View Entire JCB Skid Loader Inventory

The JCB Teleskid does the work of four machines – forklift, telescopic handler, compact loader and, of course, a skid steer. It is the only skid steer or compact tracked loader with a vertical reach of over 13 feet, a forward reach of 8 feet and, for the first time in a skid steer, the ability to dig 3 feet below the ground.

The Teleskid combines the advantages of vertical lift – for greater lift capacity and lift height – and radial lift – for improved excavating and grading – in a single machine.

The wheeled model rates at 3,208 lb and 1,300 lb respectively.

Teleskid’s bucket-positioning leveling system is active when the boom is raised or lowered, making it easier to keep gravel, mulch, dirt and other materials in the bucket.
