JCB pioneered the backhoe loader concept in 1953, introducing many innovative features to the market. And, in a rapidly changing world, our new 3CX Compact Backhoe represents the latest in backhoe innovation.
Designed to give you big performance in small areas, it’s perfect for urban working and construction sites with restricted space. A tight turning radius and switchable steering modes allow it to work in a single lane with minimum disruption and maximum productivity. Ease-of-use, controllability and legendary JCB build quality comes standard on the 3CX Compact Backhoe.
- MORE VERSATILE
The 3CX compact is a versatile solution ideal for gas companies, cemeteries and municipalities. Its 13,380lb/6,069kg operating weight, 4-wheel steering and rubber tires, allow it to drive over freshly laid asphalt, which makes it perfect for road resurfacing as well.
The JCB 3CX compact is so versatile that it can complete the work of multiple machines, including compact wheel loaders, compact excavators, forklifts and motorized sweepers. This, of course, can save customers both time and money.
You can carry out everything from fork work to moving material, the digging of footings, lifting mortar tubs, site stripping, sweeping and site cleaning.
With a 25mph road speed, travelling to and around jobsites is quick with the 3CX compact, increasing overall productivity.
For added flexibility, there’s an optional handheld tool circuit built in that can power a huge array of attachments, such as water pumps, disc cutters, augers, handheld breakers and much more.
- MORE COMPACT
At only 6’5” wide the 3CX compact is almost 20 inches narrower than a standard backhoe (attachment dependent). And a near 9' foot travel height allows this model to access extremely tight spaces.
A sub- 9’10” height unlocks a whole new range of previously inaccessible work sites, such as low level buildings and basements.
Its narrow width makes the 3CX compact ideal for entering gardens, parks and small construction sites with restricted access.
When everything is taken into account, the machine is 35% smaller than a standard backhoe.
- EASIER TO OPERATE
Three-speed controls allow the correct speed to be selected at the touch of a button on the JCB 3CX compact.
Excavator-style controls are fit as standard, providing ease-of-use and controllability.
A fully adjustable air-suspension seat provides fatigue free all-day operation for backhoe operators.
During travel and loading, the 3CX compact’s front dash-mounted display provides all the information you need.
The 12V auxiliary circuit powers useful accessories, such as cell phones.
The standard SAE+/ISO+ control pattern switch provides ultimate customization on the 3CX compact.
- GREAT RETURNS ON INVESTMENT
We’ve used only field-proven components on the JCB 3CX compact backhoe to maximize uptime and ensure that your machine spends as much time as possible earning you money.
A 25mph speed eliminates the need to rent or purchase a truck and trailer to transport your backhoe loader.
You can expect a high specification machine at a competitive price, providing you with maximum value for your investment. A full range of attachments increase versatility and allow for greater rental returns.
LiveLink is standard, enabling you to monitor how your backhoe is used, its fuel consumption and its location at all times.
JCB is the global brand leader in backhoes. All JCB backhoes boast an enviable reputation for both quality and high residual values.
- MORE MANEUVERABLE
Switchable 2-wheel steer/4-wheel steer allows operators to travel safely on highways, then easily change steering modes providing maneuverability on site.
A three-speed 25mph hydrostatic transmission makes the 3CX compact an incredibly independent backhoe with a large working radius for optimum productivity; this means that you’re not reliant on other equipment to transport your machine.
This backhoe loader is powered by a high torque, Tier 4 Final, 74hp JCB Diesel by Kohler engine that requires no DPF and no after-treatment, keeping service costs and downtime to a minimum.
Compared to a standard JCB backhoe, the turning radius of a 3CX compact is 16% tighter; in fact, at just 19’ with brakes engaged, you can U-turn the machine on a two-lane highway.
