Backhoe Loaders


At more than 60 years of age, JCB’s iconic backhoe loader is as fresh and innovative today as when it was first conceived. Since the invention of the backhoe by JCB in 1953, we have continued to innovate, pushing the boundaries and providing real solutions to customer needs.

Today we’re the biggest selling manufacturer of 180s on the planet, with nearly half of all backhoes sold being a JCB. A large part of our success is that we’ve listened to what our customers want, and we’re always striving to produce the most productive, reliable and efficient machines on the market.

In tough market conditions, we're also attaching importance to the things that matter most and can make a big difference to the success of our customers, such as versatility, residuals and fuel efficiency.

The smallest backhoe loader in our range is the 1CX. At just 1.4 metres wide, with the ability to turn on its own axis due to its Skid Steer design, it can operate in virtually any environment. It’s fitted with a universal quickhitch and full side-shift capability too.

Meanwhile our range-topping JCB 3CX Eco and JCB 4CX Eco are, quite simply, the world’s most efficient backhoe loaders for typical duty cycles. TorqueLock provides a fuel saving of up to 25% when roading, and our EcoDig, EcoLoad and EcoRoad systems are designed to save you even more.

JCB attachments are all designed and manufactured to be perfectly matched to your machine. Using only the finest raw materials, maximum usefulness can be achieved with a choice of over 160 backhoe loader attachments. From buckets and shovels to snow blades, ripper teeth and earth drills, there is a loader or back-mounted attachment for every job, in every industry.

Additionally, Backhoes can power a wide selection of handheld tools and pumps. So from digging to breaking, loading to snow clearing, you’re able to utilise your JCB all year round.

“We run one of the youngest, most advanced fleets in the market to ensure we give our customers the high level of service they demand. The JCB Loadall product is first choice on a construction site, certainly from an operator’s point of view. The 24 hour parts and service back-up we get from Holt JCB is exceptional and means downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.”
