JCB’s pedigree in backhoe loaders stretches back to 1953 when the company first pioneered the machine. The wraps have now come off ‘the most efficient JCB backhoe loader ever’, offering customers average fuel savings ranging from six to 16% at typical daily work rates, largely achieved through the introduction of a new EcoDig system incorporating three hydraulic pumps.
The machines benefit from a host of new features including:
Improved cab for greater comfort
New heated front screen
An in-cab hot drinks machine
Power brakes providing proportional braking and fuel economy improvements
Combined hammer and bi-directional circuit for excellent versatility in attachment use
A nine metre factory-fitted hose reel for improved productivity and versatility

Tim Burnhope said: “JCB has been at the forefront of backhoe design for almost 60 years and through innovation we continue to raise the bar and offer our customers machines which have superior performance and are more cost efficient and comfortable to operate.
“The new generation of JCB backhoe loader represents a significant investment and the result is JCB’s most efficient backhoe loader ever which has been designed with fuel economy firmly in mind. Whether loading, roading or digging JCB’s latest generation of backhoe offers the customer a machine that works harder but uses less fuel.
