JCB 457 Wheel Loader

JCB 457 Wheel Loader

The JCB 457 HT wheel loader is the model of efficiency. Designed to maximize productivity, the 457 is easy to maintain and extremely durable. With a combination of comfort, safety and serviceability features, you may find the 457 to be the perfect all-round machine.

For 2012, the JCB 457—the flagship of JCB’s Wheel Loader lineup—sees a significant boost in horsepower, up 16% to 250 HP and an impressive gain of 18% in torque to 800 lb.ft. When full power isn’t really necessary, the 457 can operate in ECO mode, reducing engine output and fuel consumption.

The Tier 4-Interim engine, drive-train enhancements, and operator-station refinement make the 457 a top choice. Choose Z-bar or parallel loader linkage as needed. JCB’s quick-hitch coupler system accommodates existing buckets and attachments.
