Our large platform 2,600-pound (1,179 kg) rated operating capacity JCB 260T vertical lift compact track loader incorporates our unique single boom and side entry design. Designed for comfort, safety, economy, productivity and durability in the USA (home of tracked loaders), the 260T’s 74-horsepower (55 kW) JCB EcoMAX engine is durable and hugely efficient.
The 260T has on average 60% better visibility and a 33% larger cab than rival manufacturers’ tracked skid steer loaders, and there are a whole host of other benefits as well. Like ergonomic controls, an extremely tough powerful boom 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.
Engine & Drivetrain
|The JCB 260T compact track loader is designed with safety in mind. Our unique PowerBoom single loader arm 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.|
|With 60% better visibility than competitive tracked skid steer, partly due to a low profile single rear loader tower and the absence of a conventional large rear torque tube.|
|There's the lowest entry step in the industry, 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 recognizing the many benefits of JCB’s PowerBoom side entry design|
|270° all-round visibility|
|JCB PowerBoom has up to 20% more steel in 1 boom than the twin arms of conventional designs|
|Our compact track loader's emergency exit is over twice the size of that found in a conventional design|
|Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed the 260T compact track loader with a 33% 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.|
|Servo-assisted controls make handling smooth and intuitive; all in all, we like to think the JCB 260T compact track loader is a comfortable favorite with operators.|
|There’s no more productive tracked skid steer than the JCB 260T. The figures speak for themselves: it has a 16% lower cost of ownership than other tracked loaders, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel saving of over 1,050 gals. (3,975 l)* and a heavy-duty crowd ram that’s nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competitor.|
|There’s a standard mechanical quickhitch and auxiliary couplers on the PowerBoom too. In short, it’s as productive as a compact track loader gets.|
|*Based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week|
|Fast Entry and Exit Speeds|
|Side entry makes a JCB tracked skid steer 17% quicker in applications requiring multiple entries and exits, such as some agricultural tasks|
|We’ve 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 tracked 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 260T small platform compact track loader is on average 24% more serviceable than competitors’ machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores.|
|Even More Serviceability|
|Easy-to-service hydraulically-driven variable speed fan|
|Cab can be easily tilted by 1 person for hose access|
|Daily check points are grouped and easily accessible|
|Chassis has an integrated fuel tank and drain point|
