JCB have revealed their latest innovation the JCB Teleskid at the Conexpo trade show recently. JCB chief innovation and growth officer Tim Burnhope commented: “The JCB Teleskid can do the work of four machines – a telescopic handler, masted forklift, compact loader and a skid steer, all in one easily-serviced machine. The telescopic boom will allow operators to load trucks without a ramp, reach over kerbing and dig below ground, all with clear visibility of the attachment.”
This versatile machine is able to extend 2.4m forwards, which is 60% more than similar machines, lift to a height of 4m and can dig below its chassis up to a depth of approximately 1m. The vehicle is fitted with the 74hp/55kW JCB Ecomax engine ensuring compliance to strict European and American emission standards.
