This week we take a look at the future of backhoe loaders and why you should consider investing into this particular type of construction equipment.


Now we can all predict what we think may happen in years to come, however the backhoe loader forecast is looking very healthy. 

The number of construction projects is rising, which will have a direct impact on construction companies needing to use a backhoe loader in particular. It has been predicted that the backhoe loader market will witness a 1.5 times over to cross the $1.9 billion mark by 2026.

This is fantastic news for big name manufacturers such as JCB, Komatsu, Caterpillar and many more! 


As the demand for backhoe loaders increases, the availability of rental equipment decreases. Therefore making the option to buy a JCB and other plant equipment favourable in this case. Not only that, we can give you plenty of reasons why you should invest in a JCB backhoe loader too.

JCB is the ultimate, undisputed leader of backhoe loaders, and customers who choose to buy a JCB backhoe loader will benefit massively from their purchase.


Originally developed to provide an immense amount of power and efficiency on construction sites and also small areas, the JCB 3CX is fantastic for most projects.

We can’t talk about benefits without mentioning the productivity of the 3CX. Operators can enjoy working for longer periods without the need to re-fuel as often. Plus the engine has been designed to offer lower emissions and noise levels. 


Construction equipment needs to be simple to use, especially in various locations. The JCB 3CX demonstrates great mobility which is clearly proven on both the road and construction sites. An operator can easily switch between 2WS and 4WS. Therefore allowing for safe use on the road, and transporting goods on site. Additionally, the JCB 3CX has been designed with a three-speed 40km/h hydrostatic transmission. Operators have a large working radius, without needing to depend on other equipment to transport the machine.


Not only is the machine versatile on its own, but with the assistance of backhoe loaders, and even skid steer attachments, the JCB 3CX could be unstoppable! 

Using various digger attachments such as buckets, fork carriages, or even an auger, can allow an operator to use a backhoe loader instead of utilising extra equipment. This could mean saving money as you won’t need to think about acquiring a dumper or telehandler for example. 

If you’re looking for digger attachments to fit your backhoe loader, then our sister company, Masterhitch Europe Ltd will be able to help you out!


There’s nothing complex about controlling a JCB 3CX. At a touch of a button, the backhoe loader can be used at your disposal for the task at hand.
