A Drivetrain without Compromise
The 4CX 17 Super’s new EcoMAX engine is designed, tested and built by JCB to work perfectly with JCB axles and gearboxes. T4i-compliant EcoMAX produces power and torque at around 1,500 rpm for responsiveness and fuel-efficient matching of the transmission and hydraulics.

Because EcoMAX doesn’t use exhaust after-treatment, it doesn’t need costly heat-resistant lube oils or AdBlue, saving servicing costs. And, because EcoMAX can be adapted to run on lower-grade fuels, backhoes are resalable across different territories, which boost residuals.

JCB 4CX 17 Super engines are tried and tested. We’ve built 200,000 Dieselmax engines since 2004, and we’ve tested EcoMAX for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.

For ultimate loading performance, productivity and roading efficiency, the JCB 4CX 17 Super’s EcoMAX engine delivers as much as 109 hp (81 kW) and 381 ft. lbs. (516 Nm) of torque.

JCB’s unique TorqueLock system is standard-fit on all 109 hp (81 kW) powershift 4CX 17 Super models. Combined with our optional 6-speed Autoshift transmission, it can help save up to 25% on fuel and 10% on road travel time.

An optional limited slip differential gives a JCB 4CX 17 Super superior traction and performance, as well as reduced tire wear.

The 4CX 17 Super JCB backhoe loader is fitted with EcoRoad technology to provide the highest efficiency and productivity levels when roading. Fuel consumption is reduced, while machine speed and working area are increased by up to 10%.

The JCB 4CX 17 Super has 3 modes of 4-wheel steering and a large 1.1 m å_ shovel capacity for exceptional on-site productivity.

Our 6-speed autoshift transmission with floor mounted kickdown switch provides great pulling power on the 4CX 17 Super.

Innovative Hydraulics
A new high output variable flow pump reduces the JCB 4CX 17 Super’s cycle times, saves fuel and, on manual backhoes, lighter lever effort makes control easier.

There’s more tractive effort at the 4CX 17 Super’s pile than ever, thanks to new variable flow pump power management and the new JCB EcoMAX engine.

The 4CX 17 Super’s 4-ram self-leveling loader automatically adjusts the shovel on both the raise and lower cycle without any need for manual adjustment.It also provides unhindered front shovel visibility, especially when loading at height.

The optional combined hammer and bi-directional circuit provides optimized low-flow and high-flow hydraulic power with low back pressure for great attachment versatility.

At the loading end of the JCB 4CX 17 Super, our return to dig feature automatically resets the shovel into the loading position, and selectable transmission disconnect diverts maximum hydraulic power from the engine to the loader arms.

Strength: Why Compromise?
JCB 4CX 17 Super axles and transmission are designed to withstand a 12,000-hour design life; heavyweight axles are built to withstand serious shock loads. The rear axle alone has a static load rating of 55,125 lbs. (25,011 kg), and a dynamic load rating of 27,562 lbs. (12,505 kg).

We use stress-relieved fabrication for the 4CX 17 Super’s boom – by heating materials to over 650°C for over 16 hours, we make sure the metal is evenly heated, doubling boom life.
The 4CX 17 Super’s pre-production testing regime included 100,000 loading cycles, 500,000 excavating cycles, 360,000 gear change cycles, extensive bump track testing to ensure structural integrity, and thousands of hours of endurance testing.

We also carried out extensive EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility) testing on the 4CX 17 Super; this ensures that signals from mobile phones and radios don’t affect the machine in any way.

Every new JCB 4CX 17 Super is put through around 600 performance checks on the production line.

Our construction materials are tested to the limit by exposing them to extreme temperatures, chemicals, salt, oil and light. That way, we know they’ll survive the most hostile conditions.

For rigidity and hose protection, there are flat plate D-pressing loader arms on the JCB 4CX 17 Super.

The robot welded single-piece chassis on the 4CX 17 Super maximizes strength and minimizes weight.

Hydraulic hoses are approved to work down to -40°C and all JCB 4CX 17 Super materials are tested to extreme temperatures and exposed to chemical, salt, oil and sunlight to ensure maximum protection.

A Quality Workplace
The JCB 4CX 17 Super is designed to enable fatigue-free, productive day-long working. The cab is rubber-mounted and isolated for low noise and vibration.

A JCB 4CX 17 Super cab is inspired by the automotive industry for familiarity. A heated air suspension seat, heated front windshield, and a hot beverage machine are just some of the quality features you can find within.

Ergonomic seat-mounted excavator-style controls – with optional excavator-style backhoe and loader servo controls – provide fingertip control, great comfort and excellent maneuverability.

For more comfort and less material spillage, the 4CX 17 Super’s Smoothride System (SRS) minimizes bounce during travel. You can quickly reset your shovel to the digging position with our return-to-dig feature too.

High back-off brakes reduce viscous drag during roading and re-handling, which improves economy by up to 1%.

The optional handheld tool circuit means you can increase versatility by using your 4CX 17 Super as a power source for handheld tools, such as drills, breakers, cutters and even water pumps.

JCB 4CX 17 Super backhoe loaders are quiet places to work, both inside and out – particularly the 109 hp (81 kW) models, which are the quietest in the industry.
Controls on the 4CX 17 Super Eco feature an LCD panel detailing machine hours, service information fuel level and system warnings. A 360° view through tinted windows aids comfort, productivity and safety.

Our innovative scoop design 1-piece rear windscreen allows JCB 4CX 17 Super operators to see right into the trench when excavating.

To make operators feel right at home in the 4CX 17 Super, they can opt for the standard-fit traditional manual control system, with a choice of 3 control patterns – JCB X, SAE+ and ISO+. There’s even an in-cab cool box.
