NEW JCB ECOMAX TIER 4 ENGINE FUELED TO LAST

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

JCB Construction Equipment Australia (CEA) has brought fuel efficient EcoMax engines to its backhoe loader range, delivering improved efficiencies and setting the standard for the Australian market.
According to Glenn McLeod, JCB CEA National Product Manager for Backhoes, the new EcoMax Stage IIIB/Tier 4i and Tier 4 Final engines offer the latest technology with reduced fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, with the new units tested for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines.

“JCB CEA has tested the latest units in some of the toughest applications and harshest environments. Each JCB engine has cutting edge combustion technology that delivers improved efficiencies and excellent fuel savings,” Glenn says.

The JCB engines do not require a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) so the backhoes retain their low bonnet line for visibility to the wheels and attachments, providing increased operator safety and a more spacious engine compartment to allow for easier maintenance.

Both the JCB EcoMax Stage IIIB/Tier 4i and Tier 4 Final engines boast the new Auto Idle, Auto Throttle and Auto Drive (Automate) features as standard. These features allow operators to pre-set idle modes when switching between excavator and front loader operations, cutting fuel consumption, engine noise and emissions.
“The new standard control panel featured on all Stage IIIB/Tier 4i backhoes allows operators to access a comprehensive menu and view fuel economy data too, and service intervals can still be carried out entirely from ground level without the need to remove side panels or climb access filters,” Glenn says.
“All engine checks are carried out and reported automatically by the engine management system, meaning an end to daily under bonnet checks and faster diagnostics to a first time dealer fix.”
Both models include JCB LiveLink with seven report screens available for operators to view machine utilisation, productivity, travel time, fuel usage, work modes, engine start, run time and carbon emissions.
“The engines are suitable across a range of applications, but particularly for local government and larger civil contractors due to the real time data that is available through JCB’s LiveLink,” Glenn says.
