403 AGRI

If you’re looking for a small, manoeuvrable wheel loader, then look no further than the compact 2-tonne JCB 403 AGRI. It’s the first JCB to compete in the under-50hp compact loading shovels sector. As you’d expect from a JCB machine, it raises the bar.

Perfect for accessing farm buildings and other restricted sites, hydrostatic transmission makes the 403 AGRI loading shovel easy for anyone to operate.

In the engine bay is a lively 37hp (28 kW) 1.7 litre Kohler engine boasting 106 Nm of torque. Individual wheel motors give excellent ground clearance and eliminate vulnerable propshafts.

Reliability, durability and low maintenance also combine to make the 403 AGRI wheel loader an excellent all-round investment.

The new JCB 403 wheel loader benefits from a comfortable and spacious cab. The operating position is designed for optimum all-round visibility, unhindered by things like exhausts and air filters.

Our tilting telescopic steering column is easy to adjust for an ergonomic driving position. Switching between high and low travel speeds takes just the flick of a button located on the joystick.

The 403 compact loading shovel comes equipped as standard with a new, ergonomically designed joystick control system for comfortable and intuitive operation. This means you can control all arm/auxiliary movements with your hand in one place.

You can manoeuver quickly and easily with directional shuttle changes via the joystick mounted shuttle switch (FNR).

Measuring under 2.2m in height and 1.1m in width, this compact new loader can access the very smallest operating environments like poultry sheds and outbuildings. Not least when you consider its compact wheelbase and 40° steering articulation angle.

It’s easy to lock or detent hydraulic flow to the front using the auxiliary control lever. This provides a constant flow of up to 40.5 l/min for attachments like sweepers and feeder buckets.


The JCB 403 AGRI compact wheel loader is manoeuvrable and features a quick 15kph (9.3mph) maximum travel speed. The 0.3 cubic metre shovel and 2180mm dump height will have loads shifted in no time, and the 403 is able to nip in and out of restricted spaces.

Ideal for agriculture, the JCB 403 AGRI compact can fit into the eaves of poultry sheds and other restricted spaces. It’s also incredibly easy to use. Thanks to the hydrostatic drive, anyone can get to grips with this compact front loader in a matter of minutes.


Our large single piece bonnet ensures quick and convenient access to the 403 wheel loader’s engine bay and cooling pack areas of your wheel loader. All daily check points are easily accessed under the bonnet.

The dash keeps your operators well informed via a fuel gauge, analogue coolant temperature dial, LCD hours display, high gear display, and all the usual warning lights.

It’s easy to access and fill the diesel tank from ground level. There’s also an integral pre-filter in the filler neck as well, protecting your loading shovel from dirty fuel.

We’ve fitted an in-cab electronic 2-stage quickhitch isolation system to prevent unintended release of attachments. A ROPS and FOPS approved cab and canopy are available as options.

Access steps are inclined and complemented by well positioned handles so that operators have three points of contact whenever they’re entering or exiting the cab.

A battery cut-off switch protects your JCB 403 loader’s power supply from damage or theft.


We’ve hand-picked the very best core components for the JCB 403 wheel loader, including a Kubota engine, ZF axles and Bosch Rexroth hydraulics pumps. It’s all designed to work in perfect harmony, ensuring economical, reliable and productive performance.

Heavy-duty axle feet absorb the immense stresses generated during continuous heavy material rehandling. Our high-strength centre joint can withstand both vertical and horizontal loadings for maximum durability and rigidity.

Loader arms are one of the hardest working components on any wheel loader, bearing the brunt of daily tasks and distributing. The 403’s patented arms are designed to distribute forces evenly into the front chassis, boosting strength, durability and longevity.

A solid cast rear counterweight helps prevent impact damage. Protection plates underneath your 403 will shield the engine and driveline from impact damage.

Hydraulic hoses are neatly routed and clamped along the loader arms well away from any potential pinch points to guard against damage.

This loading shovel has benefited from a stringent testing programme that includes high stress loading of the chassis, loader arms and other key components. We’ve also subjected the transmission to thousands of typical working cycles.
