The Tier 4 Interim engines will have the same 500-hour service intervals as the previous models. It is estimated that there will be a nominal increase of 5 cents per hour over a typical 6,000-hour ownership period for a backhoe-loader, an amount that will be offset by the fuel economy and productivity benefits.
Forging a Link
Because the Ecomax engines feature electronic control, JCB has been able to fully integrate engine diagnostics and analysis into its LiveLink telematic system on certain models. Customers will be able to access location information, service alerts, engine health alerts and other critical data.
With the Tier 4 Interim engine, LiveLink will provide improved diagnostics, fuel economy and work-related data, such as fuel economy in different working modes. This will allow customers to more closely manage the use of equipment, ensuring that maximum economy is achieved on site.
