JCB 411HT & 417HT ag load­ers

JCB Con­struc­tion Equip­ment Aus­tralia (CEA) has launched the 411HT (pic­tured) and 417HT mid-size wheel load­ers, which it says has been built for hard-sur­face ap­pli­ca­tions such as op­er­at­ing in bulk stores or load­ing tasks on farms.

Both of the new mod­els are pow­ered by a 4.4-litre JCB EcoMAX diesel en­gine con­fig­ured to Stage IV/Tier 4 emis­sions stan­dards, with the 411HT push­ing out 81kW and the 417HT ca­pa­ble of 93kW.

JCB says the Stage IV/Tier 4 stan­dard was reached with­out the need for a diesel par­tic­u­late fil­ter by us­ing a se­lec­tive cat­alytic re­duc­tion sys­tem.

The 8.7-tonne 411HT is fit­ted with JCB high-torque lift arms, which give the ma­chine a load-over clear­ance of 3.36m, with a full-turn tip­ping load of just over five tonnes. With its larger sib­ling, the 9.4-tonne 417HT, there are three loader arm op­tions giv­ing op­er­a­tors a clear­ance of up to 4.2m, mak­ing it ideal for bale stack­ing or load­ing feed hop­pers.

Op­tional hy­draulic sus­pen­sion is avail­able to cush­ion the arms as the loader trav­els over a rough sur­face, im­prov­ing ride com­fort and min­imis­ing the risk of spillages or a load be­com­ing dis­lodged.

“Th­ese ag­ile load­ing ma­chines have a com­mand­ing cen­tral driv­ing po­si­tion that makes it easy to po­si­tion and ma­noeu­vre them in the most re­stricted of work­ing en­vi­ron­ments,” JCB CEA na­tional prod­uct man­ager Greg Sealey says.

In­side the cab of the new mod­els, the seat and con­trols have been er­gonom­i­cally po­si­tioned to re­duce stress on the op­er­a­tor, re­gard­less of their in­di­vid­ual sizes.

The fully ad­justable air-sus­pen­sion seat fea­tures elec­tron­i­cally con­trolled lum­bar sup­port.

The po­si­tion of the steer­ing wheel is also ad­justable, and op­er­a­tors can save their pref­er­ences into the loader’s mem­ory to in­stantly re­turn the wheel to the pre­ferred po­si­tion.

The mod­ern cab de­sign also al­lows the op­er­a­tor to con­duct rou­tine ser­vice checks from in­side the cab, sav­ing time and im­prov­ing safety.

“The more spa­cious new Com­mandPlus cab brings new lev­els of in­for­ma­tion, con­trol and com­fort to the JCB 411HT and 417HT, with ex­cel­lent vis­i­bil­ity and im­proved sound sup­pres­sion, mak­ing it a great place to spend long hours in the driv­ing seat,” Sealey says.

“Op­er­a­tors also get a sec­ond in­for­ma­tion screen with in­te­grated re­mote cam­era dis­play and Com­mandPlus Con­trol, which en­ables the in-cab ad­just­ment of aux­il­iary oil flow, the op­tional boom sus­pen­sion sys­tem and tim­ing in­ter­vals for the re­vers­ing fan if one is fit­ted.

“Be­ing able to per­form daily rou­tine ser­vice checks from within the cab not only saves time, but en­cour­ages op­er­a­tors to reg­u­larly make th­ese im­por­tant checks.”
