The new small platform 1900lb (862kg) rated operating capacity JCB 190 vertical lift skid steer incorporates our unique single boom and side entry design. Designed for comfort, safety, economy, productivity and durability in the USA (home of skid steer loaders), the 190’s 62hp (46kW) Kohler engine is tried, tested and proven.
The 190 has on average 60% better visibility and a 46% larger cab than rival manufacturers’ skid loader designs, and there are a whole host of other benefits too. Like ergonomic controls, an extremely tough powerful boom and a low cost of ownership.
Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed the 190 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 190 skid steer loaders are a comfortable favorite with operators.
There’s no more productive skid loader than the JCB 190. 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 gal (2450 liters)* 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 steer loaders get.
* – 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.
The JCB 190 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 average skid steer loaders, partly due to a low profile single rear loader tower and the absence of a conventional large rear torque tube.
There’s a front windscreen 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.
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 degree all-round visibility.
- JCB PowerBoom has up to 20% more steel in one boom than the twin arms of conventional designs.
- Our skid steer’s emergency exit is over twice the size of that found in a conventional design.
We’ve designed the JCB 190 skid steer 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 conventional vertical lift twin arm skid steer loaders.
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 the JCB 190 small platform skid loader is 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 one person for hose access.
- Daily check points are grouped and easily accessible.
- Chassis has an integrated fuel tank and drain point.
