JCB will begin production in the autumn of two new wheeled loader models to replace the 426 and 436.
JCB says that the new 427 and 437 wheeled loaders will offer “significantly reduced running costs” resulting from improved fuel efficiency and engine technology.
Both new models are powered by a 6.7 litre Cummins QSB engine, which is Stage IIIB (Tier 4 Interim) compliant without using a diesel particulate filter or selective catalytic reduction.
Their launch follows the unveiling earlier this year of the new flagship JCB 457 wheeled loader (pictured below).
New features on the machines include:
•a variable geometry turbocharger delivering improved machine response at low rpm
•engine shutdown mode for enhanced fuel efficiency
•optional five-speed powershift for improved driving performance
•intelligent clutch cut-off system
•automatic differential lock on the front axle
•full colour LCD monitor
•optional climate control.
As well as the variable geometry turbocharger, the Cummins engine incorporates a high-pressure common rail fuel injection system, exhaust gas recirculation and a diesel oxidation catalyst
