Reviewer Ron Horner recently got his hands on a new 20-tonne JCB 457HT wheel loader, and in this video he takes us around what he calls a “great little machine”.

First impressions count, and Ron’s like a kid in a lolly shop when he climbs up into the cab.

“I’ve owned a few loaders in my life and operated quite a few as well, and this has to be the best-appointed cabin that I’ve ever had the pleasure of sitting in,” he says.

Added to that, the operators’ view is incredible, he adds: “You can see everything from this seat.”

Turning to the machine’s single-lever control, Ron’s eyes light up again: “It’s 4-in-1 for your 4-in-1 bucket. Because this loader has got the third valve on it — it’s an integrated tool carrier as well. Thumbs up twice from me for that.”

Check out the video above to see the JCB 457HT wheel loader in action, and you can read Ron’s full review here.
