Command Plus cab for four more JCB loaders
JCB is updating its wheeled loaders
JCB is updating four of its wheeled loading shovels, introducing DNA from the range-topping 457 that was launched last year. The 427 and 437, along with the smaller 411 and 417, will all use a version of JCB’s CommandPlus cab. With B pillars moved out to the same width as the rear of the cab, the CommandPlus delivers a panoramic view to the working area. JCB’s Command Driving Position , with revised pedals, an adjustable steering column and seat-mounted hydraulic controls, further improves the driving environment. Switches and auxiliary controls have been repositioned on the right hand B pillar, providing simplified control and easy access to all control functions, with large LCD screens delivering operating data and a monitor for rear-view cameras.
The smaller 411 and 417 loaders are powered by JCB’s EcoMax Tier 4 Final/Stage IV diesel engines, delivering 81kW (108hp) and 108kW 9125hp) respectively. The heavier 427 and 437 make use of Cummins Stage IV engine producing 133kW (179hp) and 136kW (183hp). In line with the firm’s current policy, all of these engines meet the current emissions standard without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF), reducing operating costs for the customer.
The Stage IV loaders feature a single-piece engine cover that can be electrically or manually lifted to provide improved service access to the engine and cooling pack. A range of loader arms is available, with optional Wastemaster packages for waste handling duties.
