The JCB 8029 CTS mini excavator is our first-ever conventional tailswing machine in the current 2.5 - 3.5 ton class.

This JCB mini digger’s power is provided by the Perkins 400 series Tier IIIa, a transverse 25 hp (18 kW) motor that delivers 21,581 ft. lbs. (96 kN) of torque at 1,800 rpm. A tailswing of 1 ft. 5 in.

At the 8029 CTS compact excavator’s dig end, our box-fabricated boom and dipper is capable of 8 ft. 9 in. (2.74 m) dig depth, 15 ft. 6 in. (4.77 m) reach and 10 ft. 5 in. (3.22 m) dump height. Excellent bucket rotation and class-leading tear-out forces mean great productivity. Versatility-wise, you can easily
