JCB is to make a high-flow auxiliary hydraulic circuit available for the 3CX Compact backhoe loader — delivering up to 120 liters/min of flow to power a range of loader-mounted attachments.

In addition JCB will launch additional features to enhance the machine including:

  • Second step options for easy cab access
  • Multi-function front loader control
  • Powerslide option allows repositioning without ground damage
  • Skid steer attachment hitch increases work tool availability

  • Additional in cab storage
  • Dipper mounted hydraulic pipework

The 3CX Compact will be available with a high-flow front-end auxiliary hydraulic circuit capable of delivering up to120 litres/min at an operating pressure of 200 bar. This, in combination with the option of a skid steer loader mounting hitch, will allow contractors to operate a wider range of high-flow attachments, such as patch planers and trenchers, on the front of the 3CX Compact, further boosting the versatility of this highly capable machine.

The high-flow circuit will be available with a multi-function, electronic front loader control lever, with integral proportional rocker switches and activation buttons. This will provide increased control of front-mounted attachments, boosting productivity and performance.

The 3CX Compact will be available with an optional Powerslide mounting for the backhoe. This allows the operator to slide the backhoe kingpost smoothly from one side of the machine to the other, without the risk of damage to the ground by pushing the boom across with the bucket. Additional safety options will include a second, lower cab entry step, at 430-440mm from the ground, to provide easier access for operators that move in and out of the cab frequently.

Inside the cab further storage will be provided so operators can stow their belongings safely during a shift.

Following customer feedback, JCB also will offer the 3CX Compact with hammer piping on the dipper arm. Previously the breaker circuit ran to the end of the main boom, but additional piping on the dipper will reduce the chance of snagging hoses during operation.
