JCB debuted its wheeled loader design, complete with all-new JCB CommandPlus cab.
The JCB 457ZX Wastemaster is the first machine to show off the new cab structure, engine cover and rear counterweight design, all of which contribute to improved visibility, lower noise, increased internal space and an enhanced working environment for the operator.
It is the first large JCB wheeled loader to meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards. Its 7.7-litre MTU diesel engine contributes to a fuel saving of around 16% compared with the previous model.
JCB also displayed its new 5CXWM backhoe loader, suitable for household waste recycling centres, transfer stations, sorting, shredding or baling facilities. The machine can perform a variety of roles, eliminating the need for other machines such as forklifts or pallet trucks.
The model incorporates extra length rear stabilisers and a front frame or waste multi-shovel with top grab, both incorporating hydraulic legs. This combination raises the entire machine well clear of the ground, offering good views into a bin, shredder or baler when compacting or loading material with a selector grab, jaw bucket or dedicated compaction wheel.
Other attachments are available, including selector grabs and bale grabs.
The third machine on show was the TLT 35D 4x4 Teletruk (above), powered by a JCB Diesel by Kohler engine.
JCB also used the show to launch a free best practice guide to choosing and buying machines for recycling and waste management facilities, highlighting key areas: engine innovations, cab design, strength, safer operations, specialist options and attachments, telematics and easier maintenance.
