Replacing the 456 at the top of the JCB wheeled loading shovel range, the new 457 model will be equipped with a Stage
IIIB (Tier 4 Interim) compliant engine offering increased power and torque and reduced fuel consumption. Improved
transmission options, upgraded axles and robust styling combine with a revised interior to provide a faster, more
productive machine.
New tracked excavators
All of JCB’s tracked excavators have been significantly enhanced with a new cab, improved styling and major efficiency
increases across the range. JCB’s Hillhead line-up will include the new JS360, JS260 and JS220 models which each
receive these upgrades.
As a result of the incorporation of advanced hydraulic technology, with optimised pump settings, revised spool
configuration and the introduction of a revised electronic control system, fuel efficiency improves by 11% on the JS220
and by 8% on the JS260 and JS360
These are also two of the first JS models to move up to Stage IIIB (Tier 4 Interim) compliance - achieved using Isuzu
engines and by incorporating a variable geometry turbocharger, exhaust gas recirculation and a diesel particulate filter.
New styling gives the excavator range an even more rugged appearance while the brand new cab has been
developed in response to customer feedback to give increased visibility, comfort and protection – with ROPS and FOPS
protection available on every model.
8026 CTS Mini Excavator
At the opposite end of the JCB excavator line-up, the 2.7 tonne JCB 8026 CTS offers customers compact design and
increased digging capacity. The machine uses a dedicated boom and dipper arm, to deliver greater digging and lifting
JCB to show mighty and

aggregates industries - including UK debuts for models from its heavy-line
