The JCB 3CX PLUS & PRO offers exclusively the EcoMax Stage V engine configuration that has been widely acclaimed for a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and particulates. Also, we have empirical evidence from the JCB Live Link telemetry system that this model in many applications is averaging under 6 litres of fuel per hour which offers an extraordinary cost saving over the life of the machine that simple cannot be rivalled by any competitors. To prevent any movement from the Loader or backhoe the hydraulic controls are neutralised and cannot be activated with the engine started until the operator has acknowledge the functions.
The JCB 3CX Backhoe has a one-piece chassis from front to rear with a one-piece bonnet that makes daily servicing an easy task.
The 3CX PLUS features a 4 speed Powershift now also with torque lock transmission with selectable 4wd. The 3CX PRO features class leading 6 speed auto Powershift transmission with torque lock for unrivalled road doing performance with high road speed capability. The 3CX Backhoe has a standard auto locking limited slip diff, which detects wheel slip without the requirement for operator engagement. Furthermore, in the event of a quick deviation being required when the axle is locked simply turning the steering wheel will automatically disengage diff lock.
The Hydraulic system is a closed centre variable displacement pump with a max flow of 165lpm. The Auxiliary hydraulic lines are a standard factory fit for bidirectional and single directional flow. All of these can be activated from the left-hand joystick. The exclusive in seat pilot controls can be easily isolated by a 3-way switch with visual alerts indicating whether the hydraulic system is activated or isolated. To protect all the hydraulic lines JCB have run the lines internally on the boom and dipper to reduce damage (except the auxiliary lines).
The JCB Backhoe has some fascinating backhoe features including a 5.46m dig depth, auto boom lock and factory engineered Hydraulic side shift actuation which JCB pioneered back in 1999. JCB’s Power slide Hydraulic Side Shift is a feature that is factory fitted. The hydraulic cylinder and ancillary plumbing are all placed behind the kingpost not above the slide rails. JCB are the only manufacturer that fit sacrificial wear pads between the kingpost and the slide rail for increasing the life of the slide rail.
The JCB 3CX Backhoe has parallel lift and standard SRS Boom Suspension. The JCB Smooth Ride System (SRS) consists if a dry nitrogen and oil filled accumulator installed in line with the loader lift cylinders. When activated, the SRS allows the loaders arms to float. This action counteracts variations in road or site surfaces and provides the operator with a smoother and more comfortable ride. The JCB SRS is manually controlled, via a rocker switch on the instrument panel, for maximum benefit and user flexibility.

and still within easy reach, and for enhanced ease of use can also be controlled through the rotary encoder located on the side console, no matter which way the Operator’s seat is facing.
The new 3CX Auto introduces a wider range of advanced automation features designed to reduce operator fatigue through less manual operations and movement, increase productivity by cutting cycle times and improve fuel efficiency.
The in-cab air conditioning system on the 3CX Backhoe has excellent capabilities with velocity air flow through 14 individual vents. The cab offers great storage with a large box in cab and also storage behind the operator’s seat.
The 3CX PLUS & PRO has a fully adjustable heated cloth air suspension seat with lumbar support and 180-degree operation. With exclusive in seat service hydraulic controls unlike our competitors the JCB servo System turns with the seat offering full 180-degree operation of the backhoe. The 3CX features multifunction servo controls for both the loader & backhoe. To enable operators to feel right at home in the 3CX, we fit a traditional manual control system as standard with switchable ISO/SAE control patterns.
