UK equipment maker JCB recently unveiled a new generation of skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders. The new loaders will be designed and manufactured in North America, which generates an estimated 60% of the worldwide demand for this product category.
Seven models — four wheeled and three tracked — can be outfitted with more than 30 types of JCB attachments and feature an operating capacity starting at 2,600 lbs. The series carries over the same single-arm or monoboom design that allows for safe and convenient side entry but adds a new vertical lift pattern to allow for increased reach at full lift height.
The price ranges from $35,000 to $60,000, depending on model and configuration. For more information, call JCB’s North American headquarters at 912/447-2000 or visit www.jcbna.com.
