Cab w/ heat & air, suspension seat, dual pattern control, 16" tracks, dozer blade, frt & rear worklights, 24" bucket, warranty

The JCB 8045 ZTS mini excavator weighs 10,472 pounds (4,750 kg) and is powered by a Perkins 45-horsepower (34 kW) engine, making it one of the most powerful machines in its class.

That power is translated into superb digging and tracking performance by a load-sensed hydraulic system, providing big breakout forces, high tractive effort and impressive tracking speeds.

This JCB mini digger achieves its high performance because good weight distribution makes it very stable and the X-frame undercarriage dimensions make maneuvering easy. The 8045 ZTS compact excavator also boasts a smooth ride and excellent tractive effort. Two-speed track motors provide high tracking speeds and a curved dozer profile prevents material build-up.

The 8045 ZTS mini excavator is rounded off by single-acting auxiliary pipework on the dipper for powering breaker attachments.

Standard Features

Durability and Serviceability
 In direct response to customer demands, the JCB 8045 ZTS mini excavator boasts unrivaled service access and long 500-hour service intervals.  
 You can check the oil from ground level, and the fuel filter system features a combined sedimenter, filter and primer which allows you to prime the system if it runs out of fuel. You can change the filter without any extra tools and, under the rear cover, a large capacity molded fuel tank means longer working hours and greater productivity.  
 The 8045 ZTS compact excavator has side-by-side engine and hydraulic oil cooling packs for easy cleaning, and color-coded hydraulic hoses meet under the cab floor for simple access.  
Productivity and Control
 On the 8045 ZTS, a changeover button on the joystick lets you switch the right pedal between auxiliary service and boom offset function. In boom offset mode, you can operate the slew of the upper structure and the boom at the same time, allowing you to get this JCB mini digger into the correct position straight away. Plus this foot pedal is servo operated for low-effort, precise control.  
 What’s more, the 8045 ZTS compact excavator comes with auto-idle as standard. That means that the machine automatically starts in idle mode and automatically switches to idle when stationary, protecting the engine and the operator. The feature can easily be disabled too.  
 The 8045 ZTS mini excavator’s load-sensed flow-on-demand hydraulic system automatically controls flow and pressure, saving fuel.  
    Excellent all-round visibility  
    Entire left track easily visible  
    Curving hood line gives good right and rear visibility  
    Hoses mounted on top of boom  
 Zero tailswing mini excavator cabs are traditionally cramped workplaces. However, JCB’s range is unique in offering a spacious, comfortable operator environment.  
 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.  
 The seating position is fully adjustable and, when you adjust the seat, the control pod adjusts too (although the two can be adjusted independently). There’s also a heater as standard.  
 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 8040 ZTS compact excavator is a comfortable favorite.
