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:
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!

Breakdown of the 17-digit serial number / VIN / PIN for wheeled loaders
Breakdown of the 17-digit serial number / VIN / PIN for backhoe loaders
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
2.1.2 Location of the type plate on wheeled excavators
2.1.3 Location of the type plate on crawler excavators
2.1.4 Location of the type plate on wheel loaders
2.1.5 Location of the type plate on telescopic handler
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).
2.2 Form and appearance of the factory plate
Depending on the type of machine and the manufacturing plant, different plates are used.
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|
|50316||=||List of engine parts|
|U||=||Country of manufacture|
|500405||=||Engine serial number|
|P||=||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.
