The JCB 3CX Compact Backhoe Loader

Consider A 3CX Compact Backhoe Loader

After inventing the first backhoe loaders on the market, JCB has introduced the 3CX Compact Backhoe Loader, a small  jcb-3cx-compact-backhoe-loader-platform machine that provides big results on the job site. The 3CX is easy to use, easy to control, and comes with a 2-year/2,000-hour bucket-to-bucket transferable warranty. Expect the same manufacturing quality, operational reliability and high residual values as any of the JCB larger machines.

Smaller Machine for Tighter Spaces

The 3CX Compact was designed for superiority in confined job sites, making it perfect for urban construction projects. The skid steer quick-hitch allows for a wide range of attachments, which means excellent versatility. And 4-wheel steer is standard, enhancing maneuverability even in the tightest spots.

Additionally, this machine is also an excellent choice for niche applications, like roadwork operations, where the tight turning radius and switchable steering lets the machine work within the confines of a single roadway lane. This means less disruption and excellent productivity.

It also shows its capabilities on commercial landscaping jobs, where the side-shift chassis means the operator can dig square holes and work close to walls or fences. It’s also very useful for cemetery operations, utility operations, and many more.

Plus, a 25mph road speed means the operator can move quickly between job sites for even greater productivity.
Let’s dig deeper into the features of the 3CX Compact.

It’s Easy To Operate and Comfortable to Use

No matter what the job, ease of operation means a more productive work day with less fatigue for the operator. Comfort  jcb-3cx-compact-backhoe-loader-starts with the standard air-conditioned cab, and an optional spacious canopy.

JCB has included a fully adjustable air-suspension seat, engineered for comfort during long days in the cab. The machine also features ranges, easily selected at just the touch of a button. And the excavator joystick controls are designed for ease-of-use, smooth controlability and improved operator comfort. A dash-mounted display provides the information needed for efficient loading and travel.

Cell phones and other personal accessories are powered by an in-cab 12 V auxiliary circuit, and a standard-fit SAE+/ISO+ control pattern switch enables customization to suit the preferences of any operator.

Lower Operating Costs For Your Company

JCB understands the bottom line, and has installed the JCB Diesel by Kohler 74 hp (55 kW) engine in the 3CX Compact for lower operating costs. There is no DPF, so you save money on expensive replacement filters and productivity-sapping regeneration. And of course, that reduces downtime. Plus, the engine requires no DEF, again reducing operating costs and hassle for operators.

Of course, maintenance is a must, but the 3CX Compact allows for minimum downtime with industry-leading 500-hour service intervals and simple, ground-level daily checks.
Fuel efficient matching of engine speed and hydraulics means the 3CX Compact delivers high power and torque at engine speeds as low as 1,300–1,400 RPM.

And with road speed of 25 mph and thus the ability to move quickly between job sites, you may be able to eliminate renting or purchasing a truck and trailer to transport the machine.

The standard 2-year/2,000-hour full, bucket-to-bucket warranty, minimizes the impact of unscheduled repairs and maintenance.

A More Productive Backhoe Loader

A small footprint of only 6 ft. 7 in. wide means the 3CX Compact is perfect for working within gardens, parks, single-lane roadways and small construction sites. And a height of less than 10 ft. allows access to confined work sites, such as low-level buildings and basements. Travel height is just 9 ft, making transport easier. LiveLink telematics is standard, to monitor machine usage and geo-location at all times.

And The 3CX Compact Backhoe Loader is Truly Versatile

This compact workhorse is the versatile solution for any operator who requires the excavating and material handling capabilities of a large machine in a compact size.

Equipped with a skid steer loader quick-hitch, skid steer attachments can be added smoothly and easily for superior versatility and adaptability. Plus, for added flexibility, the available hand-held tool circuit can power a wide range of attachments, like water pumps, disc cutters, augers, and handheld breakers.
