They produce over 300 types of machines including backhoes, telehandlers, excavators, wheeled loaders, skid-steer and compact track loaders, rough terrain forklifts and generators. They have over 20 factories spanning the globe and their products are sold in over 150 countries.
Honeycombes offers the iconic JCB backhoe in a range of configurations – almost half of all backhoes sold in the world are JCBs and they are continuously improving this exceptional machine. The backhoe is the ultimate construction machine as it can be driven on the road from site to site, and it incorporates the best features of both excavator and loader into one machine.
After inventing the backhoe loader, JCB also invented the telescopic handler, or Loadall. Both machines have since been copied by numerous companies. The telehandler is such a versatile machine owing to its excellent reach and carrying capacity, coupled with the number of diverse attachments available such as pallet forks, buckets, crane jibs, trenchers, hydraulic grabs, sweepers and power brooms, to name just a few.
The range of JCB skid steer and compact tracked loaders all incorporate industry-leading safety features, including their unique single-arm Powerboom design and side entry door
One of the bestselling points of the JCB machines, is that most of the more popular models utilise JCB’s very own ECOmax diesel engine. This engine has been perfected since it’s release in 2005. As it is common to many machines, parts are almost always in stock.
