The JCB Teleskid is the only skid steer or compact track loader with a telescopic boom, allowing it to reach 60 percent further and lift 8 percent higher than any skid steer on the market, and—in an industry first—it can dig to a depth of 3 feet. The Teleskid is also the only skid steer to offer the advantages of vertical lift—for greater lift capacity and lift height—and radial lift—for improved excavating and grading—in a single machine. Combining the capabilities of a forklift, telescopic handler, compact loader and a skid steer, the Teleskid offers unmatched versatility on the job site. Load high-sided trucks without first having to build a ramp. Reach both sides of an 8-foot trailer without having to drive to the far side or reposition the trailer. Lift and place materials and supplies over silt fences and other barriers. Dig out trees and roots, or clear a drainage ditch. Never before have you been able to accomplish these tasks with a skid steer. NOW YOU CAN. Based on JCB’s proven large-platform skid steer design, the 3TS-8W wheeled model has a rated operating capacity of 3,208 lb retracted, or 1,300 lb with the boom fully extended, and an SAE operating weight of 9,859 lb. Proudly designed and built in the United States by the men and women of JCB North America.
