Features & Benefits


The 250hp (186kW) Cummins engine is mated to a 4-speed ZF fully automatic powershift transmission for stepless gear changes and smooth operation.


Besides huge breakout forces, the Z-linkage loader design means this front loader is also capable of high dump angles for improved productivity. A revised rear chassis design provides 3.3% extra lift capacity over the outgoing 456ZX.


The JCB 457ZX wheel loader’s innovative variable displacement pumps feed a load-sensing valve block, only consuming power on demand. They can also provide 326 l/min hydraulic flow for maximum multi-functioning performance.


Clever electronic management on the 457ZX wheel loader can control progressive clutch cut-off for efficient, productive loader control. This feature automatically diverts maximum power to the loader hydraulics for optimal truck/hopper loading duties.


Operators can choose the loader controls they prefer: multi lever, joystick, proportional auxiliary controls. Return-to-dig, arm height limitation and float functions are always at hand. Disabling those aids is possible with just the flick of a switch.


457ZX wheel loader has class-leading service and maintenance access, with gullwing doors providing easy access to the engine bay and cooling pack areas.
