To prevent any movement from the Loader or backhoe the hydraulic controls are neutralised and cannot be activated with the engine started until the operator has acknowledge the functions.
The 5CX PRO exclusively offers a 6-speed auto Powershift transmission with a patented lock up torque converter offering exceptional loader and roading characteristics and reduce fuel burn. The front and rear axles feature auto locking limited slip fitted as standard equipment offering exceptional tractability.
The Smooth Ride System (SRS) is fitted as standard equipment. The Smooth Ride System consists of a dry nitrogen and oil filled accumulator installed in line with the loader lift cylinders. When activated, the SRS allows the loader arms to float. This action counteracts variations in road or site surfaces and provides the operator with a smoother and more comfortable ride. The JCB SRS manually controlled, via a rocker switch on the instrument panel, for maximum benefit and user flexibility.
The JCB class leading hydraulic power brakes system is fitted as standard and ensures low effort, effective, fade-free braking and the deletion of the master cylinder eliminating the requirement to service and maintain. The self-adjusting, multi-disc arrangement is inboard mounted and is oil immersed for minimum maintenance and a long operating life.
The 5CX has full power hydrostatic steering system utilising the main hydraulic pump via a steering priority valve. In the event of engine failure, emergency steering is maintained. Four equal size wheels with three steering modes which can be activated on the run including front wheel steering, four-wheel steering and crab steer. Steer modes can be selected via the three-position rotary switch on the front dashboard.
The 5CX PRO has a max dig depth of 6.14m. It also offers Hydraulic side shift which JCB pioneered the introduction of in 1999. The JCB system exclusively offers sacrificial wear pads between the king post and slide rails. Furthermore, the hydraulic ram mechanism is located behind the kingpost and does not obstruct the operators view.
The Hydraulic system is a closed centre variable displacement pump with a max flow of 165lpm. The Auxiliary hydraulic lines are a standard factory fit for bidirectional and single directional flow. All of these can be activated from the left-hand joystick. The pilot controls can be easily isolated by a 3-way switch with visual alerts indicating whether the hydraulic system is activated or isolated. To protect all the hydraulic lines JCB have run the lines internally on the boom and dipper to reduce damage. (Except the auxiliary lines) would not mention this.
