My Industry:  Construction

The JCB 722 has a 20 tonne payload for serious heavy-duty material handling applications, with some of the manoeuvrability, control and speed of a smaller machine.

The engine is a potent 6.7 litre turbo diesel unit producing 194 kW and 990 Nm of torque, mated to a Smoothshift transmission and permanent 6-wheel drive for a 46 kph top speed and smooth performance. Front and rear recovery hitches come as standard.

The 722 is a large dump truck suitable for a vast range of applications.


The JCB 722 is a superb all-round performer. The powerful engine and transmission keep everything running smoothly and there’s efficient dry disc braking front and rear to slow things down.

There are 6 forward gears and 3 reverse (with manual or automatic operation), providing a 46 kph forward or 32 kph reverse top speed. A body tipping angle of 74° provides effective material discharge.

A 45° articulation and independent rear chassis oscillation provides manoeuvrability, safety and positive ground engagement.

Standard limited slip diffs and permanent 6-wheel drive mean the JCB 722 has optimum traction even in treacherous terrain, while excellent all-round visibility aids manoeuvrability even more.


The JCB 722 is designed to keep its operator comfortable and therefore productive. There’s standard air conditioning, simple intuitive controls and, of course, great visibility. A fully suspended front axle and rear A-frame suspension provides both ride comfort and speed.

To make the operator still more at home with the JCB 722, we’ve made routine servicing (and general service access) very easy. We’ve fitted a single piece engine cover that’s hinged at the cab, a hinged cooling pack, a battery isolator near the cab door, IP69 electrics and an EMS monitoring system to warn operators of problems. Finally, there’s ground level access to all grease points.
