Takeuchi-US has introduced two new Tier 4 Final track loaders, TL10V2 and TL12R2. Both come standard with the manufacturer’s new telematics system, Takeuchi Fleet Management.
The TL10V2 is the second vertical lift track loader in the Takeuchi lineup, joining the larger TL12V2. The vertical lift arrangement delivers a 5 percent greater operating capacity over the TL10 radial, the company says, while also providing increased lift height and greater balance.
At 10,130 pounds, the TL10V2 features a tipping load of 7,205 pounds, bucket breakout force of 6,520 pounds, and lift arm breakout force of 5,400 pounds. In addition, it has a maximum hinge pin height of 10 feet, 4.8 inches, a dump height fully raised of 7 feet,11.9 inches, and dump reach of 3 feet, 1.4 inches.
The TL10V2 is powered by a Kubota 3.3-liter diesel engine that produces 74.3 horsepower, 195 ft-lbs of torque, and features a DOC+DPF diesel exhaust after-treatment system. Takeuchi says Active Power Control (APC) is standard equipment, enabling the machine to automatically maintain engine power and keeping the engine within its optimal performance range. This feature can be turned on or off depending on the operator’s experience with Takeuchi controls.
The new track loader has a fully redesigned operator’s station that provides greater comfort and functionality, according to the manufacturer.
Takeuchi says the machine’s quiet track design reduces noise and vibration and the tread design provides maximum flotation.
Servicing is made easier, the company says, by the central filter locations, easy access battery compartment and swing-out cooling module.
Meanwhile, the new TL12R2 radial replaces Takeuchi’s TL12 and features an operating weight of 12,530 pounds. It delivers over 6.5 percent more operating capacity and has a tipping load of 8,629 pounds.
The machine has a bucket breakout force of 8,210 pounds, a maximum hinge pin height of 10 feet, 6 inches, a dump height of 7 feet, 10.5 inches and dump reach of 3 feet, 1.8 inches.
The TL12R2 is powered by a Kubota 3.8-liter diesel engine that produces 111.3 horsepower and 284 ft-lbs of torque. It also has a DOC+DPF+SCR diesel exhaust after-treatment system that requires the use of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).
Similar to the TL12V2, the TL12R2’s operator station has been redesigned and is 3 inches wider than the TL12 for greater comfort and accessibility. A 5.7-inch color display is also featured on the TL12R2. Similar to the TL10V2, Takeuchi says, the overhead door is quieter, easier to use and can be opened or closed during machine operation.
A quiet track design reduces noise while operating, and a wide block tread design provides maximum flotation.
Serviceability is improved, the company says, with central filter locations, an added battery access compartment and swing-out cooling module.
Takeuchi-US says both the TL10V2 and TL12R2 are available now.
