    JCB 85z-1 8 Ton Zero Tail Swing Mini Digger Specifications

    The boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with internal baffle plates for long life durability and the four-plate dipper design provides added structural strength. The bodywork is made exclusively from pressed steel with no plastic, so it’s strong and easy to repair.

    The new 8T range has a JCB Diesel by Kohler common rail Stage IIIB/Tier 4 final compliant engine. This boasts DOC, turbocharger and intercooler.

    Power is increased to 48kW at just 2200rpm, and there’s 300Nm of torque. This engine doesn’t need a diesel particulate filter (DPF), reducing servicing, increasing uptime and improving fuel efficiency.

    Tractive effort and 5kph tracking speeds are class leading, ensuring high dozer capabilities and fast travel times. To increase productivity our auto kickdown motors automatically adapt to changes in terrain increasing productivity and reducing operator fatigue.


    Innovative hydraulics.

    A premium closed centre pump and valve provides improved flow sharing for smooth, precise and balanced operation during multifunctioning.
    Versatility is part of the package: our twin auxiliary lines generate both high and low hydraulic flows for an array of attachments.

    Dozer design

    The new dozer profile and angle provides high performance with easy-clean low soil retention. Tapered lift points are positioned behind the edge of the blade, providing excellent protection.
    We offer a dozer blade float option which enables easier ground levelling and efficient site clean up. Along with an angled dozer blade to speed up trench backfilling.

    At the dig end

    Bucket rotation is a huge 188°, offering great spoil retention during truck loading. Choose a dipper length to suit your application – from 1.65-2.25m, providing total versatility.
    Our boom and dipper are perfectly matched, creating optimal dig end geometry. This makes it easier to work and load in confined areas.

    All-day comfortable cab

    To ensure all-day operator comfort, there’s fully adjustable suspension seating with an optional heated air suspension seat with independent adjustable positions. Switches are ergonomically laid out around a crystal clear informative colour LCD display with optional reversing camera.

    JCB 85Z-1 Operators Manual & User Manuals are available as well as full specification brochure
