Construction equipment: Takeuchi-US, an innovative global leader in compact equipment, has introduced the all-new TL12V2 track loader, the first vertical lift model in their lineup and the largest vertical lift track loader in the industry. The TL12V2 has many new and exciting features that enhance performance, durability, and serviceability. These features provide better stability, visibility, reduced vibration, increased lift height, and complete comfort for the operator.
Built with increased performance features, the TL12V2 vertical lift loader arrangement delivers 45 percent greater operating capacity over the current TL12 radial, and delivers exceptional load and carry performance. Additionally, the vertical lift arm design provides outstanding reach, increased lift height and remarkable stability.
The new track loader is powered by a Kubota 3.8L diesel engine that is US EPA Tier 4 Final emission compliant, and produces 111.3 horsepower (hp) and 284 ft-lbs of torque.
Takeuchi features a lower cross member on the TL12V2 for greater visibility, efficiency and performance on the job. The design of the rear cross member also provides optimum visibility to the rear of the machine. Additionally, the operator’s station has been completely revamped with a wider cabin for exceptional comfort and accessibility. A new 5.7-inch color multi-informational display keeps the operator informed, while the precision pilot controls and a new Active Power Control system provide impressive control of the machine.
The TL12V2 now features a quiet track design for reduced noise and vibration while operating with a new tread pattern. The tread pattern produces greater flotation minimizing ground disturbance, and a new contact pad between the roller and track enhances ride quality and reduces vibration. Furthermore, the undercarriage on the TL12V2 has been lengthened for greater stability and improved ride quality.
“The TL12V2 is the largest, most capable track loader in the industry and a welcome addition to the Takeuchi product line,” said David Caldwell, Product Manager at Takeuchi-US. “The TL12V2 delivers unmatched performance, an outstanding feature set, excellent service access, and it is a great value. At Takeuchi our goal is to provide our customers with the best compact construction equipment available today.”
The TL12V2 includes a standard two-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
