 Features and Benefits

COMFORT AND EASE OF USE

  • The JCB 409 wheel loader has a comfortable and spacious cab with noise levels lower than our outgoing model. The operating position is designed for optimum all-around visibility, unhindered by components like silencers. 

  • Our tilting telescopic steering column is easy to adjust, and all instruments needed to operate this wheel loader are within easy reach of the seat, so there’s no need to hunt around for information while working. 

  • With a fully opening right-hand window as standard, JCB 409 operators can enjoy increased ventilation while still being protected from dust. 

  • This compact wheel loader is equipped with a new ergonomically designed joystick control system for comfortable and intuitive operation. 

  • A variable adjustable flow control makes it easy to adjust auxiliary flow on the move. Because flow rate can be monitored on the display, operators can always find the right setting, which leads to improved economy. 

DRIVELINE PERFORMANCE

  • JCB and Kohler have produced the ultimate compact wheel loader engine for the 409. It’s Stage Tier 4 compliant using only a DOC, while low-rev power and torque means good fuel economy. Dimensions are compact for small turning circles.

  • A variable speed engine crank-driven cooling fan maintains optimum fan speed for all requirements without using any excess engine power.

  • Power is transferred to the ground efficiently through an innovative chassis, with perfect harmony between all components.

  • We offer several axle options on the JCB 409 including open diffs for hard ground and limited slip diffs for soft muddy terrain.

  • Our 100% switchable front axle diff lock option provides ultimate traction on mud and creates no shear forces, so won’t damage the ground when it’s not in use. It can also be engaged on the move and under load.

  • Hydrostatic drive makes the 409 wheel loader very easy to operate even for the inexperienced. That means there’s less risk of overpowering the machine at a cost to fuel economy

QUALITY, RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY

  • We’ve used only the very finest engine, driveline and axle components on the 409 wheel loader, from suppliers like DANA and Bosch.

  • This wheel loader benefits from a strong chassis and the best possible weight distribution; this allows for optimal absorption of external forces.

  • We understand how tough materials handling can be, so we use a heavy-duty center joint which articulates through ±40°. Precision machining provides high tolerances and accurate location of pins and bushings on these wheel loaders.

  • Rear lights are recessed within the solid counterweight casting for impact protection and hydraulic hoses are neatly routed, properly clamped, and positioned away from potential pinch points.

  • We use state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, finite element analysis and extensive rig testing to achieve the very highest levels of quality. Cold cell testing guarantees starting performance at temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C).
