With its first major redesign of the Robot skid-steer and compact-track-loader family, JCB expanded upon the ergonomic and safety benefits of its single loader arm design. The door hinge has been moved from the front pillar to the B pillar, improving cab entry and exit. JCB remains the only skid-steer manufacturer to offer a single-sided loading arm, allowing for a full side door. With the Robot Series II, the instrument panel has been lowered to provide better visibility at full lift height. Joined by JCB's first mid-sized 1,800-pound-capacity skid-steer, the four pre-existing skid-steer and three track-loader models offer increased bucket breakout forces and hydraulic pressure and flow. Estimated list price: $25,900 to $34,700.
