I don't remember where I got this pic from but it is supposedly a JCB. Can anybody back this up?

It sure looks like the old JCB's. I don't know who else had a backhoe with HUGE:eek: flat fenders like that!!
BTW....what is that new avatar that you have countryboy?

Thats a Claas tractor from Europe. :yup

Heres some more:
I still think that's an early JCB probably from around 1962... I think if you look closely at the boom you can see their old 'JCB' logo. I don't think the pic is very old though because the car is pretty modern (looks like a British Rover?)

I can't say so with any authority, but I think it's a JCB too. (I think Countryboy was saying his avatar is a Claas tractor, not saying the backhoe picture is one.)

that is probably a 3C mark 3 looks like its had a bit of a make over tinted glass and a paint job :thumbsup

Agreed its a 3C JCB from possibly the late 70's those things will run forever

Yes, that is a JCB. And you can see the emblem plate on the front loader arm.

Yes Digger, you are correct. Farm boy had asked about my avatar which is what I was describing. Thanks for the clarification. Back to the backhoe...I couldn't remember where I got that picture but when I looked again it says the site on the picture. :Pointhead Although it no longer shows the listing on that particular one, it does have another one, a JCB 3c3. The other was a JCB 3c2.

Very nice, especially that one with the thunder and lightning. :)
I am curious, though, what would happen if some of those European marques came over to the States... Deere's got a nice following in Europe, but you don't see Fendts or Claas (many of 'em, anyhow) here. They certainly look pleasing and like they mean business, but mmm... okay, yes, it's a JCB.
