JCB Con­struc­tion Equip­ment Aus­tralia (CEA) has launched the 422ZX wheel loader, which the com­pany says has been specif­i­cally de­vel­oped for the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

JCB says the new loader de­liv­ers high lev­els of pro­duc­tiv­ity along with much lower fuel con­sump­tion and run­ning costs.

The loader also has a num­ber of fea­tures geared to­ward the dry and dusty con­di­tions ex­pe­ri­enced in Aus­tralia, such as a re­versible cool­ing fan to pre­vent dust build-up and ad­di­tional belly guards.

“We’ve worked hard to cre­ate a wheel loader that helps keep fuel costs down with­out com­pro­mis­ing on pro­duc­tiv­ity,” JCB CEA wheel loader na­tional prod­uct man­ager Deon Cope says.

“Dur­ing a typ­i­cal duty cy­cle, the 422ZX is up to 26 per cent more fuel ef­fi­cient than other load­ers.

“With proven, durable com­po­nents and ex­cel­lent ser­vice and main­te­nance ac­cess, the JCB 422ZX of­fers cus­tomers a pow­er­ful, ef­fi­cient loader with re­duced op­er­at­ing costs, de­signed and built to per­form in the tough­est op­er­at­ing con­di­tions.”

Weigh­ing in at just un­der 12 tonnes, the 422ZX is pow­ered by a 93kW JCB Diesel­max 4-cylin­der diesel con­fig­ured to US Tier 2 emis­sion stan­dards. The loader’s shovel can take 1.7 cu­bic me­tres of ma­te­rial for a full turn tip­ping load of 6600kg.

“The 422ZX uses proven tech­nol­ogy and com­po­nents for ease of main­te­nance and max­i­mum up­time, in­clud­ing a JCB Diesel­max en­gine, de­liv­er­ing 525Nm of torque for ex­cel­lent dig­ging and load­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties,” Cope adds.

The 422ZX fea­tures a gull­wing bon­net side panel de­sign that al­lows for ground-level main­te­nance.

The fully ROPS/FOPS-com­pli­ant op­er­a­tors cab on the 422ZX fea­tures heat­ing/air-con­di­tion­ing and im­proved all-round visibil­ity.

“An emer­gency steer sys­tem is also fit­ted, al­low­ing for ma­chine re­cov­ery should you lose power, giv­ing op­er­a­tors the abil­ity to steer the ma­chine into a safe area if a mal­func­tion should oc­cur,” Cope says .
