The largest of our skid steer loaders to offer radial lift, the large platform JCB 225 (rated operating capacity of 1021 kg) 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 225’s 55.2 kW JCB Dieselmax engine is durable and hugely efficient.
The 225 has on average 60% better visibility and a 33% 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.
All of which helps to make our large platform skid steer loaders 21% more productive in performance tests against the competition*.
* Based on faster speed of getting in/out and faster startup times.
There are no more productive skid steer loaders than the JCB 225. 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 3975 litres* 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 skid steers get.
* based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week.
Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed our 225 model of skid steer loaders with a 33% 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.
Servo-assisted controls make handling smooth and intuitive; all in all, we like to think that JCB 225 skid steers are a comfortable favourite with operators.
We’ve designed our range of skid steer loaders to be serviced easily, 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 radiator.
So it’s no wonder our large platform skid steer loaders are on average 24% more serviceable than competitors’ machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores. And there’s more too.
