409

Summary

With a powerful JCB Diesel by Kohler engine, tremendous manoeuvrability and a raft of efficiency benefits, the 409 compact wheel loader is a highly productive machine.

Key Benefits

Stage IIIB/ Tier 4i-compliant JCB Diesel by Kohler engine
55.4 kW of power and 300 Nm of torque
Hydrostatic drive for easy operation
Great all-round visibility and superb operator comfort
Heavy-duty versatile articulated steering system with sideshift
Easy to service and extremely safe to operate


JCB and Kohler have produced the ultimate compact wheel loader engine for the 409. It’s Stage IIIB/Tier 4F-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.

With our High Flow option, the JCB 409 compact wheel loader enjoys an extra 30 litres of hydraulic capacity for an enhanced 120.8l/min flow rate. 

JCB’s articulated steering boasts an easy-to-use built-in sideshift – ideal for pallet handling. 

The JCB 409 is a highly versatile loading shovel, capable of many tasks, with plenty of options to create a perfect solution to your needs, as well as a huge range of easily interchangeable attachments. 

Equip your wheel loader with our new towing option and you’ll get a tow bar with rear electrics and hydraulics, allowing you to trailer loads of up to 3.5 tonnes or carry rear attachments like salt spreaders. 

By splitting power between the transmission and the hydraulics, our inching pedal allows precise, efficient, stepless load handling. 

Our loading shovels are even more versatile when you use both front and rear attachments together; you could, for example, combine a snow plough and rear grit spreader.

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

This loading shovel 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 centre joint which oscillates through ±40°. Precision machining provides high tolerances and accurate location of pins and bushes on these loading shovels. 

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 pinching spots. 

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 -20°C.

The new 409 wheel loader features 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 the 409 wheel loader, while the ergonomically laid out controls are comfortably within arm’s reach.

Serviceability is similarly impressive on this compact loader, with grouped daily checks accessible from ground level, a wide opening bonnet and long 500hr engine service intervals. Oil-immersed disc brakes give virtually maintenance-free life and all engine service points are grouped for convenience.

The JCB 409 wheel loader can be equipped with a new immobiliser option, which can help prevent thefts from your fleet. 

Access steps are inclined, equally spaced and complemented by well positioned handles so that operators have three points of contact whenever they’re entering or exiting the JCB 409’s cab. 

With no exhaust after treatment, our JCB Diesel by Kohler engines are extremely compact for uncompromised visibility. The sloping rear bonnet provides an unimpeded view, with the exhaust silencer and air intake filter both packaged out of sight. 

We’ve fitted an in-cab electronic 2-stage quickhitch isolation system to prevent uncontrolled release of attachments on the 409 loading shovel.

Most T4F engines use a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or SCR, requiring costly AdBlue fluid level maintenance or heat-resistant lube oils. The new Kohler engine designed by JCB doesn't, thus reducing service and running costs. 

Operators and managers of the JCB 409 wheel loader can access vital information like machine running times and error alerts at the touch of a button on the in-cab display and if needed via JCB’s LiveLink telematics system. 

The JCB 409 has a cyclonic pre-filter which maximises air filtration and extends filter element service intervals significantly. 

A large single piece bonnet provides quick and convenient access to all daily check points, as well as the engine bay and cooling pack of your wheel loader. 

Your local JCB dealer will be able to supply all parts for your 409 loading shovel, including JCB Diesel by Kohler engine components. This model also shares parts with other JCB machinery, making everything even more readily available. 

A stylish, modern central dash display combines analogue dials and a colour LCD screen – this can display machine health details, service requirements, operating information and more.
