Takeuchi-US released a new compact excavator, the TB250-2.

Weighing approximately 11,000 pounds, the machine provides Takeuchi with a true 5-ton excavator offering that is well suited for a range of applications including landscape, general contracting and rental, the company reports. The excavator features a long arm with integrated thumb mount and a max dig depth of about 12.5 feet. Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard with the unit. The system allows the owner to view machine vitals, location, utilization, performance and maintenance data remotely and can be instrumental in ensuring machine uptime and availability.

A four-pump hydraulic system provides multi-function capability and precision pilot joysticks deliver smooth, metered control, Takeuchi said. The excavator’s primary auxiliary circuit delivers 24.2 gallons per minute and is controlled using a proportional slide switch located on the left-hand joystick. The multi-function monitor makes it possible to adjust hydraulic flow rates from the cabin, and multiple presets allow attachments to be exchanged quickly and easily, the company adds. Detent mode provides continuous oil flow for various types of hydraulically-driven attachments, helping improve efficiency and reduct fatigue.

The large, automotive-styled interior is equipped with a high-capacity HVAC system to keep operators comfortable and rocker switches provide a wide range of functions. Easy to read in various lighting conditions, a large multifunction monitor keeps the operator informed of machine health and performance. The high-back suspension seat features multiple adjustments for height, weight, for and aft positions, and tilt for comfort and customization.

According to the company, the TB250-2 is easily serviced due to the large hoods, which open overhead to provide access to daily inspection points, pattern change valve, selector valve, control valve, battery and toolbox. All grease points are clearly marked and easy to locate down one side of the machine. The fuel fill is located behind a lockable access panel and features a site gauge to simplify refueling.
