JCB Nine Side-Entry Skid Steers, Including the World's First Telescoping Boom Advice to Buyers "Buyers should consider how the machine's ride will affect their productivity, comfort and the efficiency of their operations. A good ex- ample would be an optional smooth ride system that cush- ions the loader arm to ensure more of the load stays in the bucket, which dramatically improves efficiency," says Chris Trampush, JCB North American product manager for skid steers and compact track loaders. "And, of course safety should be top of mind for everyone, so I encourage customers to consider the benefits of a single-arm ma- chine, not just for the side en- try door, which eliminates the need to climb over slippery attachments but also provides a much less obstructed view to the attachment and the en- tire jobsite." I n 1993, JCB entered the skid steer market with the first mono-boom, side-entry skid steer, leveraging the company's decades of experience as a manufacturer of telescopic handlers. Over the years, JCB's skid steer line has evolved, going from the Series I and Series II machines to its New Generation models. In 2017, the com- pany launched the 3TS-8W Teleskid, the world's first skid steer with a telescopic boom offering greater lift, reach and dig depth than any skid steer on the market. The company's skid steer range includes both large and small platform models of- fering vertical or radial lift. Today, JCB's skid steers are designed for the active North American market and global applications. The company offers five large platform machines — the 250, 270, 300, 330 and 3TS-8W — and four small platform models — the 155, 175, 210 and 215. JCB's skid steers feature the company's iconic single-arm JCB Powerboom for enhanced operator safety. JCB's side-door entry means that operators are not required to climb over a cumbersome attachment or under an unsupported boom to enter or exit the cab, as they do with conventional skid steer loaders.
