TB225 Compact Excavator

Designed to work in confined, demanding applications, the Takeuchi TB225 features many advancements in performance and technology that make it an extremely versatile and productive machine. The TB225 sets itself apart by combining features from smaller excavators, such as hydraulically retractable undercarriage, with features from larger excavators, such as electronic throttle control and electronic proportional auxiliary control. All day comfort is provided by an adjustable suspension seat, large floor with integrated foot rests, ergonomically designed pilot controls, and adjustable arm rests.
