Backhoe 260

Mounting the backhoe is now a lot easier with tiltable valve bank and new locking mechanism on the boom.


Backhoe 260 is a brand new backhoe model from Avant and it replaces the old backhoe of 220/250 series. The new model has a number of features that are improved against the old model. The changes are explained in more detail below.

Boom slewing is now executed with two separate cylinders as opposed to a single cylinder and chain drive in the old model. The new system has less free play when slewing the boom and has less need for servicing. The slewing angle is 170 degrees. Support legs are hydraulically adjustable. The driver can easily adjust the support legs directly from the control valve of the backhoe. This way the best possible support can be easily set up and found every time.

Bucket quick release (manual model) as standard. For fast and easy bucket changes. Ease of operation and especially mounting is further developed. Movement speeds are optimised for Avant 600 and 700 series machines making digging easier. Mounting the backhoe is now a lot easier with tiltable valve bank and new locking mechanism on the boom.
