The 210T and the 215T are powered by the proven 74 hp (55 kW) JCB Diesel by Kohler engine, requiring no DPF and no DEF. The radial lift 210T model has a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 1,900 lb at 35 percent tipping load and 2,650 lb at 50 percent tipping load. The 215T vertical lift model has an ROC of 2,100 lb at 35 percent tipping load and 3,000 lb at 50 percent tipping load. The ROC of both models can be increased with an optional bolt-on chassis counterweight package, and both are capable of operating high flow attachments up to 30 gallons per minute.
“The 210T and 215T are the latest in the company’s range of skid steers and compact track loaders that are designed and manufactured in the United States,” said Randy Tinley, JCB product manager for skid steers and compact track loaders. “The horsepower-to-weight ratio of these machines make them ideal for confined work spaces where increased lift capability is required. These are the smallest compact track loaders available that can lift a standard pallet of sod or bricks, or a wet round hay bale.”
Featuring JCB’s unique single boom design, the 210T and 215T provide operators with 60 percent better visibility than conventional twin-arm skid steer designs, for safer operation and easier changing of attachments and placing or loading material. Entry to the cab, which is up to 46 percent larger than comparably sized compact track loaders, is also simplified and made safer by a wide-opening side door.
