THE LATEST JCB 3CX AND 4CX BACKHOES DON’T JUST PROVIDE YOU WITH THE POWER TO GET THINGS DONE; THEY ALSO OFFER YOU COUNTLESS FEATURES TO ENSURE THAT PERFORMANCE IS EFFICIENT, AND OWNERSHIP COSTS ARE REDUCED.
4 A new stainless steel SCR replaces the current exhaust system on backhoes over 55kW (74hp).
We’ve met the strict regulations by reducing NOX emissions by 90%. The emissions of one Stage IV machine are equivalent to ten Stage IIIB machines, creating a substantially cleaner and safer environment, without detriment to fuel consumption, engine power or visibility.
To reduce noise and save fuel, we’ve fitted the 3CX and 4CX with a viscous fan as standard; this only cuts in when it’s needed, and doesn’t draw engine power.
5 High back-off brakes reduce viscous drag during roading and rehandling, which in turn improves economy by up to 2%.
6 Because the 3CX and 4CX are fitted with a Thatcham-approved security system (depending on territory), you could benefit from lower insurance premiums.
A high output variable flow pump reduces cycle times and saves fuel. On manual machines, it also provides lighter lever effort for easier control.
1 To stop the 3CX or 4CX’s kingpost hoses from snagging and sustaining damage, we enclose them in a flexible, robust guide.
2 The steering ram on these backhoes is protected from impact damage whilst loading, because it’s mounted behind the front axle.
3 To protect boom and dipper hoses from the perils of trenchwork, we’ve enclosed them inside the rear structures of the machine.
4 The rams on our 3CX and 4CX machines are ultra-reliable because they’re protected from debris when loading by optional JCB clam shovel ram guards.
5 To safeguard from impact damage on site, the 3CX and 4CX are now fitted with rear light guards.
Built to last.
6 For added rigidity – and to protect hoses from damage – a 3CX or 4CX has flat plate-depressed loader arms, while cat tail welds reduce stress concentrations.
7 The plastic fuel tank on the 3CX and 4CX is completely rustproof for ultimate fuel injection system protection.
8 The single-piece composite cab floor on these backhoes is also rustproof, and has moulded water channels.
9 JCB’s robot welded single-piece chassis maximises strength and minimises weight.
Tested to the limits.
10 All the materials with which we construct our backhoe loaders are tested to the very max. By exposing those materials to extreme temperatures, chemicals, salt, oil and light, we know they’ll survive the most hostile conditions.
11 To prove the durability of our new EcoMAX engines, we’ve tested them for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications
The axles and transmissions of JCB 3CXs and 4CXs are built for a 12,000-hour life, with the heavyweight axles designed to withstand massive shock loads. The rear axle alone has a static load rating of 25,000kg, and a dynamic load rating of 12,500kg.
JCB 3CX/4CX Reviews:
• Make looking under the bonnet of your backhoe a thing of the past by having all routine engine checks automatically carried out at the start of every working day.
2 Auto Idle.
• Automatically returns engine rpm to idle saving time and effort.
• Adjustable time delay to suit operators and different applications.
• Potential fuel saving of £122 per year (based on a 1500hr cycle.
3 Auto Throttle.
• Returns engine speed to pre-set hand throttle position when work is resumed.
• Improves ease of use, saves time and reduces effort.
• Maintains idle until levers are activated.
