Excavator market of India
India is going to be a growth driver for the world in the coming decades, and much of this growth will come from Infrastructure development in the country. There are projects of significant national importance that are gaining encouraging momentum across the country. Large-scale Infrastructure development will require larger and more productive machines. Projects such as Bharatmala, Sagarmala, new Ports and Logistic Hubs will create greater opportunities for excavator manufacturers.

Ready for Government’s big Infrastructure push
We have launched three new excavators for Infrastructure, Mining, and Quarrying applications. These machines will be built at JCB India’s state-of-the-art factory in Pune and will be sold to customers not only in India but also in global markets. The new series known as the Premium Line consists of the JCBNXT 225LC M, JCB315LC HD and the JCB385LC. They are designed for arduous and tough Indian operating conditions in the most demanding of applications. They are capable of performing in large-scale earthwork applications, quarries, and mining applications.

JCB launches Next-Gen JCBNXT 225LC M

The next generation Intelligent JCBNXT 225LC M
The JCBNXT 225LC M is a 22.5-ton machine and has a heavy-duty dig-end for durability with high uptime and lower repair costs. The machine is powered by a Cummins 148hp, 626Nm torque engine with an inline fuel injection system. This robust fuel system significantly helps in ease of maintenance and repairs.

Enabled by Intellicontrol System, has 10 working modes, which can be selected depending on the type of application. EcoHydraulics and Intellicontrol system help in improving fuel economy and gives fuel savings of up to Rs. 1.7 lakhs per year. For faster completion of projects, the machine comes with a power boost feature and a 1.05 cu.m heavy-duty bucket with an increase of 5% in output and lift capacity.

The JCB NXT 225LC M is also low on maintenance as it has an extended service interval of 500 hours for engine oil and 5,000 hours for hydraulic oil. This is a next generation “Intelligent” machine that has “InelliControl and Advanced LiveLink 4” for ease of use along with remote monitoring and safety. Intellicontrol monitors the operations and maintenance parameters of the machine to ensure high uptime. It gives feedback on the performance in real time and helps operators make decisions based on scientific data. The machine has air-conditioning as standard for operator comfort.

Electric excavators & Minis
The JCB 19C-1E is the industry’s first fully electric excavator in India and is integral to JCB’s ‘Road to Zero’ initiative, a programme that we have been working on for the past few years. The machine has been tested extensively and has various built-in features that enhance safety and performance. With zero emissions and low noise, this new machine is ideal for Infrastructure development in urban areas and for indoor working.

JCB 19C-1E is a zero-emission machine and has four lithium-ion batteries that power the machine for a full day on a single charge. With a significant focus on safety and productivity, JCB’s 2GO system safely isolates all controls as a secondary safety system. It’s auto-idle and auto kick-up redistribute power to preserve battery life. The machine has been introduced after rigorous testing and validation.

In addition to the JCB 19C-1E Electric Mini Excavator, JCB also launched two more Mini Excavators, the 35Z HD and the 37C HD. Both machines come with heavy-duty structures and have easy manoeuvrability due to their compact size. The 5-ton Mini Excavator range which comprises the 50Z and the 55Z are designed for higher adaptability to work in confined areas, with high-strength heavy-duty booms, and excellent operator comfort features like full suspension seat, smooth joystick operations, and electronic engine speed control with mode selection.

Customer service & support at JCB
With Livelink, JCB’s advanced Telematics Technology gives live updates on the Service, Operations and Security of the Machines. Over 210,000 JCB machines are monitored in real-time with live updates being sent to customers and dealers. JCB India has over 60 dealers across India and over 6500 service engineers for product support.

In our history of being in India for over four decades, we have always innovated for the benefit of our customers. The JCB NXT 225LC M, for instance, is the result of the feedback that we received from our customers who wanted a robust fuel system. This machine is designed to work in demanding site conditions and deliver higher productivity and equipment uptime.
