 Takeuchi-US updated its excavator model lineup. The Takeuchi TB230 and TB240 compact excavators share the same design philosophy as the recently introduced TB260, which is delivering increased performance, greater working range, improved operator comfort and improved serviceability.

These new models feature EPA Final Tier 4 compliant engines, greater hydraulic performance, advanced multifunction electronic displays as well as operator stations with pilot controls, improved visibility and deluxe suspension seats.

TB230
With an operating weight of 6,607 pounds and a bucket breakout force of 6,471 pounds, the TB230 is characterized by its redesigned exterior, which offers better visibility and improved service access. The appointed operator’s station includes a multifunction monitor, function switches, electronic throttle control and precision pilot controls with a proportional slide switch to control auxiliary hydraulic functions.

The TB230 features a 24.4 hp Final Tier 4 computer-controlled Yanmar engine.

TB240
With an operating weight of 8,289 pounds, the new TB240 compact excavator delivers 9,959 pounds of bucket digging force—nearly 15 percent more than the previous TB235. The Tier 4 computer-controlled Yanmar engine provides more than 35 gross hp, an increase of more than 20 percent, and features new “Eco” and “Power” working modes.

The machine has been upgraded to include adjustable auxiliary flow settings so multiple attachments can be set-up. The TB240 features a reinforced boom with large gusset reinforcements for improved strength and durability. The body has been redesigned to allow for ground-level panoramic serviceability, eliminating the need for a tilting operator station.
