• Large inclined steps and ergonomic grab handles make cab access safe and easy for operators of the new 455 ZX wheeled loading shovel.
  • An optional reversing camera displays an unobstructed rearward view on this wheeled loading shovel’s in-cab colour monitor.
  • Non-slip walkways and additional grab handle options allow operators to move around the exterior of your wheel loader safely.
  • The JCB 455 ZX’s cab is isolated from the chassis by rubber mounts, which keeps noise and vibration levels to a minimum. It’s also compliant with ROPS/FOPS standards, and positively pressurised against dust.


  • The float mode on the JCB 455 ZX wheel loader’s valve block lowers the loader arms under gravitational – not hydraulic – force, reducing fuel consumption.
  • Wheel speed braking means the brakes rotate at the same speed as the wheels for heat and drag reduction, as well as improved fuel economy.
  • A hydraulic cooling fan automatically reacts to ambient temperature and adjusts this wheeled loading shovel’s fan speed to optimise cooling and reduce fuel consumption. The feature also lowers noise levels.
  • JCB’s innovative variable displacement pumps feed a load-sensing valve block which only consumes power on demand, providing precise, efficient loader control.


  • A 455 ZX wheel loading shovel’s electronic monitoring system relays key information and real time alerts, safeguarding both machine and operator.
  • You can gain access to the 455 ZX’s engine bay and cooling pack areas easily with wide-opening gullwing doors. What’s more, you can check brake, steering and hydraulic system pressures easily thanks to group test ports.
  • Bucket teeth are bolt-on replaceable pieces, making them quick and easy for your wheel loader operators to renew and thus ensuring maximum uptime.
  • Daily checks and grease points are accessible from ground level, making life easier and safer for your operators.
  • Full hydraulic dual circuit braking with multiple oil-immersed disc brakes offers a long, virtually maintenance free lifespan, contributing to the new JCB 455 ZX front loader’s productivity.
  • Single face cooling pack technology makes it simple to clean debris and maintain the cooling matrix.
