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.
Many JCB innovations have become industry standard features, including four wheel drive, extending dippers, lock up torque converters, Powershift transmissions, all wheel steer, sideshift chassis, powerslide and skid steer.
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.
