- The JCB 417 loading shovel can be specified for heavy-duty applications like waste or corrosive material handling. Auxiliary flow rate is also fully adjustable on the move for precision attachment control; you can even select constant flow for rotary attachments.
JCB’s award-winning EcoMAX 4.4-litre engine delivers 93 kW (125 hp) and 550 Nm in this wheel loader; a variable geometry turbo offers increased performance at low engine speeds for improved cycle times and tractive effort.
With a choice of axle options you can tailor your JCB 417 to any application. Open differentials are ideal for hard standing ground conditions, while a limited slip differential is perfect for soft, muddy terrain with reduced traction.
Clever JCB electronic management can disconnect the clutch via the brake pedal for efficient, productive wheel loader operation. By controlling tractive effort through the transmission, this feature channels maximum power to the loader, reducing service brake wear and fuel consumption.
The JCB 417 loading shovel’s variable displacement piston pump delivers a 156 l/min flow rate for ultimate multitasking.
So that you can perform parallel lifting and use plenty of attachments, there’s a high torque (HT) loader arm fitted to this wheel loader, with the option of a Super HT arm for high-up applications like hopper and lorry loading.
We’ve made sure that forward visibility on the JCB 417 is excellent, while our optional quickhitch makes attachment changing easy and efficient (even with aftermarket attachments).
- Access steps are inclined and equally spaced, complemented by well positioned grab handles for three points of contact at all times.
The 417 loading shovel offers uncompromised visibility; our EcoMAX engine doesn’t require bulky exhaust after-treatment, so it’s extremely compact, housed beneath a sloping rear bonnet with the exhaust silencer and air intake filter both out of sight.
The cab on this wheel loader is isolator-mounted, compliant with ROPS/FOPS standards, and positively pressurised against dust. You can choose from fresh air, carbon and P3 – HEPA recirculation filters as well.
The JCB 417 loading shovel has interior mirrors, heated exterior mirrors and bonnet mirrors for superb all round visibility. Our optional rear camera displays an unobstructed rearwards view on an in-cab colour monitor.
An in-cab electronic two-stage quickhitch isolation protects against uncontrolled release of attachments.
Regardless of which wheels and tyres you use on your loading shovel, both the front and rear of your machine will be protected by full bumpers that are integrated into the strong chassis.
- Quick, easy access to the engine bay and cooling pack are ensured with the 417 loading shovel’s large single piece bonnet. Ground level daily check and grease point access makes life even easier and safer.
Because EcoMAX uses innovative JCB Clean Burn Technology, it’s Tier 4i/Stage 3B compliant without needing after-treatments like DPF or SCR. In turn, that means there’s no need for additional AdBlue fluid level maintenance, reducing servicing and running costs.
The wide-core single faced cooling pack delivers maximum performance and lets small materials pass through for less cleaning. A cyclonic air cleaner and air intake scavenge system reduce debris build up in the air filter, extending service intervals further.
The electronic monitoring system relays machine condition in real time alerts, safeguarding both the JCB 417 wheel loader and its operator.
With the optional auto lubrication kit, your loading shovel will take care of its own greasing requirements.
Full hydraulic dual circuit braking with multiple oil-immersed discs gives the 417 wheel loader’s braking system a virtually maintenance-free lifespan.
- The Tier 4i EcoMAX engine in the JCB 417 loading shovel uses less fuel than our Tier 3 engines, saving you money. What’s more, it doesn’t use exhaust after-treatment, meaning there’s no need for costly heat-resistant lube oils.
EcoMAX produces high levels of power and torque at low engine speeds for fuel efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics. The engine can also run on lower-grade fuels, allowing you to resell your machine in different territories for improved residuals.
High back-off brakes reduce viscous drag during roading and rehandling, which boosts fuel efficiency on your loading shovel.
The variable displacement pumps on the 417 feed a load-sensing valve block which only consumes power on demand, providing precise, efficient loader control.
The JCB 417 wheel loader’s viscous coupled engine fan automatically adjusts its speed depending on ambient temperature, optimising cooling, saving fuel and lowering noise.
Our regenerative dump circuit improves cycle times on this wheel loader; it also improves economy by reducing hydraulic power consumption. Not only that but the adjustable proportional auxiliary flow rate makes using specialist attachments easy.
- To prove how good our EcoMax engines are, we’ve tested them for 110,000 hours in 70 different machines – including loading shovels – across the toughest applications and environments.
Finite element analysis and rig testing ensure superior structural strength and durability, while robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques achieve the very highest levels of quality. Cold cell testing guarantees starting performance down to -20°C.
To protect the bonnet, recessed rear lights and cooling pack of this wheel loader from impact damage, we’ve fitted a full-width rear counterweight.
The hydraulic tank and fuel tank on a JCB 417 wheel loader are both integral to the chassis, providing protection as well as structural strength.
The articulation joint has a heavy-duty box section – much stronger than a single plate with a boss – and for protection, hoses are neatly routed and clamped through the articulation joint. Steering rams are high up and well guarded from damage.
Precision machining provides high tolerances and accurate location of pins and bushes; the articulation joint has a heavy-duty centre pin and oversized bush, as well as twin taper roller bearings, which can tolerate both vertical and horizontal loadings.
