3TS-8T AG Compact Track Loader

Thanks to an industry-first telescopic boom, the JCB Teleskid skid steer and compact track loader is able to reach 60 percent further and lift 8 percent higher than any skid steer on the market, and—in an another industry first—it can dig to a depth of 3 feet.

The Teleskid is also the only skid steer to offer the benefits of radial lift capability—for improved excavating and grading—and vertical lift capability—for greater lift capacity and lift height—in a single skid steer machine.

Combining the capabilities of a telescopic handler, compact tractor, compact loader, forklift and a skid steer, the Teleskid offers unmatched versatility on the job site. Load high-sided trucks and feed bins without first having to build a ramp. Reach both sides of an 8-foot flatbed trailer without having to drive to the far side or reposition the trailer. Lift and stack large hay bales higher, to clear more floor space. Push, dig and scoop material. Mow down a slope or dig out a tree root. Never before have you been able to accomplish these tasks with a skid steer. NOW YOU CAN.

Based on JCB’s proven large-platform skid steer design, the 3TS-8T tracked model has a rated operating capacity of 3,695 lb retracted, or 1,600 lb with the boom fully extended, and an SAE operating weight of 12,615 lb.

Proudly designed and built in the United States by the men and women of JCB North America.

Combine the capabilities of four conventional machine types, with a SAE/ISO standard quick hitch and you have the combination for unbeatable productivity and efficiency. Load and unload both sides of a standard, 8-foot trailer from just one side. Load a high-sided trailer or stack items without building a ramp. Lift and place over an obstacle rather than removing or driving around it.

A proven JCB EcoMAX engine delivers increased performance at low engine speed for improved cycle times, with no requirement for a costly, productivity-sapping diesel particulate filter (DPF). Teleskid offers greater tractive force and pushing power than a small telehandler or forklift, and breakout force that will rival may bigger machines.

With an SAE operating weight of 12,615 lb for the compact track loader and 9,859 lb for the skid steer loader, the JCB Teleskid can easily be transported on a trailer.

Now you can.


The JCB Teleskid does the work of four machines – forklift, telescopic handler, compact loader and, of course, a skid steer. It is the only skid steer or compact tracked loader with a vertical reach of over 13 feet, a forward reach of 8 feet and, for the first time in a skid steer, the ability to dig 3 feet below the ground.

Additionally, Teleskid combines the advantages of vertical lift – for greater lift capacity and lift height – and radial lift – for improved excavating and grading – in a single machine.

The tracked model has a rated operating capacity of 3,695 lb retracted, or 1,600 lb with the boom fully extended. The wheeled model rates at 3,208 lb and 1,300 lb respectively.

Teleskid’s bucket-positioning leveling system is active when the boom is raised or lowered, making it easier to keep gravel, mulch, dirt and other materials in the bucket.

JCB is the only manufacturer that offers a side-entry door on its skid steer and compact track loaders. Not only does this allow the door to be up to twice the size of the competition, and therefore more comfortable to use, but it makes JCB the safest skid steer on the market as operators are not required to climb over attachments or under an unsupported boom.

The JCB Teleskid mono-boom provides an exceptional 270-degree field of vision, 60 percent better compare to conventional twin arm design machines, for significantly improved safety of the operator and others on the job site. Visibility is further enhanced by the standard electronic quick hitch with a fully enclosed tilt cylinder, which limits view-obstructing material build-up. For maximum safety options, a dealer-fit flashing beacon and front screen guard are available.

Now you can.


The JCB Teleskid cab is 33 percent larger than the industry average and boasts a fully adjustable, heated, air-suspension seat, putting it in a class of its own for operator comfort.

With electric over hydraulic controls, optional switchable ISO/H-pattern controls, a 7-way multi-function joystick, and JCB's myCHOICE software to choose the level of joystick responsiveness, and you have a package that delivers unrivalled control.

 Now you can.


The JCB Teleskid features a tilting cab design and large rear service door for easy, ground-level access to daily maintenance points and the engine bay. The tilting cab can be operated by one person without needing to raise the boom. Hydraulic fittings with o-ring face seals reduce leaks and the associated downtime, and a standard automatic reverse fan keeps vital elements free of debris. Additionally, an air intake scavenge system helps extend service intervals.
