The company currently offers 12 compact excavator models, ranging from the 1.8-ton 18Z-1 to the 10-ton 100C-1. While the JCB lineup of com- pact excavators is deployed to a wide variety of construction applications, ma- chines in the 1.8- to 4-ton range are commonly used in landscaping applications and are a popular choice for rental fleet managers.

"Laws relating to maximum towing weight vary from state to state, so buyers should familiarize themselves with their local regulations and consider the transport weight of their compact excavator, along with the trailer and tow- ing vehicle, to ensure they are operating within the law when transporting the machine from one jobsite to another."
