Military Wheel Loader

A flexible tool carrier, the JCB Military Wheel Loader has a range of attachments and configurations to suit any application.

Our wheel loaders offer superb loader performance. Several configurations are available to improve reach, tearout or fork lifting. The machine can be supplied with Z-bar linkage (ZX) for high breakout applications or high torque (HT) for parallel lifting and multi attachment work. High lift and super high lift options equip your machine for applications involving high loading heights. These wheeled loaders offer a versatile and robust solution for military applications.

This machine with its range of front-end attachments is ideal to support beach head landings.

The militarised JCB can be waterproofed to a I.5m wading depth and can be supplied with a roof hatch to be used as a secondary exit. It can also be winterised for operating in temperatures as low as -40°C. The optional front winch is ideally suited to recovery operations and snow chains can also be fitted without any reduction in the turning circle.


It’s easy to get to the engine on a new JCB 427 wheel loader with a large automatic opening single-piece bonnet.

The JCB 427 wheel loader’s articulation joint has a heavy-duty box section, a heavy-duty centre pin and oversized bush, as well as twin taper roller bearings on the bottom box joints. This setup can easily tolerate vertical and horizontal loadings. A solid cast rear counterweight protects the rear of your JCB 427 wheel loader – including the rear lights and cooling pack – from damage.


Built on the same DNA as the rest of our New Generation Wheel Loaders, the 437 shares all the features of the 427 machine.

The Cummins QSB 6.7-litre engine achieves maximum engine power (136Kw) and peak torque (841Nm) at low revs for excellent response. A variable geometry turbo gives increased performance at low engine speed for improved cycle times and tractive effort.


The MTU 6R1000 7.7-litre engine fitted to the new JCB 457 produces 193kW (258hp) of power and 1150Nm of torque (6% more than our outgoing model). What’s more, it produces all of this at low revs for incredibly responsive operation.

Powerful twin variable displacement piston pump hydraulics can circulate a massive 323 l/min for fast cycle times and excellent multifunctioning capability. With maximum breakout forces of 172kN, this wheel loader has the power to carry out extremely arduous loading jobs.
