With 7 new Streetmasters for hire-fully lit up for night time working- with extras such as buckets and breakers, we guarentee to have the right tools for the right job!
We selected JCB because in our mind they truly are the only machine for the job when it comes to road maintenance work. In particular, the new 3CX Compact appealed because of the quality of the backhoe operation, an impressive turning circle and versatility of the machine. They perform far better than any competitive equipment we have used to date.
These latest models are the best we have driven. The turning circle is even tighter and the inclusion of excavator controls is excellent – our experienced drivers are finding them really easy to use. We genuinely believe the JCB 3CX Compact is the only machine on the market suitable for the demands of the highways industry.
The brand new JCB 3CX Compact is the perfect machine for road resurfacing and repair contractors, designed to work in the confines of congested urban construction projects.
It is powered by a low emission Tier 4 Final/Stage IIIB JCB Diesel by Kohler engine, delivering 74hp (55kW). This highly efficient engine meets both US and European emissions standards without the need for a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF) or any exhaust after-treatment or exhaust fluid.
The engine drives through a three-speed hydrostatic transmission to all four wheels, for maximum traction in difficult site conditions. The hydrostatic transmission offers a 40km/h top speed for travel between sites. The transmission also features a creep mode, allowing the operator to run at high engine rpm to power high-flow attachments such as road planers, with maximum travel speeds of just 3.5km/h.
An exceptional turning circle of 5.8m braked to the outside of the wheels (6.7m unbraked) makes the machine highly manoeuvrable and easy to operate in tight urban site conditions and capable of turning within a single carriageway. Excavator-style controls are standard in the 3CX Compact, reducing operator effort and increasing controllability.
