JCB 245XR excavators-Hydraulics system

Hydraulic System

The JCB 245 XR features a hydraulic system with a flow rate of 230.96 gpm and a working pressure at the pump of 3,937 psi. The hydraulic system on this excavator consists of two variable-displacement pumps and two gear pumps. The first variable displacement pump is used to power the swing drive, while the second is used to power the other hydraulic functions on this machine. The two gear pumps are used for powering the auxiliary hydraulics.

Travel Drive

The JCB 245 XR has a single travel motor that drives both tracks, which are 24 inches wide. This excavator moves at a maximum speed of 3.2 mph in forward and reverse positions.

Type: JCB planetary gearbox with built-in torque limiter.

Swing speed (rpm) 8.3

Swing torque ( 20,000

Swing brake: Wet, multi-disc brake fitted to the swing motor shaft.

Drive motors: Two variable displacement radial piston motors, one each for track drive and swing operation.

JCB 245XR excavators-Hydrostatic steering system


The hydraulic pump is a variable displacement piston pump, which delivers oil flow as required by the implement or steering system. The system is designed so that pump output automatically matches the required load. This results in both economical fuel consumption and excellent control in all operating conditions. The pump is driven via a splined shaft from the engine crankshaft. Pump flow is controlled by varying the position of the swash plate, which can be set at any angle between 0° and 20° to the drive shaft axis, by means of an electronically controlled servo motor.

Hydraulic System

The hydraulic system uses three pressure settings; two are selectable on the monitor and one is fixed. The default pressure setting (A) is suitable for most tasks and provides high productivity; this setting is used when no selection has been made on the monitor. Setting (B) provides the highest possible breakout force, but it has lower productivity compared to setting A; this setting must only be selected when maximum breakout force is required. Setting (C) provides maximum productivity with a reduced breakout force for very light operations such as bucket levelling; this setting cannot be selected on the monitor, but it will be used automatically under certain conditions such as low battery voltage or when using light hydraulic

JCB 245XR excavators-The specifications of the 245XR excavator.

The JCB 245XR is equipped with a four-cylinder turbo diesel engine that produces a maximum of 64 horsepower and 260 foot-pounds of torque. The engine complies with Tier 3 emissions regulations, meaning it produces fewer emissions than older models. The powerplant sits within a steel frame and is protected from the elements by a steel roll over bar and canopy.

The 245XR uses a hydraulic system to power the bucket, blade and other attachments. The hydraulic pump delivers 9 gpm of oil to the cylinders at 2,350 psi for fast and efficient movement. The hydraulic system also has an attachment quick coupler that installs or removes attachments in seconds without tools.

The JCB 245XR’s undercarriage consists of triple grouser pads on each track for traction on rough terrain. An optional gravel guard protects the undercarriage from damage when working in rocky areas. The machine’s hydraulically controlled tracks can turn through 360 degrees for tight maneuvering in confined areas.

The boom, dipper and bucket on the JCB 245XR are made from high tensile steel for strength without adding excessive weight to the machine.
