Operating Weight 4017lb (1822kg)
Maximum Dig Depth 10Ft 1In (3.075m)
Maximum Dump Height 9Ft 4In (2.846m)

If you’re looking for the ultimate mini excavator, look no further than the JCB 8018 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, an extending undercarriage, low weight and a new high-precision hydraulic valve block.

OVERVIEW:

UNDERLYING STRENGTH

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 8018 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.

QUALITY ABOVE ALL

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 8018 CTS uses the very latest sealing technology – O-ring face trapezoidal seal hydraulics minimize leaks.

To optimize 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.

BUILT FOR PRODUCTIVITY 

The 8018 CTS boasts class-leading excavation performance: 2.34m depth, 4.12m reach, 2.62m height. There’s also class-leading lift capacity and a class-leading digging envelope.

Tearout is a class-leading 16.2kN. 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 8018 CTS weighs just 1822kg, 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.

EASE OF OPERATION

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

The 8018 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.

COMFORTABLY, VISIBLY BETTER

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 hood profile provide excellent all-round visibility, including to the front right-hand track. This means the 8018 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.

EFFICIENCIES

JCB designs its mini excavators to be highly efficient. Clever weight distribution has minimized counterweighting for a less stressed engine. Productivity is also helped by the spacious, comfy cabs we’ve fitted. Easy maintenance and rugged components come as standard too, which helps efficiency.

JCB Compact Excavators 8029 CTS

JCB Excavator 8029CTS Specifications
Maximum Dip Depth 10Ft 0In (3050m)
Maximum Dump Height 10Ft 6.75In (3220m)

The brand new JCB 8029 CTS mini excavator is our first-ever conventional tailswing machine in the current 2.5-3.5 ton class. With a transport weight of 2.7 tons, it’s one of the largest excavators you can tow behind a 3.5 ton vehicle. It’s similar in many ways to our 8025, but it’s been uprated in key areas.

This JCB mini digger’s power is provided by the new Perkins 400 series Tier IIIa, a transverse 25hp (18kW)
motor that delivers 21581lbf (96kN) of torque at 1800rpm. A tailswing of 1ft 5in (470mm) more than the 8025 ZTS, combined with a very low center of gravity, provides a 19% greater lift capacity than the market leader.

At the 8029 CTS compact excavator’s dig end, our box-fabricated boom and dipper is capable of 8ft 9in (2.74m) dig depth, 15ft 6in (4.77m) reach and 10ft 5in (3.22m) dump height. Excellent bucket rotation and class-leading tear-out forces mean great productivity. Versatility-wise, you can easily attach hammers, compactor plates and more.

A brand new undercarriage, meanwhile, uses 3 bottom rollers, 1 top roller, plus heavy duty track idler guides and grease tensioners.

All of which is just the beginning of the JCB 8026 CTS mini excavator’s benefits.

OVERVIEW:

DURABILITY AND SERVICEABILITY

Just like our 8025, the new JCB 8029 CTS mini excavator is designed to meet customer demands for unrivaled service access and long 500-hour service intervals.

Externally, there’s now a robust black cast counterweight to protect the rear and we’ve lowered the turret height by 1.3in (35mm) for added stability.

We’ve also improved the tracks on the 8026 CTS JCB mini digger. 9.8in (250mm) Bridgestone short pitch tracks reduce noise and vibration, and are highly durable.

Single side grease points on the excavator arm pivot pins simplify greasing. Then there’s excellent access to the hydraulic valve block under the side-opening hood, plus we’ve used the latest O-ring face seals throughout this compact excavator’s hydraulic system for durability. The two gas assisted gull wing bonnets give excellent engine access.

PRODUCTIVITY AND CONTROL

On the 8029 CTS, there are Nachi auto kickdown motors for smoother operation when spin turning and dozing. Tracking speed and single speed tractive effort are therefore class-leading, at 3mph (5kph) (11% improved over the 8025) and 5624lb (25.02kN) respectively.

For lifting power to match, we’ve fitted a Maxi-lift dozer ram to this JCB mini digger. You can actually lift the front of the machine on the dozer even at engine tickover, at maximum reach with a 1697lb (770kg) load. This is unique to our machine.

The 8029 CTS compact excavator also features our new EV31 hydraulic valve block, which gives 4 major benefits. Longer spools mean smoother controllability; load hold capability is increased; multifunctioning can be carried out while straight line tracking; and there’s full control isolation over all hydraulic services.

To save fuel, the 8029 CTS uses a lower power version of the 8025’s engine (torque is equal) but, because of our other innovations, productivity is still class-leading. That represents a 8% efficiency gain.

COMFORT

Unusually for a mini excavator, there’s plenty of room in the 8029 CTS’ cab.

Access is easy via a wide door, and the door itself latches back within the tailswing so you can work with it open. To make access to this JCB mini digger even easier, the left control pod hinges up and there’s no left foot pedal to get in the way.

There’s more leg room, a further 1.9 in (50mm) of seat adjustment and improved cab storage over the 8025. Not only that but new rubber cab mounts reduce vibration, and internal noise is just 77 dBa.

The seating position is fully adjustable for maximum comfort and there’s an efficient heating system. You can effortlessly store the gas-strut-assisted upper front screen overhead, and the lower front screen can also be removed. Plus, the whole cab structure is isolated from the slew frame for minimum vibration.

In all, the JCB 8029 CTS compact excavator is a comfortable favorite.

EFFICIENCIES

The JCB 8029 CTS is an exceptionally efficient mini excavator. Up to 8% more efficient than our 8025 machine, with 19% greater lift capacity than the market leader, productivity is second to none. Especially with our new EV31 hydraulic block and an 11% faster tracking speed than the 8025.
