Takeuchi Launches Two New Track Loaders

By February 9, 2017 Announcements

Takeuchi an innovative global leader in compact equipment has introduced two new track loaders to the market with the TL10V-2 and TL12R-2.

TL10V-2 Track Loader

The TL10V-2 is the second vertical lift track loader in the Takeuchi lineup, joining the larger TL12V-2. The vertical lift arrangement delivers a 5 percent greater operating capacity over the TL10 radial. It also provides increased lift height and greater balance.

At 4,605 kilograms, the TL10V-2 features a tipping load of 3,270 kilograms, bucket breakout force of 29 kN, and lift arm breakout force of 24 kN. Additionally, it has a maximum hinge pin height of 3,170 mm, dump height fully raised of 2,435 mm and dump reach fully raised of 950 mm. 

The TL10V-2 is powered by a Kubota 3.3 liter diesel engine that produces a rated output (ISO 14396) of 54.6 kW, 261.1 Nm of torque, and features a DOC+DPF diesel exhaust after-treatment system. Active Power Control (APC) is standard equipment and it allows the machine to automatically maintain engine power and keeps the engine within its optimal performance range.  This feature is unique and can be turned on, or off depending on the operator’s experience with Takeuchi controls.

A fully redesigned operator’s station provides greater comfort and functionality. A new 5.7-inch color multi-informational display keeps the operator informed, while the precision pilot controls deliver unmatched responsiveness, performance, and comfort.

The quiet track design reduces noise and vibration and the tread design provides maximum flotation. Central filter locations, easy access battery compartment, and high capacity swing out cooling module improve serviceability.

TL12R-2 Track Loader

The TL12R-2 radial replaces the TL12 and features an operating weight of 5,670 kilograms.  It delivers over 6.5% more operating capacity, and has a tipping load of 3,915 kilograms.

The machine features a bucket breakout force of 36.5 kN, has a maximum hinge pin height of 3,200 mm, a dump height of 2,400 mm and dump reach fully raised of 960 mm. 

The TL12R-2 is powered by a Kubota 3.8 liter diesel engine that produces a rated output (ISO14396) of 81.8 kW and 379.3 Nm of torque. It also has a DOC+DPF+SCR diesel exhaust after-treatment system that requires the use of diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF.

Similar to the TL12V-2, the TL12R-2’s operator station has been redesigned and wider than the TL12 for greater comfort and accessibility. The 5.7-inch color multi-informational display is also featured on the TL12R-2. Similar to the TL10V-2, the overhead door is quieter, easier to use, and can be opened, or closed during machine operation.

A quiet track design reduces noise while operating, and a wide block tread design provides maximum flotation, while serviceability has been improved with a centralized filter location, an added battery access compartment and a swing out cooling module.
