JCB 3CX Compact
High performance in a compact package
JCB established the backhoe loader concept in 1953, introducing many new features to the market. And, in a fast changing world, our new 3CX Compact tool carrier represents the latest in backhoe innovation.
It is perfect for urban working and restricted construction sites, since it has been designed to give operators a big performance in restricted areas. To work in a single carriageway with minimum disruption and maximum productivity is allowed by a tight turning circle and switchable steering modes. Ease of use, controllability and legendary JCB build quality is also standard on the 3CX Compact tool carrier.
Operators can travel safely on highways due to the switchable 2WS/4WS and then easily change steer mode to give manoeuvrability on site.
The 3CX Compact tool carrier is an incredibly independent backhoe thanks to its three-speed 40km/h hydrostatic Transmission. With a large working radius for optimum productivity the 3CX Compact is a machine which is not reliant on other equipment to transport it.
The 3CX Compact tool carrier is not only designed for the full range of backhoe loader attachments. It also has the capability to pick up a large range of skid steer loader attachments. Bi-directional pipework and a handheld tool circuit provide even greater versatility. This versatile one machine solution can carry out road repair, utilities, municipalities and groundworks task with ease.
The JCB 3CX Compact tool carrier is so versatile that it can do the work of various other machines, including dumpers, compact wheeled loaders, mini excavators, forklifts and motorised sweepers. This, of course, can save you time and money.
For added flexibility, there’s an optional handheld tool circuit built in that can power a huge array of attachments, such as water pumps, disc cutters, augers, hand breakers and much more.
At only 1.95m wide, the 3CX Compact tool carrier is almost half a metre narrower than a standard backhoe (attachment dependant).
A whole new range of previously inaccessible work sites such as low level buildings and basements, are now reachable by its sub-3m height unlocks.
When everything is taken into account, this machine is 35% smaller than a standard backhoe.
