The new Backhoe Loader range is powered by the 55kW JCB ecoMax diesel engine. This CEV Stage IV engine is environment friendly and comes with well-proven CRDI technology, a Waste-Gate Turbocharger & a Two-Stage cooling EGR system. The engine has a state-of-the-art combustion system that eliminates the need for any After-treatment, DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) or a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter). It also has no deration at higher altitudes thus benefitting customers and users in mountainous terrain.
JCB India CEO and MD, Deepak Shetty said, “This new range of JCB Backhoe Loaders not only conforms to the latest Emission Standards but will provide our customers with increased reliability, enhanced productivity and reduced operating costs enabling them to improve their profitability. The machines have been tested extensively across the country in all possible applications before their launch.”
The JCB Backhoe Loader is now proven to be even more Fuel-Efficient and Productive. The 3DX Plus CEV Stage IV machine is 7% more fuel-efficient in Eco mode and has 25% higher productivity in Plus mode as compared to the outgoing model. Its features like Auto Idle and Auto stop help to reduce fuel wastage and improve efficiency. Also, a high torque of 400 Nm and three Excavation Modes for different site conditions - Eco, Standard and Plus adds to the machine’s adaptability to meet output needs.
Deepak Shetty informed that since the transition to these new Emission Standards needs a significant step-change in technology, the company has invested immensely in the Training and Skilling of the Dealers and Service Support teams.
The Hydraulic oil change period is now extended from 2,000 hrs to 4,000 hrs and Hydraulic oil quantity reduced by 20 litres. This leads to a 15% lesser cost of periodic maintenance while improving the Total Cost of ownership.
