Takeuchi-US has updated its excavator model lineup to include Takeuchi TB230 and TB240 compact excavators.
Both compact excavators feature the same design of the recently introduced TB260.
The models are hydraulic and feature EPA Final Tier 4 compliant engines.
The TB230 features an operating weight of 6,607 pounds, and a bucket breakout force of 6,471 pounds.
Additionally, TB230 features a redesigned exterior, which provides better visibility and improved service access.
The operator’s station on the TB230 includes a multi-function monitor, function switches, electronic throttle control and precision pilot controls with a proportional slide switch to control auxiliary hydraulic functions.
The TB230 includes a 24.4 horsepower Final Tier 4 computer-controlled Yanmar engine.
After making its first debut at this year’s ConExpo, the TB240 features an operating weight of 8,298 pounds and delivers 9,959 pounds of bucket digging force, which is approximately 15 percent more than the previous TB235.
The TB240 also includes a Tier 4 computer-controlled Yanmar engine and provides more than 35 gross horsepower, which is an increase of more than 20 percent.
The machine also features new working modes called Eco and Power to help performance.
Additionally, the TB240 has been upgraded to include adjustable auxiliary flow settings so multiple attachments can be used. The TB240 also has a reinforced boom with large gusset reinforcements. The body has been redesigned to allow for ground-level panoramic serviceability, eliminating the need for a tilting operator station.
