The base 5-ton model in our range of wheel loaders is the JCB 406.
Its compact dimensions and low height over cab combine with a pivot-steer design and articulated chassis to provide incredible maneuverability and the tightest of turning circles. That makes the JCB 406 compact loader indispensable for working in restricted spaces and buildings.
Plus, a huge range of JCB attachments and compatibility with your own existing attachments, lets you tailor these wheel loaders to your specific needs. Powered by a potent Stage 3/Tier 3 compliant 3.6 liter 4 cylinder 62hp (46kW) Deutz engine, you may find the 406 is all the machine youll ever need.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
Conveniently positioned handrails and low steps ensure easy and safe ingress and egress from the cab.
With no exhaust after treatment, our JCB Diesel by Kohler engine are extremely compact for uncompromised visibility. The sloping rear hood provides an unimpeded view, with the exhaust silencer and air intake filter both packaged out of sight.
Weve fit an in-cab quickhitch isolation system to prevent uncontrolled release of attachments on the TM220.
JCBs optional Smoothride System (SRS) ensures maximum load retention and operator comfort.
JCB 406 wheel loaders feature a class-leading, low-noise operator environment for fatigue-free, comfortable, productive working.
Visibility is first class, with an excellent all round view due to large glass panels and narrow cab pillars. Parallel loader-arm geometry aids this still further.
A wide door aperture and well-positioned steps make cab access easy and safe on a JCB 406 compact loader, and the ergonomically laid out controls are comfortably within arms reach.
Serviceability is similarly impressive on these compact wheel loaders, with grouped daily checks accessible from ground level, a wide opening bonnet and long 1,000hr engine service intervals. Oil-immersed disc brakes give virtually maintenance-free life and all engine service points are grouped for convenience.CONTROLLABILITY AND VERSATILITY
From harsh waste environments to the farm and field, the potential industries and applications for JCB 406 wheel loaders are endless.
To give you an idea, JCB 406 compact loader's lift height allows them to load into road trucks, but its still compact enough to fit into tight barns and under small bridges. Theres further versatility on offer with a large range of attachments and, thanks to our hydraulic quickhitch, the operator doesnt even have to leave the cab for attachment changes
The cab volume of a JCB 406 compact wheel loader is excellent, and its low mounting reduces overall machine height.
Overall machine controllability is first class too. Our pivot steer design makes JCB 406 wheel loaders simple to maneuver, while allowing easy and accurate placing of the load. Dual-speed hydrostatic transmission provides accurate matching of speed to application and the ability to inch using the brake pedal.
Responsive, accurate hydraulic controls give fast cycle times and are simple and intuitive even for inexperienced operators.PERFORMANCE
JCB 406 wheel loaders power is provided by a Tier 3 compliant 4-cylinder Deutz engine offering a powerful 62hp (46kW).
This is combined with permanent four-wheel-drive for excellent traction in poor ground conditions.
JCB 406 compact loaders have an operating weight of 5 tons.
Because the 406 compact wheel loaders are designed with pallet work in mind, weve fitted a sturdy, parallel-lift loader-arm with a payload of 4,550lb (2,064kg) (when using pallet forks, 80% safety factor).
Front visibility is excellent and the JCB 406 wheel loader offers an impressive shovel tearout of 9,420lbf (41.9kN).
