Backhoe Loaders

It’s no wonder that JCB backhoes are by far the most popular throughout Africa and the rest of the world (almost half of all backhoes on the planet are JCBs). We were, after all, the first company to develop the concept of a backhoe loader, way back in 1953, and we’ve led the way in backhoe design ever since.

By employing advanced engineering principles, we expanded the machine’s capabilities and many of our leading innovations have since become standard features on backhoe loaders throughout the industry. Four-wheel drive, extending dippers, torque converter drive, powershift transmissions, all-wheel steer, sideshift chassis, powerslide and skid steer are all JCB world firsts.

As a result of this pioneering approach, all JCB backhoe loaders are productive, dependable, efficient and comfortable.

They also benefit from the full support of JCB’s Africa network, meaning you can count on all the dealerships, expertise and parts backup you need.
