Introduction meets Tier 4 Final standard

By |  April 29, 2015

The 457 wheel loader from JCB features a new cab structure, an engine cover and a rear counterweight design – all of which contribute to improved visibility, lower noise levels, increased internal space and an enhanced working environment for operators, the company says. In addition, the 457 is the first large JCB wheel loader to meet Tier 4 Final standards. The company adopted an MTU diesel engine to match the machine’s operating duties. The engine contributes to fuel savings of about 16 percent compared with the company’s previous model, JCB says. As with other JCB machines, the engine in the 457 meets Tier 4 Final without the need for a diesel particulate filter. In addition, JCB LiveLink allows customers to set work hour curfews, outside of which the machine will not function, along with geofencing.
