JCB introduces upgraded Hydradig to North American market at CONEXPO

JCB is upgrading the 110W Hydradig wheeled tool carrier with the installation of a Tier 4 Final JCB EcoMAX diesel engine. Hydradig has established a completely new market segment in Europe since its launch in 2016, and is available in North America for the first time.

The Hydradig Tier 4 Final JCB EcoMAX diesel engine features:

  • SCR with DEF additive resulting in no requirement for a DPF

  • Minimum 4 percent fuel saving over previous engine

  • Very low 2 percent DEF use, reducing downtime

  • NOx emissions reduced by 88 percent for lower environmental impact

Attachment carrier

JCB’s Hydradig wheeled tool carrier is taking on the latest Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV compliant JCB EcoMAX diesel engine, equipped with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR).  This highly efficient engine, which delivers a powerful 81 kW (108 hp), uses a Urea-based Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) additive that is injected into the exhaust system to reduce potentially harmful oxides of nitrogen (NOx) by 88 percent.

Improved efficiency within the engine results in fuel savings of up to 4 percent, despite producing the same power and torque as the previous machine, cutting operating costs for customers. The machine is equipped with a 19-litre DEF tank and with a minimal 2 percent DEF use this will only require a refill with every sixth tank of diesel, minimizing downtime. The Hydradig was designed from the outset to accommodate the Tier 4 Final EcoMax engine, the revised exhaust system the DEF tank and dosing equipment, so there is no change to component packaging or the excellent service access on offer. There is also no requirement for either DEF tank coolers or additional heaters within this system.
