The 5CX is fitted with the very fuel efficient JCB Diesel Max engine with very high torque delivery at very low RPM.
The 5CX 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 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.
The JCB 5CX Backhoe is fully ROPS/FOPS compliant for maximum operation (ISO Standard 3471 & 3449 ; SAE J1040 & J231). The in cab air conditioning system on the 5CX Backhoe has excellent capabilities with velocity air flow through 14 individual vents. The cab offers great storage with a large box in cab and also storage behind the operator’s seat.
The 5CX has a fully adjustable heated cloth air suspension seat with lumbar support and 180 degree operation. With exclusive in seat service hydraulic controls unlike our competitors the JCB servo System turns with the seat offering full 180 degree operation of the backhoe. The 5CX features multifunction servo controls for both the loader & backhoe. To enable operators to feel right at home in the 5CX, the control pattern is switchable ISO/SAE control patterns.
The JCB Backhoe has an Auto lock quick hitch as standard with proximity sensor and two stage unlock process. 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 acknowledged the functions.
The instrument panel is positioned to the right hand side for ease of viewing from either the loading or excavating position and has an optional lockable cover for vandal proofing. Engine speed, fuel and coolant temps and gauges are mounted to the panel. A forward and reverse alarm are fitted delete the horn bit. Any critical functions of the machine are monitored by either gauge, visual and audible alarm systems.
