Check out Takeuchi’s newest excavator, the TB2150R! This new 15t model is one of our largest excavators, second only to the TB2150. The primary difference between the TB2150R and the TB2150 unit is the TB2150R’s fixed boom arrangement and reduced tail swing design.
“The design of the TB2150R makes it an ideal platform for applications that require more compact dimensions and powerful performance,” said David Caldwell, national product manager for Takeuchi. “It’s great for road and bridge work, urban revitalization projects, large scale utility installations and general construction.”
The TB2150R has an operating weight of 34,215 lbs. (rubber track), a maximum bucket breakout force of 22,256 lbs. and a maximum arm digging force of 13,490 lbs. It is powered by a 114 hp DEUTZ TCD3.6L4 turbocharged engine that delivers 338 ft-lb of torque and features a DOC+SCR diesel exhaust aftertreatment system.
The TB2150R offers three working modes – ECO, Standard, and High Altitude – allowing operators to match the working mode to their specific application. Additionally, the hydraulic system includes three standard auxiliary circuits with the primary or high-flow circuit capable of delivering up to 59.2 gpm. The second auxiliary circuit can deliver up to 14.5 gpm, making the TB2150R an impressive attachment platform as well. A factory-installed third auxiliary circuit is also included and serves as a dedicated coupler circuit.
The TB2150R’s spacious cab offers a wide range of advanced features including a deluxe air-suspension seat with heat and a seven-inch, multi-function color display that keeps the operator informed of machine health and performance. The display can also be used to set flow and pressure for a wide range of hydraulic attachments. Automatic climate control, heat and defrost are standard, along with an AM/FM/Bluetooth radio and 24v and 12v power outlets. For low light working conditions, the TB2150R also includes a deluxe LED light package for greater visibility.
For greater peace of mind, the TB2150R also features a 270-degree camera system that helps the operator view a much larger area around the machine. This helps to ensure that the area around the machine is clear, and the machine can be operated safely.
The Takeuchi Fleet Management (TFM) telematics system comes standard on the TB2150R. TFM delivers alerts and machine information such as location, utilization, performance and maintenance status, as well as insights into how and where equipment is being operated.
“We’re really excited to now offer this full sized, feature-rich excavator,” Caldwell said. “By adding the TB2150R to our excavator line-up, we’re providing customers with a larger, more powerful option that can help them tackle a much broader range of jobs.”
