JCB’s popular entry-level 3CX, a 14’ full size backhoe loader is now available with pilot controls.
The machine boasts a class leading 13,063-lb. loader breakout force and 6,354-lbf loader lift capacity to its full height. The excavator bucket has a 13,942-lb. breakout force and is powered by a JCB EcoMax Tier 4 Final engine delivering 74 hp. This highly efficient power plant has no requirement for a costly Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or any form of exhaust after-treatment such as DEF, reducing operating costs and allowing for quicker turnaround time between rentals.
Pilot controls are commonly found in hydraulic excavators, the addition of pilot controls to the 3CX allows operators to easily adapt from operating an excavator to a backhoe. Other options include a climate-controlled cab, hammer pipework, an extending dipper and loader pipework.
The 3CX comes standard with daily fluid auto-checks and JCB LiveLink telematics, allowing users to monitor machine performance and maintenance needs. Owners are alerted via email or text message if the machine continues to operate with a fault alert. The 3CX is the only backhoe on the market to offer this exclusive feature.
