Robot skid steer loader updated

AN UPDATE for JCBs Robot skid steer loader range – the 150, 165 and 165 Hi Flow models – has resulted in more power and an option for conventional skid steer controls.

Out goes the Peugeot engine and in comes a 2.2-litre Perkins rated at 50hp – an increase of 16%.

The conventional skid steer controls option is intended to provide easier acclimatisation for operators used to using other skid steer brands.

A further concession has been to make the Robot compatible with Bobcat attachments.

Conventional controls are not optional for the JCBrobot.
