Takeuchi re­leases beefy but com­pact TB2150R short ra­dius ex­ca­va­tor

Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

Takeuchi has re­leased the TB2150R heavy­duty short-ra­dius ex­ca­va­tor through lo­cal dis­trib­u­tor Semco Equip­ment Sales.

The TB2150R is aimed at plant hire busi­nesses, de­mo­li­tion con­trac­tors, drainage and land­scap­ing con­trac­tors or con­struc­tion com­pa­nies un­der­tak­ing base­ment ex­ca­va­tions.

Re­duced tail-swing ex­ca­va­tors are be­com­ing much more com­mon on to­day’s con­struc­tion sites due to their abil­ity to get the op­er­a­tor closer to the work area.

Al­though tra­di­tion­ally seen on mini ex­ca­va­tors, Takeuchi says ap­ply­ing the re­duced tail-swing con­fig­u­ra­tion to larger ma­chines like the TB2150R gives them im­proved ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity with­out sac­ri­fic­ing power.

The 17-tonne TB2150R in­cor­po­rates all the fea­tures seen on the con­ven­tional swing TB2150 with swing boom, but with re­duced tail-swing, fixed boom and ex­tended track length.

The ex­ca­va­tor is pow­ered by an 85kW US Tier 4 Fi­nal/EU Stage IV Deutz TCD 3.6 L4 en­gine. The dig­ger can achieve a max­i­mum dig depth of 5.5m and has a max for­ward reach of 8.3m.

Two sets of aux­il­iary ser­vice pip­ing fea­ture mod­u­lated pro­por­tional con­trol, with the main line pro­gram­mable for both flow and re­lief pres­sure to suit dif­fer­ent tools and at­tach­ments. Sep­a­rate pres­sure lev­els can be pre-set.

The large op­er­a­tor’s cab has been given an au­to­mo­tive-style in­te­rior de­signed to be user­friendly. The cab also fea­tures a heated air­sus­pen­sion seat and multi-func­tion dis­play with rear-view cam­era.

Most daily ser­vice points are avail­able at ground level but there is also a safety handrail for ac­cess to the ma­chine’s up­per deck.
