JCB - 90Z and 100c Excavators

With build quality, power, efficiency, comfort, safety and serviceability in abundance, the new generation JCB 90z and 100c excavators are ready to provide ultimate productivity on any job.

Features & Benefits


A simplified H-frame construction and finite element analysis have helped us to create the ultimate heavy-duty compact excavator structure. The JCB 90z and 100c therefore combine durability with confidence-inspiring stability.

Structure Strength

The fully robot-welded high tensile steel boom and arm is strengthened with internal baffle plates to offer a long and trouble-free service life. For added structural strength, our clean and elegant arm design is constructed from just four plates.


At the heart of these new JCB 10 Metric Ton excavators is a JCB Diesel by Kohler common rail Tier 4 Final-compliant engine that’s fitted with a DOC, turbocharger and intercooler.


You get class-leading tractive effort and tracking speed (2.9 mph with a 90z and 2.7 mph with a 100c) ensuring comprehensive dozer capabilities and swift travel times.

Bucket rotation

There’s a huge 188° bucket rotation, which helps to provide great spoil retention during truck loading. Both the 90z and 100c midi digger can also be equipped with your choice of dipper length, from 5'5" to 7'5".


Fuel combustion in the 90z and 100c compact excavators’ JCB Diesel by Kohler engine is so clean that the unit doesn’t require a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This reduces servicing, increases uptime and improves fuel efficiency.


Load-sensing hydraulics only consume power on demand so these JCB excavators will conserve your fuel for when it’s needed most.

Dig modes

There are two separate dig modes (efficiency-boosting ECO or productivity-enhancing Heavy) on the 90z and 100c compact excavators, allowing you to tweak your performance for any job.


We’ve boosted overall space in our 10 Metric Ton excavator cabs. This means there’s plenty of storage, a cell phone tray, stowage nets and a cup holder. A large door provides easy safe cab access.


Our standard-fit fully adjustable suspension seat offers great comfort; the heated air suspension option boasts independent adjustable positions for maximum ergonomics.


A standard-fit ergonomic electro-hydraulic dozer control ensures smooth and precise grading, while short pitched tracks engage every tooth on the sprocket, helping to reduce vibration and noise whilst maintaining a very smooth ride on the JCB 90z.


Front screen guards can be specified, along with boom and cab worklight guards. Optional boom, dozer and arm hose burst check valves (HBCVs) make lifting operations even safer.


There’s a clear view of the front right track on both the JCB 90z and 100c compact excavators, courtesy of a 70/30 front screen split. This makes trench digging and maneuvering safer.


Key components like the rotary joint, swing cylinder, removable side skirts and in-fill panel are all easily accessed via the tilting cab. Tapered dozer lift points behind the blade edge makes it relatively easy to lift your excavator for transporting.
