JCB has comprehensively upgraded its 1CX backhoe loader – the smallest member of its backhoe loader family – with a new appearance, longer loader arms, an extending dipper option, servo controls, a power management system, a revised cab roof trim, improved working lights and sturdy electrical switchgear. The new optional loader arms are 4 inches longer to provide easier loading of site dump trucks. At the rear, an extending dipper option adds up to 20 inches to the digging envelope, taking maximum dig depth to 10 foot. This allows easier load over of trucks, with the backhoe easily able to reach the center of the dump truck. A new Power Management System (PMS) improves performance, reducing engine lug down as the machine starts to dig and increasing power when driving into a pile with the front bucket.
