My Industry:  Construction

The JCB Midi CX is an incredibly versatile all-in-one compact machine that combines key characteristics of a loader, an excavator and an industrial tractor. A removable excavator with 3-point linkage and Power Take Off (PTO) drive means you can fit an incredible range of tractor-type attachments (mowers, flails, box scrapers, breakers, spreaders, shovels, buckets, augers, pallet forks and more).

Traditional tractor loaders are based on lightweight agricultural machines, whereas the JCB Midi CX has, like the rest of our world-beating backhoe range, a purpose-built durable integrated chassis for even the most heavy-duty construction applications. This makes it perfect for the rental market, not least because it can be transported on a 7.5-tonne plant truck.

The excavator design is based on the JCB 2CX and the Midi CX features twin slew rams, a 4-cylinder 37.3kW engine and a dig depth of 3048mm (10 feet).


The cab of a JCB Midi CX is a safe and ergonomic place to work. ROPS/FOPS rated to level 1 with horn, seatbelt, front/rear wipers, exterior mirrors and adjustable worklights as standard, it also has exceptional controllability built in.

Loader anti spill improves the JCB Midi CX comfort and productivity, while excellent visibility, a hand throttle, 180° turning mechanical seat, 12V Auxiliary power socket, ISO pattern servo excavator controls, 3 speed fresh air/recycle heater, radio location and stereo speakers complete the picture.


The JCB Midi CX is first and foremost an incredibly versatile backhoe loader; this, in turn, makes it an incredible productive one.

Our innovative all-in-one design enables the JCB Midi CX excavator to be easily detached by one person in just a few minutes, revealing a 3-point linkage and Power Take Off (PTO) drive. Added to that are powerful breakout forces, an antispill mechanism for load retention, and auxiliary hydraulics for attachments. Twin slew rams provide excellent backfilling and gradient performance, while a loader quickhitch is compatible with skid steer type attachments.

A limited slip rear differential makes for highly efficient traction on the JCB Midi CX, even in slippery conditions, and creep speed control lets you set the travel speed.


Powering the JCB Midi CX is our 37.3 kW naturally aspirated four-cylinder Tier 3 compliant engine. It’s fuelled from a 60-litre pannier mounted tank for day-long productivity, and mated to a 17.5mph transmission for fast travel between sites. Control is via a column-mounted lever for fast, effortless direction change.

2-range (high/low) hydrostatic transmission eliminates the need to change gear and our 4-wheel drive and automatic limited slip differential give maximum traction. It’s a heavy-duty drivetrain that’s designed to withstand construction site duties.
