SSL 3TS-8W 3x2


Load a lorry without a ramp, with Teleskid’s 3.1 metre dump height.

  • Reaching to over 13ft in height lets you easily and quickly load trucks or feeders without needing a ramp.
  • With a 3695Ib (3TS-8T) lift capacity, the JCB Teleskid can handle the heaviest of loads.
  • Standard 2-speed transmission helps achieve quicker travel and cycle times.


Set a pallet on the second floor, then grade a site, with Teleskid’s extending boom.

  • The boom is mounted on a single-piece fully welded chassis to maximize strength and minimize weight.
  • High strength steel boom has reduced joints, stress points and single piece u-pressed design.
  • JCB’s Teleskid mono-boom design provides an exceptional 270º field of vision. Laminate side glass instead of the usual mesh further contributes to better all-round visibility.


Reach across a retaining wall, with Teleskid’s 2.2 metre forward reach.

  • A vertical reach of over four metres and a forward reach of over two metres, allowing it to go places and do things others can’t.
  • Reach approximately 1 metre below the ground, enabling you to rip out trees and roots.
  • A standard hydraulic flow rate of 90 l/pm allows you to operate attachments when fully extended whilst 125lpm high flow couplers allow safe operation of high flow attachments when the boom is fully retracted.


Dig down into the ground, with Teleskid’s 1 metre reach below the wheels.

  • Load and unload a standard 8ft trailer from one side, increasing turnaround time.
  • Standard electric quick hitch provides less material build up and better load visibility.
  • A solid undercarriage with cast steel, triple flanged rollers provide excellent track retention.


Reach over a load without running into it, with Teleskid’s 2.2 metre forward reach.

  • The first skid steer and compact track loader with both vertical and radial lift.
  • With a SAE operating weight of 12615lbs on the compact track loader and 9859lbs on the skid steer loader, the JCB Teleskid can easily be transported between sites on a trailer.
  • At full extension the compact track loader has 1600lb load capacity and the skid steer loader has  1300lb capacity enabling heavy items to be placed without damaging the ground.
