The Advantages of the JCB 3CX


17th October 2022

Henson Plant hire are specialists in the hire of the JCB 3CX digger, commonly known as a backhoe loader. It is well known throughout the construction industry as a titan of work. Being able to tackle almost anything you ask of it. This is where it all started for Henson Plant, 30 years ago so we are well versed in the advantages a machine like this presents, so we thought we would share the advantages of the JCB 3CX so everyone can see why we love it so much.

Great Manoeuvrability
This machine offers a great level of manoeuvrability for the size of the machine. With large rear tyres, it can traverse many different types of terrains with ease, not getting bogged down on rocks or dirt. This also allows it to work in compact spaces, including low-level buildings and to enter small construction sites.

Lower Emissions & Noise Levels
The JCB 3Cx is equipped with a powerful engine, enough to drive the wheels and of course tackle any work you require of it. But the efficiency of the engine uses less fuel, allowing for lower emissions and lower noise levels. Meaning you don’t need to fill up as often and can spend more time being productive.


Easy to Operate
At first glance this machine might look daunting to someone for the first time, however, it can be quite simple. At the touch of a button, you can control the speed of this easy-to-operate tool carrier. With any Henson hire, we can show you how to operate the machine, so you have peace of mind.

Interchangeable attachments
As we’ve mentioned the JCB 3CX is one of the most versatile machines out there. This is partly due to that it is fitted with a quick hitch, allowing different attachments to be fitted with ease. This means that this one machine is capable of so many different tasks, you may not need to hire another machine. This can include, transporting building materials, digging holes, excavating, landscaping, breaking asphalt and paving roads.

The JCB 3XC has so many advantages we could probably write an entire book, but we’ve given you four of our favourite ones. We have used the JCB for 30 years and it continues to be one of our favourites. If you like the look of the JCB 3XC, then head over to our contact page and get in touch.
