JCB rolls out new ‘Wastemaster’Published 8/10, 2015 at 10:20
JCB has launched a new model for waste handling and recycling applications.
The 457WM Wastemaster wheeled loader is the first JCB machine to feature the completely new JCB CommandPlus cab, engine cover and rear counterweight design, which contribute to improved visibility, lower noise levels, increased internal space and an enhanced working environment for the operator. The new cab, with on-demand cooling fan and repositioned air conditioning system, contribute to a significant reduction in internal noise levels from 71dB(A) to 67dB(A). The most visible change to the 457WM, aside from the new cab, is the adoption of a sloping one-piece engine canopy. This engine cover can be electrically raised away from the cab to provide improved access to the engine and drivetrain for regular maintenance. The JCB 457 Wastemaster is powered by a 7.7-litre MTU Tier 4 Final engine, delivering 193kW. The machine meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards without the need for a diesel particulate filter thanks to efficient combustion process, a selective catalytic reduction system and an exhaust fluid additive.
