JCB Sets World Record For Backhoe Travel
JCB set a new world record recently with a 26 day, 3,185 mile trip across America. Sure, people have made that trip lots of times, but JCB did it with a 3CX Backhoe Loader. This feat, dubbed “Backhoe Across America,” topped the previous record of 600 miles. The record-setting backhoe trip was driven by Neil Smith, an employee of JCB. The trip took 199.5 hours and hit an average speed of 27mph.
"It’s been an amazing journey," Smith said. "The JCB backhoe performed brilliantly, and it was an incredible way to see the country."
Of course, JCB’s CEO had something to say about this company’s accomplishment too:
"I am proud of the team for completing the rigorous journey and for earning a world record," JCB Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive John Patterson said. "It has been wonderful to see the support we have received not only from this community, but from our dealers and their communities across the country."
