Backhoe 260 is a completely new backhoe model from Avant. It replaces earlier backhoe models 220 and 250. The new model has many improved features: Boom swing happens with two hydraulic cylinders, instead of the single cylinder and chain drive in the old models. The new system gives more exact boom movements when swinging and requires less service. Swing angle is 170 degrees. Backhoe 260 is equipped with hydraulic outriggers as standard. The operator can easily adjust the outriggers with the lever on the backhoe control valve. This allows quick and easy set up also on uneven terrains.
Changing of bucket is easy thanks to the quick attach mechanism. Mounting the backhoe on Avant is very fast, and the new foldable control valve bank and locking system on the boom make it even easier.
