Each model in the JCB small track loader line is constructed robust to tackle every application in any circumstances. They’ve earned that reputation. JCB’s compact track loaders are built with a fully-welded frame and a strong undercarriage made of cast steel, triple-flanged rollers that can withstand rough conditions. JCB’s single-arm PowerboomTM small track loader has tapered pivot pins and 20% more steel than typical twin-arm models. Increased stiffness, reduced wear, and better material retention are all a consequence of this. Hydraulic lines may also be protected from harm by the PowerboomTM’s internal routing. High-strength steel is used to build the fast hitch, incorporating high-strength welds to ensure long-term durability. The market’s largest fast hitch pivot pins are standard on JCB small track loaders to provide additional support and breakout force. This article will focus on the JCB 270T Skid Steer

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 270T Skid Steer compact track loaders established new norms for efficiency and production because of their versatility and power. Engine after treatment, such as DEF or DPF, is not required on any JCB small track loaders. Traditional skid steer cooling systems draw cold, clean air from the top and push heated air out the sides and back toward the operator. JCB machines do the opposite.

Hydraulic flow rates range from 18.5 gpm (70 lpm) on JCB small-platform machines to 26.4 gpm (100 lpm) or 30.5 gpm (115 lpm), depending on the model. For large-platform machines, the typical hydraulic circuit is 24 gallons per minute, with 31.7 gallons per minute (120 gallons per minute) or 33 gallons per minute (125) available. All JCB models may be equipped with an optional parallel lift to make it simpler to place cargo using forks or attachments. To increase load retention, operator comfort, and loading cycle speed, JCB offers the Smoothride System (SRS) option.

Operator Station and Comfort

For optimal output, JCB 270T compact track loaders provide unparalleled operator comfort. When it comes to operating small-platform excavators, there’s no comparison. JCB cabs are 33% bigger than the competition’s on large-platform machines. For safe access and departure, all JCB compact track loaders include a wide-opening side door that eliminates the need for operators to climb over attachments or under an unsupported boom. Users may customize the sensitivity of joystick movement using JCB’s myCHOICE control software. Standard features include ISO (single joystick transmission operation) and H-pattern controls, which may be customized to the user’s preferences. It has a built-in AUX connection that may be used to connect a mobile phone or other devices to the radio.

Load Arm and Attachments

According to JCB, the company’s Power boom loading arm has been lowered 2 inches lower than on prior models, giving the operator a better vision of the boom’s right side. The new Power boom has stronger and more durable double tapered pins in the boom mounting tower and a fast hitch and provides superior visibility. Additionally, the boom’s inner hoses were hardened to provide additional protection. As an added benefit, the boom has a bolt-on wear plate that protects the fast hitch from damage caused by repeated attachment and disconnection. New 250 and 270 versions include a 10 percent increase in bucket tear-out due to the larger diameter of the boom’s tilt cylinder. JCB has also moved the tilt cylinder to the end of the boom, making it easier to operate.

Maintenance Access

Pre-filters, oil filters, and air filters are all easily accessible via a big rear service door, allowing for all daily maintenance to be conducted on the ground level. Hydraulic fittings with O-ring face seals prevent leaks and downtime. JCB small track loaders have tilting cabs that can be opened in minutes by a single person and provide easier access to the machine’s undercarriage for servicing. JCB small track loaders have level flooring and no dirt-trapping footwells, making it simple to clean the engine compartment with a power washer.
