8020 CTS


The 8020 CTS is designed to provide the maximum possible productivity in the mini excavator sector. To do this, we’ve optimised durability, performance, comfort, ergonomics, ease of maintenance and safety.

Key Benefits

Well-protected hoses to minimise damage and downtime
Leading edge O-ring face sealing technology
Class-leading excavation performance, lift capacity, dig envelope and tearout
Powerful, torquey 14.2 kW engine
Large glass area and low bonnet profile for excellent visibility
Grouped daily service points and wide-opening service panels

If you’re looking for the ultimate mini excavator, look no further than the JCB 8020 CTS. It boasts best-in-class performance, allied to incredible build quality, superlative strength and unbeatable ease of operation.

We’ve used the very latest manufacturing and design processes to create this highly advanced conventional tailswing machine. As such, it boasts everything from a potent engine to a strong dozer blade, durable steel bushes, low weight and a new high-precision hydraulic valve block.

The 8020 CTS boasts class-leading excavation performance: 2.62m depth, 4.30m reach, 2.77m height. There’s also class-leading lift capacity and a class-leading digging envelope.

Tearout is a class-leading 16.3kN. Combined with fast cycle times, this allows you to do more work in less time.

Our new hydraulic valve block allows you to travel in a straight line at the same time as selecting excavator functions, increasing productivity.

Because the 8020 CTS weighs just 2067kg, it can be easily towed to wherever you need it.

A powerful new 14.2Kw engine produces high torque at low revs, providing ample power for even the most demanding tasks.

The short pitched tracks engage every tooth on the sprocket for less vibration and noise, and a far smoother ride.

A large glass area and low bonnet profile provide excellent all-round visibility, including to the front right-hand track. This means the 8020 CTS doesn’t need mirrors to meet EU regulations.

We’ve used a one-piece seat base; this reduces machine vibration and provides high levels of operator comfort.

Dozer extensions swing out easily, allowing operators to quickly and easily shift the dozer wings.

A two-speed tracking button on the dozer lever is easy and intuitive to use.

The 8020 CTS’ new hydraulic valve block results in smooth, controlled, precise and balanced operation of excavator functions.

By improving the cab tilt angle by 17%, we’ve increased service access still further (it was already best-in-class). This design eliminates the need for restrictive servicing hatches in the floor.

We’ve grouped all daily service points to make servicing quick and easy.

Wide-opening service access panels are supported with gas struts for excellent access to routine checks.

JCB’s impact protection front screen shields the operator from flying debris when using breakers.

The large door opening gives easy entry and exit.

The lower door is made from steel, averting costly glass breakages.

Our top-mounted boom ram is perfectly protected when loading lorries and skips.

The 8020 CTS uses the very latest sealing technology – O-ring face trapezoidal seal hydraulics minimise leaks.

To optimise durability and service life, we’ve fitted replaceable steel bushes to the kingpost, dipper nose and bucket tipping link. This also provides smooth and accurate operation.

The hydraulic hoses (including the auxiliary) are routed through the boom and dipper for ultimate damage protection.

Our latest low-wear steel bushes are highly durable and also reduce wear on pivot pins.

Adjustable wear pads on the track extensions provide a long service life and a firm, positive, quiet ride during tracking.

The high-strength box section dozer blade can withstand impacts from kerbs and man hole covers, while dozer blade hoses are protected by a steel plate.

All the hoses on the 8020 CTS’ undercarriage are recessed for maximum protection.

JCB’s state-of-the-art manufacturing processes achieve ultimate build quality, reliability, durability, service life and machine uptime. Our in-house paint process is a case in point, guaranteeing quality and lasting protection.
