Four Pillars

Powerful Turbocharged Engine – Provides increased horsepower and greater torque for improved performance.

Optimized Design – The rounded design features a contemporary look, and the conventional tail swing delivers excellent 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.

Powerful Traction Forces – Automatic step down travel motors deliver powerful traction forces improving performance when backfilling, turning, climbing inclines, and working in difficult terrain and material.

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, automatic climate control, and various function switches to improve performance.

Pilot Operated Joystick Controls – Deliver precise responsive controls, and are low effort reducing fatigue.

Large Travel Pedals – Fully support the operator’s feet for greater comfort and control while traveling. Additionally, pedals are raised off floor to reduce build-up of dirt and debris that can limit or impede travel functions.

Top Glass with Sun Shade – Improves visibility for truck loading or to overhead obstacles, such as, power lines, and the additional sun shade reduces glare for greater operator comfort.

Rear Engine Access – Provides convenient access to daily checks and routine maintenance points.

None Better – The service access hood eliminates the tilt-up cabin, and provides outstanding access to the control valve, hydraulic lines, hydraulic tank, and optional pattern change valve.

Heavy Duty Cooling System – The side by side radiator and hydraulic oil cooler features increased cooling capacity and are easy to inspect, clean and maintain.

Lockable Fuel Fill – Is convenient and secure. A remote gauge is also provided for assistance when refueling. The system also uses a self bleeding system to provide easier restarts if the machine is run out of fuel.
