JCB has designed its new compact track loaders, the 210T and 215T, to be small enough for work in confined spaces, but packed it with enough power for lifting a pallet of sod or brick.

The machines weigh less than 10,000 pounds each and have 74-horsepower JCB Diesel by Kohler engines that require no diesel particulate filter or diesel exhaust fluid.

The radial-lift 210T has a rated operating capacity of 1,900 pounds at 35 percent of tipping load and 2,650 pounds at 50 percent. The vertical-lift 215T has a rated operating capacity of 2,100 pounds at 35 percent tipping load and 3,000 pounds at 50 percent. An optional bolt-on chassis counterweight allows additional capacity.

Both machines can operate high-flow of attachments of up to 30 gallons per minute, the company says. They have JCB’s single boom design, which gives operators 60 percent more visibility than conventional twin-arm skid steer designs, the company says.

JCB also says it simplified the cab, added a wide-opening side door and made it 46 percent larger than CTLs of similar size.
