• To minimise noise and vibration, the cab sits on six viscous rubber mounts.
  • JCB’s climate control option offers a precisely controlled cab temperature with fresh or recirculated air.
  • A roomy floor area with large high grip rubber-coated pedals and a rubber footrest is a perfect setup for easy and precise tracking.
  • Ventilation is plentiful when you open the standard cab roof hatch and the rear sliding window.
  • A 70/30 front screen split gives the JCB JS305 excellent front visibility. A clear view of the front right track provides easy, safe trench digging and comfortable manoeuvring. All-round visibility is superb, with a large glass area on the right-hand-side and top corner of the cab. An innovative low-level bonnet allows clear rearward views.
  • Operators are kept abreast of all important information via the 3.5” display. This can be accessed via a new rotary controller.
  • A spacious stowage area behind the seat provides plenty of room for an operators personal items.


  • The new JS305’s JCB DIESELMAX engine has an Eco mode which reduces fuel consumption whilst maintaining substantial productivity levels.
  • Auto idle reduces engine speed to 1100 rpm after 6 seconds, adjustable up to 30 seconds of machine inactivity. The engine speed is restored as soon as you operate your excavator again.
  • Our innovative hydraulic regeneration system recycles oil across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption. For even more fuel savings, you can use our innovative one-touch idle feature to reduce engine speed at the push of a button.
  • To make oil flow as precise and efficient as possible, we’ve optimised the hydraulic pump settings and revised the spool configuration within the main valve block. The system now delivers only the flow you need for the job at hand.
