JCB's Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader has won Rental magazine's prestigious 2017 Editor's Choice Award for its innovative design and utility within the rental market.

“The JCB Teleskid does the work of four machines – a telescopic handler, masted forklift, compact loader and a skid steer – all in one easily-serviced machine, making it a perfect fit for the rental market." – Steve Fox, President of Direct Sales and Product, JCB North America.

The JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader has won a prestigious 2017 Editor’s Choice Award from Rental magazine in recognition of its innovative design, utility for the rental market and interest from end-users and rental professionals.

Launched in March 2017, the JCB Teleskid is the world’s only skid steer and compact track loader with a telescopic boom, allowing operators to lift above 13 feet, reach forward 8 feet and dig 3 feet below grade. It is also the only skid steer to combine 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 JCB Teleskid does the work of four machines – a telescopic handler, masted forklift, compact loader and a skid steer – all in one easily-serviced machine, making it a perfect fit for the rental market,” said Steve Fox, president of Direct Sales and Product for JCB North America. “The JCB Teleskid is designed and built here in the United States, and it’s very rewarding to see it receive such a positive reception from Rental magazine and rental professionals around the world.”

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 operators 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. 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.
