JCB in CommandPlus at ConExpo

The new JCB 457 wheel loader is the first machine to show off the company’s new ‘JCB CommandPlus’ cab.

This totally new ROPS structure has A pillars that have been moved out to the same width as the rear of the cab, providing a larger interior with a panoramic front windscreen. The machine features JCB’s Command Driving Position, with revised pedals, a new adjustable steering column and seat-mounted hydraulic controls.

The new 457 features the powerful MTU diesel 7.7-litre MTU Tier 4 Final engine, delivering 193kW (258hp), up from 186kW (250hp) on the previous machine and contributes a massive fuel saving of around 16% compared to the previous model. As with other JCB machines, the engine in the 457 meets Tier 4 Final without the need for a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF).
