Takeuchi Japan: Takeuchi, a global innovation leader is pleased to announce the release of its newest compact excavator, the TB250-2.  The TB250-2 provides Takeuchi with a true 5t excavator offering that is well suited for a wide range of applications including landscape, general contracting, and rental.  It weighs just over 4,970 kg (canopy) and features an independent mono boom, and a max dig depth of 3,780 mm (1,760 mm arm).  The TB250-2 features the Takeuchi Fleet Management telematics system or TFM.  This system allows the owner to view machine vitals, location, utilization, performance, and maintenance data remotely and can be instrumental in ensuring machine uptime and availability.

A three pump hydraulic system provides exceptional multi-function capability and precision pilot joysticks deliver smooth, metered control.  The primary auxiliary circuit delivers 91.7 L/min and it is controlled using a proportional slide switch located on the left hand joystick.  The multi-function monitor makes it possible to adjust hydraulic flow rates from the cabin, and there are multiple presets so attachments can be exchanged quickly and easily.  Additionally, detent mode provides continuous oil flow for various types of hydraulically driven attachments helping to improve efficiency and reduce fatigue.

Not only will the operator be more productive with this machine, they will also be more comfortable in the spacious cabin. The automotive-styled interior is equipped with a high capacity HVAC system to keep them comfortable throughout the year, and rocker switches provide a wide range of functions.  A large multifunction monitor keeps the operator informed of machine health and performance and it is easy to read in varying light conditions. The deluxe high back suspension seat features multiple adjustments for height, weight, fore and aft positions, and tilt for greater comfort and customization.

Serviceability of the TB250-2 is easy to perform due to the large hoods that open overhead providing access to key daily inspection points, optional pattern change valve, selector valve, control valve, battery, and toolbox.  All grease points are clearly marked and easy to locate down one side of the machine.  The fuel fill is located behind a lockable access panel and features a site gauge to simplify refueling.

“Takeuchi is excited about the addition of the TB250-2 to the excavator line, and we look forward to providing today’s contractors with a machine that will meet and exceed their expectations on the most demanding jobsites,” says Mike Ross, Director of Product. “Listening to our customers is key to our success and we incorporate that feedback into each and every Takeuchi product to ensure the build quality, performance, and value is unmatched.”
