Among the design enhancements, New Holland’s six new B Series backhoe loaders feature curved booms and flip-up hoods. The curved boom lowers a machine’s transport height by 6 inches, and allows for greater digging forces and digging depths. With all daily maintenance check points accessible at ground level, the one-touch flip-up hood eases machine serviceability. Each model in the B Series is equipped with New Holland engines by FPT, entirely Tier-3 certified with claimed increased fuel economy and lower emissions.
JCB’s 3CX and 4CX backhoe loaders now come standard with the company’s Tier 4-Interim Ecomax diesel engines, delivering up to 9 percent better fuel consumption and a 6 percent boost in torque, the company says.
Cat 450F backhoe loader is a four-wheel-drive unit powered by a Cat C4.4 diesel meeting Tier 4-Interim standards. Gross power is increased 5 percent, and torque 30 percent, to 396 lb.-ft.
