“A big thank you from everyone at JCB to the thousands of people who entered the sweepstakes,” says Sophia Bellos, vice president of Marketing at JCB. “The JCB Teleskid is a game-changer for construction, landscaping and agriculture customers, and we’re looking forward to seeing how Mr. Latta will put the machine to use in his excavation and composting business.” 

Designed and built at JCB North America headquarters near Savannah, Georgia, the Teleskid is the world’s only skid steer and compact track loader with a telescopic boom. It has a lift height of 13 feet 3 inches – eight percent higher than any skid steer on the market – and forward reach of eight feet – 60 percent further its nearest competitor. It is also the only skid steer that can dig below grade, to a depth of three feet.

The Teleskid is available as a wheeled skid steer loader or compact track loader, with rated operating capacities of 3,208 lb and 3,695 lb, respectively.  The Teleskid is also the only skid steer to combine the advantages of radial lift—for efficient excavating and grading—and vertical lift—for optimal lift capacity and height—in a single machine.

Latta Earthworks, LLC provides excavation services and operates the Latta Earthworks Compost Site near Athens, Ohio. The company recycles farm and yard waste to create valuable compost and mulches for farms, landscapers and gardeners throughout central Ohio. 

“I’m very excited to win the ‘Win a Teleskid’ sweepstakes,” says Latta. “The Teleskid is going to help me achieve a whole new level of productivity in my business.”
