Four in one capability with the JCB Teleskid

Covering aspects of a forklift, a telescopic handler, a compact loader and a skid steer loader, the JCB Teleskid is a versatile machine for lifting and carrying

The JCB Teleskid is the first skid steer or compact tracked loader with a telescopic boom, making it a versatile and robust machine that combines the capabilities of a forklift, a telescopic handler, a compact loader and a skid steer loader.

With a vertical reach of over 4m and a forward reach of 2.5m the JCB Teleskid can reach higher, further and deeper than any other skid steer on the market, says JCB, allowing it to access areas not possible with a traditional skid steer. Operators can reach out and grab trees and branches or dig below ground for up to 900mm.

Along with conventional construction, the JCB Teleskid can also easily load high sided truck bodies without needing a ramp, or over the top of structures, such as fencing. The Teleskid has a lift capacity of 1,676kg with the boom retracted – or 732kg with the boom fully extended. It is also aided by the cabin design of the machine where operators can enjoy 60 per cent better visibility than with twin-arm machines, JCB says.

Another unique feature of the JCB Teleskid is the introduction of the side door cabin access. Along with the JCB’s skid steer range the Teleskid is the only product which offers the operator entry and exit through a side door for added safety, it says. This side access door helps remove the risk of serious injury by transiting under or over the loader frame. The side door allows operators to enter and exit the machine without contacting any of the attachments or lifted materials. Users can also exit the cabin and review the placement of a load, while the boom is raised to mid-height.

The JCB Teleskid offers 270 degrees of visibility from within the cabin thanks to its large front windshield, which can easily be removed for a quick exit in case of an emergency, while the recessed rear door gives increased protection from damage.

The Teleskid comes in wheeled and tracked configurations and is available to order now through your local JCB CEA dealer:
