TB280FR Machine Cutout

The side-to-side boom provides unmatched visibility to the working equipment and allows the machine to operate in confined areas.


The heavy duty offset boom structure uses four large kingpins to distribute shock and forces through the main frame for exceptional durability.

Operator Comfort

The pilot operated joystick controls deliver precise and responsive movements that are low effort and reduces fatigue.


The side-by-side radiator and hydraulic oil cooler increases cooling capacity and are easy to inspect, clean and maintain.

Takeuchi Four Pillars


Compact Excavator

The TB280FR features a patented side-to-side (STS) offset boom combined with the tight tail swing for unmatched visibility to the work equipment and enables it to rotate fully with very little overhang.  Its low center of gravity and optimized counterweight placement creates an extremely stable platform with  lifting capabilities similar to that of a conventional machine.
