Takeuchi-US, Pendergrass, Georgia, has announced the launch of the TB225 compact hydraulic excavator. Featuring all steel construction, the TB225 is designed to provide operators with engine output that provides more power to increase productivity.
With an operating weight of 4,993 pounds, a dig depth of 8 feet 5.5 inches, maximum reach of 14 feet 4.2 inches and a bucket breakout force of 4,339 pounds, the company says this machine can add efficiency to any job site. The retractable undercarriage on the TB225 also allows the machine to easily navigate job sites with limited access.
According to Takeuchi, the automatic fuel priming system, auto deceleration and dual element air cleaner, which are standard features for the 19.6 hp US EPA Final Tier 4 Yanmar engine, ensures that the machine will always operate in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.
Standard equipment includes a LCD multi-informational display, automatic load sensing two speed travel, pilot operated joystick controls and a back fill blade with pin-on extensions. The large engine hoods provide ease of access for routine maintenance points.
The operator’s station of the TB225 features a ROPS/TOPS/OPG protective structure, along with a suspension seat and adjustable arm rests designed to keep the operator safe and comfortable on any job site.
“Takeuchi is excited to add the TB225 to our lineup” says Keith Kramlich, national product and training manager of Takeuchi-US. “Takeuchi is dedicated to innovation and advancing technology, and we believe the TB225 is a perfect example of that. This machine allows operators to navigate job sites with limited access providing our clients with a more versatile machine, expanding their capabilities as well as their profits.”
