While JCB has manufactured heavy line excavators for over 25 years in the UK, primarily for the domestic and European markets, it was not until 2001 that it began to focus its considerable engineering and manufacturing expertise on this product line – culminating in the release of JS Auto in 2003.
Such is its reputation, in just three years the JS Auto range of excavators shot to No.1 in the UK market segment and is gaining favour rapidly in other European markets.

Major feature of the JS Auto
- Its increased operating speed brought about by faster hydraulic services that increase productivity significantly in a fully automatic mode from which the Series derives its name.
- Auto mode is an intelligent function which automatically senses hydraulic requirements and adjusts engine and hydraulic to meet the need – a bonus in terms of managing operating costs and fuel consumption.
