The skid steer loader is a JCB machine that’s perfect for all sorts of applications across Africa. Combining the compact size and manoeuvrability of a forklift truck with the telescopic lifting capability and all-round visibility of a telehandler, the skid steer is a superbly versatile machine.

Our skid steer loaders are quite simply the safest, most economical in Africa (and indeed the rest of the world). Our innovative sideways entry design averts crush and slip hazards, and bestows class-leading visibility. We’ve also built in best-in-class service access – a JCB skid steer has 21% better serviceability, 30% fewer grease points and a 16% lower cost of ownership than rival machines (which typically have front entry).

All of which makes our large platform models consistently the most productive skid steer loaders by 21% according to performance tests. Even more so when you consider that JCB’s extensive African network is all part of the package, guaranteeing you access to all the dealerships, expertise and parts backup you need.
