Takeuchi has launched the TB2150R excavator. The new 15t model is one of the company’s largest excavators, second only to the TB2150. The primary difference between the two units is the TB2150R’s fixed boom arrangement and reduced tail swing design.
The TB2150R has an operating weight of 34,215 lb. (rubber track), a maximum bucket breakout force of 22,256 lb., and a maximum arm digging force of 13,490 lb. It is powered by a 114 hp DEUTZ TCD3.6L4 turbocharged engine that delivers 338 ft-lb of torque and features a Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) diesel exhaust aftertreatment system.
The excavator offers three working modes – ECO, Standard, and High Altitude – allowing operators to match the working mode to their specific application. Additionally, the hydraulic system includes three standard auxiliary circuits with the primary or high-flow circuit capable of delivering up to 59.2 gpm. The second auxiliary circuit can deliver up to 14.5 gpm. A factory-installed third auxiliary circuit is also included and serves as a dedicated coupler circuit.
The cab offers a wide range of advanced features, including a deluxe air-suspension seat with heat and a seven-inch, multi-function colour display that keeps the operator informed of machine performance. The display can also be used to set flow and pressure rates for a wide range of hydraulic attachments. Automatic climate control, heat and defrost are standard, along with an AM/FM/Bluetooth radio and 24v and 12v power outlets.
The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB2150R.
