Four Pillars

Designed for Success – The TB260 design features a rounded body for improved visibility and functionality, and the conventional tail swing with reduced overhang provides outstanding stability.

Powerful Dig Forces – Takeuchi’s excellent arm and bucket power provide the perfect combination of power, speed, and versatility at your fingertips. The dual pin position bucket allows even more flexibility to adapt to the job conditions.

Standard Primary and Secondary Auxiliary Circuits – Are plumbed to mid arm for greater attachment versatility.

Automatic Step Down Travel Motors – Provide torque on demand when pushing, climbing, or turning in high speed mode.

Optional Power Angle Blade – Angles 25° left and right greatly reducing the time required to backfill, and the additional float function makes it easier than ever to clean-up.

All Steel Construction – Protects components and ensures long term durability.

Wrap Around Counterweight – Protects key engine and hydraulic components from damage while delivering excellent stability.

Heavy Duty Blade – Integrated gusset reinforcements and large blade cylinder give you the strength and durability you expect from the class leader.

Shut-off Valves – Simplify attachment installation and limit the release of hydraulic oil when changing attachments

Triple Flange Track Rollers – Provide increased roller to rail contact improving track retention.

Optional Segmented Rubber Track – Provides an extremely durable alternative to rubber track systems. Performs well on hard surfaces, and Individual track pads are easy to replace if damaged.

LCD Multi-Informational Display – Is easy to read in all light conditions and provides the operator with outstanding functionality and valuable machine data.

Spacious Automotive Styled Interior – Ensures operator comfort and provides a functional work area with a large multi-information display, and various function switches to improve performance.
