NEW JCB 140X Series Stage V Update Introduced Into The Fleet

WHC Hire Services are proud to announce the arrival of the first wave of NEW updated Stage V JCB 140X Series excavators. This is part of WHC Hire’s continuous commitment to providing the latest and highest quality equipment to all of its customers.

These new 14T Excavators are fitted with JCB’s stage V diesel max engines, which are designed to provide exceptional power, higher fuel efficiency and fewer emissions. This JCB 140X sits perfectly with its two highly acclaimed big brothers, the 220X and the recently added 245XR.

The 14T Excavator (JCB 140X Series Stage V) offers extreme strength, after 15,000 hours of vibration testing in the harshest of conditions. Its exceptional control provides effortless working with Japanese hydraulics delivering pinpoint accuracy. The stage V 140x series is also fitted with auto-stop start or auto idle features to maximise fuel efficiency whilst in operation.

These excavators are fitted with JCB’s CommandPlus cabin which provides best-in-class comfort for all-day operation. Improved double cushion viscous mounts reduce vibrations and noise in the cabin, resulting in the lowest cabin noise of 67dh(a).

Following this, this new stage V excavator offers best-in-class for ease of use with stop-start technology and a fitted quick hitch for fast cupelling of buckets and breakers.

These new 14T excavators are the first of 5 which are on order from JCB, due to arrive in 2022. These brand new machines are available to hire from all our depots in Tewkesbury, Chipping Norton and Worcester.


MD James Clutterbuck said, “We introduced the original 140X tier iv into our fleet back in 2019, during its initial release. Instantly it became an industry changer for our customers. The quality and performance that these excavators provided were a true reflection of what we stand for at WHC Hire. With the re-release of the upgraded stage V Dieselmax engine, we had no hesitation to expand our fleet. These new machines provide the same high-quality performance, with the added benefit of lower emissions and higher fuel efficiency. This is just another example of our commitment to providing low-hours, high-quality equipment to our valued customers. We look forward to seeing these machines out in the field getting the job done!”
