The hoist is pretty slow and underpowered for a crane of this size. We would try to keep this crane in 2 part as much as possible, the job was nowhere near high rise but it 4 part it was just painfully slow.
The crane deflects and bends quite a bit, if you have only operated these types of cranes go drive a Comansa you will immediately see the difference.
I have gone through the crane cabin and controls in my review of the Jaso J300 and the cabin and controls on this crane are 100% exactly the same, so I wont bore you with that again, just paraphrase... the cabin + controls = great!
This crane had the option of driving with remote as well as cabin, its very tricky to drive this crane via remote and I recommend sticking to the cabin on this one.
I'm giving the J260 3 1/2 out of 5.
If you want a 12t Jaso tower crane skip this one and go straight to the J300.
