JCB 406

The compact machine that gets a big tick for everything

The JCB 406 is a highly productive compact wheel loader. The optimal power-to-weight ratio makes it a perfect tool carrier. It’s fitted with a 36.4 kW engine that produces 170 Nm of torque, powering a 2-speed hydrostatic transmission and a load over height of 2991mm. 


This loading shovel also features superior quality components, comfort and ergonomics aplenty, excellent build quality, stringent safety levels and straightforward serviceability. 


In short, it’s a perfect choice for a low cost productive machine with a simple mechanical engine.

The JCB 406 wheel loader can be equipped with a new immobiliser option, which can help prevent thefts from your fleet.


Access steps are complemented by well positioned handles so that operators have three points of contact whenever they’re entering or exiting the JCB 406’s cab.


With no exhaust after treatment, our JCB Diesel by Kohler engines are extremely compact for uncompromised visibility. The sloping rear bonnet provides an unimpeded view, with the exhaust silencer and air intake filter both packaged out of sight.


We’ve fitted an in-cab electronic 2-stage quickhitch isolation system to prevent uncontrolled release of attachments on the 406 loading shovel.

The JCB 406 wheel loader has a comfortable and spacious cab with noise levels lower than our outgoing model. The operating position is designed for optimum all-round visibility, unhindered by components like silencers.


Our tilting telescopic steering column is easy to adjust, and all instruments needed to operate this loading shovel are within easy reach of the seat, so there’s no need to hunt around for information whilst working.


With a fully opening right-hand window as an option, JCB 406 operators can enjoy increased ventilation whilst still being protected from dust.


This compact loading shovel is equipped with a new ergonomically designed joystick control system for comfortable and intuitive operation.

From harsh waste environments to the farm and field, the potential industries and applications for JCB 406 wheel loaders are endless.


To give you an idea, JCB 406 compact loaders’ lift height allows them to load into road trucks, but it’s still compact enough to fit into tight barns and under small bridges. There’s further versatility on offer with a large range of attachments and, thanks to our hydraulic quickhitch, the operator doesn’t even have to leave the cab for attachment changes.


The cab volume of a JCB 406 compact wheel loader is excellent, and its low mounting reduces overall machine height.


Overall machine controllability is first class too. Our pivot steer design makes JCB 406 wheel loaders simple to manoeuvre, while allowing easy and accurate placing of the load. Dual-speed hydrostatic transmission provides accurate matching of speed to application and the ability to inch using the brake pedal.


Responsive, accurate hydraulic controls give fast cycle times and are simple and intuitive even for inexperienced operators.
