Controls

Controls on the R260 incorporates intuitive design, state-of-the-art technology and plenty of options to suit the preference of any operator.

  • Four control options include T-Bar, Joystick, Dual-Hand, and Hand/Foot.
  • Auxiliary controls are located on the control grip in all control configurations for easy access.
  • Customizable integrated digital display provides coolant, fuel, battery, environmental and engine regeneration, and more information in real time.
  • Adjustable joystick control pods provide ease of operator control with minimal effort, reducing fatigue.
  • New upper-left and upper-right instrument panels provide easy readout and switch access.
  • Hydraloc™ system applies brakes whenever the operator raises the restraint bar, leaves the operator’s seat or switches off the ignition.

Engine

The R260 is equipped with a top-of-the-line Yanmar Tier IV engine that meets emissions standards and provides the muscle needed to tackle demanding jobs with ease.

  • The DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) system provides clean emissions without the need for additional fuel after-treatment additives.
  • The DPF requires regeneration to maintain optimal running conditions. This occurs passively as the machine is operated, but also requires occasional manual regeneration by the operator.
  • Regeneration is intuitively managed through the digital display and a clearly labeled rocker switch.
