JCB has exhibited a range of machines at the CTT/Conexpo show in Moscow, Russia, including new launches that specifically target the Russia/CIS market as well as developing countries in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. JCB unveiled its most powerful backhoe loader the all-wheel steer 5CX powered by a 120hp (88kW) Tier 2 JCB Dieselmax engine. A JCB TorqueLock transmission which is fitted as standard produces fuel consumption savings of up to 25% compared to standard transmissions.
The 5CX has been designed as a flagship model for those markets that demand ultimate digging and loading performance. Russia has a rapidly developing backhoe loader market and customers need a higher horsepower model, capable of faster travel times, quicker loading cycles and increased efficiency. With the 5CX, JCB is once again taking the lead in the backhoe loader sector, delivering the right machine to meet and exceed customers' expectations.
