The latest JCB 417 HT wheel loader boast our all-new command plus cab. This unique approach to ergonomics is the result of a radical rethink and a rigorous research programme. Expect best-in-class comfort, visibility, ergonomics and quietness.
Wheel loaders need to spend the maximum amount of time hard at work. We’ve designed the 417 HT wheel loader to do just that, with long service intervals and quality components.
The new 417 HT wheel loader is designed to keep the operator and your worksite safe at all times. Great visibility, non-slip surfaces and full ROPS/FOPS protection are just the start.
Finite element analysis, as well as extensive endurance and rig testing ensure superior structural strength and durability. Cold cell testing guarantees starting performance down to -20˚C.
Precision machining provides high tolerances and accurate location of pins and bushes.
The 411 and 417 can be specified for heavy-duty applications like waste or corrosive material handling.
A solid cast rear counterweight protects the rear of your machine – including the rear lights and cooling pack – from damage.
You can opt for additional guards on the front screen, lights, underbelly and rear grille. For additional protection, there are impact- resistant fender edges and trims fitted.
The articulation joint has a heavy-duty centre pin and oversized bush, as well as twin taper roller bearings on the bottom box joints. This can tolerate both vertical and horizontal loads for durability and rigidity.
Hoses are neatly routed and clamped through the articulation joint, well away from any pinch points. Steering rams are positioned high up and well protected from possible impact and site damage.
These machines have integral steel fluid tanks for the ultimate in leak protection; a far superior solution to the plastic tanks favoured by some competitors.
The EcoMAX 4.4 litre engine achieves maximum engine power (81kW (109hp) in the 411, 93kW (125hp) in the 417) and peak torque (516Nm in the 411 and 550Nm in the 417) at low revs for excellent response.
A variable geometry turbocharger provides increased performance at low engine speed for improved cycle times and tractive effort.
JCB’s optional quickhitch makes attachment changing quick and efficient. The quickhitch is designed to be compatible with aftermarket attachments too.
Powerful hydraulics result in fast cycle times. The 411 features a double gear pump, whilst the 417 model features a single variable displacement piston pump hydraulics which can circulate 123l/min on the 411 and 156 l/min on the 417 for increased productivity and excellent multi- function capability.
So you can perform parallel lifting and use plenty of attachments, both machines are fitted with a high torque (HT) loader arm. This also provides excellent visibility to the attachment at all heights.
Choose from standard lift on either model, or choose high lift (HL) or super high lift (SHL) on the 417 and you can use the machine for higher loading height applications.
With a choice of axle options you can tailor performance to any application.
› Open differentials are ideal for hard standing ground conditions.
› Limited slip differential axles increase tractive effort and are perfect for soft muddy ground conditions.
No DPF means unnecessary additional fuel piping is eliminated as is the potentially dangerous temperatures involved in regeneration. The fuel that would have been needed to restore your DPF can be used instead for actual productive work.
EcoMAX produces high levels of power and torque at engine speeds as low as 1500-1600 rpm for efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
High back-off brakes reduce viscous drag during roading and rehandling, which boosts fuel efficiency.
A viscous coupled engine fan automatically adjusts its speed depending on ambient temperature, optimising cooling, saving fuel and lowering noise.
Operating specialist attachments is easy with an in-cab adjustable proportional auxiliary flow rate.
Our 4-speed transmission gives you a range of gears to suit a wide range of applications. The operator can choose from manual or automatic gear shifting at a press of a button.
Unloaded spool valves in the valve block mean that arms lower under gravitational, not hydraulic force, reducing fuel consumption.
JCB’s innovative variable displacement pump feeds a load-sensing valve block which only consumes power on demand, providing precise, efficient loader control (417 only).
You’ll immediately notice the totally redesigned ROPS structure; this has allowed the A pillars to be moved to the same width as the rear of the cab, providing a larger interior with a superb panoramic front windscreen. All switches and auxiliary controls are now located on the right-hand A-pillar for easier access.
