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 SK25 is a new model for Kobelco, and the SK17 has been upgraded. Dig depths are 9 feet 2 inches and 7 feet 3 inches, respectively.

ASV will relaunch its Posi-Track loaders, beginning with three new compact track-loader models that are manufactured in the company’s Grand Rapids, Minn., facility.

The L Series backhoes loaders includes six models: 310L EP, 310L, 310SL, 310SL HL, 315SL and 410L.

The 100C-1 is a 10-metric-ton conventional-tail-swing compact excavator based on the frame of the recently released 8.6-metric-ton 86C-1 compact machine, but with a more powerful engine, larger dig end and increased hydraulic capacity to boost performance.
