JCB Launches New Engine

JCB Launches New Engine

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 08 February 2017

JCB has invested £41m into the development of a new engine and associated component products. Production is set to get underway of a brand-new fuel-efficient JCB engine following the culmination of a £31 million investment programme.

 JCB announced in 2011 that it was launching a new engine development project with the help of £4.5 million from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.

The company has now unveiled the results of that investment for the first time – a brand new three litre engine. It is the third engine line to be launched by JCB since production first started in 2004 at JCB Power Systems in Derbyshire and joins the 4.4, 4.8 and 7.2 litre models.

 JCB CEO Graeme Macdonald said: “It is hard to believe that, just over 12 years ago, JCB didn’t make engines. Today JCB has produced 400,000 high-performance diesel engines, leading the way with a purpose-built range which saves fuel, is clean and highly efficient.

One of the most impressive features of the new three litre JCB DieselMax engine is its fuel consumption – using up to 8% less fuel than the already very fuel efficient 4.4 litre JCB engine. The totally new 3.0 litre fuel-efficient JCB430 DieselMax engine is also 30% lighter than JCB’s popular 4.4 litre EcoMax engine and has been designed specifically for mid-range construction and industrial equipment operating cycles.

Launched initially with 55kW (74hp), at Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Final, the 3.0 litre engine produces an impressive 400Nm of torque from just 1300rpm. The engine meets the relevant emissions legislation without any requirement for a costly Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) or any form of exhaust additive or aftertreatment. This will make it an ideal powerplant for a wide range of mid-weight construction and industrial equipment. The engine has been designed to be ready for Stage V emissions standards and it will be available with additional power ratings in the future.
