UK debut for JCB wheeled loader
JCB’s newly-launched 419S Agri wheeled loader will be on show for the first time in the UK at next month’s Grassland & Muck event. Premiered at the French SIMA show recently, power to the 419S Agri (replaces the current 418S Agri) comes from a 6.7-litre Cummins six-cylinder engine. Peak power is up 5% to 183hp and the engine meets latest emissions rules using only an AdBlue injecting SCR system and DOC – no particulates filter is needed.
The ZF six-speed powershift provides torque converter lock-up in all gears for silage clamp-climbing, and a top road speed of up to 48km/hr. An all-new front and rear chassis design, longer wheelbase and bigger axles enable larger tyres to be fitted, and the 419S Agri can run on the same 750/65 R26s fitted to the flagship 435S Agri. The new axles are available with limited slip differentials front and rear, and a new auto locking diff can be installed on machines likely to operate in challenging conditions. The front end can be equipped with standard and high lift loader arms, load-over heights range from 3.48m to 3.71m and the newcomer has a full-turn tipping load of almost 6.9 tonnes.
The cab is 15% bigger than the previous design, and new controls provide in-cab adjustment of auxiliary oil flow, the speed at which the optional boom suspension engages, and timing intervals for the auto-reversing engine fan option to suit different conditions. An integrated remote camera display is also available. Both the new joystick and multi-lever hydraulic control feature a thumb-operated shuttle switch and provide proportional control of all loader functions.
Elsewhere on the site, JCB’s new Loadall 536-60 Agri Pro telescopic handler will also be on show in the UK for the first time. Powered by a 4.8-litre, 145hp version of the firm’s EcoMAX engine, and fitted with the all-new DualTech VT transmission, the 536-60 weighs about a tonne less than the equivalent 7m Loadall introduced last year but still has a lift capacity of 3,600kg to a full height of 6.2m.
The 536-60 has a premium spec cab and controls and the firm’s Smooth Ride Suspension for the boom. Finally, JCB’s new TM320S telescopic wheeled loader and Fastrac 8000 tractor can be seen in action for the first time at a public event.
