Available in wheeled and tracked models, the JCB Teleskid has been named the "Most Innovative Loader of the Year" in Compact Equipment magazine's 2017 Innovative Iron Awards.

“The JCB Teleskid was designed and built in the United States, to meet the needs of construction, rental and agricultural customers in North America and around the world." -- Randy Tinley, Product Manager for Skid Steers & Compact Track Loaders, JCB North America

The JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader has been named the “Most Innovative Loader of the Year” in Compact Equipment magazine’s 2017 Innovative Iron Awards.

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 over 13 feet, reach 8 feet forward, and dig 3 feet below grade. It is also the only skid steer to combine the advantages of radial lift—for improved excavating and grading—and vertical lift—for greater lift capacity and lift height—in a single machine.

“The JCB Teleskid was designed and built in the United States, to meet the needs of construction, rental and agricultural customers in North America and around the world,” said Randy Tinley, product manager for skid steer and compact track loaders at JCB North America. “Because the Teleskid does the work of four machines – a telescopic handler, masted forklift, compact loader and a skid steer—JCB customers are rethinking how they utilize skid steers and compact track loaders to make their operations more efficient and their businesses more successful.”

Available in wheeled and track models, the JCB Teleskid performs time- and cost-saving tasks not possible with conventional skid steers, such as reaching across a standard 8-foot-wide trailer, loading high-sided trucks without a ramp, and digging drainage ditches.
