Q: What is your product?
The JCB 457 Wastemaster, a Stage IIIB (Tier 4 Interim)-compliant wheeled loading shovel, purpose built for the waste and recycling industry.
This new machine offers more power, torque and productivity than its predecessors, and is delivered with major fuel savings.
Q: How does it work?
Powerful, efficient, easy to maintain and durable, it is perfect for the tough environment and heavy-duty handling tasks typically found in waste and recycling applications.
Q: Where would it ideally be used?
The JCB 457 Wastemaster is suited to any recycling task requiring large volumes of material to be shifted.
Whether bulk loading, stockpiling or simply tidying, it will prove popular in recycling industries. A variety of model configurations and a vast range of buckets and attachments means the model can be tailored to the exact needs of customers in a range of sectors.
Q: How is it different?
The 457 Wastemaster features a series of innovations to improve performance and produc-tivity. At the heart of the machine is a Stage IIIBcompliant 8.9-litre Cummins engine, the largest engine
used in JCB’s construction equipment range. Another key development is the intelligent clutch cut-off feature that gives maximum hydraulic performance and limits vehicle speed when loading. It automatically diverts maximum power to the loader hydraulics for optimal truck/hopper loading duties.
Q: What benefits does it offer?
The key benefits are excellent fuel efficiency, power and torque, and 186kW (250hp) of power marks an increase of 16% on its predecessor.
At 1,085Nm, torque is up by 18%. The tipping load is increased by 3.3%, which means that an extra quarter of a tonne can be carried in the bucket.
Q: Where has it been used?
Orders have already been received from many waste and recycling operations across the UK and abroad.
Machines have been delivered to transfer stations and MRFs, which are reporting improved levels of productivity when compared with the previous model.
Q Any savings?
The most significant saving is on fuel and, subsequently, cost of ownership. A new economy mode, to reduce engine output for lighter duties, means the 457 can deliver fuel savings of up to 6%. It also has a low idle feature and an engine shutdown mode, which kicks in after a predetermined idle period to save fuel.
Q: What about maintenance?
Build quality, reliability and minimal downtime are at the forefront of the design of all JCB wheeled loading shovels.
Due to the nature of the working environment, Wastemaster models feature even greater protection.
Long service intervals and rugged components come as standard. Service intervals on the engine’s diesel particulate filter are set at 5,000 hours in Europe.
Service, parts and maintenance are all available from JCB’s dealer network.
Q: How is it future-proofed?
The key legislation affecting waste handling equipment is that covering emissions, and the model is Stage IIIB (Tier 4 interim)-compliant.
