Improved engine and hydraulic performance
JCB has made some major changes to its popular Agri Super Loadalls, increasing engine power and boosting hydraulic performance.
New model Agri Super Loadalls now incorporate a Tier 3 Dieselmax engine – an electronically-controlled engine that provides four per cent more power and increased torque in the 1300-2200rpm range.
Landpower product manager Mark Calcott says the benefits of this new engine, which utilises common-rail electronic fuel injection technology, include an improved power to weight ratio and greater pushing power.
The new 130hp engine also offers better fuel economy and increased climbing and towing capacity.
Performance of the new Agri Super Loadalls is further boosted by Vari-Flo hydraulics, which utilise a 140 litre/minute displacement pump to provide fast cycle times, even at low speeds.
Key advantages of this hydraulic flow-on-demand system include lower fuel consumption and reduced heat generation in the hydraulic system.
Vari-Flo’s electronic control unit (ECU) finely balances the available transmission power with hydraulic power to provide improved hydraulic flow and faster cycle times.
Mark Calcott says the Loadall’s ability to achieve good cycle times at low engine speeds makes it ideal for precision loader work in tight spaces, like inside buildings or in silage pits.
In addition, Vari-Flo’s three-stage hydraulic filtration system provides maximum protection of the precision parts, ensuring a long service life.
Productivity is further boosted by an improved hydraulic joystick that allows the operator to steer, operate the hydraulics and change direction – all at the same time. This gives optimum cycle time when loading.
For ease of use, the directional change switch is located on the underside of the joystick. The left-hand directional lever has also been retained so that the operator has the option of using either method of changing direction.
Like previous models, the JCB Super Agri’s spacious cab provides excellent comfort, superb noise control and exceptional visibility, creating a superb working environment for greater operator productivity.
