There’s not a more productive skid steer than the JCB 135. The figures speak for themselves. It has a 16% lower total cost of ownership than the top competitive model in its size class, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel savings of over 2450 liters* and a heavy-duty crowd ram that’s nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competitive brand.

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

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


Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed the 135 skid steer loader 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 the JCB 135 skid steer loader is a  favorite for comfort among operators.


We’ve designed this skid steer to be easily serviced, 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 the average vertical lift twin arm skid steer.

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 a gas strut-assisted tilting cooling pack.

The JCB 135 small platform skid steer loader is on average 21% more serviceable than competitive models, based on SAE Service Audit Scores.
