The JCB 8025 series of mini excavators have the same features associated with full sized tailswing excavators, but without the safety risks associated with tail swing. The 8025 series has a 2806kg / 2833kg operating weight, and can be easily transported between work sites with inexpensive and easily obtained forms of transportation. The unit is equipped with a Perkins 3-cylinder 20.9 kW engine that is firmly mounted to the sturdy undercarriage, which permits optimal performance levels without increased safety risks. The unit's dozer blades and undercarriage have been specifically crafted to prevent the build up of debris beneath and in front of the machine. The two speed motor can reach tracking speeds of up to 4.3 kph, and also promotes improved traction. Single action auxiliary pipework is an additional standard feature, and the unit has sturdy tie down points for convenient and safe transport of the unit.
