Self Drive and Operated Hire

With one of the largest fleets of backhoe loaders in the Yorkshire area we are able to supply next working day delivery to areas including Hull, Immingham, Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Lincoln, Sheffield, Doncaster, Castleford, Goole, Selby, York and Scarbrough.

Over the years the backhoe loader has been refined to become extremely versatile.  A professional operator who has the knowledge and expertise to be able to use the extradig, power, 6-in-1 and forks to his advantage makes the backhoe a great choice when on a tight budget.  

The JCB 3cx is the world's number one backhoe loader. The 3cx is a product of JCB's efficient design philosophy, responding to today's rising fuel prices and environmental concerns with class-leading efficency and low running costs. JCB has applied innovative technologies to squeeze the absolute maximum out of every drop of fuel on the 3cx Eco.

In a typical roading, loading, excavating and idle cycles, the 3cx Eco backhoe loader, equipped with a 63kW Dieselmax engine delivers an average fuel saving of up to 16%, plus lower emissions and noise levels. And, with extended periods between fill ups, you benefit from a longer, more productive working day.

Efficiency:  JCB have developed EcoDig, a standard fitment three-pump hydraulic system that allows the same high hydraulic flow and pressure but at lower engine speeds, for up to 15% improvement in fuel economy when excavating.

The 3cx Eco has a patented Torque-Lock technology (the world's first lock-up torque converter fitted to a backhoe loader), EcoRoad reduces fuel consumption by up to 25%, yet increases both speed and working area up to 10%.

Another feature is the Hydraulic Speed Control (HSC), which automatically disconnects the first hydraulic pump when in fourth gear. This reduces fuel consumption still further.

Build Quality:  The 3cx Eco has been tested in all climates, including arctic conditions. On the production line every new 3cx Eco is put through around 600 performance checks.

Hydraulic hoses are approved to work down to -40° and all 3cx materials are tested to extreme temperatures and exposed to chemical, salt, oil and sunlight to ensure maximum protection.
