JCB 457 wheel loader

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Field Days -

Be­ing a field days, most of the earth­mov­ing gear was on the smaller side, so this 19.8-tonne JCB 457 wheel loader re­ally stood out.

We liked its large au­to­matic-open­ing sin­gle-piece bon­net and the fact that there’s easy ac­cess to all the key bits for main­te­nance – some­thing we’re see­ing a fair bit of these days.

This well-built beast has a choice of loader arm: Z-bar link­age (ZX) for high break­out ap­pli­ca­tions or high torque (HT) for par­al­lel lift­ing and multi-at­tach­ment work.
