JCB launches EasyControl system

JCB has launched a new control system for its 3CX and 4CX backhoe loaders.

Dubbed ‘EasyControl’ the system utilises the same valve block and hydraulic gear pump combination as the manual control machines, but with seat-mounted servo excavator levers.

The machines will retain a manual control lever for the front loader, rather than having the electronic control in the servo lever. The lever also has proportional roller switch for auxiliary functions and operator will retain independent use of both loader and excavator.
