Designed for comfort, safety, economy, productivity and durability in Savannah, GA, the 260Ts 74lb (55kW) JCB EcoMax engine is durable and highly efficient.
The 260T has on average 60% better visibility and a 33% larger cab than competitive model compact track loaders, and there are a whole host of other benefits as well. Like ergonomic controls, an extremely tough PowerBoom and a low cost of ownership.
All of which helps to make our large platform compact track loaders 21% more productive in performance tests against the competition*.
* Based on faster speed of getting in/out and faster startup times
The JCB 260T compact track loader is designed with safety in mind. Our unique PowerBoom design means operators can enter the machine from the left side, avoiding slip and crush hazards and contact with the loader arm and its attachments.
Its also got 60% better visibility than the average compact track loader, partly due to a low profile single rear loader tower and the absence of a conventional large rear torque tube.
Theres the lowest entry step in the industry, a front windshield that doubles as an emergency exit and a standard rear view mirror. The fuel tank is integrated into the chassis for added protection; and the hoses, safely run through the PowerBoom to reduce the possibility of damage.
Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why weve designed the 260T compact track loader with a 33% larger cab than the nearest competitive machine. Our standard seat has mechanical suspension and theres 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 the JCB 260T compact track loader is a favorite for comfort among operators.
Theres no more productive compact track loader than the JCB 260T. The figures speak for themselves: it has a 16% lower cost of ownership than other compact track loaders, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel savings of over 1,050 gallon/3,975 liters* and a heavy-duty crowd ram thats nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competitor.
Theres a standard mechanical quickhitch and auxiliary couplers on the PowerBoom too. In short, its as productive as a compact track loader gets.
* based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week.
Weve designed the 260T compact track loader 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 compact track loaders.
Weve 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. Theres excellent service access through the rear service door and a gas strut-assisted tilting cooling pack.
So its no wonder the JCB 260T large platform compact track loader is on average 24% more serviceable than competitive machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores.
