JCB, the world’s number one backhoe loader manufacturer, today launches its most powerful backhoe loader to date - the all-wheel steer 5CX. The machine has been designed to meet the needs of customers in Russia, and in developing countries in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America and is unveiled at Conexpo is Moscow.
Its key features include:
- A 120hp Tier 2 JCB Dieselmax engine
- A 1.3 m² shovel as standard
- Servo controls as standard with variable flow hydraulics giving fuel savings of up to 10%
- JCB TorqueLock fitted as standard offering fuel savings of up to 25%
Tim Burnhope, JCB’s Chief Innovation and Growth Officer, said: “The 5CX has been designed as a flagship model for those markets that demand ultimate digging and loading performance.
“Russia in particular has a rapidly developing backhoe loader market and our customers there need a higher horsepower model, capable of faster travel times, quicker loading cycles and increased efficiency. With the 5CX, JCB is once again taking the lead in the backhoe loader sector, delivering the right machine to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.
“The 5CX provides a unique specification for our customers that our competitors simply cannot match. It is JCB’s most powerful and productive backhoe loader ever.”
Powered by a Tier 2 compliant JCB Dieselmax engine, the 5CX boasts an output of 118hp (88kW). The high torque, turbocharged and intercooled JCB Dieselmax engine drives through a six-speed Auto Shift transmission, with the firm’s proven TorqueLock transmission delivering up to 25% fuel savings compared to a standard transmission. TorqueLock engages in the higher gears to reduce transmission loss and maintains higher travelling speeds between sites, cutting travel times by up to 10% and reducing fuel consumption.
The 5CX is an equal-sized wheel backhoe loader offering three steering modes; four-wheel, two-wheel and crab steer. This makes the 5CX a highly manoeuvrable and versatile machine, capable of maximum tractive effort and high flotation over difficult terrain. Heavy duty JCB axles with limited slip differentials reduce wheel slip and tyre wear, providing maximum traction on wet and slippery ground. Multi-disc oil-immersed brakes deliver long service life, while class-leading power brakes reduce operator effort.
