The JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader with telescopic boom receives new product award from Landscape & Irrigation magazine.

“The JCB Teleskid was designed and built here in the U.S., and it’s very rewarding to see it receive such a positive reception from landscaping contractors ..." -- Richard Fox-Marrs, president and CEO, JCB North America

The JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader has been recognized by Landscape and Irrigation magazine in its prestigious “Twenty for 2017” awards for the best new products in the commercial landscaping and irrigation market. The JCB Teleskid is the world’s first and only skid steer and compact track loader with a telescopic boom, allowing landscape contractors to lift above 13 feet, reach forward 8 feet and dig 3 feet below grade.

“The JCB Teleskid was designed and built here in the United States, and it’s very rewarding to see it receive such a positive reception from landscaping contractors across North America and around the world,” said Richard Fox-Marrs, president and CEO of JCB North America. “We’re very excited that Landscape & Irrigation has recognized the Teleskid’s unique capabilities and how they benefit contractors out in the field. The Teleskid truly is unmatched in today’s equipment marketplace.”

Based on JCB’s proven large-platform skid steer design, the Teleskid is available in the 3TS-8W wheeled and 3TS-8T track models. The machine’s single-arm, telescopic boom design allows landscape contractors to perform tasks not possible with conventional skid steers, such as loading high-sided trucks without a ramp, reaching across a standard 8-foot-wide trailer, digging or clearing drainage ditches and mowing down sloped surfaces.

Unlike other skid steers, the 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. Additionally, 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.
