Powerful and nimble, the TL12 is one of the newest track loader in the Takeuchi line-up.  With its increased operating capacity and greater engine power, the TL12 means business and will help you complete the toughest jobs.  You will also appreciate the new “Eco Mode” feature that will enable you to reduce fuel consumption and let you keep more of your hard earned money.

Takeuchi has developed a new selectable attachment control system for the TL12 that provides three adjustable attachment settings where you can program attachment specific hydraulic flow rates from the comfort of the operator’s seat.  This exciting new feature further enhances the capability of the TL12 and enables you to optimize the machine to the job at hand.  When combined with the standard 14 pin connector, multi-function control handle, fingertip proportional controls, and available high flow system with a second auxiliary hydraulic circuit you no longer have a compact track loader, you now have an extremely capable tracked tool carrier.

Designed for optimal operator comfort, the cab features a spacious interior with a fully adjustable high back suspension seat, a roll-up door for those nice days, and improved HVAC performance for those not-so-nice days.  To further sweeten the pot, the cab on TL12 is now pressurized, ride performance is improved, and the controls have been enhanced.  

Unmatched and extremely responsive, the precision pilot controls found on Takeuchi track loaders become an extension of the operator.  To improve versatility a pattern change selector valve is available and it allows the operator to quickly and easily change from standard ISO, Takeuchi controls to an “H” control pattern.

Finally, for superior strength and durability the TL12 features a fully welded, purpose built frame.  Integrated cross members and an industry exclusive undercarriage that maintains steel-to-steel contact between the large, heavy duty rollers and forged steel imbeds that are incorporated into the rubber track result in a long life track system that will withstand many hours on the job.  Double reduction planetary drives are exceptionally powerful and are positioned rearward allowing more contact points between the sprocket and the track delivering unparalleled traction forces and better track durability.
