Takeuchi has launched the very com­pact TL6R track loader

Takeuchi’s new TL6R com­pact track loader is here, with the com­pany ex­pect­ing it to be pop­u­lar with own­ers of the pop­u­lar TL120 and TL220 mod­els.

One of the stand­out fea­tures of the new TL6R is its size – the loader is small enough for easy truck or trailer load­ing for road trans­port to and from job sites.

The TL6R’s low-pro­file cabin sits at a height of 1975mm, which is low enough to al­low the loader to be driven through the door open­ings in most res­i­den­tial car­ports and garages.

Takeuchi says this fea­ture is great when a land­scaper or plumb­ing con­trac­tor needs ac­cess to the back yard of an ex­ist­ing struc­ture where ma­te­ri­als need to be hauled from a street kerb.

Un­der the bon­net is a Tier 4 Fi­nal 48kW en­gine which is able to main­tain max­i­mum power thanks to the loader’s ac­tive power con­trol, which re­sults in op­ti­mal per­for­mance in all ground con­di­tions and at­tach­ments.

Takeuchi en­gi­neers have fit­ted the TL6R with a re­designed hy­draulic pi­lot con­trol sys­tem that gives the ma­chine’s op­er­a­tor a com­fort­able, pos­i­tive feel for a pre­cise oper­a­tion.

Takeuchi says the TL6R can com­fort­ably han­dle an 835kg op­er­at­ing load thanks to the loader’s power plant. The loader also fea­tures a large 5.7-inch LCD dash panel screen and a built-in re­vers­ing cam­era.

Shar­ing a new un­der­car­riage de­sign with other re­cent-model Takeuchi track load­ers, the triple flange track rollers used in the TL6R have been re­designed to min­imise the de-track­ing risk for those times when an op­er­a­tor may for­get to make wider turns, tra­verses slopes side­ways or en­coun­ters other con­di­tions that may cause this costly and time-con­sum­ing track is­sue.

“Il­lu­mi­na­tion has been en­hanced with large LED work lights that im­prove the level of low-light vis­i­bil­ity, while re­duc­ing power con­sump­tion,” Takeuchi says.
