JCB Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders
March 14, 2012

JCB’s eight new machines—the 135, 155, 175, 190 and 205 skid steers and the 150T, 190T and 205T compact track loaders—complement JCB’s nine large platform New Generation models. These smaller skid models are more maneuverable in tight, confined areas and are easily transported from job site to job site. However, they don’t sacrifice power, safety, comfort or productivity. The 135, 155 and 150T machines feature radial lift, which offers improved digging geometry for heavy loading applications. Because they contain fewer pins and bushings, radial lift machines perform well in high-cycle applications such as waste, recycling and demolition. The 175, 190, 205, 190T and 205T models offer vertical lift, which provides maximum reach at full height—an important consideration when loading dump trucks, lifting pallets or using an auger attachment.
