It's also easily serviceable to maximise its working life, supremely comfortable to operate, and highly efficient on any site. So you can see that this new JCB wheeled loading shovel represents a great business decision.

Designed to work hard.

We use state-of-the-art manufacturing processes like robot machining, precision paint technology and innovative assembly techniques to achieve the very highest levels of build quality.

Finite element analysis and rig testing ensure superior structural strength and durability; to guarantee that the 455ZX will perform anywhere for you, we carry out extreme hot and cold climate testing.

Built to last.

JCB DIESELMAX engines feature a heavy-duty cast iron cylinder block, bedplate, cylinder head and forged crankshaft to provide high strength and long life. 6 Precision machining provides high tolerances and accurate location of the 455ZX's pins and bushes.

There are top quality components fitted to the 455ZX (a JCB DIESELMAX engine, ZF transmission and axles, Rexroth pumps and a Parker valve block, for example), so you can rest assured that you'll get a long, reliable service life from your machine.

Powering it all.

A state-of-the-art engine management system offers optimised performance and fuel efficiency at all times.

The JCB DIESELMAX 672 engine uses our latest generation EcoMAX lean-burn combustion system for ultimate efficiency and reduced emissions. The 6-cylinder 7.2 litre engine achieves high power (165kW) and peak torque (1000Nm) at low revs for excellent response.

There's a 310-litre fuel tank as standard on the 455ZX, along with extremely fuel-efficient matching of hydraulics, transmission and engine. This combination ensures maximum uptime between refuelling: a welcome feature when you're working in remote areas where diesel has to be transported in.

Loading productivity.

Proven Z-bar loader geometry is capable of exceptional productivity, courtesy of comprehensive penetration into the pile, high breakout forces, good roll-back angles and faster dig times. You'll also benefit from reduced tyre wear and superior fuel efficiency, making this machine a great investment for any business.

The innovative electronic management system 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 consumption

The 455ZX is fitted as standard with limited slip differentials that are perfect for soft, muddy terrain with reduced traction.
