JCB 457 wheel loader has 16 percent more power and 18 percent more torque than its predecessor, the 456. The company’s largest loader has a 250-horsepower Tier 4-Interim diesel delivering 800 lb.-ft. of torque. Intelligent Clutch Cut-Off system allows the engine to provide maximum power to hydraulics, when the operator presses the brake pedal. It also reduces power to the driveline for greater control at lower travel speeds. Open differential axle with optional automatic differential locking provides additional tractive effort without operator input, reducing wheelspin, tire wear, and fuel consumption, JCB says. Full-color LCD monitor and revised instrument panel allow operators to access information through the screen’s intuitive menu system.
Models L60H, L70H, and L90H wheel loaders meet Tier 4-Final standards with a Volvo D6J diesel that delivers 165, 170, and 184 horsepower, respectively.
The Doosan 172-horsepower DL250-5 and DL250TC-5 (tool carrier) wheel loaders replace the “dash-3” (Tier 4-Interim) models, and have a Tier 4-compliant Doosan DL06 diesel engine.
The JCB 67C-1 6.7-metric-ton conventional-tail-swing compact excavator features a Tier 4-Final engine with no DPF, a 30-degree tilting cab, 500-hour greasing intervals, 100-percent steel bodywork, and an easy-to-clean undercarriage.
JCB has developed the 325T ForestMaster, a compact track loader designed specifically to deal with the working conditions found in the forestry, timber and land-clearing industries.
