JCB Type 457 wheel loaders will be powered by Series 1000, 6-cylinder inline engines from MTU, a Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG brand. Generating 193 kW, the MTU drive units incorporate exhaust gas recirculation and selective catalyst reduction technology that allows the new series-production machines to meet EU Stage IV and EPA Tier 4 final emissions regulations.

"We chose this compact and powerful MTU engine because it gives us fuel savings, contributing to a 16% reduction over the previous generation. The unit's high power density also means additional savings on space," a spokesman for JCB said.

The MTU 6R 1000 is part of the newly developed engine generation in the sub-560 kW power range. Even at low speed, Series 1000 to Series 1500 engines produce high torque which they maintain over a wide speed range.

JCB 457 wheel loaders operate at mines, gravel pits and waste-disposal sites and are used for transporting heavy and bulky loads.
