The JCB 3CX is the world’s number one backhoe loader (along with the JCB 4CX). The 3CX is a product of JCB’s efficient design philosophy, responding to today’s rising fuel prices and environmental concerns with class-leading efficiency and low running costs. In short, we’ve applied innovative technologies to squeeze the absolute maximum out of every drop of fuel.

The result? In typical roading, loading, excavating and idle cycles, the 3CX JCB backhoe loader, equipped with a powerful Ecomax engine, delivers an average fuel saving of up to 16%, plus lower emissions and noise levels. Also with extended periods between fill ups, you benefit from a longer, more productive working day.

But the efficiency (and other) benefits certainly don’t end there on a JCB 3CX.


The 4-wheel steer JCB 4CX is the largest backhoe model we produce, and this latest incarnation really is a product of our 60-plus years as backhoe market leader, bearing a host of performance, comfort, safety and efficiency improvements.

Like our new award-winning EcoMAX engine, which meets Stage IV/Tier 4f legislation without DPF or SCR; compact installation provides uncompromised visibility and manoeuvrability. The 4CX Eco also has high ground clearance and 4 equal-sized wheels, so it can tackle terrain unlike any other backhoe.

PRODUCTIVITY&PERFORMANCE

  • The JCB 3CX is designed to enable fatigue-free, productive day-long working. The cab is rubber-mounted and isolated for low noise and vibration.
  • A JCB 3CX Eco cab is inspired by the automotive industry for familiarity. A heated air suspension seat, heated front screen, and a hot beverage machine are just some of the quality features you can find within.
  • Ergonomic seat-mounted excavator-style controls provide fingertip control, great comfort and excellent manoeuvrability.
  • For more comfort and less material spillage, the 3CX’s Smoothride System (SRS) minimises bounce during travel. You can quickly reset your shovel to the digging position with our return-to-dig feature too.

 

  • High back-off brakes reduce viscous drag during roading and rehandling, which improves economy by up to 1%.
  • The optional handheld tool circuit means you can increase versatility by using your 3CX as a power source for handheld tools, such as drills, breakers, cutters and even water pumps.
  • JCB 3CX backhoe loaders are quiet places to work, both inside and out – particularly the 55kW (74hp) models, which are the quietest in the industry.
  • Controls on the 3CX Eco feature an LCD panel detailing machine hours, service information, fuel level, system warnings and instantaneous fuel usage. A 360° view through tinted windows aids comfort, productivity and safety.
  • Our innovative scoop design one-piece rear windscreen allows JCB 3CX operators to see right into the trench when excavating and stay dry in wet conditions.

PRODUCTIVITY&PERFORMANCE

  • The 4CX’s new EcoMAX engine is designed, tested and built by JCB to work perfectly with JCB axles and gearboxes. T4i-compliant EcoMAX produces peak power and torque at around 1200 rpm for responsiveness and fuel-efficient matching of the transmission and hydraulics.
  • Also because EcoMAX can be adapted to run on lower-grade fuels, Backhoes are resalable across different territories, which boost residuals.
  • JCB 4CX engines are tried and tested. We’ve built 200,000 DIESELMAX engines since 2004, and we’ve tested EcoMAX for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
  • For ultimate loading performance, productivity and roading efficiency, the JCB 4CX’s EcoMAX engine delivers as much as 81kW (109hp) and 516Nm of torque.
