Standard Features

 JCB 280 skid steer loaders are designed with safety to the fore. Our unique PowerBoom single loader arm design means operators can enter the machine from the side, avoiding slip hazards, crush hazards and contact with the loader arm and its attachments.  
 It’s also got 60% better visibility than conventional skid steers, partly due to a low profile single rear loader tower and the absence of a conventional large rear torque tube.  
 There’s a front windshield that doubles as an emergency exit and a standard rear view mirror. Then there’s the fuel tank, integrated into the chassis for added protection; and the hoses, safely run through the PowerBoom to reduce the possibility of damage. In short, it’s one of the safest skid steer loaders you can buy.  
 Safety in Numbers  
    The USA’s NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) has rewritten their safety guidance after recognizing the many benefits of JCB’s PowerBoom side entry design  
    270° all-round visibility  
    JCB PowerBoom has up to 20% more steel in one boom than the twin arms of conventional designs  
    Our skid steer’s emergency exit is over twice the size of that found in a conventional design  
Operator Comfort
 Keeping your operators fresh, focused and productive is paramount, which is why we’ve designed our 280 model of skid steer loaders with a 33% larger cab than the nearest competitive machine. Our standard seat has mechanical suspension and there’s also a 12V charger, easily readable control panels and an electronic hand throttle.  
 Servo-assisted controls make handling smooth and intuitive; all in all, we like to think that JCB 280 skid steers are a comfortable favorite with operators.  
 There are no more productive skid steer loaders than the JCB 280. The figures speak for themselves: it has a 16% lower cost of ownership than the top competitor, a better SAE service rating, an annual fuel savings of over 3,975 liters* and a heavy-duty crowd ram that’s nearly 3 times the size of the nearest major competition.  
 There’s a standard mechanical quickhitch and auxiliary couplers on the PowerBoom too. In short, it’s as productive as skid steers get.  
 *Based on 50 weeks per year and 35 hours per week.  
 Fast Entry and Exit Speeds  
    Side entry makes JCB skid steer loaders 17% quicker in applications requiring multiple entries and exits, such as some agricultural tasks  
 We’ve designed our range of skid steer loaders to be serviced easily, ensuring minimum downtime. Firstly, we mount our engines longitudinally for easy access to the drive belt and associated components. There are also 30% fewer grease points than average vertical lift twin arm skid steers.  
 We’ve installed front and rear chassis clean out plates, with a fluid drain point in the rear one, as well as durable O-ring face seals on all hydraulic fittings. There’s excellent service access through the rear service door and gas strut-assisted tilting radiator.  
 It’s no wonder our large platform skid steer loaders are on average 24% more serviceable than competitors’ machines, based on SAE Service Audit Scores.  
 Even More Serviceability  
    Easy-to-service hydraulically-driven variable speed fan  
    Cab can be easily tilted by 1 person for hose access  
    Daily check points are grouped and easily accessible  
    Chassis has an integrated fuel tank and drain point
