46 Compact Equipment JULY/AUGUST 2018 T R A C K L O A D E R S JCB Offering a Wide Range of U.S.-Manufactured Side-Entry Loaders Advice to Buyers "When purchasing a com- pact track loader, track choice is an important consideration to ensure your machine per- forms to its full potential," says Chris Trampush, JCB North America's product manager for skid steers and compact track loaders. "Turf tracks, for example, are best suited for applications where extreme ground care is need- ed, whereas a more aggressive track pattern will be neces- sary for extra traction on wet or loose-packed ground. For snow removal applications, consider snow tracks that of- fer better traction, smoother turning and shorter stopping distances. Choose the type of track to suit the ground condi- tions that you expect to work in most often, and you'll most often get the best return on your machine investment." J CB entered the skid steer market in 1993 and began producing compact track loaders in 2001. In 2017, JCB revamped its model lineup to provide a full com- plement of large- and small-platform skid steers and compact track loaders, and in 2017 launched the all-new Teleskid compact track loader with a telescopic boom, offering greater lift, reach and dig depth than any compact track loader on the mar- ket. Today, JCB markets six large-platform track models (the 250T, 270T, 300T, 320T, 3TS-8T Teleskid and the forestry-specific 325T) and three small-platform machines (the 150T, 210T and 215T) for a total of nine compact track loaders offering vertical or radial lift. All JCB skid steers and compact track loaders are compliant with Tier 4 Final regulations and are powered by JCB's Tier 4 Final JCB Ecomax engine or JCB Diesel by Kohler engines. All JCB compact track loaders meet Tier 4 Final emissions stan- dards without the need for exhaust aftertreatment, allowing greater fuel efficiency and reduced downtime and operating costs. JCB's compact track loaders feature the company's iconic single-arm 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 compact track loaders. The unique boom configuration also allows Model Engine Horsepower Net HP Operating Capacity 50 Percent Operating Capacity 35 Percent Operating Weight (Ground Pressure) Tip Load Lift Height (Orientation) Height to Hinge Pin 150T 56 hp 2,143 lbs 1,500 lbs 8,137 lbs (NA) 4,334 lbs 9 ft, 11 in.
