IMPROVED COMFORT AND CONTROL FOR MID-RANGE JCB AGRI LOADERS

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Operators will be able to perform routine service checks without leaving the cab of JCB’s new wheeled loaders, according to Greg Sealey, JCB Construction Equipment Australia (CEA) National Product Manager for Wheel Loaders.

The in-cab service check ability is just one of a host of features on the latest mid-range wheeled loaders from JCB CEA, the 411HT and the 417HT. The new models take on many of the features first seen on the farming flagship 435S Agri and JCB’s other high productivity wheeled loaders.

“The new loaders are powered by the same JCB EcoMAX engine as before – a 4.4-litre generating 81kW (109hp) in the 411HT and 93kW (125hp) in the 417HT,” Greg said.

“These agile loading machines have a commanding central driving position that makes it easy to position and manoeuvre them in the most restricted of working environments.”

The 411HT and 417HT are designed and equipped primarily for hard surface applications, like operating in bulk stores and carrying out routine handling and loading tasks on farms.

“The more spacious new CommandPlus cab brings new levels of information, control and comfort to the JCB 411HT and 417HT, with excellent visibility and improved sound suppression, making it a great place to spend long hours in the driving seat,” Greg said.

“Operators also get a second information screen with integrated remote camera display and CommandPlus Control, which enables in-cab adjustment of auxiliary oil flow, the optional boom suspension system and timing intervals for the reversing fan if fitted.

“Being able to perform daily routine service checks from within the cab not only saves time but encourages operators to regularly make these important checks,” Greg said.

Both models are fitted with an efficient selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system. Together with a ‘clean’ combustion process, this achieves Euro Stage IV / US Tier 4 Final emissions requirements without a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) nor a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF) and the regeneration process often needed to periodically clear such filters.

The 8.7 tonne 411HT also offers operators the JCB High Torque lift arms giving 3.36 metres of load-over clearance with the quick-hitch fitted and a full-turn tipping load of over five tonnes.

Three loader arm choices are available with the 417HT, giving up to 4.2 metre clearance for bale stacking or loading an intake hopper in a feed production or fertiliser blending plant.

Optional hydraulic suspension is available to cushion the arms as the loader travels over a rough surface, improving operator ride comfort and minimising the risk of spillages or a load becoming dislodged.
