260 Skid Steer

In today’s tough, hazardous working conditions, the safety of the skid steer operator is paramount. That’s why JCB designed the world’s first skid steer loaders with a side door. That means, unlike ordinary skid steers, you’ll never risk injury by climbing over attachments to enter the cab through the front window. JCB’s New Generation skid steers also offer an unparalleled 270 degrees of visibility. That’s 60 percent more than ordinary skid steers.

We’ve accomplished this thanks to JCB’s unique PowerBoom design, a concept that promotes operator safety, productivity and machine reliability under the most extreme job site conditions. JCB’s New Generation skid steers also take into account operator comfort. We made our machines 33 percent larger and quieter than other skid steers.

Standard Features

 270 degrees of visibility, compared to 165 degrees with other skid steers, giving JCB a 60 percent advantage.  
 Eliminating the loader arm torque tube provides for superb rear visibility.  
 Standard rear- view mirror centrally placed at the operator’s eye level further enhances operator visibility.  
 Mesh-free enclosed cab design provides unobstructed visibility, similar to telescopic handler visibility.  
 A clear view to the bucket cutting edge provides for increased productivity on the job site.  
 A common-sense door eliminates the need to climb in through the front window over dangerous attachments.  
 The JCB door is twice the size of our competitor’s entry to the machine through the front window.  
 The door size has been increased and is now 40 percent larger, allowing easy access to the machine.  
 We employ the same intelligent design found on our telescopic handlers, boom design and side- entry cab.  
 Sliding left side window for increased ventilation.  
 Large rear opening service door provides exceptional access to all daily maintenance points.  
 Access is further enhanced with top-opening hood for radiator clean out and visibility of the top side of the engine.  
 New tilting cab design enables easy access during more detailed machine maintenance.  
 New O-Ring Face Seal hydraulic fittings and 38 percent fewer parts mean less downtime.  
 Hydraulically driven variable speed fan helps to minimize internal and external noise.  
Power Boom
 Common-sense boom design maximizes machine performance, like on other construction machines.  
 JCB’s PowerBoom has up to 20 percent more steel in one boom than the two arms of competitive skid steers.  
 It allows greater visibility on the job site, with no need for torque tubes or an arm on the left side of the machine.  
 Proven intelligent design from the maker of the world’s best-selling telescopic handlers.  
 Vertical lift design allows for more reach at maximum lift height, making it easier to load high-sided trucks.  
Cab Environment
 The modular cab with integrated floor is 33 percent larger than ordinary skid steer cabs.  
 Includes a comfortable, standard mechanical suspension seat, with an option for air suspension with heat.  
 Fully pressurized and isolation mounted enclosed cab design provides a more comfortable work environment.  
 Industry low 76 dB(A) internal cab noise that is more than half the sound level of ordinary skid steers.  
 All controls and machine functions are ergonomically placed within easy reach of the operator.  
 Optional 7-way multifunction joysticks allow easy operation of hydraulically driven attachments.  
 Standard mechanical universal quick hitch with an available Hydraulic quick hitch option  
 Choose from 30 attachment ranges providing up to 200 distinct attachments.
