JCB adds pilot controls to backhoe loader

March 23, 2016 -  By

JCB-backhoeJCB’s entry-level 3CX, a 14-foot, full-size backhoe loader, is now available with pilot controls.

The addition of pilot controls to the 3CX allows operators to easily adapt from operating an excavator to a backhoe without having to change the way they are used to working, the company said. 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.

Backed by a five-year warranty, the 3CX backhoe features a 13,063-pound loader breakout force and 6,354 pound-foot loader lift capacity to its full height. The excavator bucket has a 13,942-pound breakout force and is powered by a JCB EcoMax Tier 4 Final engine delivering 74 hp.
