Maximum Engine Power
Maximum Loader Capacity
Maximum Dig Depth


Our range of attachments ensures that the JCB 5CX Wastemaster is highly effective for much more than just compaction. These include grabs for handling waste material, a hook for maneuvering bins and a sweeper collector for keeping the site clean and tidy.

Furthermore, the range of purpose-designed bucket options open up a wide array of typical waste re-handling tasks. At the loader end, users can choose between high capacity general-purpose, 6-in-1, or top grab buckets depending on the application and nature of the load. At the excavator end, a hydraulic jaw bucket or selector grab deliver highly effective materials handling capabilities.


Safety on site is enhanced by superb all round visibility from the cab, high visibility stabiliser chevrons, rotating beacon and a reversing alarm. Machine protection is assured with the inclusion of additional boom protection, light guards, fuel tank guard and puncture protected tyres.

The machine uses the most robust loader arms and axles available and features the powerful 109hp (81kW) JCB EcoMAX engine. The road performance and exceptional fuel economy of the 5CX Wastemaster mean that travel between sites is fast, easy and cost effective compared to other equipment.

The JCB 5CX Wastemaster offers unrivalled flexibility at a price which is likely to be lower than the alternative, less versatile machines seen on recycling sites.


Globally, the backhoe loader is already one of JCB’s biggest selling machines into waste, recycling and demolition applications. With large volume sales in Asia and South America and a strong presence in specific European markets, the 5CXWM is now even more suited for your Recycling sites.

This specialist JCB 5CX Wastemaster offers front stabiliser legs and additional length rear stabilisers. This combination raises the entire machine well clear of the ground, offering commanding views into a waste container while compacting material with either a grapple or compaction wheel.
