One of the newest additions to our range of skid steer loaders, the small platform JCB 205 (rated operating capacity of 2,050 pounds (930 kg)) vertical lift model incorporates our unique single boom and side entry design. Designed for comfort, safety, economy, productivity and durability in the USA (home of skid steers), the 205’s 62-horsepower (46 kW) Kohler engine is tried, tested and proven.

The 205 has on average 60% better visibility and a 46% larger cab than rival manufacturers’ skid steer loaders, and there are a whole host of other benefits too. Like ergonomic controls, an extremely tough powerful boom and a low cost of ownership.

Standard Features

 The JCB 205 skid steer  loaders are 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.  
 There’s a front windshield that doubles as an emergency exit and a standard rear view mirror. Then there’s the fuel tank, integrated into the chassis for added protection; and the hoses, safely run through the PowerBoom to reduce the possibility of damage. In short, it's one of the safest skid steer loaders you can buy.  
 Safety in Numbers  
    The USA’s NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) has rewritten their safety guidance after recognising the many benefits of JCB’s PowerBoom side entry design  
    270° all-round visibility  
    JCB PowerBoom has up to 20% more steel in 1 boom than the twin arms of conventional designs  
    The emergency exit on our skid steers is over twice the size of that found in a conventional design  
Operator Comfort
 Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed or 205 model skid steer with a 46% larger cab than the nearest competitive machine. Our standard seat has mechanical suspension and there’s also a 12V charger, easily readable control panels and an electronic hand throttle.  
 Electric controls make handling smooth and intuitive; all in all, we like to think that JCB 205 skid steers are a comfortable favorite with operators.  
 There’s no more productive compact skid steer than the JCB 205. The figures speak for themselves: it has a 16% lower cost of ownership than the top competitor, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel savings of over 647 gals. (2,450 l)* and a heavy-duty crowd ram that’s nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competition.  
 There’s a standard mechanical quickhitch and auxiliary couplers on the PowerBoom too. In short, it’s as productive as a compact skid steer gets.  
 *Based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week   
 Fast Entry and Exit Speeds  
    Side entry makes a JCB skid steer 17% quicker in applications requiring multiple entries and exits, such as some agricultural tasks  
 We’ve designed our range of skid steer loader range to be extremely serviceable, ensuring minimum downtime. Firstly, we mount our engines longitudinally for easy access to the drive belt and associated components. There are also 30% fewer grease points than average vertical lift twin arm skid steers.  
 We’ve installed front and rear chassis clean out plates, with a fluid drain point in the rear one, as well as durable O-ring face seals on all hydraulic fittings. There’s excellent service access through the rear service door and gas strut-assisted tilting cooling pack.  
 So it’s no wonder our small platform skid steer loaders are on average 21% more serviceable than competitors’ machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores. And there's more too.  
 Even More Serviceability  
    Easy-to-service hydraulically-driven variable speed fan  
    Cab can be easily tilted by 1 person for hose access  
    Daily check points are grouped and easily accessible  
    Chassis has an integrated fuel tank and drain point
