Takeuchi-US launches new compact excavator

Takeuchi-US has launched a new compact hydraulic excavator.

The TB235-2 shares the same design concept as the TB230, TB240, and TB260. The company said that, with the launch of the TB235-2, Takeuchi will be able to meet the needs of a wide range of customers including general contractors, landscapers, utility contractors, and the rental industry.

The new model has an operating weight of 7,474 pounds, a dig depth of 10 feet 7.7 inches, maximum reach of 17 feet 3 inches and breakout force of 9,127 pounds. It shares the 24.4hp Yanmar 3TNV88F engine with the TB230 and requires no additional exhaust after-treatment systems.

The operator’s station features an automotive styled interior with a multi-information display to keep the operator informed of machine health and condition.   A cab option is available with air conditioning and heating.

The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is standard equipment on the TB235-2, with free access provided for the first two years of ownership. TFM provides a wide variety of data, including the machine location, health, condition, and run time. The TFM system is designed to help reduce downtime, control costs, perform remote diagnostics and schedule maintenance.

“The TB235-2 represents Takeuchi’s continued commitment to product improvement, which allows us to provide the latest in technology and performance to our customers,” said David Caldwell, national product manager at Takeuchi-US. “This excavator can be easily transported, has excellent stability and customers will find it to be an exceptional value.”
