JCB introduces skid steer and compact track loader with a telescopic boom
April 18, 2017 - The JCB Teleskid is a new product that can reach 60 per cent further forward with a forward reach of 2.4 metres. It can dig below its chassis to a depth of around one metre. This new machine can also reach eight per cent higher than any other skid steer with a lift height of four metres. The JCB Teleskid will be able to combine vertical and radial lift capability. A unique bucket-positioning levelling system allows the bucket level to be set and maintained throughout the boom’s range of movement. The JCB Teleskid will feature a fully enclosed cab that is 33 per cent larger than industry average, and JCB’s myCHOICE software, allowing control responsiveness and joystick sensitivity to be tailored to suit operator preferences. A 74hp/55kW JCB Ecomax engine will provide high torque at a low RPM and ensure compliance with Tier 4 Final / Stage IIIB emissions standards.
