The John Deere E260 Excavator delivers the exceptional performance and precise control you need — at a price you can appreciate. Intelligent Hydraulic (JD-IHC) system is fully integrated with the Deere PowerTech™ engine to provide fast, smooth response. Expanded bucket options help improve cycle times, while additional auxiliary hydraulic lines allow you to run a wide variety of attachments.

Productivity like never before! 

John Deere is a proven and trusted brand name in the machinery industry with field-proven John Deere PowerTech ™ diesel that provides exceptional power without compromising fuel economy. Integration with Deere’s JD-IHC system delivers superb hydraulic tuning, for faster truck loading and fine-finish jobs such as grading and trenching.

Fast Cycle Times 

Generous flow, arm force, and swing torque help speed cycles. So, you can do your best to stay on schedule or ahead of the weather.

Power and Work Modes 

Four power modes (Low, Economy, Standard, and High) easily adapt to changing job demands, so you can find the right balance of productivity and fuel economy to fit the way you work. Three work modes — Lift, Dig, and Hammer/Bidirectional Auxiliary — let an operator choose the proper hydraulic response for specific applications and attachments.

Operator Comfort 

John Deere has designed and manufactured the cab with lots of operator-friendly features. A seven-inch touch-screen monitor provides quick access to machine features and functions. Here are some awesome features that stand out when talking to the operators:


New automotive-quality styling is as appealing as it is ergonomic, putting efficient productivity within easy reach. Foot pedals, travel levers, and joysticks have been optimally repositioned for simple, intuitive operation.

Sealed-switch module 

Sealed touch pad keeps out dust, moisture, and debris, and allows for quick access to machine features and functions. Eliminating traditional rocker switches means no unsealed connections and moving parts, for more durability.

Long Carriage Benefits 

An excavator which has an extended undercarriage offers the following benefits: 

  1. More stability on uneven terrains 
  1. Higher breakout forces 
  1. The ability to move more ground on any site and in any conditions
