JCB launched the special edition models last year to coincide with the production of the 750,000th backhoe loader. And now, Plant Hire and Groundworks contractor E.T.W Plant Hire has purchased the historic machine – a 3CX model.
“We are delighted to purchase this special edition 3CX backhoe loader and we understand it is the very first special edition model to be delivered in North Wales!
Our very first JCB machine was a 3CX, which we purchased in 2004. 17 years on and we still believe JCB’s backhoe loaders are the best on the market, so it is great to be able to make another purchase of such a special backhoe loader.”
Edryn Thomas Williams / E.T.W Plant Hire Director and Owner
“The machine is already out with customers supporting construction sites across North Wales and our customers are happy with the general easy operation of the 3CX. We supply to a range of customers, from contractors within the construction industry to the trade and DIY market and a machine like this is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to work smart.”
With lots of new and advanced features, the 55kW 3CX Special Edition backhoe is fitted with a new Stage V compliant engine. The machine delivers operator comfort and ease of use, increased productivity and performance, combined with a reduced total cost of ownership, making it a great choice for customers.
