MORE COMPACT
  • At only 6’5″ wide the 3CX compact is almost 20 inches narrower than a standard backhoe (attachment dependent). And a near 9′ foot travel height allows this model to access extremely tight spaces.

    A sub- 9’10” height unlocks a whole new range of previously inaccessible work sites, such as low level buildings and basements.

    Its narrow width makes the 3CX compact ideal for entering gardens, parks and small construction sites with restricted access.

    When everything is taken into account, the machine is 35% smaller than a standard backhoe.

MORE MANEUVERABLE
  • Switchable 2 wheel steer/4 wheel steer allows operators to travel safely on highways, then easily change steering modes providing maneuverability on site.

    A three-speed 25mph hydrostatic transmission makes the 3CX compact an incredibly independent backhoe with a large working radius for optimum productivity; this means that you’re not reliant on other equipment to transport your machine.

    This backhoe loader is powered by a high torque, Tier IV Final, 74hp JCB by Kohler diesel engine that requires no DPF and no after-treatment, keeping service costs and downtime to a minimum.

    Compared to a standard JCB backhoe, the turning radius of a 3CX compact is 16% tighter; in fact, at just 19′ with brakes engaged, you can U-turn the machine on a two-lane highway.

     

MORE VERSATILE
  • The 3CX compact is not only designed for a full range of backhoe loader attachments, but also has the ability to pick up a wide range of skid steer attachments. Bi-directional pipework and a handheld tool circuit provide even greater versatility.

    This versatile one machine solution is ideal for gas companies, cemeteries and municipalities. Its 13,380lb operating weight, 4-wheel steering and rubber tires, allow it to drive over freshly laid asphalt, which makes it perfect for road resurfacing as well.

    The JCB 3CX compact is so versatile that it can complete the work of multiple machines, including compact wheel loaders, compact excavators, forklifts and motorized sweepers. This, of course, can save customers both time and money.

    You can carry out everything from fork work to moving material, the digging of footings, lifting mortar tubs, site stripping, sweeping and site cleaning.

    With a 25mph road speed, travelling to and around jobsites is quick with the 3CX compact, increasing overall productivity.

    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, handheld breakers and much more.

     

EASIER TO OPERATE
  • Three-speed controls allow the correct speed to be selected at the touch of a button on the JCB 3CX compact.

    Excavator-style controls are fitted as standard, providing ease-of-use and controllability.

    A fully adjustable air-suspension seat provides fatigue free all-day operation for your backhoe operators.

    During travel and loading, the 3CX compact’s front dash-mounted display provides all the information you need.

    The 12V auxiliary circuit powers useful accessories, such as mobile phones.

    The standard SAE+/ISO+ control patter switch provides ultimate customization on the 3CX compact.

     

GREAT RETURNS ON INVESTMENT
  • We’ve used only field-proven components on the JCB 3CX compact backhoe to maximize uptime and ensure that your machine spends as much time as possible earning you money.

    A 25mph speed eliminates the need to rent or purchase a truck and trailer to transport your backhoe loader.

    You can expect a high specification machine at a competitive price, providing you with maximum value for your investment. A full range of attachments increase versatility and allow for greater rental returns.

    LiveLink is standard, enabling you to monitor how your backhoe is used, its fuel consumption and its location at all times.
