Takeuchi Releases New Excavator, Largest in Lineup

By February 23, 2017 Announcements

Takeuchi mfg, a global leader in compact construction equipment has introduced their new TB2150 hydraulic excavator to the market.  Completely redesigned from the ground up, the TB2150 replaces the Takeuchi TB1140 SERIES 2 excavator.

The TB2150 is the largest, most capable excavator in the Takeuchi lineup. At 15,095 kilograms, the machine delivers greater functionality, performance, comfort, and serviceability over the previous TB1140 SERIES 2 model.

The TB2150 offers a maximum digging depth of 5,195 mm, maximum dump height of 6,070 mm, maximum reach of 8,520 mm and maximum bucket breakout force of 98.7 kN.

Powered by a Deutz TCD 3.6 liter turbocharged diesel engine that is EU Stage IV / EPA Tier 4 emission compliant, the TB2150 produces 85 kW, a 10 percent increase over the previous version, and delivers  460 Nm of torque, a 19 percent increase. The engine utilizes a DOC+SCR diesel exhaust after-treatment system that requires the use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF).

The operator’s station has been completely updated with an automotive styled interior that is operator friendly. A spacious cabin has an optional heated deluxe high-back air suspension seat, and the new color multi-informational display keeps the operator informed of machine performance. In addition, the excavator includes boom and arm holding valves, an overload alarm, and a new rear view camera to view objects behind the machine on the color monitor.

Serviceability and uptime have been greatly improved by simplifying access to key maintenance items. This includes a 19 percent increase in fuel tank capacity and the engine does not have a DPF to maintain.
