Development JCB 4CX military
The JCB 4CX is one of a range of commercial backhoe loaders produced by JCB. The JCB 4CXM (M - Military) is a militarised variant of the JCB 4CX, and when designated 4CXMA denotes a cab armouring package is fitted. The 4CX range of backhoe loaders has recently been supplied to Austrian, British, Croatian, Dutch, French, New Zealand, Netherlands and Singaporean armed forces.Following a competitive tender, in 2002 the JCB 4CXM was selected by the British Army to become the new standard Light Wheeled Tractor (LWT), replacing a fleet of Hydrema 906B machines. Full details of the Hydrema range of backhoe loaders can be found elsewhere in this section. 150 4CXM machines were involved in the order, with production running from October 2002 until February 2003. Of the 150 machines delivered eight were fitted with protection kits for Northern Ireland by Penman Engineering, and five were waterproofed and winterised by RDS.These machines are currently being replaced by ALC as part of that company`s 16-year Private Finance Initiative (PFI).
This intention of this initiative is to provide heavy plant equipment for the UK`s armed forces for which the then Amey Lex Consortium was selected as preferred bidder in early 2004. Deliveries run from September 2009 until early 2010 and cover 136 mildly militarised machines, five of which will be waterproofed and winterised.In June 2006 JCB disclosed the sale of 91 4CXMA backhoe loaders to the French Army. These are currently being delivered, with completion due during 2010. These machines are
Description JCB 4CX military
To meet the requirements of various defence procurement agencies, differing degrees of militarisation to the standard 4CX base machine have been undertaken. The standard militarised JCB 4CXM combines the current JCB 4CX platform with the P12 JCB backhoe loader cab, this being both C130 compatible and adaptable to meet armouring requirements. For the non-ALC UK and New Zealand requirements militarisation included a 24 V electrical system with a convoy lighting/blackout system, inter-vehicle start socket, guarded lighting, rifle stowage, diesel refuelling system, tyre inflation system, the option for an internal NBC kit stowage box, 1.5 m fording depth (1 m optional), and the option for a shovel-mounted 7,000 kg winch. The machine is also air transportable by C-130 Hercules and underslung by Chinook helicopter.
To ensure C-130 air transportability the P12 cab is fitted and to achieve the required 2.67 m transport height, tyres are reduced in pressure to 1.6 bar (23 psi). Additionally, five of the UK machines (in the latest ALC purchase) have been winterised for operations at temperatures down to -40°C.For the French requirement militarisation included a 24 V electrical system, rifle stowage, additional equipment stowage, C-130 transportability, and fitting for but not with a small arms fire and blast protection kit. To meet a requirement for a sustainable 40 km/h road speed French Army machines also feature the commercial option of a lock-up torque converter.JCB also produces the 1CX, 2CX and 3CX ranges of backhoe loaders, full details of which can be found elsewhere in this
