JCB demoing backhoes and compact loaders at 2019 GIE+EXPO landscaping show
JCB will exhibit the all-new 1CXT compact backhoe loader, the 18Z-1 mini excavator, and the 3TS-8T Teleskid compact track loader and 3TS-8W Teleskid skid steer at the 2019 GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Kentucky, from October 16 to 18.
In addition to seeing JCB's products at the company's indoor booth (#11204), attendees can operate the machines in JCB's outdoor demonstration arena (#7714D), to gain first-hand understanding of how the JCB's unique, compact machines can boost productivity, efficiency and profits for landscaping professionals. Additionally, attendees who demonstrate a JCB machine will receive a $500 savings voucher to put toward the purchase of any new JCB machine.
"The JCB machines on display at GIE+EXPO are unlike other products on the market. They provide landscaping professionals with the performance, maneuverability and transportability they demand, and innovative capabilities that will help them outperform their competition," said Ashby Graham, general manager for Product at JCB North America. "We're looking forward to lots of landscaping pros putting the machines to the test in the JCB demo arena. Once they have a chance to try the machines for themselves, we know they're going to see the potential to transform their business."
The 1CXT compact backhoe loader was launched by JCB earlier this month. It has a 60 percent smaller footprint than a full-size backhoe loader yet delivers impressive performance for landscaping applications. It is the only tracked backhoe loader in North America – delivering superior climbing capability, pushing power, stability and soft ground performance – and offers loader bucket breakout force up to 5,180 lbf (2,350 kgf) and maximum dig depth of 10 feet 1 inch (3.08 m). And with a transport weight under 9,600 pounds (4,354 kg), the 1CXT can be towed between jobsites without a Commercial Driver's License (subject to local regulations).
The JCB Teleskid is the world's only skid-steer and compact track loader with a telescopic boom. JCB says that this allows it to lift higher, reach further and dig deeper than any skid steer on the market. The 3TS-8W wheeled skid-steer model has a rated operating capacity of 3,208 pounds and the 3TS-8T compact track loader model has a rated operating capacity of 3,965 pounds. Both models offer 13 feet 3 inches of lift height, 8 feet of forward reach and a dig depth of 3 feet. Since its launch in March 2017, the Teleskid has received more industry awards for product innovation than any skid steer or compact track loader in history.
The 18Z-1 is JCB's first zero tailswing machine in the 1- to 2-ton excavator class, with an operating weight of 3,856 pounds (1,749 kg). It is designed for maximum reliability and durability, with features such as all-steel bodywork and 500-hour greasing intervals to minimize operator burden and reduce downtime.
