s new generation 65R and 67C are the strongest, most high-performance mini excavators the 6-tonne class that we’ve ever built.

They’ve been painstakingly developed in direct response to our customers’ needs and, as such, they feature performance, versatility and productivity by the bucketload. These JCB excavators also offer you low cost of ownership, superior ergonomics, rigorous safety features, and easy servicing.

So if you’re in the market for a 6-tonne mini, you’ll find this new generation is in a 6-tonne class of its own.

The JCB 65R excavator has a JCB Diesel by Kohler common rail Stage IIIB/Tier 4 final-compliant engine powers these latest 6-tonne machines. By using a DOC, turbocharger and intercooler, we’ve increased power to 38.4kW at just 2200rpm, and there’s also 300Nm of torque.

With a JCB 65R, tractive effort and 5km/h tracking speeds are class leading so high dozer capabilities and fast travel times are guaranteed. Our auto kickdown motors help to increase productivity and reduce operator fatigue by automatically adapting to changes in terrain.

A JCB 65R mini excavator offers superb spoil retention during truck loading courtesy of a huge 188° bucket rotation. For total versatility, you can specify your perfect dipper length, ranging from 1.65-2.0m.

2 dipper options are available for each machine; 1.65m for both models and the 1.9m for the 65R or 2m for the 67C giving increased performance and more versatility. A JCB mini excavator 2-piece boom offers close reach, high digging capacity and excellent dump reach.

Because you may want to operate many versatility-enhancing attachments, the 65R has twin auxiliary lines with both high and low hydraulic flows. These lines are proportionally operated via the electrics, with full adjustability for optimum attachment control.

In order to provide a winning balance of high performance and easy-clean low soil retention, we've completely overhauled our mini diggers’ dozer profile and angle. Tapered lift points are located behind the blade edge for their protection.

We've used a simplified H-frame construction and finite element analysis to design the ultimate heavy-duty excavator structure. This chassis ensures that the JCB 65R combines durability with confidence-inspiring stability.

Constructed using four plates, our clean and elegant dipper design offers added structural strength. The boom and dipper is a fully welded unit, and made of high tensile strength steel. Internal baffle plates guarantee a long service life.

Maximum excavator arm protection is assured during all applications because the JCB 65R midi excavator has a heavy-duty boom cylinder guard, with the option of dipper and crowd ram guards too.

Our heavy-duty kingpost with durable re-bushable pivots is built to last. We also use it to safely route all excavator hoses. Hydraulic seals are the very latest O-ring face seal (ORFS) type, reducing the risk of leaks.

The 65R mini excavator benefits from truly premium components like the Perkins engines, Nachi and Bosch-Rexroth hydraulics, and Bridgestone tracks.

High quality rubber tracks with interlocking links help these JCB minis to perform anywhere. Optional 400mm/600mm steel tracks are pre-drilled for rubber pads, and you can also choose dedicated Bridgestone GeoGrip Road Liner Pads.

For stage 3A markets the 65R has a Perkins 404D-22 engine; a quiet 2.2 litre unit delivering 35.7kW at 2600rpm and reduced operating costs in a small efficient package.

Our Below Idle feature means that engine revs are reduced even further when the operator’s armrest is raised. Fuel economy and noise levels are thus reduced. You can programme Auto Idle to activate after your 65R controls have been inactive for any period between 2 and 30 seconds.

These 6-tonne JCB excavators boast load-sensing hydraulics that only consume power on demand so you save fuel for when you most need it.

Tailor performance to match any application with the 65R mini diggers’ two separate dig modes – ECO for maximum efficiency, and heavy for maximum productivity.

We've patented our near zero pressure return line circuit so you won’t find it anywhere else. In short, it offers added fuel efficiency because the hydraulic pump can start work without having to overcome a very high pressure.

We've achieved optimal dig end geometry on these JCB excavators by carefully matching the boom and dipper to each other. This superb balance helps you to operate with total ease in confined areas.

JCB’s 6-tonne excavator cab is now even more spacious, with storage galore, a phone tray, stowage net and a cup holder. The whole area is accessed easily and safely via a large door.

The 65R mini excavator is fitted with a radio, 12V phone charger, powerful heater with window de-mister and a high performing air conditioning system with 9 vents.

Rubber mounts have been deployed to isolate the hydraulic valve block from the chassis on these midi excavators. This reduces in-cab noise and vibration, yet the valve block itself is still easy to access beneath a side-opening bonnet.

You can alternate quickly between single and double-acting auxiliary flow thanks to a convenient switch in the cab. Switch between 10 different rates on the electro proportional high flow line for seamless operation of a huge variety of attachments.

Fully adjustable suspension seating provides great operator comfort; our heated air suspension option, meanwhile, has independent adjustable positions for the ultimate in ergonomics. Our switches are intuitively laid out around an informative colour LCD display with optional reversing camera.

Operators can be assured of smooth and precise grading with our standard-fit electro-hydraulic dozer control. To reduce vibration and noise – and offer the smoothest ride – the JCB 65R’s short pitched tracks engage every tooth on the sprocket.

Graphite impregnated bronze bushes have enabled us to make greasing intervals at the dozer and dig ends of these 6-tonne JCB excavators a best-in-class 500 hours, saving you time and money.

Filling your JCB 65R’s fuel tank from ground level is easy with our wide opening steel bonnet and external diesel indicator. JCB’s optional refuelling pump with auto stop function can reduce fuel spillage and increase safety.

The JCB 65R mini excavtor can boast the best SAE service rating on the market, with innovative features like a 30-degree tilting cab (requiring no special tools to operate) making life easier.

These JCB excavators feature colour-coded hydraulic hoses for easy identification. Dozer hoses are easy to replace because they terminate at the bulkhead.

Cleaning is straightforward inside and out on a 65R mini digger; the sealed idler tension unit and open frame undercarriage design with sloping track legs prevent material build-up, while the two-piece floor mat is easily removable.

A large inspection cover permits easy access to key components like the rotary joint, slew bearing, removable side skirts and in-fill panel. Lifting your digger is made easier by the tapered dozer lift points behind the edge of the blade.

JCB 65R mini excavator cabs are fully ROPS and TOPS-compliant. Optional boom and cab worklight guards offer protection during hazardous applications; likewise optional boom, dozer and dipper hose burst check valves (HBCVs).

All hydraulic functions on these JCB excavators can be fully isolated with JCB’s safety lever lock, thus preventing unintended movement. With JCB’s unique 2GO system, the hydraulics can only be operated in a safe lockable position via two separate inputs.

The JCB 65R offers greater visibility than our outgoing 6-tonne diggers, thanks in part to a 70/30 front screen split that provides a clear view of the front right track for easy, safe trench digging and manoeuvring.

An RTS compact excavator significantly reduces impact risk in tight workspaces. Whichever digger you choose, the cab door sits within the counterweight length when folded back, conveniently protecting itself from damage during operation.

Large track frame width and a low centre of gravity helps to ensure that stability on both of these JCB diggers is best-in-class.

Damage can occur on site so we've fitted flat side glass windows to the 65R excavator to minimise replacement costs.
