JCB moves to Rolls-Royce engine to power its largest excavators

JCB is making a change when it comes to the engines inside its three largest crawler excavator models.

The U.K.-based construction equipment manufacturer has decided to award Germany’s Rolls-Royce Power Systems with an order for MTU Series 1000 engines to power the JS300, JS330 and JS370 excavators.

These machines were previously powered by Isuzu engines.

JCB says it will unveil a new JS370 model at ConExpo next month powered by the MTU 6R 1000.

Though the move will mark the first excavators to be powered by Rolls-Royce engines, it represents the expansion of a partnership between the engine maker and JCB that includes use of the same 6-cylinder Series 1000 engine in JCB’s 457 wheel loader.
