Takeuchi's new TCR50-2 crawler dumper is designed to move heavy materials across challenging terrain. Previously available in other parts of the world, Takeuchi is introducing the TCR50-2 to North America.

"The market for crawler dumpers is growing as demand for them in construction, mining, and infrastructure applications increases," said Lee Padgett, product manager for Takeuchi-US. "Urbanization here in North America has led to a greater need for these agile machines that can carry heavy loads over unstable or rough terrain, often in confined spaces. The TCR50-2 can do all that and more."

Material movement with a minimal footprint

Weighing 14,440 pounds with a 118-hp engine, the TCR50-2 crawler dumper is a versatile crawler dumper. With a 65-degree dumping angle and 8,157-pound maximum loading weight, the TCR50-2 allows operators to carry up to 2.7 cubic yards of material while rotating and dumping it in a single cycle. The TCR50-2's ability to rotate its dump bed 180 degrees reduces both the need to reposition the machine and the deterioration of its rubber tracks.

Comfortable work station keeps operators productive and informed

The TCR50-2's operator's station is designed to keep operators informed. It features a 5.7-inch multi-information colour display with a 180-degree rear-view camera, hydraulic joystick controls, an adjustable suspension seat, an air conditioner, a radio with USB functionality, and a cup holder. Hydraulic pilot controls deliver smooth operation for travel and dump body functions while the foot throttle efficiently adjusts engine speed. Wide-opening maintenance covers offer access to the TCR50-2's engine and routine inspection points.

In addition to its 180-degree rearview camera, the crawler dumper has LED work lights and a tinted sun visor. The cab window has a rear windshield wiper and window vents. A customizable travel alarm can be adjusted to sound for forward and reverse travel or only when the unit is put into reverse. Grip steps and handlebars provide steady access to service areas at the top of the machine. 

Takeuchi's Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is standard on the TCR50-2. TFM provides owners and operators with machine health and condition, run time (hours), machine location, remote diagnostics, scheduled maintenance reminders, and customizable alert settings. TFM also allows owners to geofence their machines.
