JCB has updated its smallest backhoe loader, the 1CX. Optional loader arms are 4 inches longer, and an extending dipper option adds up to 20 inches to provide maximum dig dept of 10 feet. A new Power Management System improves performance, reducing engine lug down as the machine starts to dig and increasing power when driving into a pile with the front bucket. Cab improvements include optional Servo backhoe controls and improved seat with 2 additional inches of leg room.
Demolition package for JCB skid steer or compact track loader models is factory-installed during manufacturing and includes a fire extinguisher, Level 2 FOPS guard, a twine cutter (wheeled models only), front screen guard and heavy-duty rear bars.
JCB is betting that small will be big in future backhoe sales, as it has introduced the 3CX compact backhoe loader at ICUEE in Louisville.
