Takeuchi adds 3.5-ton compact hydraulic excavator
Sharing the same design concept of the TB230, TB240, and TB260, the all-new TB235-2 compact hydraulic excavator provides Takeuchi with a 3.5 ton offering in this competitive market classification. With 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, the TB235 provides excellent working range and performance. Additionally, the TB235-2 shares the 24.4 horsepower Yanmar engine with the TB230 and requires no additional exhaust after-treatment systems.
The operator's station is spacious and 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 heat that will provide year round operator comfort in varying climates and conditions.
Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is standard equipment on the TB235-2 and provides free access for the first two years of ownership. TFM provides a wide variety of data that includes machine location, health, condition, and run time. The TFM system will 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."
