The company says the new model will have extra lift height to 5.4m – ideal for high-sided diet feeders.

This new model also uses the same 108kW (145hp) JCB EcoMax engine that meets Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emissions using selective catalytic reduction (SCR) but no diesel particulate filter (DPF).

Other new features over previous models include regenerative hydraulics circuit giving faster boom lowering for quicker loading cycles, and a tougher chassis with larger pins and bushes for the centre pivot and loader.

It also has heavier-duty JCB axles with permanent four-wheel drive to handle the increased payload and 26-inch wheels with larger tyres to optimise traction.

JCB chief innovation and growth officer Tim Burnhope says: "The new JCB TM420 delivers more performance and increased capabilities to meet customer demand for greater productivity and lower costs."

A larger lift cylinder fed by the 160L/min piston pump provides 4.1 tonnes of lift capacity from ground level to full height, which is 32 per cent more than from the TM320S, while the first application on a telescopic wheeled loader of JCB’s regenerative hydraulics speeds up repetitive loading cycles – such as when using a 4.1-cubic-metre grain bucket from the JCB Agri range.

Agritechnica runs from the November 12-18 2017 in Hanover, Germany. Not all products launched at the event will be available in Australia.
