3TS-8T Compact Track Loader
The world’s first compact track loader with a telescopic boom, the JCB Teleskid 3TS-8T compact track loader is able to reach 60 percent further and lift 8 percent higher than any skid steer on the market, and—in another industry first—it can dig to a depth of 3 feet (1 m).
The Teleskid is also the only skid steer to offer the advantages of vertical lift—for greater lift capacity and lift height—and radial lift—for improved excavating and grading—in a single machine.
Combine the versatility of a skid steer or compact track loader with the telescopic JCB Powerboom™ and SAE/ISO standard quick hitch, and you have the combination for unbeatable productivity and efficiency. Load and unload both sides of a standard, 8-foot trailer from just one side. Load a high-sided trailer or stack items without building a ramp. Lift and place over a fence or obstacle without removing it or driving around it.
A proven JCB EcoMAX engine delivers increased performance at low engine speed for improved cycle times, with no requirement for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) or a costly, productivity-sapping diesel particulate filter (DPF). Teleskid offers greater tractive force and pushing power than a small telehandler or forklift, and breakout force that rivals many bigger machines.
The World's Safest Skid Steer
The JCB Teleskid features the same unique, wide-opening side entry door for which JCB skid steer and compact track loaders are known. Not only is the JCB door up to twice the size of the competition, making it more comfortable to use, but it makes JCB the safest skid steer on the market. No longer are operators required to climb over attachments or under an unsupported boom to enter through the front, as is necessary with competing machines.
The JCB Teleskid telescopic Powerboom™ enables an exceptional 270 degrees of vision from the operator position, which is 60 percent better than conventional twin arm design machines, providing greater safety for the operator and others on the job site. Visibility is further enhanced by the standard-fit electronic quick hitch with a fully enclosed tilt cylinder, which limits the build-up of material that might obstruct the operators view.
