The new 2.5-litre JCB Diesel by Kohler 2504 TCR engine has been upgraded with new features to increase productivity, JCB revealed.

The new liquid-cooled engine has replaced an air-cooled unit, after JCB and Kohler engineers collaborated to finalise a power unit specification that suited JCB compact equipment and fitted JCB’s philosophy on engine emissions control.

"The decision to partner with Kohler to develop engines for JCB compact machines was driven by the synergy in the technologies used by JCB and Kohler to achieve stringent Tier 4 Final emissions legislation," said JCB’s director of engine programmes Alan Tolley.

"Kohler’s achievement of Tier 4 Final without the need for a bulky DPF is fully in line with our own engine strategy and allows our designers maximum flexibility when it comes to meeting machine design and packaging requirements," Tolley added.

Other improvements to JCB's new compact loaders include a redesigned rear chassis with a 3.5-tonne towing capacity, enabled with a 100 per cent locking front differential option.
