JCB’s answer to providing power in confined spaces

JCB compact track loaders

JCB recently launched its new 210T and 215T compact track loaders.

The new machines, according to JCB, offer the power and performance of large-platform compact track loaders, but are easily towable machines weighing less than 4,535 kg.

The 210T and the 215T are powered by the proven 74 hp JCB Diesel by Kohler engine, which does not require a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) or Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).

The radial lift 210T model has a rated operating capacity of 862 kg at 35 per cent tipping load and 1,202 at 50 per cent tipping load.

The 215T vertical lift model has a rated operating capacity of 953 kg at 35 per cent tipping load and 1,361 kg at 50 per cent tipping load. The rated operating capacity of both models may be increased with an optional bolt-on chassis counterweight package. As well, both machines are capable of operating high flow attachments up to 114 litres per minute.

“The 210T and 215T are the latest in the company’s range of skid steers and compact track loaders that are designed and manufactured in the United States,” said Randy Tinley, JCB’s product manager for skid steers and compact track loaders. “The horsepower-to-weight ratio of these machines make them ideal for confined work spaces where increased lift capability is required. These are the smallest compact track loaders available that can lift a standard pallet of sod or bricks, or a wet round hay bale.”

Featuring JCB’s unique single boom design, the 210T and 215T provide operators with 60 per cent better visibility than conventional twin-arm skid steer designs, for safer operation and easier changing of attachments and placing or loading material, according to the company.

Entry to the cab, which is up to 46 per cent larger than comparably sized compact track loaders, is also simplified and made safer by a wide-opening side door.
