The JCB 437 wheel loader’s articulation joint has a heavy-duty box section, a heavy-duty centre pin and oversized bush, as well as twin taper roller bearings on the bottom box joints. This setup can easily tolerate vertical and horizontal loadings.
Finite element analysis, as well as extensive endurance and rig testing ensure superior structural strength and durability. Cold cell testing guarantees starting performance down to -20°C.
High tolerances and accurate location of pins and bushes are assured with JCB’s precision machining techniques. State-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques help to achieve the very highest levels of build quality.
A solid cast rear counterweight protects the rear of your JCB 437 wheel loader – including the rear lights and cooling pack – from damage. Hoses are neatly routed and clamped through the articulation joint, well away from any pinch points.
The new front chassis is more durable than ever; it's been strengthened with additional ribs and gussets for maximum service life. For additional protection, there are impact-resistant fender edges and trims fitted.
This wheel loader has integral steel fluid tanks for the ultimate in leak protection: a far superior solution to the plastic tanks favoured by some competitors.
The ROPS structure on the 437 wheel loader is
redesigned; A pillars are the same width as the rear of the cab, providing a
larger interior and panoramic front windscreen. Switches and auxiliary controls
are now on the right-hand A-pillar.
There are two full colour LCD screens to navigate
the operating menus, one of which can double as a monitor for the optional
rear-view camera. Using your JCB’s simple, dedicated menu interface is easy
with an intuitive optional rotary controller.
As standard, the JCB 437 wheel loader is equipped with heated external mirrors that can be electronically adjusted
from inside the cab. Convex mirrors are also available to give the best
possible field of vision.
An all-new air venting system boasts nine
demisting vents and six operator vents to maintain visibility and operator
comfort at all times. It also operates at a reduced noise level.
All controls are seat-mounted, even moving with
the seat suspension. You can also select the control system that’s best for
your operators: choose from single lever joystick or multi-lever
configurations, all using electro-hydraulics for the ultimate in precision.
After extensive research into operator
ergonomics, we’ve devised the Command Driving Position, which boasts the very
optimal control layout for a multitude of different driver shapes and sizes.
On the new JCB 437
wheel loader, you’ll find the rear-view mirrors mounted in front of the
A-pillars for improved visibility. Interior mirrors, heated exterior mirrors
and bonnet mirrors combine to offer excellent views all around your wheeled
Access steps on this loader are inclined and
equally spaced, complemented by well positioned grab handles for three points
of contact at all times. Non-slip walkways and additional grab handle options
allow for safe movement around the machine.
Door hinges are now mounted on the A-pillar of
the JCB 437; this simple change has created much better access via a larger and
wider door aperture. It also means you can access the rear of your loader more
Full fender coverage flaps have been carefully
designed to keep forward spray to a minimum for all tyre options. This
increases safety and decreases debris build-up on your wheel loader.
Engines fitted with a DPF can pose an increased fire risk because extreme heat can be created in regeneration mode. The new 437 doesn’t use DPFs, so this is no cause for concern.
The cab is isolator-mounted, compliant with
ROPS/FOPS standards, and positively pressurised against dust. You can choose
from fresh air or carbon filters as well.
The JCB 437 wheel loader's Auto
Idle feature returns the engine to 700rpm after 30 seconds of inactivity. Eco
Mode caps engine speed at 1800rpm for reduced fuel consumption. Productivity
nonetheless remains formidable.
A hydraulic cooling fan
automatically reacts to ambient temperature and adjusts the fan speed to
optimise energy and reduce fuel consumption. An additional benefit of this
setup is lower noise levels.
Our torque lock-up 5-speed
transmission option gives 100% efficiency in gears 2 to 5 for improved fuel
consumption on your wheeled loading shovel. Closer gear ratios provide lower
engine speed in each gear.
Wheel speed braking means brakes
rotate at the same speed as the wheels for heat and drag reduction, as well as
improved economy. Unloaded spool valves in the valve block, meanwhile, mean
that arms lower under gravitational forces, improving efficiency.
JCB’s innovative variable displacement pumps feed a load-sensing valve block which only consumes power on demand, providing precise, efficient loader control.
JCB Smoothride load suspension
limits shock loadings and therefore reduces material spillage and structural
stress, as well as increasing operator comfort. The speed of engagement is
adjustable from within the cab using the latest state-of-the-art Command Plus
It’s easy to get to the engine on a new JCB 437 wheel loader with a large automatic opening single-piece bonnet. Accessing the diesel and DEF tanks is similarly straightforward via the lockable grille at the rear of the machine.
Heating and ventilation filters are conveniently located behind an external access panel. You can check washer fluid level, engine oil and coolant from inside the cab, with all other routine checks and grease points located at ground level.
A cyclonic engine fan scavenge filter provides four times the filtering capacity of a standard air filter. It's a longer life system, with fewer components and a higher level of efficiency, making for better engine protection.
Most Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engines use a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that can cost a lot of money and time when it needs replacing. The Cummins engine is DPF-free, reducing your servicing and running costs.
By using top components in the JCB 437 wheeled
loading shovel (Cummins engine, ZF transmissions and axles, Rexroth pumps and
Parker valve blocks), we’ve built in long service life as standard.
Powerful twin variable displacement piston pump hydraulics can circulate a massive 264 l/min for fast cycle times and excellent multi functioning capability on the JCB 437 wheeled loader.
The Cummins QSB 6.7-litre engine achieves maximum engine power (136Kw) and peak torque (841Nm) at low revs for excellent response. A variable geometry turbo gives increased performance at low engine speed for improved cycle times and tractive effort.
Choose from three axle options:
› Standard differentials for hard standing
› Limited slip diff for soft, muddy
terrain with reduced traction.
› Open differential with an automatic locking front axle differential for varied ground conditions.
You don’t need to waste time and money replacing diesel particulate filters (DPF) on your loader; the engine meets Tier 4 Final/Stage IV legislation using only exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). This also improves fuel economy.
The selectable loader arm detents mean operators can set loader arm height limitations, return to dig and float functions. This wheel loader therefore enjoys improved safety and productivity.
The innovative electronic management can
perform progressive clutch cut-off for efficient, productive loader control.
This feature controls tractive effort via the transmission, diverting maximum
power to the loader hydraulics and reducing service brake wear and fuel
