JCB INDIA has introduced the world’s first backhoe loader equipped with an Automated Manual Transmission. Showcased at the recently concluded Excon 2017, the backhoe loader also comes with 30 innovative features, of which 15 are claimed to be industry firsts. These include a rotary knob gear lever for the AMT which helps reduce operator effort, SOS switch, economy and power modes, guide-me-home functionality and smart app diagnostics.
JCB also introduced their largest made- in-India machine, a 38T Tracked Excavator, in two variants - the 380LC Xtra and 380LC Quarry Master. JCB claims the 380LC QM offers 16 per cent higher lifting capacity, while the Dieselmax engine returns 3 per cent higher fuel efficiency.
