The JCB JS260 delivers outstanding power and performance and is also available with a Long Reach front end.

Power / Performance

  • The Isuzu high performance six-cylinder turbo-charged engine has legendary reliability. Its in-line, direct injection fuel system delivers long-term efficiency for low fuel consumption.
  • 3 travel speeds can be selected via the joystick controller
    • High Range for fast ravel across the job site
    • Medium Range for more attractive effort in difficult conditions
    • Low Range for greater precision and control
  • 4 work modes can be selected to maximize productivity, fuel economy and control by matching the machine's output to the operating conditions:
    • Auto Mode: Automatically gives you maximum power when you need it
    • Economy Mode: Designed for maximum fuel efficiency in normal digging conditions
    • Precision Mode: Gives you more control and accuracy for fine work and grading
    • Lifting Mode: Gives you maximum power with controllability.

    Reliability / Economy

  • The unique JCB Plexus filter cleans the hydraulic oil down to 1.5 microns providing ultimate protection for the hydraulic system and allows for extended service intervals - 5,000 hour hydraulic oil change and 1,000 hours on the filter.
  • An electric fuel pump, fitted as standard, speeds refueling to minimize downtime.
  • The heavy duty "X" frame type undercarriage is integrally welded for strength and durability, with excellent ground clearance. Underbelly guarding provides added protection for arduous work sites.
  • Automatic pre-heat glow plugs mean first-time starting whatever the climate.

    Operator Comfort

  • Six fluid filled resilient mountings insulated the cab against noise and vibration while minimizing movement when tracking over rough ground.
  • The comfortable, 6-way adjustable seat allows the operator to find the best position in relation to the controls.
  • Large glass areas mean excellent visibility especially low down to the operator's left or right and to the rear of the machine over the low hood line and rounded counterweight.
  • The in-cab pattern change switch allows the operator to easily choose between backhoe or excavator controls.
