Construction equipment: Compact excavator enhances performance, durability, serviceability

Construction equipment: Takeuchi-US, a provider of compact equipment, has recently updated its compact excavator lineup with the introduction of the all-new TB210R. The Takeuchi TB210R has many new and exciting features that enhance performance, durability, and serviceability. One of the key features is the minimal tail swing design. Couple that with a retractable undercarriage, a backfill blade that can go from 40.2" wide down to 29.5" wide, and a new foldable ROPS/TOPS canopy that can reduce the machine¹s overall height, and you have a machine that can gain access to and work in some of the most confined applications.

Upgrades to the TB210R include pilot-operated joystick controls with an ISO/SAE control pattern change valve, selector valve, and pilot accumulator. Pilot controls deliver excellent fine control and responsiveness for greater productivity and reduced operator fatigue, while the addition of the ISO/SAE pattern change valve allows the operator to choose a preferred operational pattern. To enhance attachment versatility, the TB210R features a selector valve for one-way and two-way auxiliary hydraulic flow, and the new pilot accumulator enables the operator to easily remove residual pressure from the auxiliary lines.

A new Kubota D722-E4B three-cylinder engine powers the TB210R and delivers nearly 22 percent more horsepower than its predecessor, the TB108. The engine oil filter and dipstick are easily accessed through a lockable access panel located below the operator¹s seat. A lockable swing-out panel on the left side of the machine provides access to the fuel fill and sight gauge, fuel filter with shut-off, and the dual-element air cleaner. In addition, the rear engine hood opens overhead, providing outstanding access to the hydraulic tank and sight gauge, battery, coolant reserve tank, pattern change valve, and one-way flow selector valve. The TB210R features a two-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
