The JCB 135 HD skid steer is designed with safety to the fore. Our unique PowerBoom single loader arm design means operators can enter the machine from the side, avoiding slip hazards, crush hazards and contact with the loader arm and its attachments. It’s also got 60% better visibility than the average skid loader, partly due to a low profile single rear loader tower and the absence of a conventional large rear torque tube.

Then there’s the fuel tank, integrated into the skid steer’s chassis for added protection; and the hoses, safely run through the PowerBoom to reduce the possibility of damage.
