It’s more important than ever to save money and time so it’s just as well that JCB JS260 tracked excavators are designed to make the most of both.

Our Tier 4 interim compliant Isuzu engine has a high power rating 188hp (147kW); yet, because it produces high torque at low revs, it’s very efficient too.

A massive 43,163lbf (192kN) bucket tearout makes our JS260 360 excavators up to 15% more productive than the closestcompetitors. Better still, a dipper tearout of 40,204lbf (179kN) is up to 39% greater than the competition. The special JS range quickhitch system makes attachment changing fast and easy.

Simultaneous tracking and excavating is smooth and fast with an intuitive multifunction operation, and four operating work modes allow a JS260 26 ton excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.

Maximum productivity minimum spend

  • JCB’s tracked excavators use hydraulic regeneration to recycle oil across the cylinders for faster cycle times and reduced fuel consumption.
  • Auto-idle technology automatically reduces engine speed when hydraulics aren’t in use.
