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.
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.
The C Series backhoe loader lineup includes the B95C (with tool carrier, TR, and long-reach, LR, versions) and B110C.
