By Andy Brown02 September 2022
Takeuchi has added the new generation TB335R short tail swing compact excavator to its TB300 Series. The model will initially be available in Europe and North America.
The TB335R has an operating weight of 3,760 kgs. (8,290 lbs.), a maximum bucket breakout force of 27.1 kN (6,090 lbs.) and a maximum arm digging force of 20.6 kN (4,630 lbs.)
The excavator is powered by an EU Stage V/EPA Tier 4 emission-compliant engine delivering 18.2 kW (24.4 hp) and a maximum torque of 95.8 Nm (70.6 ft-lbs).
There are two two working modes – Standard and ECO – allowing operators to match the mode to the task at hand, choosing fuel savings or more power as desired.
“The TB335R is a compact, short tail swing excavator with minimal overhang behind the operator’s seat, making it ideal for working in tight or confined spaces,” said Clay Eubanks, director of global sales for Takeuchi. “It also provides outstanding stability rarely found in a short tail swing machine.”
The TB335R’s cab is said to offer a wide range of advanced features including a 7.0-inch touchscreen, multi-function color display. Canopy models offer a 4.3-inch multi-informational display. Cab models also feature heat, defrost, windshield wiper and washer, skylight w/ sunshade and DAB digital radio with Bluetooth technology.
The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system is optional on the TB335R.
