Self Drive and Operated Hire

The JCB 8060 is a true six tonne tracked excavator (5991kg operating weight).  We generally hire 8060 tracked excavators on self drive hire basis.  At short notice we can also supply operators.

The 8060 has the same pin diameter for bucket attachments as the bigger 8 tonne JCB 8080 tracked excavator and JCB 3cx backhoe loaders which can help site efficiency.

With a greater pin diameter, 58hp engine and 2 meters machine width, the excavator can work in confined areas without scarificing power for tearout and maintain standard breaker compatability.

Can deliver for self drive hire next working day to areas including Immingham, Grimsby, Hull, Scunthorpe, Lincoln, Sheffield, Doncaster, York, Castleford, Goole, Selby and Scarbrough.


When it comes to working in confined areas or up againt walls, small is better. But to get the job done quickly and efficiently the power and performance of a bigger machine is needed. JCB midi ecavators give you the best of both worlds. The JCB 8052 and 8060 are reduced tailswing machines that offer superb performance in tighter areas than conventional tailswing models.

The 8052 and the 8060 aren't just about comfort, they are also about safe working. To the left, the operator can see the whole track. To the right the unique positioning of the engine and hydraulic pump has allowed JCB to introduce a sloping side-engine cover to improve the view of the track. The hose routing on top of the boom rather than to the side means there's less to impede visibility, and the large front screen gives a superb veiw of the load all the way up to dump height.

On all JCB midis they have introduced a load-sensed, flow-on-demand hydraulic system. This system automatically controls flow and pressure, providing the hydraulic oil to services only when the operator needs to use it. So the engine is never overworked, saving fuel. Plus because the system shares oil equally, all services can be supplied (keep working) without starving any one function, making these midi's much more productive. An additional benefit of the load-sensed hydraulics is straight-line tracking. Particularly important for positioning next to obstacles or loading/unloading, this allows you to travel safely forwards or backwards without veering off to one side when a service is operated.

The 8052 features a highly efficient Perkins 34kW (46 hp) engine, while the 8060 relies on a Isuzu 44kW (58hp) engine. This larger engine also means that the 8060 uses a higher capacity hydraulic system along with increased counter weight for even greater productivity.

Rubber tracks are fitted as standard, with steel tracks for more arduous applicatins. The two-speed track motors provide power and high tracking speeds. Plus, when you select high speed, auto kickdown automatically senses the pressure increase (commomly when spin-turning or dozing) and changes down to a low gear. When the pressure decreases, it automatically changes back up agan to high speed for faster travel. The result is that these machines keep running.

Attachments:  The 8052 is comatible with the JCB 2DX bucket attachments, while the 8060 is compatible with the JCB 3cx backhoe loader, and the JCB 8080 (8 tonne tracked excavator). Making for less troublesome planning if one or more JCB machines are operating in one place.
