JCB – Backhoe
JCB knows a thing or two about designing the perfect backhoe loader. JCB was, after all, the first company who developed the concept back in 1953. And it has stayed first pretty much ever since: today JCB is the world’s number one backhoe loader manufacturer by quite some way (almost half of all backhoe loaders are JCB ones).
The smallest backhoe loader in the range is the 1CX. At just 1.4 metres wide, with the ability to turn on its own axis due to its Skid Steer design, it can operate in virtually any environment. It’s fitted with a universal quickhitch and full side-shift capability too.
The range-topping JCB 3CX Eco and JCB 4CX Eco, meanwhile, are quite simply the world’s most efficient backhoe loaders for typical duty cycles. TorqueLock provides a fuel saving of up to 25% when roading, and the EcoDig, EcoLoad and EcoRoad systems are designed to save you even more.
