22 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | April 2015 JCB Rolls Out Tier-4 Final, Increased Automation on Backhoes JCB has introduced Tier 4 Final engines and a high degree of machine automation for its 2015 backhoe loader model line-up. rough develop- ment of its own award-winning range of Ecomax diesel engines, JCB has achieved the Tier-4F emissions standard without the need for a bulky diesel particulate filter (DPF), reducing cost and complexity for the customer. Both the rental-market 3CX, now built in the U.S. at JCB's Savannah plant, and the popular 3CX-14 model are powered by a 74-hp version of the JCB Ecomax diesel engine. With no change required from the T-4 Interim model, this engine has no DPF or exhaust aer-treatment, cutting maintenance costs. For the first time, the 3CX-14 is offered with the option of a powershi transmission and JCB's Advanced Easy Control (AEC) servo levers. Customers can also specify an air-suspended operator's seat as an option, though this is standard with AEC. e 3CX Super is offered with a T-4F Ecomax engine rated at 91-hp or an optional 109-hp engine, while the range-topping 4CX Super comes standard with the 109-hp engine. Both of these highly efficient motors use Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), with a Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) additive to meet the Tier-4 Final emissions standards, reducing harmful oxides of nitrogen (NOx) by 90 percent. Eight automation features now come as standard on all 3CX Super and 4CX Super backhoes: Auto Smoothride System, Auto Boomlock, Auto Up stabilizers, plus auto return to idle, auto drive, auto throttle, automatic daily checks and automatic engine and cab pre-heat.
