Takeuchi-US has launched the TB2150 hydraulic excavator. Completely redesigned from the ground up, the TB2150 replaces the Takeuchi TB1140 SERIES 2 excavator. The new model is the largest, most capable excavator in the Takeuchi lineup.
At 34,480 pounds, the machine delivers greater functionality, performance, comfort and serviceability than the previous TB1140 SERIES 2 model.
The TB2150 offers a maximum digging depth of 18 feet, maximum dump height of 20 feet 4.9 inches, maximum reach of 28 feet 8.9 inches and maximum bucket breakout force of 22,190 pounds.
Powered by a Deutz TCD 3.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine that is U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission-compliant, the TB2150 produces 114 hp, a 10 percent increase over the previous version. It also delivers 339 foot-pounds of torque, a 19 percent increase. The engine utilizes a DOC+SCR diesel exhaust aftertreatment system that requires the use of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
The operator’s station has been completely revamped with an automotive-style interior that is operator friendly. A spacious cabin features a heated deluxe high-back air-suspension seat, and the new colour multi-information display keeps the operator informed of machine performance. In addition, the excavator includes boom and arm holding valves, an overload alarm, and a new rear-view camera to view objects behind the machine on the colour monitor.
Serviceability and uptime have been improved by simplifying access to key maintenance. This includes a nearly 5 percent increase in fuel tank capacity and the engine does not have a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to maintain. In addition, the machine comes standard with Takeuchi’s new telematics system, Takeuchi Fleet Management.
“The new TB2150 represents Takeuchi’s commitment to continuous product improvement so we can provide the latest in technology and performance to our customers,” said David Caldwell, national product manager at Takeuchi-US. “The TB2150 is more capable, comfortable and spacious than its predecessor, and our customers will find it to be an exceptional value and upgrade.”
