Tea-Based World First For New JCB Digger

Everybody loves a digger, but until now there's always been one major flaw in a digger's design - the need to get out of the cab when you want a cup of tea.

However, with JCB's new flagship backhoe loader, the 3CX Eco, those pesky trips to Costa will be a thing of the past, because the new JCB has become the world's first digger with an in-cab hot water dispenser.

So, for your £47,500 not only do you get 325lb ft of torque, a bucket volume of 1.3 cubic metres and a lift capacity of 4638kg, but you also get the capacity to make a brew while you're at it. Try doing that in a nearly new BMW M3...

The new JCB 3CX Eco backhoe loader - get it on your Christmas list now, because on PistonHeads, tea matters.

    Why is it that so many small (male) children love diggers and dinosaurs?

    No idea, but if there's a tractor, digger, excavator or concrete mixer about, we HAVE to look at it!

    I daren't show him that gratuitous image of the JCB with its legs out and breaker attached to the backhoe. He'll explode.
