JCB knows a thing or two about designing the perfect backhoe loader. We were, after all, the first company who developed the concept back in 1953. And we’ve stayed first pretty much ever since: today we’re the world’s number one backhoe loader manufacturer by quite some way (almost half of all backhoe loaders are JCBs).

The smallest backhoe loader in our range is the 1CX. At just 1.4 metres wide, with the ability to turn on its own axis due to its Skid Steer design, it can operate in virtually any environment. It’s also fitted with a universal quickhitch and full side-shift capability ready for sale.

The original backhoe

The 2CX, one of our smallest JCB backhoes, with four-wheel steer for excellent manoeuverability and our extradig dipper for superb backhoe performance and hydraulic loader quick hitch is fitted as standard. We also offer a wide array of attachments which makes the 2CX extremely versatile.

Our range-topping JCB 3CX Eco and JCB 5CX Eco, meanwhile, are quite simply the world’s most efficient backhoe loaders for typical duty cycles. TorqueLock provides a fuel saving of up to 25% when roading, and our EcoDig, EcoLoad and EcoRoad systems are designed to save you even more.  Exclusive patented in seat servo controls offer the operator unprecedented versatility and flexibility.
