Takeuchi extends its short tail swing excavator range
By Catrin Jones01 March 2023
Japan’s Takeuchi has expanded its TB300 Series excavator range with the new TB350R short-tail swing compact excavator, the company’s first five tonne class short tail model.
The TB350R has a rear swing overhang of 7.5 cm (2.95”), weighs 4970 kg (with canopy), and is powered by a diesel engine that is EU Stage V / U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final compliant and delivers 32.4 kW and more than 180.1 Nm of torque.
A four-pump hydraulic system delivers a bucket breakout force of 37.3 kN and a maximum dig depth of 3.57 m.
“Takeuchi continues to design and build excavators that are feature-rich, delivering a unique combination of performance, durability, operator comfort and serviceability,” said Clay Eubanks, director of global sales for Takeuchi.
“The new TB350R offers many improvements that demonstrate our commitment to providing customers with advanced technology that helps them be more comfortable and productive.”
The canopy version has a 4.3” high-definition colour monitor, while the cab model has a 7” touchscreen colour monitor with integrated air conditioner and radio functions.
The TB350R has a wide-opening rear engine service door and a right-side cover that opens overhead for access to key daily inspection points.
“When maintenance and service work are fast and easy to perform on a machine, it’s more likely that they’ll be done correctly and at the right intervals,” said Eubanks.
The company says that the Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB350R in the EU and North America.
TFM aims to reduce downtime and costs by providing owner and operators with machine health and condition, run time (hours) and machine location, as well as remote diagnostics, scheduled maintenance reminders and customisable alert settings.
