Takeuchi redesigns track loader to provide added power, maneuverability
Takeuchi has launched the completely redesigned TL8R2. The all new track loader is engineered to provide power, while the radial lift design offers a tipping load of 6,041 pounds with an operating weight of 9,182 pounds.
The TL8R2 is equipped with a 74.3 horsepower turbocharged engine that is EPA Final Tier 4 Emission Compliant. The Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) featured on this machine minimize emissions for clean and efficient operation.
Creep Mode is a standard feature on the TL8R2 models equipped with high flow auxiliary hydraulics. This feature will enable operators to precisely match the forward speed of the track loader to a particular attachment without having to constantly meter the travel lever. The creep mode function is ideal for attachments that require a consistent, repeatable travel speed, such as a cold planer and trencher.
The automotive styled operators station features a 5.7-inch multi-informational color display with a rearview camera and a sealed rocker switch bank that helps improve performance and functionality by providing the operator with a wider range of operational information. Also, standard equipment on the TL8R2 are the low-effort pilot controls and proportional auxiliary switches to give the operator the precision needed to work more efficiently in a comfortable, fatigue-free environment.
Additionally, a pressurized cab is an available option on the TL8R2. Optional cabs are equipped with a roll-up door, A/C, heat, defrost and front wiper, and AM/FM/Bluetooth radio providing all day comfort to the operator.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
