    JCB 8026 CTS overview

    • JCB 8026 CTS features overview

      Higher, further, deeper
      1 Our Maxi-Lift dozer handle allows extra lifting height even when the dipper is in maximum reach. It also offers excellent load hold performance. 2 82% better lifting capacity over the tracks (at maximum reach @ ground level) compared to the ZTS due to the repositioning center of gravity and extra 470mm tailswing
    • Engine / Driveline and transmission

      Power, performance and stability
      6 stands at the heart of the 8026 an 18th 4kw (gross) Tier iii engine with high torque of 96kn at 1800rpm for ultimate power and efficiency. 7 a solid, stable work platform improves productivity, versatility and operator confidence. 7 Impressive bucket and dipper crack performance (23kn or 17kn respectively) coupled with fast cycle times resulting in more done, faster results. 7 Superior boom geometry and field elevation provide improved ground retention and the ability to dig right through to dozer.
    • Hydraulics

      8 a new hand-guided tool circuit option means that the 8026 can supply a wide range of JCB hydraulic tools; from breakers and drills to pumps and cutters. 9 26% more auxiliary flow than the competition provides ultimate attachment performance. 10 The bucket-to-grab changeover capability switches oil flow from bucket cylinder to an additional set of quick change auxiliary connectors, extending its versatility to specialized attachments such as hanging rotating grapples. Productivity reaches new heights 8026 cts mini excavators
    • Environment

      Comfort and visibility
      4 Large lockable toolbox provides an uncluttered free working area. 2 Our electro proportional auxiliary thumb control option on the right joystick puts precision control of hydraulic attachments at your fingertips. 3 The new hydraulic system results in smooth, controlled, precise and balanced operation of excavator functions via low effort servo joysticks. 5 Large spacious operating environment with 50mm extra legroom compared to ZTS models. 5 Foldable tracking pedals keep the floor panel clutter-free simplifying cab cleaning and access. 6 Large glass surfaces and a low engine hood profile give excellent all round visibility, including the front right track.
    • Tyres / Tracks

      High-strength undercarriage
      1 The high quality 250mm wide tracks on the 8026 with locking links perform in the toughest applications. 2 High-strength track legs feature three-piece manufacturing to maximize rigidity and improve track retention. Tamped edges reduce abrasion response, making it easier to clean undercarriage.The 8026's open rail frame design also prevents buildup of loot. 3 Our new undercarriage features a top mounted roller improving travel track resistance. 4 box section dozer arms provide ultimate strength and robustness for all dozer tasks.
