JCB VM 137
We believe in adding features, not filters
The JCB VM137 is all-new and supremely productive. Boasting the kind of innovation and design expertise you’d expect from JCB Compaction, these soil compactors offer a host of performance, comfort, safety and efficiency features.
Like our new award-winning EcoMAX T4i-compliant engine, which meets Tier 4i legislation without bulky DPF or SCR; compact installation provides uncompromised visibility and maneuverability. The VM137 also has up to 60% gradeability, a new exciter system, an all-day comfy ergonomic cab, great ease of maintenance, and strong residuals.
JCB’s EcoMAX engine uses less fuel than our Tier 3 engines thanks to – amongst other things – our variable geometry turbo. The standard variable speed fan provides another fuel savings of up to 6%.
The EcoMAX engines deliver a massive 560 Nm in VM 137 at low engine speeds for optimum responsiveness, while EcoMAX also produces high power and torque at just 2200 rpm for fuel-efficient matching of transmission and hydraulics.
With EcoMAX, your VM 137 will save you money on servicing because exhaust after-treatment (and, therefore, costly heat-resistant lube oils) are unnecessary.
There’s superb all-round visibility on a VM 137 soil compactor, courtesy of a pillarless front cab design, and a sloping rear bonnet.
We use flat glass panels on these soil compactors (unlike our competitors), which makes replacement quick and easy.
Precise and productive soil compacting is guaranteed thanks to our new clear view front screen and minimal front display, which provide an unrestricted view to the front drum edges.
To improve safety and precision during operation, there’s a low rear bonnet profile and no exhaust pipe in the field of vision, which makes for an unrestricted view to the rear and corners of the VM117 and VM137.
Operators can get working quickly on a VM 137 with intuitive, easy-to-use and ergonomic controls, all laid out in the industry standard. Our easily adjustable tilting steering column provides maximum comfort too.
These soil compactors boast a range of seat options, including a pivoting base design, mechanical or air suspension and vinyl or fabric bases. Our Premium seat option has air suspension, lumbar support, armrests, backrest extension and a heating.
JCB’s standard-fit automatic vibration control (AVC) activates whenever the drive lever is moved from the neutral position. Because vibrations are stopped when your machine is at a standstill, this avoids unwanted compaction.
For fatigue-free all-day operation, these soil compactors are designed to offer low noise levels. By mechanically isolating the driver’s seat, steering column, lever and cab, we’ve ensured class-leading low vibration levels too.
