TeleSkid gets on track

Already seen 12 months ago in a wheeled version, JCB’s tracked version of its TeleSkid, the 3TS-8T, runs on 450mm wide belts at speeds up to 12.6km/h.

 It is powered by JCB’s own 4.4L EcoMax, 4-cylinder engine delivering 74hp.

A 90L/min hydraulic system gives rapid cycling and a 120L/min upgrade option can be specified for high demand applications.

Already proven in the standard wheel format, the 3TS-8W tracked machine has more capacity due to its greater tare weight, pushing beyond the wheeled units’ 4.4 tonnes to a useful 5.7t. Rated capacity at full boom extension is 732kg.

Load-over heights of 2.9 - 3.8m and forward reach of 1.1 - 2.25m at ground level show the versatility of the telescopic layout.

The machine is good for loading or unloading bales, pallets, boxes and bags from one side of a road truck or farm trailer; users can switch between fixed or self-levelling bucket control that combines with the Smoothride suspension system for ultimate load control.

Additionally, operators can manipulate the boom to mimic the actions of a frontloader with vertical-lift geometry.
