205

One of the newest additions to our range of skid steer loaders, the small platform JCB 205 (rated operating capacity of 930 kg) vertical lift model incorporates our unique single boom and side entry design. Designed for comfort, safety, economy, productivity and durability in the USA (home of skid steers), the 205’s 44.7 kW Perkins engine is tried, tested and proven.

The 205 has on average 60% better visibility and a 46% larger cab than rival manufacturers’ skid steer loaders, and there are a whole host of other benefits too. Like ergonomic controls, an extremely tough powerful boom and a low cost of ownership.

  • Class leading safety
  • Class leading visibility
  • Large, comfortable, ergonomic cab
  • Class leading serviceability
  • Lowest cost of ownership

OPERATOR COMFORT

Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed our 205 model skid steer with a 46% larger cab than the nearest competitive machine. Our standard seat has mechanical suspension and there’s also a 12V charger, easily readable control panels and an electronic hand throttle.

Electric controls make handling smooth and intuitive; all in all, we like to think that JCB 205 skid steers are a comfortable favourite with operators.

PRODUCTIVITY

There are no more productive skid steer loaders than the JCB 205. The figures speak for themselves: it has a 16% lower cost of ownership than the top competitor, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel savings of over 2450 litres* and a heavy-duty crowd ram that’s nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competition.

There’s a standard mechanical quickhitch and auxiliary couplers on the PowerBoom too. In short, it’s as productive as skid steers get.

* – based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week.

SERVICEABILITY

We’ve designed our range of skid steer loaders to be extremely serviceable, ensuring minimum downtime. Firstly, we mount our engines longitudinally for easy access to the drive belt and associated components. There are also 30% fewer grease points than average vertical lift twin arm skid steers.

We’ve installed front and rear chassis clean out plates, with a fluid drain point in the rear one, as well as durable O-ring face seals on all hydraulic fittings. There’s excellent service access through the rear service door and gas strut-assisted tilting cooling pack.

So it’s no wonder our small platform skid steer loaders are on average 21% more serviceable than competitors’ machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores. And there’s more too.
