Increase strength and reduce stress
The JCB JS260 is the 26 tonne model in our heavy tracked excavators range. It’s engineered with exceptional strength, productivity, efficiency, comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.
A closed box section revolving frame increases strength and reduces stress. It also makes these excavators highly resistant to impact damage. We’ve used strong parts too – premium industry standards in fact.
Meanwhile, this 26 tonne excavator’s engine is a highly efficient Isuzu 140 kW, compliant with Stage 3b and Tier 4i. The benefits of the JS260 series of tracked excavators don’t end there either.
Before you buy tracked excavators, you need to know they’re going to be tough enough to perform any job you ask of them. Fortunately, with a JCB JS260, strength and durability come as standard.
We use Finite Element Analysis with extensive rig and endurance testing to make these 360 excavators last longer. A JCB JS260’s reinforced boom and dipper is made of high tensile strength steel, with single piecewrapper plates and internal baffle plates for long life durability.
The high-strength undercarriage of a JS260 26 tonne excavator is of a fully-welded X-frame construction for long-term durability even in the most demanding applications, and the rigid upper frame provides maximum durability and support.
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.
A massive 192kn bucket tearout makes our JS260 360 excavators up to 15% more productive than the closest competitors. Better still, a dipper tearout of 179 kN 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 tonne excavator operator to tailor performance to any application. Auto, Economy, Precision and Lifting modes provide very different optimised settings.
We’ve designed JCB JS260 tracked excavators to be low maintenance and easily serviceable. Which makes them affordable, efficient and highly productive.
Bonnets open and close easily with gas-assisted cylinders, and the service bays are large and wide for good access. 1000-hour boom and dipper greasing intervals and a 5000-hour oil life provide maximum uptime on these 360 excavators. Grease points are centralised on a JS260 26 tonne excavator too, for safe and easy access to high level pivots. Likewise filters (engine oil, hydraulic oil and fuel).
