By August 30, 2022 Announcements

Sakaki-Machi, Japan (Sept. 1, 2022): Takeuchi has added the new generation TB335R short tail swing compact excavator to its TB300 Series. This excavator features a sophisticated interior and exterior design as well as enhanced safety, security and power functions.

“The TB335R is a compact, short tail swing excavator with minimal overhang behind the operator’s seat, making it ideal for working in tight or confined spaces,” said Clay Eubanks, director of global sales for Takeuchi. “It also provides outstanding stability rarely found in a short tail swing machine, along with smooth, intuitive controls that help operators tackle tough jobs with ease.”

The TB335R has an operating weight of 3,760 kgs. (8,290 lbs.), a maximum bucket breakout force of 27.1 kN (6,090 lbs.) and a maximum arm digging force of 20.6 kN (4,630 lbs.) The excavator is powered by an EU Stage V / EPA Tier 4 emission-compliant engine delivering 18.2 kW (24.4 hp) and a maximum torque of 95.8 Nm (70.6 ft-lbs). The TB335R offers two working modes – Standard and ECO – allowing operators to match the mode to the task at hand, choosing fuel savings or more power as desired.

The TB335R’s spacious cab offers a wide range of advanced features including a 7.0-inch touchscreen, multi-function color display. Canopy models offer a 4.3-inch multi-informational display. Cab models also feature heat, defrost, windshield wiper and washer, skylight w/ sunshade and DAB digital radio with Bluetooth technology (air conditioning and rain guard are optional.) On both cab and canopy models, a deluxe high-back suspension seat with head rests and a two-inch retractable seat belt help keep operators comfortable and productive.

The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is optional on the TB335R. With TFM, owners and operators can remotely connect to their Takeuchi track loaders and excavators. TFM delivers alerts and machine information such as location, utilization, performance and maintenance status, as well as insights into how and where equipment is being operated.

According to Toshiya Takeuchi, president, “Takeuchi provides construction machinery that is deeply related to housing and infrastructure and continues to support our daily lives as an indispensable product for urban development and its maintenance. Our products have earned the trust of our customers, not only for their digging ability, but also for their outstanding durability and stability, smooth and intuitive operation and superior comfort that reduces fatigue even after long hours of operation.”
