Thanks to an industry-first telescopic boom, the JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader is able to reach 60 percent further and lift 8 percent higher than any skid steer on the market, and—in an another industry first—it can dig to a depth of 3 feet.

The Teleskid is also the only skid steer to offer the benefits of radial lift capability—for improved excavating and grading—and vertical lift capability—for greater lift capacity and lift height—in a single skid steer 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-8T tracked model has a rated operating capacity of 3,695 lb retracted, or 1,600 lb with the book fully extended, and an SAE operating weight of 12,615 lb.

Proudly designed and built in the United States by the men and women of JCB North America.