Using your machine’s simple, dedicated menu interface is easily done with an intuitive optional rotary controller.
Operating your 411 or 417 loader is now easier than ever. All of the controls are seat-mounted, even going as far as to move with the seat suspension. You can also select the control system that’s best for your operators: choose from single lever joystick or multi-lever configurations, all using electro-hydraulics for the ultimate in precision.
There are two full colour LCD screens to navigate the operating menus, one of which doubles as a monitor for the optional rear-view camera and CommandPlus control menu.
To keep the operator environment comfortable for working at all times, we’ve positively pressurised the cab to eliminate dust and fumes.
After extensive research into operator ergonomics, we’ve devised the Command Driving Position, which boasts the very optimal control layout for a multitude of different driver shapes and sizes available, ranging from an air suspension standard seat to a super deluxe half leather seat, featuring fully adjustable heating and cooling functionality, electrically adjustable lumber support and adjustable dampers.
A set and forget feature makes operator access even easier. In short, your preferred steering wheel position is stored and can be instantly returned to, even after you’ve folded the wheel away.
Specify your 411 or 417 with either air conditioning or automatic climate control to create perfect working temperatures.
With a dedicated media port on board, you can be assured of superb connectivity for all your electronic devices.
A sliding window on both sides of the cab allows easy communication with people outside the machine.
The optional electronic handbrake offers numerous advantages: it’s quick and easy to operate, and, because there’s no cable, there are fewer holes in the cab. This helps to isolate the operator environment further.
Gain access to the engine bay and cooling pack areas easily with the compact single piece bonnet.
Accessing the diesel and DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) tanks is similarly straightforward. Both filler points are separated to avoid accidental crosscontamination when refilling.
You can check washer fluid level, engine oil and coolant from inside the cab, with all other routine checks and grease points located at ground level. This makes life both easier and safer.
Most Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engines use a costly Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that can cost a lot of money and time when it needs replacing. The EcoMAX engine is DPF-free, reducing your servicing and running costs.
With the optional auto lubrication kit, your machine will take care of its own greasing requirements.
The CommandPlus cab relays machine condition giving real time alerts, safeguarding both the machine and operator.
The intuitive CommandPlus “help function” provides the operator with meaningful descriptions of the incab switch function. Using the “?” button, this allows new or unfamiliar operators to quickly and easily understand machine functions without having to refer to the operators manual.
To prove how good EcoMAX engines are, we’ve tested them for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines across the toughest applications and environments.
Full hydraulic dual circuit braking with multiple oil immersed discs gives the braking system a virtually maintenance-free lifespan.
A cyclonic engine fan scavenge filter provides four times the filtering capacity of a standard air filter. It’s a longer life system, with fewer components and a higher level of efficiency, making for better engine protection. There’s a large 116-litre fuel tank fitted, with optional 111 litre auxiliary fuel tank, which ensures maximum working hours between refills.
Our optional rear-view camera displays an unobstructed rearward view on the in-cab colour monitor.
Superb visibility in dark conditions is guaranteed with JCB’s optional LED worklights.
Interior mirrors, heated exterior mirrors and bonnet mirrors combine to offer excellent views to every corner of your machine, whilst the red and white chevron counterweight option aids machine visibility to passing vehicles and bystanders.
Access steps on the 411 and 417 are inclined and equally spaced, complemented by well positioned grab handles for three points of contact at all times.
Full fender coverage flaps have been carefully designed to keep forward spray to a minimum for all tyre options. This increases safety and decreases debris build-up. The battery and tool box are lockable for added security.
The cab is isolator-mounted, compliant with ROPS/FOPS standards, and positively pressurised against dust. You can choose from fresh air and carbon filters as well.
Engines fitted with a DPF can pose an increased fire risk because extreme heat can be created in regeneration mode. The new 411 and 417 don’t use DPFs, so this is no cause for concern.
Non-slip walkaways and additional grab handle options allow for safe movement around the machine.
