The company’s 3CX Backhoe Loader earned “The Longest Journey in an Excavator” world record after completing a 26-day, 3185-mile road trip across America. Beating the existing record by 600 miles, JCB employee Neil Smith carried a bucket of East Coast sand from Tybee Island, Ga., to the beach at the Santa Monica, Calif., pier. The trip was part of the “Backhoe Across America” fundraiser, which raised awareness and funds for the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund. Visit to find out more.
