Takeuchi manufacturing began in 1963 and has been a pioneer in the compact equipment industry.
Takeuchi developed the world's first compact excavator in 1970 and our innovation continued again in the mid-80's with the introduction of the first compact track loader. These two products have transformed the North American construction equipment markets and have positioned Takeuchi as a leading provider of compact equipment.
Takeuchi continues to provide products that meet the needs of today's contractor and our dedication to the compact market is evident by our extensive dealer and service network throughout North America which is supported by our state-of-the-art training, parts and distribution facility near Atlanta, Georgia.

Skid-steer loaders are nimble, versatile machines capable of performing a variety of jobsite tasks.

The reputation of the compact excavator has been significantly bolstered in recent years due to their growing versatility and the range of options available for these machines. As hydraulic capabilities improve, the scope of these machines' capabilities has moved beyond earthmoving in cramped quarters and on small jobs. The compact excavator has become a multifunctional machine that can meet a variety of needs, from flail mowing to precision excavating.
