JCB 19C-1E

JCB 19C-1E

JCB is leading the way in clean technology and reducing harmful emissions with E-TEC, a new generation of electric products with zero exhaust emissions, greatly reduced noise, and no compromise on performance.

The 19C-1E is JCB’s first fully electric mini excavator and the first JCB E-TEC machine offered in North America. The 2-ton (1.9-tonne) 19C-1E is ideally suited to construction and excavation applications within enclosed or urban job sites, or noise- and emissions-sensitive environments such as hospitals and schools. It offers the same power and more torque as comparable diesel-powered machines yet produces zero exhaust emissions and one-fifth of the noise.

The 19C-1E is cost-efficient too. JCB research indicates that electric charging costs for the 19C-1E will be 50 percent lower than fuel costs for a comparable diesel-powered machine over a five-year ownership period. Similarly, with fewer consumable spare parts and fluids, servicing costs will be up to 70 percent lower.


Main Features
  • Bucket tear-out of 4,046 lbf (18 kN)
  • Retractable tracks to move through narrow entrances
  • 500-hour greasing intervals (dig end and dozer)
  • Twin flow auxiliary circuit 8 gpm (32 l/min)
  • 48-volt electric driveline generating peak power up to 27 hp (20 kW)
  • he JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavator provides the freedom to work anywhere, anytime with quick charging and long battery life.
  • The standard three-battery pack provides 313 Ah (15 kWh) of capacity, which will provide a typical day’s work on a single charge.
  • Optional four-battery pack allows 417 Ah (20 kWh) capacity and delivers two additional hours of continuous use.
  • Up to 120 hours standby time.
  • Battery status information available via a gauge on the instrument panel.
  • Three charging options, with one to suit every work site and operating profile. Standard 110V input for 12-hour recharging. Available 230V charging option for 8-hour recharge or fast charge option for 2-hour recharge.
  • The JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavator requires minimal daily checks and less servicing than conventional, diesel-powered machines.
  • Maintenance-free batteries in rugged battery housing to withstand construction applications.
  • Lower operating costs as electricity is less expensive than fossil fuel.
  • No engine (or associated components and consumables), which significantly reduces daily checks, servicing time and equipment.
  • No need for expensive emissions extraction equipment when working indoors or in tunnels.
  • The JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavator generates less noise than many household appliances, making it ideal for urban areas and indoor applications and allowing better communication with co-workers.
  • Noise at the operator station is just 68 dB
  • Three single-flanged bottom rollers allied with short pitch tracks ensure a quiet, smooth ride.
  • In some circumstances, the lower machine noise may enable use outside of typical operating hours to maximize time on site and complete projects sooner
  • A blue indicator light shows the machine is running.
  • The JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavator is safer for the environment, operators and bystanders, and is ideal for working indoors and in urban areas.
  • The 19C-1E operates completely free of electrical tethers.
  • Zero emissions and low noise levels make for safer working conditions.
  • JCB’s unique 2GO system safely isolates all the controls.
  • The canopy is ROPS, TOPS and FOGS certified for full safety compliance.
  • The new JCB 19C-1E electric mini excavator is designed and built to withstand the toughest job sites, with durable components for minimal downtime.
  • 100 percent steel bodywork for maximum protection and easy repair.
  • The electrical circuit has been extensively tested and every detail checked to ensure longevity.
  • A full-width, rear cast counterweight protects against damage.
  • Extending undercarriage beams are constructed from 1-inch solid steel plate.
  • Even after 3,000 full charge and discharge cycles (equivalent of more than 10 years of use), the batteries retain more than 80 percent capacity.


  • Maximum Operating Weight: 4,193 lb (1,902 kg)
  • Maximum Dig Depth: 9 ft 3 in (2.82 m)
  • Maximum Dump Height: 9 ft 3 in (2.82 m)
