Backhoe Loader Goes Coast-to-Coast for Charity

Next week JCB launches Backhoes Across America, a 26-day road trip in hopes to raise $1 million for the rebuilding of Haiti.


A JCB 3CX backhoe loader will begin from the beach at Tybee Island, Ga., on Friday, March 26. The backhoe will travel more than 3,000 miles making fundraising stops at JCB dealerships in nine cities. To see a schedule of the stops and for more details log on to


JCB will donate all monies raised directly to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development Fund. Donations can also be made by visiting; click on "Donate Today".


The final destination for this journey is California’s Santa Monica Pier.

Small but mighty, the JCB 3CX is a multipurpose machine with muscle.
In this episode of Discovery Channel's Greatest Ever, a group of experts and engineers named the machine the No. 1 Earthmover.
