JCB is launching two new wheeled skid steer loaders — the 210 radial lift model offers a base rated operating capacity (ROC) of 2,100 lbs. (950 kg), while the new 215 vertical lift model boasts an ROC of 2,150 lbs. (975 kg).
The operating capacity of both the 210 and 215 models can be increased by an additional 200 lbs. (90 kg), to 2,300 lbs. (1,040 kg) and 2,350 lbs. (1,065 kg) respectively, with an optional, dealer-fitted “suitcase” counterweight kit.
More Power and Functionality
The ROC of the 210 and 215 will allow operators to take full advantage of the high-flow auxiliary hydraulic circuit, delivering 30 gpm, to power a range of high-flow attachments such as cold planers, augers and trenchers.
JCB Chief Innovation and Growth Officer Tim Burnhope said: “The 210 and 215 deliver the high-horsepower benefits of larger skid steers to operators of light-frame skid steer platforms. High-flow hydraulics allow our operators to perform more tasks more efficiently, use a greater range of attachments, and complete tasks faster.”
Additionally, the new 210 and 215 are the first in JCB's small-frame skid steer line up to be powered by the JCB by Kohler 74 hp (55 kW) engine, which offers a 20 percent increase in horsepower over comparably-sized skid steers in the JCB range, yet requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF). Both machines are Stage III B/Tier IV Final compliant.
“The combination of more horsepower and a high-flow hydraulics system really reinforces the versatility of these incredible new skid steer machines, and expands the range of projects to which light-framed JCB skid steers can be applied. The added benefit of all that additional power is that these machines will not be required to run at full capacity all the time, which means less stress on the systems and drivetrain, resulting in more uptime,” Burnhope said.
The JCB 210 and 215 skid steers feature JCB's single PowerBoom design with exclusive side door entry, resulting in increased safety, 60 percent better visibility and a 46 percent larger cab than other models in this size class, according to the manufacturer.
