JCB Jaw bucket.....

Post #1 by Joes1989 » Sat Oct 02, 2010 5:45 pm

Hi guys,

I saw in the 3CX eco topic that JCB have a jaw bucket option...having never seen one im interested as to what it is? Is it loader or backhoe mounted? Does anyone have any pictures of it?

Am i being really thick and its the 4 in 1?

Cheers

Joe

To be fair, you dont see them that often, its a bucket to go on the back end, and opens up, kind of like the 6 in one on the front.

To be honest it would be a handy piece of kit, but i think the idear of a thumb is more appealing, and probably more productive.

lol, i do see what your saying with the thumb issue being american, but a grapple is great for demo matirials, but a thumb is handy to have when using a bucket and lifting tarmac, especially when you get a slab just a little too large for the bucket, used one on a 3cx once at the factory and im surprised that they are not more popular over here.....mind you, just goes to show, us british guys know how to operate a machine better than the yanks as we dont need a thumb to keep the matirial in the bucket!!!! :lol: :lol:

I no there's a knack 2 pickin up tar that's the type of work I do most of the time digging up tar and kerbs and laying street lighting ducts then reinstating.The jaw bucket would be handy for picking up kerbs and digging road crossings am I right in thinking the hoses would connect to hammer pipes?then would that mean you would lose the use of the extra dig?
