JCB

In General:

JCB In the absence of binding legal provisions there is no unified system of designation and placement of identification numbers and data plates!

Since nearly all manufacturers produce machines worldwide, this can, depending on the machines involved, lead to variations in these descriptions.

In case of doubt, contact the manufacturer!

JCB construction machines can be identified from the following numbers:

  Location (short description)
Serial number PIN / VIN – on the frame
– on the type plate
– Additional plate (only for Germany)
Engine Number – on the engine
– on the type plate

 

It is possible to work backwards from the numbers on sub-components, but this can only be done manually at the manufacturing plant itself. Before requesting such a search it is necessary to provide an exact description of the machine to make sure that the construction data is as accurate as possible.

 

1. Vehicle Identification Number:

 

The designation for the chassis number is not fixed due to a lack of binding provisions and a miscellany of production plants. Here, the following designations:

1. Serial number

2. VIN (Vehicle identification number)

3. PIN (Product information number)

are used and frequently used in varying lengths! (7 – 17 characters)

Starting on 2005 a 17-character VIN was introduced on some models of construction machine. The period when this occurred varies, depending on the manufacturing plant and machine concerned.

1.1 Vehicle serial numbers

1.1.1 Location of VIN in mini-excavator

The VIN is located on the front frame, on the left, in the direction of travel. Can only be seen after removal of the cover at the driver’s entrance!

1.1.1.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

1.1.2 Location of the VIN on wheeled excavators

On the right side (as viewed from the driver’s seat) near the boom joint

1.1.2.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

 

Additionally on the right side of the chassis (as viewed from the driver’s seat)

1.1.3 Location of the VIN on crawler excavators

On the right side (as viewed from the driver’s seat) near the boom joint

1.1.3.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

1.1.4 Location of the VIN on wheel loaders

1.1.4.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

Additionally on the rear left side of the frame

1.1.5 Location of VIN in the telescopic handler

In older models at the rear left side above the VIN plate
In more recent models at the rear left side near the tail light

1.1.5.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

here 7 digits
Applied by fine needle-punching, therefore hard to detect; can also be vertically applied.

1.1.6 Location of the VIN on backhoe loaders

 

1.1.6.1 Form and appearance of the VIN

BreakdoOwn of the 17-digit serial number / VIN / PIN for excavators
Breakdown of the 17-digit serial number / VIN / PIN for wheeled loaders
Breakdown of the 17-digit serial number / VIN / PIN for backhoe loaders

Caution !!

The serial number is often referred to as PIN and entered as such in the search files.
Therefore when making trace requests do one with the complete VIN and one with just the serial number!!!

2. Type Plate:

2.1 Location of the type plate

2.1.1 Location of the type plate on mini-excavator

At the front of the frame in the swivel cylinder housing

2.1.2 Location of the type plate on wheeled excavators

At the front right side of the superstructure, underneath the cab

2.1.3 Location of the type plate on crawler excavators

At the rear right pillar on the inside of the cab

2.1.4 Location of the type plate on wheel loaders

on the frame, at the front, on the right

2.1.5 Location of the type plate on telescopic handler

Aat the rear left side of the frame

2.1.6 Location of the type plate on backhoe loader

The type plate with the engraved serial number is fixed on with rivets and is located beneath the stamped serial number on the front frame, on the right (as seen in the direction of travel).

At the front right side of the frame

2.2 Form and appearance of the factory plate

Depending on the type of machine and the manufacturing plant, different plates are used.

Example:

2.2.1 Mini excavators

2.2.2 Wheel excavators

2.2.3 Tracked excavators

2.2.4 Wheeled loaders

2.2.5Adhesive plate in telescopic handler

3. Engine Number:

3.1 Location of the engine number

Depending on the type of machine or engine installed, the engine identification number is punched into the engine block or embossed on a riveted metal plate.

Due to accessory equipment, it is hardly accessible when installed, however.
There are various stickers on the engine, however, on which the engine identification number is indicated.

Besides, it is indicated on the type plate.

3.1 Adhesive plates at the engine

Engine data plate at the Deutz engine

3.2 On the type plate

3.3 Form and appearance of the engine number

3.4 Breakdown of theengine  number

The engine number breaks down into:

Example: AB  50262  U  500405 P 
AB = Engine type
50316 = List of engine parts
U = Country of manufacture
500405 = Engine serial number
= Year of manufacture

 

4. Vehicle Keys:

JCB machines are equipped with only one locking system.

Every machine can therefore be opened/driven with a universal key.
