The small platform 612kg rated operating capacity JCB 135 radial lift skid steer is the smallest model in our revolutionary range.

Our unique single boom and side entry design makes this skid steer loader comfortable, safe, economical, productive and tough. Designed and built in the USA (home of the skid steer), the 135’s 34 kW engine delivers impressive performance and low operating costs.



JCB’s Smoothride System (SRS) allows the boom and load to move independently of the chassis, ensuring improved load retention and operator comfort. In turn, this means faster loading cycles and journey times.

  • Optional parallel lift helps to keep loads level throughout the lift cycle, which is ideal for carrying palletised loads.
  • Standard mechanical or optional hydraulic quickhitches are designed to meet stringent JCB standards; they make for quick and efficient attachment changes.
  • For the ultimate in versatile performance, our high flow hydraulics mean you can choose from a huge range of 31 different attachment types.
  • Radial lift provides improved digging geometry with more reach at the midpoint of the lift cycle (perfect for excavating).


Access to a JCB 135 skid steer loader is provided via a door that’s more than double the size of rival offerings.

  • Fully adjustable mechanical suspension seat (or an optional heated air suspension variant) for optimum comfort.
  • Low effort servo-assisted controls make it easier to operate your skid steer.
  • Three settings allow operators to choose the sensitivity of joystick movement; this makes it quick and straightforward to tailor controls to specific tasks or conditions.
  • An optional multi-function joystick enables operators to use a wide array of hydraulic attachments.


The JCB 135 benefits from our unique PowerBoom design – a single-sided reinforced high tensile strength steel boom, with internal baffle plates for added strength, constructed from 20% more steel than rival twin-arm designs.

  • The PowerBoom structure provides a safe route for hydraulic hoses so that they’re well protected from damage.
  • To ensure optimum precision and build quality, we use advanced manufacturing and assembly processes during the manufacture of key components.
  • A large loader arm cross-member provides added strength: vital for when you’re using a standard mechanical quickhitch or the optional hydraulic variant.


All daily checks and greasing can be performed at ground level. Daily maintenance points, pre-filters, oil and air filters are easy to access via a large, rear service door.

  • Hydraulics use O-ring face seals and incorporate 38 percent fewer parts than outgoing designs. The end result is reduced downtime.
  • When it comes to more complex maintenance, our tilting cab design ensures easy access to key components. It only takes one person to tilt the cab for excellent access to your skid steer loader’s internals.
