Takeuchi Adds TB257FR Excavator to Their Lineup

By Announcements

TAKEUCHI JAPAN – Takeuchi Mfg., an innovative global leader in compact equipment has launched the TB257FR compact hydraulic excavator, successor to the TB153FR. The TB257FR features a side-to-side offset boom combined with the tight tail swing enabling it to rotate fully with very little overhang.

The TB257FR features an operating weight of 5,840 kg, a dig depth of 3,895 mm, maximum reach of 6,215 mm, bucket breakout force of 36.6 kN, and provides excellent working range and performance. The side-to-side boom feature enables the TB257FR to dig offset to the right or left side without needing to reposition the machine. In addition, this feature allows more of the counterweight to remain in line with the center of the machine which greatly enhances stability. Another advantage of this system is the boom’s ability to be stowed over center which allows the TB257FR to perform a full rotation nearly within the width of the track. This makes it ideal for working in a variety of confined job sites including road and bridge work, city streets, and in between buildings.

Powering the TB257FR is a turbocharged diesel engine delivering a rated output of 39.0 kW and 195.6 Nm of maximum torque, the TB257FR delivers exceptional power and efficiency. In addition, this powerful engine provides best-in-class traction force of 66.9 kN. A DOC and DPF exhaust aftertreatment system ensures compliance EU Stage V / US Tier 4 emissions standards and provides environmentally friendly operation.

An available cab for the TB257FR provides an automotive styled interior equipped with optional air conditioner, defrost, windshield wiper and washer, skylight with sunshade, AM/FM/MP3 Bluetooth radio, and a high back suspension seat with head rest. The cabin of the TB257FR is designed specifically to minimize fatigue and keep the operator comfortable throughout the workday.

“Takeuchi is excited to offer our customers the TB257FR” says Toshiya Takeuchi, President of Takeuchi. “Takeuchi’s commitment to our tradition of innovation and advancing technology is showcased in this machine. The side-to-side offset boom allows for greater working versatility, and the low center of gravity and optimized counterweight placement creates an extremely stable platform with lifting capabilities similar to that of a conventional machine.”

By Announcements

Takeuchi Japan: Takeuchi an innovation global leader in compact equipment, launches the completely redesigned TL8R-2. The all new redesigned TL8R-2 is engineered to provide superior power, strength, and maneuverability. The radial lift loader design offers a tipping load of 2,740 kg with an operating weight of 4,165 kg.

The TL8R-2 is equipped with a 54.6 kW turbocharged engine that is EU Stage V / EPA Final Tier 4 Emission Compliant. The Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) featured on this machine minimizes emissions for clean and efficient operation.

An optional creep mode function is available on TL8R-2 models. This feature will enable operators to precisely match the forward speed of the track loader to a particular attachment without having to constantly meter the travel lever. The creep mode function is ideal for attachments that require a consistent, repeatable travel speed, such as a cold planner and trencher.

The automotive styled operators station features a 5.7” multi-informational color display with rear view camera and a sealed rocker switch bank that helps improve performance and functionality by providing the operator with a wider range of operational information. Also, standard equipment in the TL8R-2 is the low-effort pilot controls and proportional auxiliary switches to give the operator the precision needed to work more efficiently in a comfortable, fatigue-free environment.

Additionally, a pressurized cab is an available option on TL8R-2. Optional cabs are equipped with a roll-up door, A/C, heat, defrost and front wiper, and AM/FM/MP3 radio providing all day comfort to the operator.

“Takeuchi is excited to release the completely redesigned TL8R-2” said Toshiya Takeuchi, President of Takeuchi. “Takeuchi prides itself on our continuing tradition of innovation and advancing technology, and the TL8R-2 is a perfect example of that.
