X Series

Over a four-year-long development phase, JCB have applied a programme of product testing to achieve increased levels of quality and dependability for our customers. All details of this machine have been examined and perfected to ensure maximum endurance and safety for all users, including opening and closing the cab door over 10,000 times to assess durability!

JCB X Series 220x Tracked Excavator

With a 100mm longer structure, the cab in the 220X has an entirely new layout which will be used consistently across the X series range. The booth incorporates the ROPS frame within and has flat glazing all around. The noise level has been lowered inside the operator's cab by a total of 5dB from previous generations and provided an additional hour meter outside of the cab.

The foot pedals, footrests and tracking levers have been redesigned, and all controls on the 220X have been ergonomically devised to be operator-focused. Within the cab, there is a command pod which brings all switches and controls together in one, easily-accessible space. Our customers will also notice higher quality paint finishes as the designers have eliminated any sharp edges in the steel work.

The 220X series is built to work efficiently and profitably, these excavators have a structure that is now 2.7m wide and 200mm broader than its predecessors. This added space has allowed the main boom to exist in the centre of the machine as opposed to an offset which improves accuracy and reduces strain on the slew bearing.

The handrails are now bolted in place and can be quickly repaired. All tanks are now mounted inside the bodywork of the machine to reduce the risk of damage. On the left of the body, there is an air inlet in just one access door which helps to cut out external noise levels. Additionally, there is ground level access to the heating and ventilation system filter.

Increased Efficiency

The diameter of the main hydraulic hose to and from the main valve has increased which helps to provide further flow without increasing the speed of oil which results in increasing the longevity of the hose's life. The boom and arm of the 220X have remained unchanged in comparison to previous models. However, we do offer the option of boom float with two modes which make grading more manageable and reduces stress on the operator.
