Following a multi-million dollar investment, JCB has pioneered the high-tech 3CX compact backhoe-loader, which is 35% smaller than the standard model 3CX, though retains all the power and speed of its bigger brother. The 3CX compact combines the digging power and ease-of-use of a compact excavator with the capabilities of a compact wheel loader, yet it is more than simply a digging and loading machine. Backhoe-loader, compact excavator and skid-steer loader attachment compatibility allows the 3CX compact to work with a wide range of attachments and hand-held tools for maximum versatility and utilization.
