There really are loads of reasons to choose the JCB 457HT wheel loader. For starters, it’s productive, efficient, easy to maintain and extremely durable. The 8.9-liter 6-cylinder Cummins QSL engine is Stage 3b / Tier 4 compliant. It helps the 457HT front end loader to produce 16% more power – 249-horsepower (186 kW) – and 18% more torque – 800 foot pounds (1,085 Nm) – than the previous 456 model. Of course all JCB front end loaders boast cutting edge technology to boost efficiency still further. On the 457HT, there’s an intelligent clutch cut-off feature that gives maximum hydraulic performance and limits vehicle speed when loading. There’s also automatic idle shutdown, load-sensing hydraulics and a variable speed fan. The JCB 457HT wheel loader also combines comfort, safety and serviceability to make it the perfect all-round package.
