JCB Rough Phones Demo


We stopped by JCB booth not only to see their toughest phones in the business, but also to check out the World’s Fastest Back Hoe. We geek out in many ways…

The Back Hoe goes 60 MPH on paved roads. It has a full suspension system and ABS brakes. Weighing in at 15 tons, this 6.7 liter diesel Back Hoe can lift 2 tons and dig 13 feet deep.

And it can drag a JCB phone for miles…

JCB Toughphones are meant for the worksite. They can be dropped from higher altitudes, smashed into more than the average consumer phone and still be functional. JCB tests all phones to impact, pressure, vibration, temperature, shock and even a Salt spray test!

They even have lightweight phones that float on water. That way if you drop the phone, you are not doing any deep sea diving to go retrieve it.
