Sakaki-Machi, Japan (DATE TBD): Takeuchi, a world leader in compact equipment, along with German distributor Schafer, will display three new compact excavators at the bauma exhibition in Munich, Germany, October 24-30, 2022. At Takeuchi’s stand, FN1116/2, Open-Air Site, North, the recently introduced TB335R will be joined by the brand-new TB350R and TB395W models. Many other Takeuchi compact excavators and compact track loaders will also be on site, including the world’s first 360-degree compact excavator, the TB1000, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021.
“With the TB1000, Takeuchi created what has become one of the largest segments in the global construction equipment industry – the 360° compact excavator,” said Clay Eubanks, director of global sales for Takeuchi. “Over the past five decades, we’ve developed our new compact excavator models with the same innovative spirit that launched the TB1000. It seems appropriate to pay tribute to the TB1000 at bauma 2022 while introducing our newest excavators, each with technology and features we couldn’t have imagined back in the early ‘70s.”
Following are more details about the newest Takeuchi machines on display at bauma 2022:
TB335R: 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. 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. A spacious cab offers a wide range of advanced features including a 7.0-inch touchscreen, multi-function color display.
TB350R: The TB350R is a larger version of the TB335R with an operating weight of 5,085 kgs. (11,210 lbs.) A very robust model suitable for multiple applications, the excavator is equipped with a 32.4 kW (43.4 hp) engine. The TB350R is highly mobile with a boom swing radius of 71° left and 55° right. It can dig down to 3,575 mm (11.7 ft) and has a gradeability of 30°.
TB395W: The new TB395W wheeled excavator weighs 10,150 kgs. (22,375 lbs.) with an 85 kW/113.9 HP engine. The TB395W’s powerful hydraulic system makes it especially quick with as many as 10.1 rotations per minute. Its 4,095 mm (13.4 ft) digging depth and 8530 mm (28 ft) cutting height make it particularly useful on construction sites. It also offers a maximum bucket breakout force of 58.9 kN (13,240 lbs.), a maximum arm digging force of 39.7 kN (8,925 lbs.) and a traction force of 57.8 kN (12,995 lbs.)
In addition to these new machines, the Takeuchi stand will feature 16 other excavator models and two track loaders in sizes ranging from one to 16 tons. All Takeuchi machines can be found working in multiple industries, including excavation, construction, landscaping, rental and recycling. Numerous attachments designed specifically for use with Takeuchi machines will also be on display. Product and sales experts from Takeuchi and our European sales network will be present to answer attendee questions and help determine the ideal Takeuchi machine for any application.
“I speak for all of Takeuchi when I say we’re very pleased to once again exhibit at bauma 2022,” said Toshiya Takeuchi, president of Takeuchi. “We appreciate the opportunity to introduce a global audience to our newest products at an in-person event. From the long heritage of the TB1000 to our newest excavator models, our bauma display will reflect our journey from ‘world first to world leader.’ We look forward to helping even more customers discover how Takeuchi equipment can help them improve their productivity and profitability.”
